Research indicates that organizations are in a continuous state of change and that some type of resistance is inevitable. No matter what type of reaction a person has, there is always motion in response to change:
- Some people have a natural tendency to move toward or support change
- Others are noncommittal and typically move away from change
- Still others typically move against change by resisting it and creating resistance to change in others
- The Change Reaction Model shows the three categories of responses to organizational change.
This tool is great for working with individuals and managers going through change as well as to plan organizationally for more effective behaviors and improve organization support systems.
