Devotional for an Organization
An organization consists of many people with different views, there are those who like change and those who oppose it immediately they hear of it. Change in an organization is often brought to improve the productivity of the members. The way you react towards change will affect you positively or negatively. Those who oppose it will be affected negatively while those who embrace it will surely benefit from it. In this paper, we will focus on how to help those who view change as something bad.
There are many reasons that make one oppose a change in an organization (Rosabeth , 2012). To help such people the leaders ought to be vigilant and Gog fearing. “The fear of the lord-that is wisdom” is a verse that should direct leaders where they can find help. They need to comply with heaven standards so that they can be granted with the right wisdom to deal with their subjects. With wisdom, they make the right decisions at the right time.
As leaders, we need to have a good relationship with our subjects. Having in mind that change often comes from the top, the relationship between the leader and his followers matters a lot when it comes to the stage of implementation of change (Rosabeth , 2012). Where are issues between the two the subject might choose to frustrate the leader by working against the change? But if they are living harmoniously, the leader can freely face the subjects and explain to them in detail of what they are required of them, and wherever they have an issue it is solved immediately before they embark to work.
On the employees’ side, they need to trust their leaders and above all God. Lack of trust may cause insecurity. The employees fear to lose their jobs when the employer tries to bring in change. To create this trust starts by trusting in God. After they believe in the words of the maker, they can comfortably believe their leaders when they tell them that their jobs are secure, and the change is there for the good of everyone.
