  • In some organizations, chronically resistant employees occur, who will consistently resist any change initiatives. These employees are afraid of change, attacking all things that are outside their comfort.

    Toxic employees use social hacking to manipulate others using rumors, silent treatment and intimidation. These employees need the environment not to change so they can hold onto their informal power.

    If no other employees on the team behave in this manner, then it is clear the employee does not fit well with the organization. If they are a valuable worker, the organization may attempt to find them work in a different area of the organization that could perhaps fit the personalities of the employee, creating a beneficial scenario as the employee is removed from their current toxic role and can still add value to the organization. All employees have unique personalities, values and needs and may benefit in different job roles.

  • The Neutral Zone is the middle phase of the transition process and the realm between where the change started and where it is supposed to become. There are several measures that need to be taken in advance to prevent any potential unpleasant or inconvenient things from occurring. Transparency is vital to the change effort, helping to establish a trusting environment.

    The change agent will need to do a proper analysis of all stakeholders and develop a communications plan. A communications plan allows the change agent to determine the needs of their target audience when communicating any information about the project. It allows them to determine the frequency of communications at the level of detail needed. Details may need to be shared with stakeholders that are deemed essential for their duties while other information may be withheld and provided at a time that they are considered necessary.

    Certain change initiatives do require some secrecy. Reasons for secrecy from lower levels of the organization may include a major change to the organization and its culture, perhaps a merger in process with the initial stages needing to be implemented before lower level needs to be informed. Perhaps upper management needs to ensure that details of a change are not leaked to consumers before the change is fully implemented as the organization does not want competitors to receive the news.

  • The Vroom-Jago is a situational leadership model utilized by leaders to decide if they should settle on a choice alone or include a gathering, and to what degree the group ought to be included.

    The Vroom Yetton Jago Decision Model picks the correct style by having the client answer a progression of inquiries with an either yes or no with the questions presented as a decision matrix. In the wake of the answers given to the questions, the client quickly observes what strategy best suits the situation at hand.

    As indicated by the model, three specific components have a direct impact on the strategy for essential leadership: quality, joint effort and time. Hence the sequence of the questions asked makes clearness in regards to the decision situation factors at this moment enabling the leader to make a proper decision. The Vroom-Jago was first created by Vroom and Yetton in 1973. In 1988, it was updated by Vroom and Jago.

    Using the Vroom-Jago decision model, at the point when a decision is to be made, the administration style and the level of support of colleagues are impacted by three essential components.

    If we consider these three factors, better insight can be formed about the decision to be made. The factors include:

  • Values-based leaders are our natural motivators. Although, it is natural for leaders to refer to their values in creating a vision or making decisions. However, it makes absolute sense for leaders to connect with their followers’ values which makes them more likely to act.

    Value-Based Leadership is defined by Richard Barret as “a way of making authentic decisions that build the trust and commitment of employees and customers.” So, by definition, values-driven leaders will dependably act from their most astounding qualities.

    Values-based leaders know their values and what they believe in and hold them firmly; they also earn respect and admiration from their followers through the firm adherence of their values which are shown through their actions.

    Values-based leaders take responsibility for their mistakes and do not try to cover them up. They show their followers that they are responsible individuals and can gain much more respect than blaming someone or something else.

    Moreover, essential traits of great leadership which are personal beliefs and organizational values must be combined, to achieve the corporate mission better. As it is widely known that in every organization, the organization’s values and its people’s belief, form the bedrock of the company’s decisions.

    Leaders may change their strategy, tactics, or approach to better handle a given situation, but they must never turn their underlying values, and principles.

  • Retail is advancing at the pace of technological evolution and is now looking towards a growing trend. Discover here how Artificial Intelligence is helping retailers.

    When the e-commerce took off in the way it did, all those responsible for the retail predicted the end of physical purchases as we knew them. The novelty and glamor associated with physical purchases were replaced by the endless conveniences and corridors that retail e-commerce brought.

    From these important changes in the sector, the laggards are learning very quickly. In fact, if you see the employees of a modern store, you will start to see more analysts, data scientists and digital innovation roles, unlike the old shop assistant/associate scheme.

    This is truly the period in which the owners of physical stores must take measures, and for that they are going thoroughly, adopting modern technologies to counterattack their new e-commerce rivals. This is where Artificial Intelligence plays a fundamental role in the work of retailers. The reasons are as follows:
