Running Head: Approaches to Organizational Change: Scoping an intentional change process Approaches to Organizational Change: Scoping an intentional change process Student’s Name Professor’s Name Institution The organizational change process is always faced with many hiccups and is a headache to many institutional leaders. There is need to focus on working on a reliable approach that will help one gear towards accomplishment of the set goals. This means it is helpful to create a well personalized change plan.

Leaders become relevant as they help in handling the resistance, possible confusions, exploration and ensuring commitment of management. There are some expected behaviors attributed to change stages and it is the work of effective leaders to perceive the given changes and respond appropriately. Every potential change leader needs a close association with planned changes and constructively deals with human emotions (Fleming and Senior, 2006) Transformations require a great degree of leadership who are willing to take responsibility.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
