Module 2 SLP
Individual Resistance to Change
As we have established, resistance to change occurs at various levels: Individual, group, and organization. Moreover, resistance to change is both a workplace and a personal phenomenon. Therefore, organizational change theory applies in both contexts.
For Module 2 SLP, you will consider either a personal or workplace situation in which you resisted change.
In a well-written 3- to 4-page paper, to include 2 scholarly sources from the Module 2 Background and Required and Optional Readings List, please respond to the following:
Part One: (Description): Describe a situation in which you resisted a personal or an organizational (workplace) change.
Part Two (Application and Analysis):
Identify the specific reasons that contributed to your resistance to change.What measures, if any, were taken (by yourself, by others, by top leadership, etc.) to decrease resistance to change?What was the outcome of the change, and how were the concerns you identified in question 1 of Part 2, resolved?
Part Three (Insights): Now that you have a better understanding as to why individuals resist change,
What insights have you gained that would affect how you would approach this change today?What have you learned that you can use to enhance your ability to lead change?Will you approach the change process differently in the future?
