Cynicism and Change Initiatives
Why do people in organizations often develop cynicism about change initiatives? Are all managers change agents? Explain. How will you as a security manager deal with change within your organization and your department?
Organizations, Cynicism, and Change
Most organizations are always looking for new ways to build a better relationship with the customers, and the workers. Change is the most effective way to develop new ways to improve and protect business assets. Cynicism is a way of looking at change initiatives in a similar way and rejecting some of the negative influences. When it comes to change in an organization some influences such as wealth or power can shadow an individual and can cloud their judgment. Managers help employees better their performance and meet the business goals set. Anytime a problem arises and change is needed, managers play as mentor and a change agent. Managers have several roles and when there are ways that they can change to help improve a business and the employee performance, it is possible any manager can be a change agent. As a security manager the main thing about change is being able to communicate the changes effectively to others in the organization. As a security manager to deal with change, I would first keep up on all the changes and learn about what the changes can do for the organization. I would want to know both the positive and negative effects a change can have on the business or department. Change is always happening. I believe it is important for me as a manger to find out what changes are occurring and let others in the department and the rest of the organization know about. Change can be very beneficial but if it is not communicated, nothing will change. As a security manager, I need to believe in the change and adopt it into my own cynical way and show others that I am willing to change and can still be happy in the organization. A manager that uses change as positive influences and shows change can be good role models within the organization and the department.
