Change is very often seen as loss - loss of attachments, structure, meaning, and control. Change also triggers a sense of instability and generally people prefer stability to instability. As a result, resistance to change as a defense against loss and the prospect of instability is a very normal human reaction driven by fear. Resistance is a serious obstacle to change and can completely derail a change effort if left undiagnosed and unaddressed.
