What Gets in the Way of Leaders' Change?

People often experienced more stress from changes than they do from seemingly more serious problems such as loss of a close friend or job. Why is that so?

David Engle’s book Ambivalence in Psychotherapy suggests that dealing with ambivalence%20in%20Psychotherapy.jpgambivalence is at the core. According to this psychotherapist leaders are motivated to change on the one hand, and motivated to cling to a status quo on the other.

Have you found that to be true? Maybe it’s why less than 19% of those who list at New Year’s Resolutions – actually change, according to University of Scranton’s John Norcross.

Research affirmed that leaders who balance these two opposing pulls are likely to change with more success.

On one side you face …   On the other …

predictability – unpredictability

fear of failure – confidence to take a risk

faulty beliefs – sense of freedom

supports held – desire to improve

How do you balance the opposite sides of change on one hand and of hanging onto imprtant parts of the past on the other?  In so doing, do you prevent stress that comes with change?
