Assignment: Evaluate the Role of Symbols in Organizational Functioning
All organizations emulate various forms of symbols and symbolic behavior. To address substantive improvement, an effective leader must develop a solid understanding regarding the existing forms of symbols and symbolic behavior that stem from and within the organization.
Using the assigned readings for the course and additional applicable scholarly sources, describe, in sufficient detail, supportive reference that cite how you, as an educational leader, would utilize symbols and symbolic behavior with employees to strengthen the functioning of an educational setting of interest (e.g., school or school district).
As much as possible, integrate the use of logos, phrases, metaphors, myths, values, mission, pictures, objects, storytelling, rituals, ceremonies, humor, play, identification of organizational heroes, theatrical performances or others of familiarity within your descriptive essay. Then create and present your own personal symbol or logo and explain the significance.
Length: 3-5 pages, not including title and reference pages
