Managing Change Resisters: The Keys to Motivating and Gaining Buy-In from Your Most Resistant Employees

When employees resist change, it causes you, your team and the organization big problems.

Morale takes a beating as change resisters’ negativity and constant arguing wears down other employees.

Productivity plummets because the change resisters spend their time focused on fighting the change rather than doing their work. Additionally, you and other employees waste too much time dealing with a change resister’s arguments, complaints and lack of action.

Conflict escalates. Change resisters cause commotions with their outbursts or become argumentative with coworkers. Minor disagreements turn into fights, breaking down communication and teamwork.

As a leader or manager, you often face the task of implementing changes in the workplace, so it’s also up to you to tackle change resistance head on—before it damages your team.

In this audio presentation, we will look at the common reasons people resist change and discuss strategies leaders can use to manage and reduce change resistance. Learn how to:

  • Recognize the active and passive signs that people are resistant to change.
  • Identify common reasons behind resistance to change.
  • Communicate change.
  • Gain buy-in by including several key components in your message.
  • Determine which levers you should pull to turn resisters into promoters.
  • And more!
