Katzenbach (1995) wrote that “Real change leaders are the linchpins connecting three critical forces for organizational change and performance: top leadership aspirations (what are we trying to become?); workforce energy and productivity (how will we climb the mountain?); and the marketplace reality (what do our target customers truly seek, and what can and will our potential competitors really do?) (pp. 8-9).
Analyze the changes in your field(INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY) to determine if there have been periods of time in which leaders in the field, as well as actual practitioners in the field, have had to address the issue of change management. Specifically, this analysis should be based on a synthesis of the current literature (and literature no older than 1995) to demonstrate how leaders in your field of study have addressed the issue of change management – as well as any changes in management style. Finally, the student should relate these specific changes to their own current, previous, and/or future career paths(BUSINESS MANAGEMENT, OWNER OF SPORT TEAM). This analysis should help to reveal how you have seen changes occur over the past decade or so in your field. Finally, what possible changes, suggestions and/or recommendations would you consider to be necessary in your field of study?
out most benefits and requirements of a sport, should it not be allowed to be considered a sport? There has been an ongoing debate on the negative effects of those who suffer injuries from cheerleading. Cheerleading injuries are becoming more and more common, and it is largely due to the fact that cheerleaders have to raise the stakes in order to beat out the competition. 96% of concussions are stunt related and 60% of total injuries are also stunting related Overall, cheerleading also accounts for 65% of all female sports injuries. However, adding cheerleading to the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA’s) list of recognized sports could improve cheerleaders’ safety. It would maintain up-to-standard regulation for coaches and cheerleading squads, and bring more attention to these concerning injury statistics. Bearing in mind, the technicalities and skills required for sports, injuries are prone to occur. Another repetitive issue within cheerleading that has discouraged participants has been bullying. This creates major trust issues, not just within friendships in the team but while actually performing routines as well, as they may not trust their bases to catch them because they may intend on trying to hurt their flyer. The intimidation and/or harassment can have severe mental and occasionally even physical repercussions. Bullying is not the only concern for most parents and students who want to participate though. Cheerleading like a lot of other sport extorts a lot of expenses from routine equipment to costumes. According to a national average being part of a high school cheer team, it would cost anywhere between $915.00- $1,115.00. For a lot of students, financially keeping up with the constant upgrades and changes can get difficult. Cheerleading is an underlying activity that requires a lot more skills and abilities than most sports. Most football games are known to last over an hour and a half long, where cheerleaders are known to be active throughout (including half-times). The requirements of athleticism, strength, flexibility and coordination, promote muscle flexibility. This essentially, improving healthy muscle development which improves the heart rate, therefore decreases aches and pains and the more flexible a person is, the less the likelihood for injury for the individual. While routines are generally a few minutes long, the stamina and endurance required to consistently rehearse while doing stunts, dances and tumbles becomes an effective cardio exercise and depicts an advanced level of physical competency which requires an overall stronger cardiovascular health. Cheerleading reduces the risks of strokes and health while the lower blood pressure improves stamina. College-level training also adds strength training as an added component of practice. However, competing and practising regularly while supporting a large based social group usually deters students and parents towards the activity, as it would be too time-consuming and distracting from their education. However, According to NCA statistics “82% of cheerleaders maintain a grade point average of that equivalent to a B or higher.” Consistently obtaining good grades while being involved with several in school activities has actually seen to be beneficial, as participation offers them and opens them up to many exciting>GET ANSWER
