In the innovation management space, there are numerous ways to produce and process change. As an innovation analyst for several innovation strategy teams, I’ve seen everything from a three-step innovation process to a fourteen-step innovation process. The challenge of defining an innovation program by a process, however, is that it implies that there is a natural end to innovation.

(From the article): We’re in a world full of opportunities. Some of them look scary, but they are definitely out there to make our world a better place. Every stage of the emotional roller coaster is normal and to be expected. When you are mindful and manage the emotions consciously, you can become the change you want to see in the world.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, December 1, 12:16 PM

What we resist, persists.  Change is a part of life and something we must embrace.  True leaders understand this.

Great Infographic: Reasons Why Employees Resist Change and How to Guide Against Resistance

Great Infographic: Reasons Why Employees Resist Change and How to Guide Against Resistance | Inspire to Change | Scoop.it
We all know that employees often resist change, but why is this? This infographic identifies twelve common reasons that employees are resistant to change, such as loss of control and bad communication strategy. It also outlines a few strategies that managers can use to help overcome this resistance. While 55% of change objectives meet their initial objectives, only 25% sustained these gains over time. To ensure long-lasting success, it’s important to take a proactive approach to employee resistance.

The Three Phases of Transformational Change

The Three Phases of Transformational Change | Inspire to Change | Scoop.it
Have you ever started out on a new path, a new philosophy or even just tried to introduce something new at work. Maybe it was a simple as trying to convince your bosses that "Dress Down Fridays" are a good idea and won't tarnish the firm's image. And did you notice what your idea had to go through to be accepted?

All change -- I've come to the conclusion -- goes through three main stages. This is Adapted from 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer's three stages of truth -- which is that "all truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

My personal interpretation of this goes for transformational change too. Whether that's you suddenly telling your Mediterranean meat-eating family that you're suddenly giving up meat (that was me), or you're trying to introduce as company newsletter (me again) or you're telling your mates that you're giving up your safe corporate office job to become a coach and author (me again!) -- you will undoubtably encounter:
