Conquering Immunity to Change

Immunity to Change Map

Looking forward to digging into Keegan & Lahey’s Immunity to Change book this weekend on the beach …

An old habit is a lot like a cow stuck on the second floor landing: you can’t throw it out the bedroom window; you have to coax it down the stairs and out the front door one step at a time.”

“…Part of doing this work is recognizing that your built-in resistance to change is actually a brilliant strategy for protecting a part of you from change by rejecting new behaviors, hence the term “immunity” (Kegan, 2009:43).  This resistance serves as an “anxiety management system”, ingeniously allowing you to avoid confronting your greatest fears: letting go of assumptions you are so certain of that you’ve never examined them….”

What will you think about changing ?
