Leading Change – Leveraging Resistance


Our daily lives are filled with change – large and small. Any change stirs up the response of resistance. Resistance is feedback and feedback is a resource. We often find ourselves in the role of “change agent” and facing disgruntled clients, customers, participants and others.  For our organizations, reducing this resistance is critical to meeting deadlines and keeping costs under control. Careers are made (or broken) on how we respond to changing priorities, systems, leadership, and much more.

Whether it is your own response or the resistance you get from others, in this program we will explore the causes and at least five things you can do to leverage this overlooked resource.  

Resistance is an integral part of Change Management Area of Expertise in the new ASTD Competency Model.  The skills and knowledge are also imbedded in Instructional Design and Coaching.



  • Describe the types of resistance we frequently encounter
  • Explore the root causes of resistance
  • Identify techniques to effectively respond to resistance
  • Begin to develop your personal strategy for reducing resistance
