#71: Why do People Resist Change?

Why do people resist change? In today’s episode of Finding the Upside, I am talking about the common issue of human resistance to change.  More specifically, I am exploring how that relates to the resistance that many people have with embracing VIRTUAL as an opportunity – why is that? Is it the technology that scares so many people, or is it the unknown, or is it that the meaning applied to it is negative?  Maybe it is a little of all of these elements.  I am diving into the reluctance to embrace virtual events post-pandemic and the discussion challenges this mindset by highlighting success stories even of highly successful people that transition to virtual events. I discuss the psychology of change and the need to confront discomfort that may be caused by it. I am sharing my own experience moving people to embrace change and the evolution of technology and its impact encouraging you to see change as an opportunity rather than an obstacle. If you want to get some insights on navigating the ever-evolving landscape and discover the power of embracing change for personal and professional growth, then this episode is for you!  Let’s get started!
