Most of us who work in organizations have felt the futility of trying to (or being subject to) the dynamic of "pushing the rope."
Rope pushing is the metaphorical representation for forcing that which passively resists the effort.
Why does that resistance exist?
- The effort/initiative/campaign requires uncomfortable CHANGE from the current norm.
- Disparate voices do not feel included, heard, or valued.
- The WHY has not been clearly articulated, the case not made.
