It is an unfortunate reality that not every good idea of an employee is implemented by the company she works for. The idea does not fail because it was not good enough, but because of the willingness of others to accept and promote change.
But what are the reasons why we have problems embracing change? Initially, change feels uncertain and like chaos. Instead of dealing with the anxiety involved in change, many prefer to find excuses to why change cannot take place. Statements such as "we've always done it this way" or "we do not have the ressources" are popular excuses to avoid change. To bring about change, one should ask, "What do you want to keep, change, add or let go of in your company?” By asking this question repeatedly, employees notice themselves where the potential for change lies and are more willing to change.
