Resistance to Change

"Resistance to change is the action taken by individuals and groups when they perceive that a change that is occurring as a threat to them."
"Resistance is a natural response to change and recognising and manging resistance is a key skill for the effective change manager.
Resistance is a healthy part of any change process. Manage it effectively and it can strengthen your change initiative. Ignore it and it can quietly undermine all your great intentions."
