Change is a process
Organization Change and transformation are often facilitated with the deliberate intent of encouraging individuals to let go of the past and develop new thinkings about the nature of the new organization and their role in it, while embracing the new organisation culture and behaviours.
How often have we heard quotes like:
"Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change." - Confucius
“Even those who fancy themselves the most progressive will fight against other kinds of progress, for each of us is convinced that our way is the best way." – Louis L’Armour
Change is hard because people overestimate the value of what they have and underestimate the value of what they may gain by giving that up – James Belasco and Ralph Stayer
As much as we might like to make those changes instantly, Change is a process that occurs over time. In many cases, we need to spend as much time reinforcing the change as we did building awareness of the need for change in the beginning.
