Change often comes with resistance in both our professional lives and our personal lives. Change is rarely comfortable. When the Blue Wahoos baseball stadium was built in downtown Pensacola about a decade ago, Quint Studer, who led the effort, faced tremendous resistance to change. Ultimately, the stadium and baseball team became a true catalyst for positive change in our community. Listen as Quint shares the lessons he learned while leading his organization through community resistance to change.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
What key actions can we take to manage resistance to change on our teams?
How can we get buy-in as we communicate change to different audiences?
What driving factor can help take us across the finish line when leading change?

I truly believed in my heart of hearts this was going to be the right thing to do. In any change position, if you’re not all in on values, you won’t have the resiliency it takes to get it over the finish line.”
