Immunity to Change™

The Immunity to Change™ method was developed by Harvard University Professions Dr. Robert Kegan and Dr. Lisa Lahey. It shows how our individual beliefs–along with the collective mind-sets in our organizations–combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. By revealing how this mechanism holds us back, Kegan and Lahey give us the keys to unlock our potential and finally move forward. By pinpointing and uprooting our own immunities to change, we can bring our organizations forward with us. This approach offers tools to overcome the forces of inertia to transform your life and your work.

Discover a path to freedom through the Immunity to Change™ method of transformation. Discover the hidden, internal dynamic “protecting” you from the changes you most want to make called the “immune system.”Use the ITC method to create powerful individual or team ITC maps to uncover the hidden immune system that prevents individual, team, and organizational change.

There are several options for you to start overturning your immune system today so that you can accomplish your most important change goals. Learn more about individual workshops, team workshops, and individual coaching:
