The key to school change: Getting comfortable with discomfort
from Edutopia (commentary)
Grant Lichtman, a contributor for Edutopia, writes: "It is an accepted principle of organizational change: Change is hard. We are told that the process of change includes stages of recognition, denial, grief and eventual progress, much like the steps we undergo to overcome loss or addiction. I disagree. One of the central findings of my work with well over 100 schools in the last several years is that, relative to the really hard obstacles and events in life that we all face, changing most school organizations is not hard — it is uncomfortable. There is a big difference."
