Working with Inevitable Resistance

If the change you are enacting is more than skin deep, it will kick up resistance. It’s not uncommon, especially when passion for a vision is running high, to bull-doze resistance… ridicule the nay-sayers, over-ride the back-sliding, speak louder than the ones who lean back and roll their eyes at someone across the table. But what does that do? It sets you up for unsustainability. Even the most dramatic and depth changes (what Don Beck calls gamma level change) brings within in it a foundation, legacy, and substance from the past.
