Change is everywhere, yet very few people
seem to embrace the concept. We are, for the most part, creatures of
habit and follow daily routines. When change occurs, our activities and
thought patterns are disrupted.
Write a four- to five-page APA formatted paper (excluding the title and
reference pages), using a minimum of three scholarly sources in addition
to the textbook, analyzing the internal and external factors
contributing to an individual’s resistance to change.
Describe a situation where you or someone you know was resistant to change as identified in one of following areas:
Lack of understanding
Lack of trust in management
Differing assessments of the need for change
Low tolerance for change
Explain whether the resistance to change was caused by an
internal or external factor. Using Kotter’s theory for change, provide a
plan for overcoming that resistance. What will be done and how will you
know that the plan has worked?
