Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video Fear of change, part of Enterprise Agile: Changing Your Culture.
- I've always been a bad swimmer.…Over the years I've been on many swim teams…and tried different styles, but it doesn't matter.…I'm just not a very good swimmer.…When I was 15, I was on my first swim team.…My coach decided to put me in a race…where I competed in the breaststroke.…He helped me onto the dive platform,…and I got up in front of dozens of families.…My legs trembled on the cold platform…as I stood there in my tiny blue swimsuit.…He put his hand on the platform and said,…"Don't fight your fear.…
"It's your body's way of telling you you're ready."…There's a misconception about change.…People often think that to make an impact,…you'll need a powerful leader with a clear vision.…There's an idea that everyone will listen…to the leader and bravely fall in line behind the change.…In reality an organizational change…is more like group therapy.…There are large groups of people…who want to overcome their fears.…They'll want to feel empowered to move slowly…and often unwillingly to make a change.…
That's why fearless change uses the term fear.…
