Am I An "Animateur"? Read the article Anatomy of Inspiration by Senge, Smith, Kruswitz, Laur, & Schley(2008). In this article, the authors discuss what it means to be an “animateur” andhow leadership is strongly associated with inspiration. Reflect on and discuss yourown experiences in demonstrating your ability to be an animateur. Discuss thefuture efforts you could make in leading change in this role. Further, discuss howyou will sustain change in your organization through inspiration and collaboration.One of the hardest things to do is to “bring to life a new way of thinking” (Senge,Smith, Kruswitz, Laur, & Schley, 2008, p. 54). An animateur knows how to engagetheir stakeholders by listening, communicating, and getting to know them. Whenyou know what your stakeholders value, and understand what they deem is successyou then began to inspires them to grab a hold of that success. As an assistantmanager it is my job to make sure the employees are trained in the areas they areassigned. In order to do this I have to let go of any negative thought about myemployees. In addition, it is important that they have everything they need to dotheir job. I cannot tell you how many times the morale drops when the employees’do not have everything they need to do their job. Engaging the associates meangetting to know them and what excites them. Every day I go around and talk to theassociates and I know pretty much everything about them that matters. Askingthem how they are doing and helping them with problems if I can. One of theproblems that many of the managers have failed to understand that even thoughthe associates are trained in stocking and knowing the areas they work in theyshould be trained and retrained. When you perform well in the area you work in youbecome even more productive. For the most part the associates only get computer-based training (CBL) to aid in their training. At the same time associates need realtime training in order to be a better problem solver and develop conflict skills whichwill help them work better with each other and with customers.Communities of Continuous Inquiry and Improvement
