Quotebook: When Change Efforts Fail

Share via:

Have you tried more than once to introduce a new system or strategy to your ministry only to feel resistance?  In my pursuit of a better understanding of bringing change (which I end up doing a lot of) I’m reading The Change Monster by Jeannie Daniel Duck.

“When a stagnating company attempts one change effort after another, and repeatedly fails to achieve any lasting result, two damaging things occur: (1) management loses credibility and (2) the rest of the workforce becomes change-resistant.”  The Change Monster, p. 43

Would you say your team or your ministry is highly change-resistant?  You might benefit from The Change Monster.  The metaphor Duck uses throughout the book is outstanding and the strategies she introduces are very transferable to our business.
