Change and Leadership
Creating change might be difficult; however, using effective change models, techniques, and approaches will most likely ensure success. Through means of assessment, leaders can determine where change is needed within an organization. When considering change, it is essential to consider the current state of the organization and where the organization is headed—what is the ideal future state? Only after these two points are considered—where you are and where you want to be—can you determine the method for obtaining that future state.
For this Assignment, review this week’s resources and the scenario provided.
You have just been hired as the president of a Fortune 500 corporation. After observing operations and talking to many people at all levels of the organization, vendors, and customers, you are shocked to realize that the organization is in accordance with each of the items on the “Psychopathic Disorder Checklist.” You are very committed to changing these characteristics within the organization. How would you lead a change as a leader of the company?
