Module 5 Assignment 2 Strategies for Helping a Client Overcome Resistance
In this assignment, you will discuss strategies for helping a client accept feedback that is provided as part of the organizational assessment.

In this assignment, you will discuss some of the reasons for clients to resist feedback and be resistant to change.
Specifically, you will complete the following:
- On the basis of your readings, explain why leaders are sometimes resistant to feedback.
- Discuss ways you can identify resistance. What kinds of behaviors can a client display that would indicate he or she is resistant to feedback?
- On the basis of your readings from the text, articles, and other research, describe some strategies a consultant can use for overcoming resistance.
- Discuss skills and traits that would be important for a consultant to use to help a client overcome resistance.
- By Wednesday, February 13, 2017, post your paper to the M5-Assignment 2 Dropbox.

This may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
