Abstract

Seeing how your self-protective motivations systematically prevent you from achieving exactly what you most desire is necessary. Insights can be powerful, even exciting, but they do not necessarily lead to transformation. You need a structure to help channel your aspirations, test and gain distance from your assumptions, and steadily build a new set of strategies for bridging the gap between your intentions and behavior. This chapter outlines a process for overcoming your immunity to change once the problem has been diagnosed. This chapter is excerpted from ‘Immunity to Change: How to Overcome It and Unlock Potential in Yourself and Your Organization'.
