tasks are to distribute the work, control the processes, take the responsibility for the outcomes. Their main goal is to achieve all organizational objectives effectively. Leaders are people who have naturally respect and skills to control and influence others to provide better performance within the organization. In comparison with managers, leaders are usually born as leaders, not taught to do their job. Leaders should be original, innovative,

inspire, trust, motivate and set the right example for others. By setting the example and motivating the employees, leaders encourage employees to do their work more effective. Leaders often help employees on their way of achieving goals, share their knowledge or experience to support others’ decisions and help them to create self-esteem. From my personal experience, manager could be compared to boss - if there is any ongoing problem, employees often try to avoid managers and solve it somehow without him, while leader is a part of the team, usually more friendly person, who is always welcome to help you. However, I think that nowadays, the companies understand the importance of leaders and seek for leaders rather than managers. 4. You plan to introduce a new reward system and you expect significant resistance to this change throughout the entire organization. What do you need to do to successfully carry the change out? First of all, it is important to set different types of rewards to motivate employees to improve their performance. Usually, employees want to be financially rewarded, however, this type of reward works as a motivator for short period of time. It is also important to create social and psychic types of rewards. The rewards needs to attract employees, motivate them to develop new skills, satisfy their needs and help the company to retain the best employees. Employees should be rewarded based on their behavior, performance, outcomes and other special events or situations that they handle well. The reward system needs to fit in employees’ needs, therefore the crucial factor is open and honest communication with the employees. It is crucial to set specific goals and desires and give the rewards immediately after they reach the milestone. It is inefficient to wait until there is some team building, party or the end of the year. If you give the employees more choices of their reward, they will appreciate it and choose the one they really want or need. The reward system should change over time, to keep still attractive rewards for all employees. Another way, to make the reward system successful is to let set the rewards by the employees themselves. In other words, team buildings or meetings can end with little brainstorming about the rewards and the most voted rewards will be set for the future goals. If all aspects of the change are well- communicated, the resistance to change will disappear. To successfully carry out the change, the reward systems must be demonstrated. I will recommend to give every employee on the beginning some type of reward that he or she will appreciate, so the employees will feel special.

    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.
