Six Ways to Handle Resistance

There is something every leader will face sooner or later…and probably sooner than later. That something is resistance.

What can you do when your team resists change, doesn’t want to get involved, or holds their ground when they should be moving forward?

In a recent Maxwell Leadership podcast, John Maxwell talked about six of thirteen ways to handle resistance.

One way is to realize it is going to happen. As a force of nature, it is going to happen. He also talks about the 20/50/30 rule, taking care of the “me” issue, clarity, and more. Take some time to listen and learn. If you don’t need it now, you will. If you are to be an effective leader, you will need to know how to deal with resistance when it comes.
