This book covers Ten Principles that will help Overcome Resistance to Change in any organization.

It is a concise easy to read compilation of the most effective principles and strategies for overcoming resistance to change. Dr. DeLuca's "Overcoming Resistance to Change" book cuts to the core of one of the most difficult aspects managers face in keeping pace with rapid change.

The Ten Principles covered in this book:

  1. Don't use the model that made you successful.
    Strategy Implementation is not Organizational Change.
  2. Start at the end rather than at the beginning.
    Change is more of a circular than a linear, sequential process.
  3. Treat resistance as the organization's immune system.
    Don't resist resistance.
  4. Treat "head" or intellectual resistance as an issue of perspective.
    You have to see something new before you can do something new.
  5. Treat "heart" or emotional resistance as an issue of self esteem.
    "Saving face" is a critical issue in making change happen.
  6. Treat "feet" or behavioral resistance as an issue of habit.
    Behavioral Resistance has both systematic and cultural components.
  7. Diagnose the organization's resistance profile
    Change what only needs to be changed.
  8. Activate the organization's own change cycle.
    Organizations are capable of changing themselves once they are properly stimulated.
  9. Prevent resistance from ever arising.
    Help the organization learn the "Many-Few-Many-Few" process.
  10. Remember that organizational change is based on "pull through" not "push through" thinking and design.
