Change is an inevitable part of life, and it is essential for organisations to adapt to changes in their environment to remain relevant and competitive. However, resistance to change by employees is a common phenomenon that can derail even the best-planned change initiatives. Managing resistance to change is fundamental to ensuring a successful change implementation. It requires a thoughtful, strategic and people-centred approach. By communicating clearly, involving people in the change process, providing training and support, anticipating and addressing sources of resistance with empathy, and celebrating successes, organisations can successfully navigate the challenges of change and achieve their goals.
