(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.

(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.

(Great Thought) Most people work hard to create stability in their lives only to find that much is out of their control. No need to beat yourself up about it. As the old Yiddish proverb says: Man plans, God laughs. Business is at its best when it is progressive and disruptive. Why not welcome the disruption? Following these tips will allow you to incorporate change management as a stable shelter in the chaos of today's world. Then you can effectively capitalize on the new opportunities brought on by steady change.
