The effectiveness of change implementation in an organization depends on the level of individual readiness for change. Low level of individual readiness can cause resistance to change. This study was aimed to test the role of psychological capital (psyche) to individual readiness for change (IRFC) moderated by perceived organizational support (POS). Data were collected using the individual readiness for change scale, the psychological capital scale and the perceived organizational support scale. The subjects were 351 employees of Local Government in Yogyakarta that embrace the changing position (in passing). Moderated regression analysis was used to test the hypothesis. Data analysis showed that both of psycap and POS play a role as predictors to IRFC (R 2 =0.350; p0.05). This research underlines the importance of resilience as psycap’s dimension to increase the individual readiness for change in an organization
