The research paper assignment allows you to demonstrate your mastery of these objectives and apply them to a real-world situation. Here is the scenario for the research paper: At the end of this document is an abstract of an article accessed from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) web site (www.ccl.org) about the top leadership challenges facing organizations today. Imagine the following scenario. You have just finished your first month at Omega Partners, a leading global consulting firm, after graduating with your BAS from Broward College. Your boss has been impressed with the work that you have been doing and decides to give you an assignment that just came in. Omega wants to build on the research conducted by CCL and your boss asks you to pick one of the challenges listed in the article and then expanded upon in the section highlighted in yellow. Your boss specifically asks you to ignore the 4 concrete things that can be done that are also listed in the article. Instead, she has heard about this great course that you took at Broward College on leadership and organizations and she wants you to apply the objectives that you learned in that course to the challenge that you select to write about. Given what you learned in the course – how would you recommend that any of Omega’s customers address the challenge you select? 1. Honing Effectiveness: the challenge of developing the relevant skills — such as time-management, prioritization, strategic thinking, decision-making, and getting up to speed with the job — to be more effective at work.
2. Inspiring Others: the challenge of inspiring or motivating others to ensure they’re satisfied with their jobs and working smarter.
3. Developing Employees: the challenge of developing others, including mentoring and coaching.
4. Leading a Team: the challenge of team building, team development, and team management. Specific leadership challenges include how to instill pride, how to provide support, how to lead a big team, and what to do when taking over a new team.
5. Guiding Change: the challenge of managing, mobilizing, understanding, and leading change. Guiding change includes knowing how to mitigate consequences, overcome resistance to change, and deal with employees’ reactions to change.
6. Managing Stakeholders: the challenge of managing relationships, politics, and image. These leadership challenges include gaining managerial support, managing up, and getting buy-in from other departments, groups, or individuals.
Knowing that these leadership challenges are common experiences for middle and senior managers is helpful, both to the leaders and to those charged with their development, according to our researchers.
