IN THIS SUMMARY

Companies spend thousands of dollars every year on programs intended to create learning cultures and drive organizational change. Though initially it might look on the surface like change is taking place, time and time again these programs are unsuccessful at achieving the fundamental long-term changes that are desired. The problem is that people possess an inherentimmunity to change -- a protective and adaptive mindset that brings personal rewards from resisting change. People are often unaware of this mindset and try to make behavioral changes that are effective in the short term but ultimately fail in long term. In Immunity to Change, Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey explain how individuals and organizations can break through that immunity to change to achieve desired and long-lasting results.
