Excerpt from Seminar Paper :
These are the systems in which people are eager to utilize all of their capabilities for their jobs and carry out their task effectively. (Lancioni, 2002) These Workshop engage all the participants rapidly in the simulations. Throughout these simulations participants agree upon the fact that everyone -- every individual -- at different times, experience being on the Top, or sometimes in the Middle, sometimes in the Bottom, we are sometimes Customer and sometimes Supplier -- and our position changes a lot of times even in one day. The Organizational Workshops are highly effective in increasing knowledge and giving insight of systemic conditions that are present in an organization and how everyone react individually towards such conditions. They provide an opportunity to learn latest leadership and other related strategies to handle these systemic conditions as soon they take place. These workshops teach how to improve team collaboration, job performance every day operations, internal/external dealings and increase productivity by as much as 30%.
The Life Cycle of Organizations
The Leadership Lifecycle is highly valuable for the progress of professional career and enhancing one's leadership qualities for success of organization. Every organization go through different lifestages, and each one of these requires a different leadership quality in order to make organization survive and then suucceed. The Leadership Lifecycle provides an outline that enables its leaders to get knowledge about its lifestages and identify the most suitable leadership role for the organization. (Heath, 2010) As organizations progress from one lifestage to the other, mostly the leader finds its difficult to shift his role in order to fulfil requirements of the new lifestage. This brings decline or malfunction as the groundworks of past success are no longer enough for the current lifestange and usually upshots in a search for fresh leadership. By familiarizing myself with lifecycle of my organization I will take my organization to the peak of success.
Self-deception is a process of rejecting or balancing away the application, significance, or value of conflicting evidence and rational argument. Self-deception involves believing in a reality (or lack of reality) so that one does not get any self-awareness of the deception. It is deception when someone forgets that they are a part of the trouble too that they are trying to solve. The main problem is the belief that we are either innocent or powerless. This self deception leads us to instinctively become responsible for the scenario that we want to change. The main problem lies in the fact that we tend to blame others for these problems. However, what is needed to become an effective leader is to think out of the box. (The Arbinger Institute, 2010) In order to do that, true leaders always remain curious, they analyze others positions, remain open for others feedback. They look for a valid point-of-view rather than believing in stories. Hence, I by avoiding self deception, I will prove my leadership to be the best for the organization.
In order to succeed every team needs to possess certain qualities like, ability to create and improve ideas, arrange & integrate given tasks, uphold internal relations, work within professional limitations and utilize every team members' specialized skills. (Collins, 2001) By adopting and applying these tools I can prove my self as an effective leader who possesses the ability to achieve every milestone set by the organization.
