IT Cadre's Trusted Insight®
Enduring Cultural Change
Rob Hyde, Senior Director, Delivery
No one is against change.
How many times have you heard some form of, "People hate change"? It sure seems to be true when you're trying to get people to change. On closer inspection, that common phrase can mask what's really happening, and prevent leaders from seeing the real obstacle.
People don't hate change; they hate change that's bad for them. I haven't run into anyone yet who would refuse a pay raise, a better work climate, a reduction in gas prices or a promotion with a corner office and unlimited vacation. Rational people love change they believe is in their interest and generally oppose change they believe is bad for them or their team.
When implementing an important transformation, you'll encounter resistance. You'll encounter the maxim, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast", often attributed to Peter Drucker. It's helpful to remember that the cultural resistance is not to change in general. The resistance is based on the perception that this particular change is bad for me, or for my team.
Understanding this seemingly simple truth can unlock a solution path. Once you identify the resistance as rational people resisting change they believe is bad for them, you can approach the solution through empathy and curiosity. Work to understand from their perspective the good things they feel like they'll lose if they adopt the new way. This discovery will likely be hard, and will result in more work and in changes to your strategy. In the long run, this work of empathy and curiosity is the key to enduring cultural change.
