I don't thimk you should change what you believe in -- at the least not until you examine the basis of your beliefs and practices and how they fit with today compared to yesterday or years ago. People at work are different today than even 10 years ago. One reason is they are threatened with being fired due to corporate outsourcing. As a result many will respond negatively to you as a consultant due to fear that your work will result in their being fired in essence. They also may respond negatively to you as a way of displacing their frustrations about their work and their career progression. In individual work with managers, executives and other corporate employees -- I have seen that they are very skeptical about consultants and during the first many meetings with them they often hold the question in their heads --"are you for real or a phony making money off me." They may voice this concern only after many sessions - the theme of what I am mentioning is that of trust and it takes time for any consultant to establish trust or earn trust from a client.
