We’ve now encountered a wealth of information about change barriers and resistances, how to overcome those challenges, and leading a successful change. Now it’s your turn. Provide an example of a successful change, and explain why it was a success. Include at least one challenge that incurred and how the challenge was overcome.

  2. Discuss the barriers and resistances that occurred. Explain why.
  3. How did the organization overcome those challenges?

This week you read the issue of fuel efficiency in the United States.

For your discussion assignment this week, share with other class members some actions that you can take to reduce your dependence on oil and the gasoline derived from it. Which of these actions do you actually plan to take?
