In this post we show you how to recognise the signs of cognitive resistance to change.
Ideological resistance to change is firmly rooted in people’s beliefs. It can be difficult to win these people over unless you demonstrate that the change—or project—you are implementing is compatible with their beliefs.
In Leading Imperfect Change Martin Webster questioned the need to plan in detail when implementing large-scale change. Indeed he argued that detailed planning doesn’t guarantee success. In this post we look at change in complex systems and suggest that we must choose to lead change in new ways.
