"Understanding Resistance to Change: Its Processes and Sources"


PRESENTATION SUMMARY:

Research has demonstrated, study after study, that 1/3 of organizational change efforts fail, and as many as 2/3 do not meet their intended objectives. The reasons for this grim organizational change failure rate are many, but one of the leading causes is human resistance to change. In this session, Dr. David Szabla presents a multi-dimensional view of human resistance to organizational change that captures resistance in all its complexity.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Participants in the program gain a deep understanding of how individuals, groups and organizations react to organizational change, i.e., how beliefs, emotions, and intentions interact with one another and generate a behavior toward a change. In addition, participants explore the sources of resistance, i.e., how the content of the change, the processes used to lead change recipients through a change, and the context of the change (the internal and external conditions surrounding the change) trigger reaction. At the end of the session, participants not only have a deeper understanding of resistance to organizational change, but they have learned about change leadership practices that can bring about more successful change. Participants will also gain a deep understanding of how change recipients react to an organizational change: its components and processes. In addition, participants learn the different stimuli that lead to specific reactions. Finally, participants explore strategies that can lead to positive reactions among change recipients during an organizational change.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:

Dr. David Szabla leads the Master of Arts in Organizational Change Leadership Program at Western Michigan University where he teaches courses in group dynamics, large-scale organizational change, and organization design. His research and writing centers on resistance to change and the relationships among the content, process, and context of organizational change. Recently, Dr. Szabla completed a study that explored the relationship between change agent strategy and organizational change content. He is also developing and validating two measures: one that assesses perception of change strategy as perceived by those undergoing an organizational change and one that assesses receptivity to organizational change along cognitive, emotional, intentional, and behavioral dimensions.
 
Dr. Szabla is chief editor of a new Palgrave McMillan Handbook titled, Palgrave Handbook of Organizational Change Thinkers. The handbook introduces readers to the treasures of thought about change in organizations by profiling the great thinkers of organizational change from Lewin to Scharmer. Dr. Szabla’s consulting expertise centers on organization design, leadership development, change management, learning systems design, process reengineering, and strategic communication design. He has been published in Research in Organizational Change and Development, Human Resource Development Quarterly, Emergence: Complexity and Organization, and The International Journal of Knowledge, Culture, and Change Management. He is a member of the Management Consulting and Organization Development and Change Divisions of the Academy of Management, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the International Leadership Association.
