All truth passes through 3 stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
~ Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
If you’ve been laughed at, certain people are disapproving and fighting against you, or your character is being assassinated, just know that they are scared of the truth that you are expressing.
As the CEO of team of international change experts, we always come across people, staff, Senior HODs or even the owners who do not like to hear the truth. Why? Because truth can be very painful and in reality not many people can handle the truth.
But truth we must professionally express and stand for, even it means we will not be popular with those who want to maintain the status quo or those who are not willing or too lazy to implement and integrate the changes.
50% of people or staff are resistant to change.
There are many reasons for this resistance. The most common reasons are fear of the unknown, failure or initial confusion, loss of job, income or status, perception of more work, stress or pressure, unskilled or incompetent to implement or integrate the new changes…
That’s why 70% of change initiatives fail because of no buy in, no sense of urgency, strong resistance, and lack of skills or competence to implement.
