donhornsby's curator insight, December 29, 2012 4:30 PM

(From the article): Since people tend to avoid confrontation, especially with authority figures, passive resistance is more common in organizations than most of us realize. And sometimes it’s actually a good thing — it causes managers to avoid impulsive actions, think through implications of change, get people on board, and deal with emotional issues. Most of the time, however, passive resistance undermines a leader’s ability to get things done quickly and effectively. In fact it often puts leaders in the untenable position of confidently charging ahead — only to later discover that the team was not fully on-board.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 23, 2012 1:43 PM

(From the article): Interestingly, our brains may be wired to selectively pay more attention to negative information. As a result, over-reaction and panic can often occur. However, utilizing "bad" news wisely - can become a clear contributor to future success and survival. Predictably, most of us need a plan, to wade through the emotional "muck" and reach the safe shore on the other side.
