Leadership and Change DB1 Questions
Post an answer to one of this weekâ€™s discussion board questions. Choose a question that has not been answered, until every question has been answered. If every question has been answered, then you may choose a question that has already been answered once before. If two other students have already posted answers to a question, then you must choose a different question. This limitation does not apply to your response to another studentâ€™s post. You may respond to any studentâ€™s post that is interesting to you no matter how many people have already responded. You are required to read all student posts and responses, but only respond to one answer.
Answers and responses should be substantial for full credit. Both writing quality and the content of your answers are important. Answers should have at least three paragraphs (15 sentences) and responses must be at least two complete paragraphs (10 sentences). Your response must add new information to the discussion. Use complete sentences, avoid unexplained lists, and avoid slang. Use a professional writing style at all times.
Remember to include at the top of your posting, the chapter, question number, and the text of the question you chose. Then include the page number(s) in the textbook where you found information about your question. Just to make this a little easier, you do not need to include APA style citations or references in your discuss board. You may use personal experiences, internet sites, journal articles, or books to help with your answer. You may not copy and paste answers or responses from sources. Answers and responses must be written by you. Please put your name at the bottom of each answer and response to help me keep the scores straight.
The assignment: Post one answer to a question of your choice below (the question may have multiple parts, so answer all parts), and write one response to another studentâ€™s answer. Choose a question that has not already been answered by another student. Write your response to another student rather than answering a second question. You must label your answer as â€œANSWERâ€ and your response as a â€œRESPONSE.â€ If you wish to make an additional comment (more than one response), please label these posts as a â€œCOMMENT.â€
Describe the steps involved in creating a high-impact development plan, you need find in it where it is in the textbook, i will give you a example and you need respond it. Below is example.
Explain how the third month of a new leader’s tenure differs from the first two months according to the new leader’s onboarding roadmap.
The first 90 days will be a busy time for the new leader, especially if this is a new work environment. The first two weeks of a new leadersâ€™ tenure should be spent becoming familiar with the environment. New leaders need to meet superiors, peers and followers to build a relationship and gather as much information as possible about the organization culture and team. The new leaders should identify allies and those in the organization that will try to undermine his/her efforts. Meeting with â€œstarâ€ team members to gather input on how the team performance could be improved should also be done early in this time frame.
Goals and team direction should be established within the first two months. Using the information gathered by peers, superiors, followers, benchmarking information and other stakeholders, the new leader should evaluate the team performance and its members. If there is a need for personnel change the new leader should discuss this with his/her superiors. All this needs to be accomplished while maintaining the performance of the team. A sudden drop in productivity would not be looked upon favorably and would hurt the upward influence of the new leader.
Month three is essentially the implementation time. If personnel changes are required, this is the time to do it. As the text says, â€œOne of the fastest ways to change the culture and norms of a team is to change the people in itâ€. The leader should meet with the team and clearly define the direction and goals of the team. Individual meetings may be necessary to explain duties and define roles of team members.
A word of caution from my own experience. The first 90-day outline is a good way to begin, but it takes continual work to keep on the right track. Cultures and the status quo are not easily changed. It takes lots of gradual adjustments to turn the ship.
