This is important to managers because they need to motivate people to respond to changing circumstances and goals.
When it comes to employees making change, they don’t resist change itself. They resist the pain of change and fear of the unknown that comes with it. This leads many employees to think more defensively, hold back, and resist pursuing success and playing to win. In the workplace, leaders who show concern and interest in their employees’ lives and a predictable set of rules create a healthy attachment that empowers others to embrace the risk of pursuing success.
