Week 8 and 9 recommended reading on the leadership of Culture, Ethics, and Diversity & strategic leadership and change management. I analyse from the topic that the culture of an organization is the aggregate of values, beliefs, norms, and assumption which is shared by employees among each other. The culture in an organization either created by design or by default. I also understand the strong and weak culture of the organization. The strong culture is the culture in which a complete agreement on key values and norms. In this culture, leaders play a key role.  It is linked with the high performance with the passion of achieving. Weak culture usually linked with low performance. In this culture employee’s resistance to change, unhealthy promotion activities, lack of experience and lack of shared values. I read about the ethics that the leader should develop the ethical environment in the organization. Diversity plays a great role in allowing the companies to recruit the employees from the larger pools, train and retain the superior performers. Diversity helps in solving a creative problem (Kumar, & Steinmann, 2015). 

The most interesting thing that I read about strategic leadership and changes is that the leaders have a dynamic role in developing the strategy of the organization when a company plans to re-engineer its business practices, adopting new technologies, acquiring new skills and capabilities. The company requires changes to create an edge over its competitors in the market place. The changes in the workplace often resistant by employees but I understand after reading that the effective leader moulds the employee behaviour by providing the best strategy and by creating awareness towards changes (Rothaermel, 2016). 

I understand from the reading that the organization culture, ethics, and diversity in the leadership are imperative not only for the organization but for the employees too. The culture of the organization is the set of behaviour that is followed by employees in the performance of the task of an organization. The leaders in the organization had taken a step to evaluate whether the company follows all the rules and regulations. The company is operated ethically. When the leaders are identifying the activities which are not right for the company. Then the leader declared that activity is wrong and it is unethical.  I also learned that leadership is a necessity in framing the strategy of any plan or activity. The modification in the policy of the company provides new avenues for its development and the leaders take action to familiar all employees with these changes by providing its benefits.   

According to my knowledge which I gather from this source, I analyse that the strategic leadership in the organization and the cultures, values, beliefs of the organization both are linked with each other. The company which follows all the norms and regulation then it provides an aid to a leader to develop the strategy of development when business is going to be expanded (Kumar, & Steinmann, 2015).

Assessment 2 Reflective Journal A

Week 6 and 7 recommended reading on the team and organizational leadership. I analyse from the topic that the team is very useful in the organization. They provide the best opportunity for enhancing profits and productivity. The teamwork provides more output than as individuals. The team in an organization determined on the common objective, common mission, sharing insight and information and provide support to the efforts of each other.

In an organization, the team offers collective benefits, provide more opportunities for new ideas, and also provide job satisfaction to the members. Team leaders in an organization have a critical role. He is a role model, chief motivator, coach and mentor, etc

As per my analysis, I acknowledged that in an organizational leadership charisma and transformational leadership play a great role. The theories of charismatic and transformational leadership focus on organizational leadership. The followers’ influence by the charismatic and transformational leaders who then come together to accomplish the common goal of an organization. These leaders impacted the political, cultural, social and economic systems. Transformational leadership is about providing information to the followers that the current system has some problem and due to this change in the condition is necessary. Transformational leadership also provides a clear vision of what a new organization could be (Bunting, 2016).

I understand from the reading that in the team led the team leader plays a complex role. They direct the team towards the accomplishment of the goals of an organization. They provide coaching and training to the members of the team. So they effectively and efficiently perform their work. In an organization, the leader cantered decision making does not work well. The leaders transfer some of the decision making to the team members. This leads to an increase in the effectiveness of a team and it creates a good image of a team leader in the eyes of a team member. As per my perception, the charismatic and transformational leadership provides the way to the leaders to reduce the employee turnover by satisfying its team member. 

I assessed that team leadership is very imperative for the organization to perform the task insufficient and effective manner. The team leader is the one who provides all the means to his team to achieve the organizational goal. He is a mentor or trainer who trained the employees of the company or organization. Team members are working in an organization in a coordinated manner. It is just possible only because of team leader. Organizational leadership based on charismatic and transformational leadership. I learned from this that the charisma of a leader based on his extraordinary qualities and the complex situation he faces in the organization (Woodcock, 2017)

As per my point of view, the organization provides support to leadership development among the employees. This helps in the efficacy of the organization.
