The world is constantly evolving and organizations need to transform to keep up with that pace of change. When the pace of change outside an organization gets faster than the pace of change inside an organization; most organizations go extinct. Therefore, change, reinvention and transformation are all part of the new normal today. For those organizations that want to stay relevant in a market place, they must equip their employees to change before they have to.

Employees are people and its normal for them to resist change. Most people prefer predictability and stability over something unknown or unfamiliar.
