FEAR: There was a time in the corporate world when people could duck and hide when a new process or technology was rolled out. The ‘this too shall pass’ mindset, while unproductive, was a known response, and leaders knew how to deal with the challenge. Conversely, change in today’s business climate has all the intrigue, politics, and ruthlessness of a Game of Thrones episode. Hostility, fear, and in some cases, outright sabotage are part of daily life on a project. Organizations need change management skills now more than ever to help identify resistance and provide holistic solutions that engender confidence, trust and buy-in.
