Are you open to change?

March 8, 2011

Are you open to change? Some people aren’t and no matter what you do or how you explain something, they have already made up their mind and are committed to a course of action. 

I recently was engaged by a client to do a review of a corporate brochure – a quick and easy job. Anyway, I made my suggested comments via track changes and explained why I thought these changes needed to be made e.g.  – ” You have repeated this statement in the preceding paragraph” or “You need to explain what this term means.”

The response?

Thank you but no.

They disagreed with every single comment.  And rejected every single change.  And yet they were so happy that they asked me to do more reviews.

Why? I have no idea at all.
