In this module, you learned about value-based leadership and developing a leadership mind-set, as well as looked at some of the common mistakes associated with change leadership. The assignments in this module ask you to explore the role of the change facilitator or change leader.
Research value-based leadership and the role of change leaders. Use resources from professional literature in your research. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
Based on your research and experience, in a minimum of 400 words, write a description that illustrates your vision of the change facilitator’s role. In other words, if you were appointed the role of a change leader (either at work or in a community organization), how do you envision your role as a change facilitator in bringing about healthy change? While responding, consider the following questions:
- How would you generate a sense of urgency about the need for healthy change?
- How would you manage and respond to the various reactions of employees (followers) to the change process?
- What activities would you perform or enact to genuinely empower people by creating circumstances that promote and sustain change?
