Fear of

change

#1
Fear of losing jobs

When John Kay invented the


flying shuttle, it was
considered such a threat to
labor that weavers mobbed
him and destroyed the mold.

When people feel that a business change is


a threat to their job security, that
the change will eliminate the need for their
job, they will resist change.

People are more concerned about the


risk of loss than they are excited by the
prospect of gain.

Change is resisted because it


can hurt.
When new technologies
displace old ones, jobs can be
lost, prices can be cut,
investments can be wiped out.

There is considerable revenue


associated with the current
successful model. Careers have
been built on its growth.
Any change to a new model
threatens those revenues and
those reputations.

People sometimes resist organizational change to save


face.

If they go along with the change, they think it would


mean that they would admit that some of their previous
decisions or beliefs were wrong.

A major reason people resist organizational change is that


they think they will lose something of value as a
result.
People focus on their own best interests and not on those
of the total organization.

When people feel that a certain change
