“There is nothing more difficult to plan more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system.  For the initiator has the enmity of  all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones.” Niccolo Machiavelli.



It may be easier to blow up an organization then to change it. Just like a home contractor would rather start from scratch instead of trying to repair what is already there. But blowing up the house is not always advisable. So how to you get people to change?  Is it even possible?  The answer is yes, but it maybe the most difficult and dangerous work you will ever do. To minimize those risks you need to have a sophisticated understanding of the values that are tightly held, and may be challenged. . Resistance is based on core beliefs and assumptions that people may be reluctant to explore and even more reticent to expose. How you orchestrate those discussions is a critical for survival.
