1.0 Introduction An organization is solely dependent on leadership abilities of its leaders and how they implement their transformational and relationship skills. They can revitalize the company and bring extraordinary changes by following the principles of transformational changes such as inspiring others, setting motivational examples and taking wise decisions at critical moments.

Kenneth McLaurin MNGT 5590 Integrative Paper INTRODUCTION The book The Heart of Change shows the practical side of the theories that are taught in the course textbook. It presents stories of successes and failures based in the application of concepts discussed in Organizational Behavior and Management and in class.

The author of this paper will explore the scope of service for all OR’s and determine staffing models necessary for safety of patients and employees alike. Many individuals see the OR as highly expensive area within the hospital due to equipment needs, instruments, supplies, suture, dressings, and everything in between; but, what does a typical day cost the hospital to staff and maintain the OR? How do long hours affect workplace and patient safety? The author will provide knowledge of staffing costs for an OR. Nursing in the OR takes a village of healthcare professionals working to achieve team work, effective communication, and collaboration, requiring diligent delegation for successful delivery of care for each patient. The OR is a fast paced area to work and patient safety is the most important skill to possess.

Introduction As defined by Katzenbach (1995), change leadership is “the process whereby individuals who lead initiatives that influence dozens to hundreds of others to perform differently—and better—by applying multiple leadership and change approaches.” Leadership alone is defined as setting a direction and developing the strategies necessary to move in that direction – that is, creating and achieving a vision – leadership is thus a process to do with change (Kotter 1999). Change leadership is critically important to the continuing success of organizations everywhere. Tennant Company understands and invests in change leadership by employing a Sr. Organization Development Manager named Annelise Larson, M.B.A. whose efforts includes setting direction, developing strategies, and leading initiatives through organizational change efforts.

In order to move forward and keep ahead, I believe an organization need change leaders who have capabilities to have their workforce go from change avoidance to change acceptance. “One of the most significant strengths of an effective leader is the ability to create a positive work climate where people are energized to do their best work, free of unnecessary distractions” (Cronkite, n.d.). During this part of the change process I feel the change leader would have better success if he would be tactful and harness the skills of others by working in a collaborative rather than hierarchical way. Leadership in an organization involves instilling motivation and enthusiasm in the employees. An effective leader knows how to manage and tackle difficult situations and people. Many reasons can cause a force of change in organizations but I feel it’s up to change leaders to manage these planned and unexpected changes. (Word count: 548)
