Implementing a Leadership Change
In this paper I will describe a change strategy that effectively pairs with my selected leadership structure and styles with the Learning Team’s B end vision for Gene One.
Leadership adjustments in any organization may cause an organization to experience greater changes and fluctuations. A new leadership may start at an organization with a new plan about how the organization should operate. This may create a resistance among employees who may think about their job security and position. According to Robbins and Judge (2007), one of the best documented discoveries from studies of individual and organizational behavior is that organizations and his or her members resist change. At times leadership may not take into consideration the importance of communication when change is in plans of the organization. Usually, leadership will quickly announce the change internally and externally without thinking of the effect to the organization.
Gene One is an organization that has an immense future and growth. The leadership of the organization understands that the company should start an Initial Public Offering (IPO), which would require several changes within the organization. Gene One’s leadership has various points-of-views on what should take place. For some, the change is at the right time, and for others going public would jeopardize the company because the organization is not ready for the change at this moment. With today’s business environment with globalization an organization must make the necessary steps to ensure the future of the company. According to Robbins and Judge (2007), a global economy means that competitors are as likely to come from across the ocean as from across town.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Don Ruiz, understands that the organization has no experience with an IPO
