Abstract

Business dynamics aimed to urge the organization to adapt in order to parlay their competitive advantage. By this,  change  attempts often  inevitable  as  an  effort  to  keep  functioning  on  the  dynamic  condition.  However, change  in  an  organization  is  not  easy,  mainly  when  it  deals  with  a  human  within  the  structure.  This  research aims to untangle the individual factor, which forms their attitude toward change. By this, the study determines two-variable such self-efficacy and employee’s trust in a leader as a predictor of the employee attitudes toward change. Through the sample of 50 employees from a company which facing a change in business process, it was found  that  employees’  self-efficacy  and  trust  in  leader  positively  related  with  the  positive  attitude  toward change. Otherwise, the self-efficacy and trust in leader negatively influence the negative attitude toward change. Through  the  result, managers might gain insight that gaining trust in the executives and gaining employees’ trust within their ability is imperative to acquire a positive attitude towards change.
