Discuss the implications, according to Kotter, of resistance to  the change process. 

According  to Kotter if a person is resistant to change and they feel strongly  about not wanting to change then you need to get them out of the way. It  doesn’t matter who the person is if they are adamant about resisting go  around them and in order to get the change done. While it is normal to  try and persuade the person to be on your side Kotter says don’t do it  because if they feel strongly against the change they are not going to  change their minds. They might tell you that they are okay with it but  in reality they aren’t.  

The  implications according to Kotter of resistance to the change process is  that if a person is resisting the change and if you continue to keep  them in the loop they will cause so much damage to the change process  that the changes will be undermined.  You will have people going behind  your back and telling other people that the changes are stupid or they  will agree to do something and then conveniently forget to do what you  want. In order to avoid this problem, you have to keep them out the  equation and make the changes around them.
