Resistance occurs when our expectations are changed. It happens when we run into things that we were not expecting. The orbitofrontal cortex part of our brain looks for unexpected things in our world, so we can run from them. Then the amygdala in our brain tells us to stress out and to focus on survival only. Is it any wonder, then, why we can become so resistant to change sometimes? This fearful state, that our brain can put us in, drives out any hope for true change.

When we’re moving toward change, we have insight of the possibilities that change will cause. Our brain now gives us motivation, and we can form a mental picture of how this change looks, what it will bring, and how we can contribute to it.

I’ve had the privilege of coaching hundreds of leaders in all kinds of different businesses. Every day I get to help leaders and organizations create their best future. I also led my own teams in the corporate world for decades and I know how hard leadership can be. I am still learning every day but after conducting over 5,000 executive coaching conversations, I want to share the insights and tools that I know work for great leaders. Leadership is not a gift, it’s a set of thoughts we create, actions we take and habits we build to get consistently better results.
