The Importance Of Resistance To Change
Their failure to consider the implications involved in its implementation, to acknowledge the need to educated and to fully communicate the need for the change to employees are some of the main causes generating their resistance (Harrison, 2005). This is why it will be in the best interest of the organization to temporarily suspend the new policy and to refocus their efforts in education the employees in the need for the new policies (Harrison, 2005). Along with that, their focus should also include the creation of open communication settings to allow the employees to express their concerns, feelings, and discomfort with the new policy. Doing so will assist our leadershi to regain their trust, to develop plans to gain their support to the new policy, and to minimize their resistance (Harrison, 2005; Trice & Bayer, 2005).
