“Faces of Resistance and Resistance to a Consultant” Please discuss the following:
- The text provides 14 faces of resistance. Select three of these types of resistance, and create a brief scenario in which it might occur. From a consultant’s viewpoint, prioritize the scenarios from most difficult to least difficult to handle and state why you think that way.
- Read about resistance to change in an article titled “The Tower of Babel and the Ralley Driver: Understanding and Negotiating through Resistance to Organizational Change” located at http://www.regent.edu/acad/global/publications/jpc/vol1iss2/cohen/cohen.htm. From the article, there may come a time when it is best to end a project rather than continue to face resistance. Predict what symptoms or signs might be present if it is best to make this choice.
