The organizational change that needs to be done in my organization is team building, leadership style, and to achieve that goal is by using Kotter’s 8 step change model within my organization. In team building I will put Tuckman’s five stage theory of group development in place in my organization. In the first stage is “forming” in which it’s the “ice breaking” stage, group members tend to be uncertain and anxious about such things as their role, the people in charge, and the group’s goals (Kinicki & Kreitner, 2009). Being a leader we need to play a dominant role at this stage in which this stage is fairly short and may only last for a single meeting. The reason that this stage is short and last a single meeting is because this stage is when people are introduce to one another in which this can lead to discussions about how the team will work. The second stage is “storming” in which it is the time of testing so therefore individuals test their leader’s policies and assumption as they try to determine how they fit into the power structure (Kinicki & Kreitner, 2009). As a leader you must be aware that some members may feel overwhelmed by how much there is to do in which this stage is when many teams fail and those that stick with the task may feel that they are on a roller coaster and try to focus on the job in hand without the support of a established processes. The third stage is “norming” in which it is the groups that make it through stage 2 generally do so because a respected member, other than a leader, challenges the group to resolve its power struggles so something can be accomplished (Kinicki & Kreitner, 2009). Now that the team know each other better in which they are able to socialized together and able to ask each other for help and provide a constructive criticism in which the team develops a strong commitment to the team goal and start to push forward
