The language "resistance to change" is seriously unhelpful. This phrase
implies that we humans have some innate resistance to change, which of
course is nonsense. Even when we get past the original notion, the
wording implies that the main probem is psychological. Now, I have been
reading the comments you all make and I understnd you are beyond these
shallow notions, but the language pushes us back to that original
understanding. Personnally I think there are always lots of very serious
barriers to change, including cognitive, psychological, and habitual on
the individual level and even more complexities for the group / org
levels. I would like to suggest that we stop talking about "resistance to
change" and start talking about "barriers to change".
