Using these five practices frequently and effectively can be a key factor to having a positive influence on others and on an organization. Two ideas from this chapter that I believe are vital when discussing leadership come from the five practices, and those two ideas are: inspiring a shared vision and enabling others to act. When you inspire a shared vision with those that you are leading, and they believe in it,
Individual might possess a number of team roles but the more appropriately team roles are combined, the more successfully members perform. Several authentic team-building actions can be valuable for them, but eventually, to achieve enhanced teamwork organization must get the accurate essentials first. To achieve the common goals and tasks, the leader and team members must be aware of factors of group dynamics and the different team roles that members play in team. Management should focus on how their staffs work in routine basis, and provide staff the tools they need for finishing their
Enforcement of the values and norms implemented begin with those high up the hierarchy of an organization (the leadership). There are various benefits that result from a strong corporate culture. Due to a strong corporate culture, leaders work hand in hand with their employees. The employees learn by example about what is expected of them when they are out in the field even without the supervision of their managers. Employees tend to get more inclined to perform better when they trust the leadership abilities of their
Employees usually play a key role in organizations; they are the supreme resource an organization can have and it is through their involvement and commitment that the organization can become competitive (Sempane et al, 2002 as cited in Griffith, 2013). Organizational commitment has been accepted as an important concept over the last three or four decades because of its relationship and role to organizational effectiveness, and it have been defined, measured, and studied in research in various contexts (Mathieu & Zajac, 1990; Saimir & Jonida, 2013). According to Chiang (2008) when employees cleave to identification and share sense of belonging in an organization, they will consider themselves associated to the organization and will work hard
CHAPTER 5 DISCUSSION In today’s competitive world each and every organization wants to be the best. In order to stand out among the league the organizations have started working upon areas like culture of the organization, providing support to their employees in work and helping them to grow by giving cross training, coaching and education, providing employees to work from home, giving incentives and recognition etc. (Fowler, 2009) The research is done to study the impact of organizational culture on employee commitment. Organizational culture is a pattern of shared basic assumptions which a group learn while solving the problems which they face during an external adaptation and internal integration and the members are taught to correctly
Beside studying organizational structure also learned that excellent planning, strategizing, decision making, and critical thinking are essential for your success. And also know how to deal with change I life and at work, and how creativity, innovation and a spirit of an entrepreneurship are some of the more exciting and important aspects of work today. An organization is a group of people assembled to perform activities that will allow the entity to accomplish a set of strategic and tactical goals and to realize its mission. Organizational structure is the way in which the division of labour, communication, and movement of resources among the parts of an organization are coordinated to accomplish tasks and goals. In an organization, a hierarchy is a way of organizing people and groups according to formal authority.
Critically compare and evaluate three themes or issues related to the practice of leadership discussed in the readings and set text taking into consideration a Biblical worldview. The three themes that are related to the practice of leadership that I will review are Model the way (leading by example) , Inspire a shared vision (leading continuous change) and Enable others to act (giving others the opportunity to lead and make decisions). In the book the Leadership challenge Kouzes and Posner define "leadership as the art of mobilizing others to want to struggle for shared aspirations. The leaders model the way through the principles of how people should be treated and the manner in which goals are pursued. As leaders model the way in the
Lund (2003), Believes that it is this commitment that brings the collective attitude and feelings of working towards common objectives. He says that organizations can attain high productivity when its values are shared equitably by its employees. Accordingly, Robbins (2005), organization culture, through its standards, works as a way of channeling behaviors in to the right direction and shifting them from the undesired direction. This can well be conducted through selecting, recruiting and retaining workers who possess behaviors that best fit the values of the business organization (Hellriegel, D., & Slocum, J.
Disciplines have adopted teamwork as essential in achieving success and their mission statements routinely allude to the importance of teamwork, utilizing such words as cooperation, coordination, collaboration, and Communication as key components. A number of theoretical arguments have been developed to explain why team working might .Lead to improved organizational performance. Some theories focus on the effort and motivation of individual workers and claim that they work harder. Teamwork is the process of working collaboratively with a group of people in order to achieve a goal. The external factors of teamwork are the political, economic, social and technological factors that affect teamwork whiles the internal factors of teamwork constitute leadership style, diversity (culture, talent and personalities) communication, cohesiveness etc.
In a business, if management has knowledge about organizational behavior principles, management will have a strong influence over the employees and employees will show positive behavior at work. As Peter Drucker stated, the important principles of an effective organization leaders are competency, character, compassion and community. I agree with Drucker because these principles are fundamental for any management or leader because they need to show capability for their work, the correct personality towards work and clients and concern about their employees and coworkers. When a manager demonstrates these principles, and understands the correct psychology of each employee, then he will have positive influence and he will be able to motivate their employees the proper way. The employees will succeed, and business will have a competitive advantage.
