In Immunity to Change, authors Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, a pair of Harvard researchers, show how our individual beliefs and the collective mindsets in our organizations combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. By revealing how this mechanism holds us back, Kegan and Lahey give us the keys to unlock our potential and finally move forward. And by pinpointing and uprooting our immunities to change, we can bring our organizations forward with us.
Kegan and Lahey discovered that behind each of our habits is a strongly-held belief that not only keeps us stuck but also fights any change that threatens the status quo. This resistance is so strong, so adaptive, and so systemic that Kegan and Lahey liken it to a finely tuned immune system. This persuasive and practical book, filled with hands-on diagnostics and compelling case studies, delivers the tools you need to overcome the forces of inertia and transform your life and your work.
