Leading a large organisation will not only be instrumental in advancing my career development, but will be vital in helping the organisation to achieve its long term and short term goals and objectives. In this case, I intend to lead a clothing organisation to achieve its long-term objectives without undervaluing the existing organisational cultures and practices. Initially, the organisation had an effective reputation and its productivity was admirable. However, with increased global challenges including financial and economic crises, the organisation has started trailing behind its competitors in its production and marketing. The purpose of leading this organisation is to assist it recovers its lost reputation. Moreover, I also aim at increasing the organisation status in order to advance its profitability and efficiency. As a professional Business Administrator who have specialised in marketing, I will use my expertise in searching for the market of the organisation’s product. I will also use my competence in instituting modern and most reliable promotion and marketing strategies to advance the organisation’s image.

After observing the audience, I was confident that the gathering was willing and ready to listen to my vision regarding the success of the organisation. In essence, the crowd was positive and enthusiastic to listen to my inaugural speech. Accordingly, I was existed by the audiences’ response when I was preparing to present my long awaited speech. Moreover, the manner in which the crowd welcomed me made me feel confused and nervous.
In order to make sure that the crowd grabbed the content of my speech, I had to commence my speech by telling them my short-term plan for the organisation and what intended to do for them. In my speech, I ensured that the crowd understood my vision of turning the organisation into a global giant that would be able to compete with other organisation in global market. I also aimed at understanding stakeholders thoughts about the future of the organisation. I realised that the organisation stakeholders’ future aim was to ensure that the organisation regained its lost reputation and increase its profitability in order to fit in modern competitive global market.

Moreover, the participants in the inaugural speech expected the adoption of initiatives and policies that will facilitate appropriate and effective means of transforming the organisation.

During my inaugural speech, I informed the crowd on my priorities and work plan. The aim of informing the population on my vision and priorities was to access their reactions towards my priorities. In addition, I intended to understand their views towards my priorities. Support from all stakeholders was essential to achieve my objectives and vision. As a new leader in the organisation, my first priority was to identify and understand the factors that resulted to the downfall of the organisation. I therefore proposed to institute a task force that will have the responsibility of searching for the cause of the problem. My second priority was to inform all stakeholders on the identified factors that undermined operations and activities in the organisation. The knowledge on the identified challenges would be critical in facilitating interaction and teamwork in the organisation. Furthermore, I intended to organise another stakeholders meeting to formulate a work plan for solving the identified challenges and complications.

After formulating the work plan to rectify the identified challenges, I would the set the timeframe of executing the proposed work plan. The evaluation of the implementation was is also essential in examining the success of the plan.

The first course of action as a leader in the organisation was to ensure that the organisation stakeholders understand the areas that required immediate and radical transformation. After identifying the organisation weakness and strengths, the second step was to institute a realistic framework that will address the identified challenges and promote the organisation strengths. Moreover, I planned to involve employees, leaders, and other stakeholders in the implementation of the formulated framework. The final step was to monitor and evaluate the implementation process. The aim of this course of action was to ensure that every professional and individual is adequately involved in running and in the management of the organisation. I also intend at creating a working environment that will enhance employees’ personal and professional development.
Subsequent to the expiry of my time as a leader in this organisation, I would like to leave various landmarks in the institution.

After my time as a leader in the organisation is complete, I would also like to be a leader who provided an environment that facilitated employees’ professional and personal development. Moreover, I would also like to be recognised as the only young leaders who significantly advanced the profitability and productivity of the organisation under study.

In an effort of ensuring that everyone understands my vision in the organisation, I will ensure that the gathering is completely engaged in the speech. I would give the participant in the room an opportunity to ask any question regarding my vision and operation plan. The necessary rectification will also be enhanced in order to incorporate stakeholders’ opinions and ideas.
