Answer
1. An MNC in India adopted and changed norms of regulations towards their existing workforce - Does this mean organizational change? Explain.
Ans. Change in the norms and regulations which effects the employees directly or indirectly do not correspond to the organizational change. The organizational change is the part of the change in the hierarchy in the management or change in the structure of the employees. The organizational change also refers to different verticals on which the organizations are structured.

2. Can managers control colleagues and employees emotions and moods? Examine. “You can’t divorce emotions from the workplace because you can’t divorce emotions from people”. Analyse this statement with justification.
Ans. Yes, the managers can influence the emotions and moods of the employees with respect to the work given to them. More an employee works in any project, more he/she gets emotionally attached to the processes involved in the project. In due course, employee understands the processes and wants to handle the situations the way s/he wants and if the situation is not in his/her control, the emotions swing. This certainly can be controlled by better management and leadership of the managers and the team-leads.

3. Among the different types of leadership styles, which style would be suitable to democratic country like India to become superpower in business? Justify your answer.  
Ans. The different types of leadership styles are as below:
a. Innovator: Brings new ideas on the bench and out of the box thinking is required
b. Developer: Acting on the solutions and learning on the go.
c. Activator: Moving forward to achieve the goals and overcoming the obstacles to complete the work
d. Maximizer: Embrace the good of the past and make new changes, working with different groups
e. Stabilizer: Keeping things running smoothly and make the systems to deliver high standards.
In a democratic country like India you need to work with different people with different groups and different ideas. Thus a quality of flexibility and diplomatically handling the situations should be in-built in you. And this comes when you keep the good of the past and maintain the same credibility and bring new changes with the new people. Thus "maximizer" is the leadership style which should be followed to work with different groups and get the things done.

4. “Money cannot motivate all people under all circumstances.” Critically evaluate this statement with suitable examples and justifications.
Ans. If you get good profile under big brand and you need to compromise with your salary against the normal profile, not so known brand and high salary, what would you prefer? I think this will help you in finding the answer.
