Strategies to deal with resistance for effective change in operations:

  • Facilitation & Support: Managers can head-off potential resistance by being supportive of employees during difficult times. Managerial support helps employees deal with fear and anxiety during a transition period. This approach is concerned with provision of special training, counseling, time off work.
  • Offer Resources: When a change occurs, one of the biggest gripes among employees is that they are unprepared to handle the changes. Provide training classes, equipment and any other resources to not only help them adapt, but also to excel in the changed environment. Help them in any way you can to be more efficient and effective employees before, during and after the changes take place. They may not only stop resisting, but actually feel encouraged and hopeful anytime thereafter that you make changes.
  • Participation & Involvement: When employees are involved in the change effort they are more likely to buy into change rather than resist it.
  • Education & Communication: On of the best ways to overcome resistance to change is to educate people about the change effort beforehand. Perhaps you will take some it into account and other feedback will simply be heard so the employees can express themselves, but they may stop resisting as much if they feel as though they've been heard.
  • Timing: Timing is everything when it comes to change, and if you try to implement major changes all at once or too quickly, your employees may be more likely to resist. Introduce change in measured doses when possible, to give staff a chance to get used to whatever changes you've made. Not only does this ensure the least amount of interruption to your products or services, but also it makes for a happier and thereby more productive staff.
  • Negotiation and Agreement: Managers can combat resistance by offering incentives to employees not to resist change. This can be done by allowing change resistors to veto elements of change that are threatening, or change resistors can be offered incentives to go elsewhere in the company in order to avoid having to experience the change effort. This approach will be appropriate where those resisting change are in a position of power.
  • Manipulation and Cooptation: “Cooptation” (no it’s not misspelled) involves the patronizing gesture of bringing a person into a change management planning group for the sake of appearances rather than their substantive contribution. This often involves selecting leaders of the resisters to participate in the change effort. These leaders can be given a symbolic role in decision making without threatening the change effort.
  • Explicit and Implicit Coercion: Managers can explicitly or implicitly force employees into accepting change by making clear that resisting change can lead to losing jobs, firing, or not promoting employees.

Best of luck
