Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, October 23, 6:12 AM

Cultures tend to resist what they most need to change because people resist changing life-long habits and beliefs that are an engrained part of their personal and professional lives.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 16, 7:57 PM

It is not just fear of the unknown. My experience was there was exceptionally poor communication, top-down oppressive ways of dealing with change, faddish approaches, etc. For example, the implementation of the 7 Habits work and digital technologies was a handful of people's dictates rather than consulting with classroom teachers who were doing the heavy lifting.
