Felton Hawkins | "Organizational/Leadership Development"
One of the most difficult things to manage for senior executives is organizational change. The environment and context of the organization are always evolving, many times without leaders realizing it. Environmental changes can be so subtle that the impact of the changes are not seen until it is almost too late to respond. Leaders are then placed in a reactive mode, which can increase stress and sometimes panic. The later we anticipate evolving changes in our environments, the harder it is to address and respond to them properly. People, for the most part, resist change. Because change makes people uncomfortable, their first instinct is to resist. When change is activated, conflicts arise. People have become comfortable therefore, they are not willing to take the necessary steps needed for change. Change will often cause splits and cause people to leave the organization, therefore, the senior executive is left to deal with the results. In these cases, the stress level of the senior executive can become dangerous. Depression may soon set in and fatigue may become an issue; it becomes a dangerous, slippery slope. What can you as a pastor do? Get expertise that is not enmeshed in the organization that can look at the organization from a non-biased perspective. We can take a solid look at the vision, reestablish it and make adjustments where needed.

Key Leadership Team
Success in today’s complex global arena is challenging, and the rules are changing. We can be assured of several things: the challenges facing us today will become even more intense, the speed with which change is occurring will increase, and the competition will intensify. To create and lead an organization that will maintain a competitive advantage during these turbulent times, many executives will have to transform an organizational culture that was founded on yesterday’s paradigms and ideas. Priorities will shift and thinking will have to change. Attitudes and behaviors reacting new and different social and organizational values will have to be adapted. For many people, learning to adjust to change will be difficult, and managing change will present even greater challenges.

Many everyday decisions required within this role affect profits, productivity, service levels, as well as attitudes and morale. With a role and function of this magnitude, it would seem logical that the process of becoming a team leader would require years and years of training. However, most team leaders have had little or no training in the required skills. Almost universally, today’s team leaders are men and women who have been promoted from being a super worker to being a team leader.
A Process for Results
The Team Leadership process makes team leadership development not only possible but also eminently profitable. Individually, each team leader reflects the proficiency of a specialized knowledge which creates a powerful force that assures the achievement of organizational goals through its people.
Attitude Development: Attitude is the basis of all individual behavior. The effectiveness of team leaders will depend upon their behavior in a given situation. Improved results and productivity begin by developing the attitudes that govern positive behavior.
Behavior Management Skills: Better than 50% of a team leader’s time is spent managing other people. To be effective in this role, it is important that the individual develops the skills necessary to effectively communicate and maximize productivity.
Goal Accomplishment: A team leader not only sets goals, but also needs to determine how they will be achieved, what obstacles must be overcome in the process, and the timeline necessary. The Team Leadership process provides a proven goal accomplishment model that can be immediately applied to any organization.
