When fear becomes faith and resistance resolve

I have been involved in about 50 major organisational change programs in the past 25 years.  All have followed a similar path:

The status quo gets disrupted. Fear and resistance follow.

It can get worse before it gets better.

Resilience emerges.

Fear becomes faith, first with a few and then the many.

Resistance then becomes resolve.

Soon people start sharing the story of change with joy about things they once hated with a passion.

We're complex beings us humans yet within us all is a capacity to change what's normal for the common good.  We can in the words of the song, "beat the unbeatable foe and reach the unreachable star."

I wrote the conceiving and achieving highly successful change initiatives manifesto to help you on your change journeys.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
