From the Paper:

"Interesting to note, this researcher contends, that Fairholm (2004, p. 375) cites Kotter (1990) to suggest that leadership constitutes coping with change. Efforts invested in organizational change prove vital, however, helping individuals contend and cope with personal change also are needed, as the human side of change proves to be as uncertain as the workplace's diversity. To help ensure changes prove productive, instead of disruptive, successful leaders need to embrace uncertainty and ambiguity, as they invest efforts to implement change. In addition, when a leader understands ways individuals cope with transitions and change, he/she can remain calm, confident and comfortable during a myriad of individual reactions (Bridges, 1991; cited by Fairholm, 2004, p. 375)."
