Understanding and Coping with Change


Change is everywhere, yet very few people seem to embrace the  concept. We are, for the most part, creatures of habit and follow daily  routines. When change occurs, our activities and thought patterns are  disrupted.

Write a four- page APA formatted paper (excluding the title  and reference pages), using a minimum of three scholarly sources in  addition to the textbook, analyzing the internal and external factors  contributing to an individual’s resistance to change.

Describe a situation where you or someone you know was resistant to change as identified in one of following areas:

  1. Self-interest
  2. Lack of understanding
  3. Lack of trust in management
  4. Differing assessments of the need for change
  5. Low tolerance for change

Explain whether the resistance to change was caused by an internal or  external factor. Using Kotter’s theory for change, provide a plan for  overcoming that resistance. What will be done and how will you know that  the plan has worked?
