Overcoming resistance to change has become the holy grail of change management for the HR leader. Leaders so often start with the best intentions to steer people toward bright horizons, and then run into a wall of resistance. We can transition from feeling like we’re working with people and for people, to instead, feel like we’re doing something to them, against them or even in spite of them. Yet, we can only control ourselves.
What looks like resistance in others is an opportunity for us as leaders to ensure that we are giving people what they need to ‘get it, (the Head)’ to ‘want it, (the Heart)’ and to be able to ‘do it (the Hands).’
Agile, proactive leaders intentionally ‘enlighten the Head, engage the Heart and quip the Hands’ to build relationships and get results.
