ssignment 1: The Leader’s Role in Effecting Change
The leader plays a large role in shaping an organization’s culture. In this discussion, you will choose a Fortune 500 company with a well-known leader and research a current major change the company is embracing. Your role will be as an industrial/organizational (I/O) professional helping this company, team, and individual leaders embrace the change. You will need to understand the company’s culture by using Heckleman’s BEAR Model. Your discussion will be in the form of a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.
Be sure your presentation addresses these specific questions:
- What is the name of the company you chose? What are the leaders’ names?
- What is the current change the company is adapting to?
- What is the company’s current culture?
- What are the challenges you think the company will have making said changes?
- Using the BEAR Model, what recommendations do you have to change the company’s beliefs, experiences, actions, and results?
Attach your response as a 4- to 6-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation in the Discussion Area.
The slides need not be in APA style, but the notes should be grammatically correct. All citations should be in APA format on both the slides and the notes pages. A reference page, in APA format, should be included as a slide.
