    [Personal] Appreciation Is the Magic Glue that Connects

    [Personal] Resistant to Change
    However, there is an advantage to viewing resistance as a personal characteristic. The advantage is that it allows us to give up on the person. Of course, there is also a great danger in viewing resistance as a personal characteristic. The risk is that our view will hold the person in that place. How we view a person becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. We prevent ourselves from ever learning that the person has or could change.
