Immunity to Change: How to Overcome It and Unlock the Potential in Yourself and Your Organization
by Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey
As professionals concerned with personal and organizational growth and change, we are well aware that simply knowing a change is important doesn’t make it easy to accomplish. We all struggle to one degree or another with the challenges of facilitating a change process that proceeds with integrity and effectiveness, building on all we know of individuals and systems.
“Immunity to Change” reveals a recent study which showed when doctors tell heart patients they will die if they don’t change their habits, only one in seven will be able to follow through successfully. Desire and motivation aren’t enough . . . Based on their research and practice, Kegan and Lahey look at what stands in the way of change and how to break through what holds us in place. Using an Immunity X-ray tool, they offer step-by-step guidance to uncover and address below-the-surface issues that might interfere with the expressed desired change.
At Innolect, we start from a place of curiosity — ask the right questions and discover all the answers. (See “Our Story”) As you work with us, we’re likely to ask many questions as we seek ever-increasing clarity about the complicated constellation of thoughts, feelings, and actions that comprise the “now,” as well as those associated with the desired future state. Together, we’ll examine and determine the best way to leverage strengths and address barriers to change — all to reach your goals.
