Defenders of the status quo never quite have the same goals in mind as the leader who wants to improve. Improvement and progress are not the “win” of the DSQ. They aim only for business as usual. Anything that changes that becomes a threat to both their comfort and probably their power and influence. The DSQ can and should have a voice but the leader must be take every opportunity to make clear that business as usual is not the goal. After that, the leader should plan to ignore all efforts that defend the status quo and consistently move forward. DSQs will eventually find comfort in the new vision as soon as it becomes a reality long enough to be considered business as usual. Then they will vehemently defend that which they opposed when it becomes time to progress again.
