If you’re going to push for change in your company, people are going to push back. They’re going to ask questions. Good questions. Some people will openly support you, some will discreetly cheer you on, some will throw up (mostly well-intentioned) roadblocks, most will ignore you.
Get used to it.
People are fearful of change. Uncertainty is scary. And there are many legitimate concerns to address when companies face major changes.
But if you can’t get comfortable with the tension, you’ll ease up on the pressure. And pressure is what makes us bend.
