I have a better understanding of all the topics we went over during the 8 weeks. The fun part I had with each section is placing people with the different ways. For example, when we learned about leading, rewarding, communications, etc. it was fun to match up the different managers/leaders within my organization to the different styles there were to doing things. It helped a lot to put definitions into application.
I would love to advocate change within my organization; in fact I have tried before along with multiple other good leaders. However, the issue comes with chain of command, and those at the highest shut the lower levels down. I can only change things that are within my spectrum, it may be a little, but a little is better than none. So I plan on doing the best to my abilities, and once I get to a level I am allowed to create change for a whole organization, then I plan to do so.
Not to “toot my own horn” per say, but I feel I have always been good with problems and challenges. The key here for me was to read about all the different styles to come to a conclusion for issues. While I may not understand why one person wants to solve or act a certain way, I have to just realize to adapt and overcome.
I wouldn’t say I would approach organizational problems or managers differently but rather accept them more and go in more open minded....
