One of the most challenging experiences you'll ever encounter as a consultant is dealing with your client's resistance to change.

We get blindsided by this all-to-common reality because we are only working with our clients because they at some point expressed a desire to change.

But when reality hits - they act like it was OUR idea.

Let me explain what is happening inside your client and why they are all of the sudden backpedaling on their commitment. 

They think that if they change and mature, they are going to become something that they don't want to be, which in most cases some mythical image of a large bureaucratic company that has lost its ability to have fun and be creative.
