Overcoming a Blocker with Dr. Jamie Gruman

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Phil is joined by Professor of Organizational Behaviour Dr. Jamie Gruman to discuss overcoming a blocker during change.

Blockers are people who raise barriers to organizational change and your success. They either oppose what you are doing or want it done differently. This form of resistance is challenging because it is intentional and leverages the blocker’s influence through authority, relationships, and organization knowledge. Inaction is not a good option because the barriers will remain, and the wrong type of action can lead to escalation and more setbacks.

So, how do you overcome a blocker to achieve your and the organization’s goals and avoid triggering greater resistance?
