The first step to designing shared value in any organisation is to first of all enhance the understanding of staff, client and key stakeholder about the leadership structure, various level of leadership authority and some of the dynamics that accompanies it. According to Rouillard & Giroux (2005), reorganising an organisation has key characteristics such are ﬂexibility, performance, accountability, and simpliﬁcation. In as much as these characteristics are very important yet it is also extremely important that values and ethics are introduced as a way of maintaining the governance structure. Agreeing with Mills & Spencer (2005) the essence of developing values within the organisation is to control behaviour and actions. When the values dominate every aspect of the organisational leadership then there is shared responsibility at all level of the
Narrative, constructivist research may be conducive to revealing internalized oppression among the oppressed themselves. ENVIRONMENT Anti-oppression social work proposes a methodology that is responsive to the long-term traumatic nature of oppression. Oppression is a painful experience based on the systemic reversal of the right of self-determination. Therefore, the environment should establish a safe space for reflection and self-inquiry, and should provide ongoing therapeutic support through different stages.
The third proposition advocated that communication should be used to create a community which will increase commitment, trust, and identification with the organization and management. The next proposal looked at uncertainty in that high levels of uncertainty will have a negative effect on readiness to change. The fifth proposition focused on the effect of downsizing creating loss of jobs and feelings of
A Reflection on Critical Theories in Communication and Media: Critical Discourse of Empowerment (FMA 3b) Critical theory is useful in the study of communication and media with respect to the discourse of empowerment and the related concept of emancipation and political correctness and whose roots can be traced to Marxism as adapted by the Frankfurt school. Specifically, critical theory offers frameworks for analyzing the complexities and contradictions of marginalization and resistance in societies. According to Littlejohn and Foss (2009, p. 237), critical theory is not a theory proper but a set of complementary theoretical frames that examine structures of domination in society in order to open possibilities for the emancipation of people, meanings, and values. Further, that critical theory is primarily oriented towards people and critical theorists view social life and lived experience as the subject of inquiry for analysis and interpretation with the hope that they might find ways to shape societies to be more open and equitable for marginalized groups. At first, as a person trained in the scientific method, I would disagree that there exists “critical theories” that can assist us understand and explain communication and media phenomena but after the readings I realized that indeed there is a set of theories under the critical theory framework that are not only explanatory, as traditional theories are, but also emancipatory in nature.
However as this task has examined aides can be given yet inexorability it is dependent upon the social laborers optional judgment of the circumstances. Seemingly it is accordingly imperative as an issue specialist to be mindful of the code of morals, and to talk, examine, question and verbal confrontation with associates and chiefs about issues they may be battling with. At long last, the onus is on social laborers to be intelligent about themselves and how "self" impacts practice and choice making. To complete we must be basically mindful of individual convictions and predispositions, bringing them to light so they don 't unknowingly impact our practice choices, prompting unfairness and out of line appropriation and access to administrations. Administration clients must be put at the heart of social work practice and it is our obligation as social specialists to make any important strides inside our associations to guarantee abuse and imbalance is brought to surface.
Frame analysts usefully state a variety of institutional and speculative limitations that regulate the effective life of a frame, including media progressions, series of protest, state interference, high-class hegemonic operations, and internal social controls underlining the consistency on social movement actors. Given the primary strategic and practical conception of framing used by frame analysts, problems of constancy and duration are largely processes that is beyond the production of meaning within framing itself. If activists and social movement organizations effectively do the strategic ideological work of lining up the frames to popular conceptions of politics and social issues, then frames will reverberate with their target populations. However, left undiscussed are the dynamic uncertainties in the very process of discourse that mitigate against combined action, frames immovability and the
These misbehaviours are a reflection of the poor management of power structures of the organisation. Properly managed these structures would otherwise inhibit the ability for an individual to adopt this form of misbehaviour. As highlighted in this report, these negatively affect not only the individual, but also the organisational, particularly in regards to its culture. This analysis is supported by the use of the video clip referred to throughout, presenting the organisational misbehaviour distinctly, exposing the subsequent response to understand the influence on the
Individuals are driven by purpose and they like to align themselves with leaders who are capable of making a difference 3. Creating a collaborative mind-set is important to an organisation and it helps align the business and is instrumental in aligning the purpose of the organisation and its goals. 4 Create a team, trust them and allow them to step into their leadership role. A leader’s responsibility is to create an environment where people and their talents flourish When a team is provided with purpose, they are capable of creating an infrastructure and establish a culture which has the ability to bring change at all levels in the
Researchers believe that leaders should adapt to the situation and also what is the most important is the essence of leadership than its style. It also talks about leadership as a character or quality. Managerial practises, trust in leadership, and performance is important part of an organization. When managerial practises are carried out effectively they positively affect employee trust in leadership, which in turn influence performance outcome. Also team work plays as a mediating role between trust and organizational performance.
Schriesheim, Tepper and Tetrault (1994) regarded this model of leadership might be as problematic. However, Fiedler’s theory suggests that the leaders can concentrate on task oriented or relationship oriented style (Palestini, 2009). Mintzberg (1973, cited by Carmichael, Collins, Emsell, & Haydon, 2011, p.22) suggests that leaders need to have their own internal leadership; a transformational theory relationship of effective leaders are being debated increasingly (Storey, 2011), which help the organisation implement design leadership. This theory deliberately guide the leaders to consecrate on educating themselves and continuing to grow and develop in order to meet the challenges of the changing world under design centred leadership.
More specifically, by using the two theories together, both the complexities of an individual’s relation with the structural systems of oppression and power can be uncovered, and their personal experience with oppression and power in relation to their unique social interactions and experiences can be understood. Consequently, using intersectionality and life course theory is useful in informing my social work practice in challenging oppression and inequality. The use of intersectionality is crucial in challenging oppression and inequality, as it tackles it from an institutional level. Jones (2000) describes how it is first important to address “instructional racism”, to tackle “personally mediated” and “internalized racism” (pp. 1212 &1213).
The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast Lewin’s and Kotter’s change theories and identify the main concepts. These theories will show how change is essential in order to motivate people for long-term success and how these theories play important roles in the change process for any organization. The similarities and differences of the theories will also be presented. Kurt Lewin identified three stages of change theory (Lewin, 2010). He stresses that all employees should be aware of a need for change from the status quo and take actions based on awareness of change and commit to the effort until new standards are rooted in the organization.
Critical thinking is the idea of analyzing, evaluating and rationalizing issues, concepts, problems, and purpose. Critical thinking is not only utilized in workplaces, but we also use this skill in our day to day life even if we do not realize it. There were times where critically thinking has helped me on many occasion in my personal life. About a few weeks ago, I moved in with two of my friends in an apartment. Unfortunately, a day before I had moved in, it had snowed heavily covering my parking stall, so I parked in my neighbor's stall by accident.
