This session on handling resistance to change aims to help you to recognise when change is being resisted and understand why people may resist change. It then provides some suggestions that will help you to overcome that resistance, and bring the team with you, limiting the negative effects that change can sometimes bring.

In particular, by the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Anticipate resistance to change and identify things you can do to minimise it
  • Recognise the signs of passive and active resistance to change
  • Suggest why people resist change
  • Take practical steps to overcome resistance to change
