Creating change in established organizations is challenging but doable.

Knowing the inner workings is key to bypassing organizational resistance. The dynamics within traditional organizations can be complex, often playing out in intricate political maneuvers during private meetings. Success in introducing fresh ideas hinges on smart office diplomacy—engaging individuals directly to gain their support and endorsement.

People may cling to the “this is how it’s done” mindset, making support by allies often limited to quiet solidarity. You may find people supportive of your work and ideas, but support won’t go any further for fear of appearing as though you are deviating from the norm.

Pushing for change can lead to isolation, reassignment, or termination. Organizational politics are intricate, requiring savvy diplomacy to win support for new ideas.

Expect pushback, but don’t be discouraged if you face resistance. Progress on important initiatives that benefit people relies on fresh, cross-boundary thinking.

Be bold in presenting your vision—change is tough, but its rewards are boundless.
