Title: Managing Resistance to Change
Author(s): Baker, Sharon L.
Subject(s): Library personnel management
Abstract: While some resistance to change is inevitable, this article suggests that inept management strategies can often cause the normal unease associated with a change to accelerate into more severe problems. Reasons for negative reactions to change are explored and practical solutions, based on findings of research studies, are offered.
