Cover of Practicing Positive Leadership


One of the toughest nuts to crack for a manager delivering change is overcoming resistance. We've alluded to this issue in earlier lessons, but here Kim Cameron examines a famous management model: Kurt Lewin's field theory of change, which is just a clever way of saying that for any change you want to implement, there will be forces supporting your efforts and forces opposing them.
