Personal Leadership Philosophy for Effecting Change
Premised on what Dr. Alex Rajis has learned as a business executive, the purpose of the presentation is to define organizational leadership, including the dual-focused management approach that works towards what is best for individuals and what is best for a group as a whole. He will also discuss the following:
- Attitude and a work ethic that empowers an individual in any role to lead from the top, middle, or bottom of an organization;
- Ability to manage change, which often occurs in an organization; and
- Reasons change is necessary to bring resolution to a situation that must be mitigated.
Change management has at least three characteristics:
- Adapting to change;
- Controlling change; and
- Effecting change.
This presentation in a nutshell is about effecting change. A pre-emptive approach to dealing with change is at the core of all three characteristics. In other words, change management, for an organization, means outlining and implementing procedures and technologies to address changes in the business setting and to gain from changing opportunities.
