Comprehensive Learning Assessment

1.What symptoms of resistance to change have you experienced? Have you experienced
both active and passive forms? Have you experienced them as a resistor yourself (as a
recipient of change)? Have you experienced them as someone responsible for the
management of change (as an initiator of change)?

  1. Which of the various reasons for resisting change do you believe to be the most
    common? What are your “top three” in this regard?
  2. Which of the various reasons for resisting change do you believe to be the most difficult
    to deal with (as a manager)? What are your “top three” in this regard?
  3. When senior managers resist change at the strategic level, they are in a position to
    cause more damage than employees resisting changes at the operational level. Have
    you worked in a company where you believe that management resistance to change
    may have existed? As a manager yourself, what would you try to do to prevent this from
    happening?
  4. Which approach to the management of resistance attracts you? What is the reason for
    your choice? For example, is it because you think it to be the most effective or does it
    also relate to a view that you have about how people should be managed?
