Douglas College student research essay submitted as partial requirement for BUSN 1210 course. Faculty sponsor to submit this essay to DOOR: Neil Brown MA.
Fundamental management responsibility is to lead change effectively. Compared to structure or technology, people require the most skills and knowledge from managers to support them through the change process. Managers must prepare employees to be ready and willing to change. Managers must know how to lead and control effectively to obtain the most value for the organization. This paper explains the four response types which define the characteristics and behaviours people exhibit while dealing with change. It illustrates two views of the change process and how they affect the organization. Employee resistance, associated stress, and recommendations for managers to help employees overcome these challenges are discussed.
