"Change Blossoms Here"

Welcome to 

Home of the DC Chapter of the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP DC).

The mission of ACMP DC is to connect and engage the DC metro area change management community to build knowledge, advance the discipline, and lead meaningful and lasting organizational change.


ACMP DC is partnering with the ACMP Metro & Eastern New York Chapter to Present Use Change Objection & Resistance as a Gift

We can view change resistance and objection as a nuisance and something we don't want to deal with but, what if we looked at it differently? What if we could better understand why change resistance and objection occurs and have solid strategies and actions to turn it into a valuable gift! In this session, we learn about the 5 common types of change resistance and objection, and their root causes, and identify some creative ways to leverage change resistance and objection to our advantage. And, you become a critical part of our solutions when you join a small group breakout session and strategize real-life change resistance and objection business scenarios. You walk away from the session with a handy quick reference guide for how to best use change resistance and objection as a gift!  


  • Define the most common types of resistance (symptoms) and their root causes.
  • Identify actions and strategies to manage and mitigate each type of resistance.
  • Learn and engage in 2 dialoguing tools for managing change resistance and objection.

Target Audience: All levels of Change Professionals
