Change is hard for any organization to absorb, depending on the culture of the organization, people can be changed agnostic or change prone
Change can make people right thinkers or a wrong thinker about the impact of a difference. For some people, change can be useful; for others, it can be not so good. Constructive changes are supposed to be suitable for most of the times for most of the organizations. In general, people have resistance to change; they like the status quo. Changes have done all of a sudden can disturb or disrupt people's thought processes.
You have to stick with the change for some time before it becomes a regular habit to absorb the change and take it in stride. You can't change anyone. However, you can make people improve their practices. As a great author James clear in his book " Atomic habits" says:
- Build a system for getting 1% better every day.
- Break your bad habits and stick to good ones.
- Avoid the common mistakes most people make when changing habits.
- Overcome a lack of motivation and willpower.
- Develop a stronger identity and believe in yourself.
- Make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy).
- Design your environment to make success easier.
- Make tiny, easy changes that deliver significant results.
- Get back on track when you get off course.
- And, most importantly, how to put these ideas into practice in real life.
