Positive Energy Will Drive Your Change Initiative

In the bell curve of change, we often observe (left side) 5 to 10% of the people are resistant to the change and (right side) 5 to 10% of the people energized and motivated towards the change.  We spend a lot of time and energy trying to move the resisters  … here is way to reframe the situation.

Imagine that the bell curve turns magically into a VW Beetle and the left side (those resistant to the change ) represent the breaks on the car and the right side (those energized by the change) represent the accelerator.

Respect the Negative Energy, but don’t stay focused on that side, or you may find yourself keeping your foot on the break and not going anywhere.  Take your foot and move it to the accelerator and you will find the energy to drive your change initiative forward.
