Resistance to change discussion Unfortunately, his efforts have been met with considerable resistance to change. A typical staff comment is, “Why do we need all these extras? Everything is fine as it is.” How can Jorge deal with the employees’ resistance to change, to enable him to move the change process along?” One of the commonly cited causes for the lack of success of organizational change is “resistance to change”. One of my text quotes Maurer as saying “Resistance kills change” while quoting Foote as saying “resistance is one of the nastiest, most debilitating workplace cancers[and claims that] there isn't a more potent, or thoughtful or equal opportunity killer of progress and good intentions.” The same text quotes change as being good for those causing the change since they do not understand the effects of the change being forced on the workers, thus contributes towards the workers desires to sabotage the change.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
