Resistance to Change | Is there such a thing as irresistible change?

May 27, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 8:45 am

What it’s about:


What we resist, persists and any leader in the new normal can certainly relate to people holding onto the old in hope that change will go away. Let’s face it, history has taught us that change in business (and life) is unavoidable, complex and ever accelerating. In today’s hyper-connected world, resistance can take on a whole new shape and size with the democratisation of technology and collaborative tools.


Is there such a thing as irresistible change? What if the struggle has more to do with our own perceptions and beliefs around conflict and resistance? Are there any tools and models that might help us tackle resistance in more inclusive and dynamic ways?


Technology certainly continues to play a role here, but there is a huge pressure on leaders and consultants to reframe, navigate and resolve resistance empathetically if we move forward into the future of work.


What we will cover:


In this upcoming panel session we will:

  • Unpack what change resistance means in our new world of work
  • Reframe and getting comfortable with change resistance
  • Consider how change maturity is a factor in executive / sponsorship resistance
  • Discuss the psychology and neuroscience of resistance
  • Share some of our tools and techniques to navigate every day change resistance

Space for Change

A collective of like minded transformation consultants who are passionate about human-centric approaches to change. We catch up monthly and talk about topics that matter.

Why? Because everybody deserves to find their place, now and in the future, so we can make history.

At Earth2Mars, we believe and invest in our human potential to expand our horizons and continuously learn and grow together. For us, our mission is to see humanity become an interplanetary species, but how can we ever hope to coexist on Mars if we still haven’t learned to do this on our home planet first?
