1) It is apparent from the lack of receiving critical information that frontline construction workers / managers are either not aware of (or buy into) the aggressive timeframe for completing the towers. They also appear to lack a clear method to communicate issues beyond the weekly status meetings. While some of the strongest positive feedback received for Erik has been the organization of these meetings, there appears to be a disconnect in how they are perceived: Construction attendees apparently believe this is where all status, including emergencies, are communicated; Erik and Curt appear to expect it as a routine checkpoint with no surprises. 2) Erik's manager, Jeff Hardy, has not done well at clarifying the General Manager's role, or in helping Erik establishing boundaries for the position. No one has put the brakes on Erik's actions, implying agreement.
If you don't have any values or respect then the people at the work place won't respect you at all causing you or any person to feel uncomfortable and work won't get done because there is no confidence. My values, beliefs system and experiences could have an impact on the work I am doing with residents if I do not Have an awareness of my own values etc. This may be because we find it difficult to accept other people values and beliefs, we might feel that are the right ones and paths they have chosen are the ways to successful rehabilitation. 5. Explain how people may react and respond to receiving constructive feedback (2.2.1) Constructive feedback is feedback that is helpful.
Micromanagement like this puts employees in a threatened state and unable to perform their best. Additionally, while the reward system may have appeared functional, it ultimately was very poorly designed. Employees felt incentivized to simply “impress” their superiors, which did not necessarily correlate with actual performance. Further, the assessment cloaked evaluations as a part of career development counseling, creating a conflict of interest for the auditor collecting performance information from the employees. Finally, the evaluation system failed to require managers to provide feedback to their reports, inhibiting an environment of learning or growth.
Hampton's first reaction was that the letter was some sort of joke. If this was a bona fide request, it would put him and LMCMC in an uncomfortable position. LMCMC generally did not spend large amounts on any type of promotional activity, and certainly not on individual customers. Undoubtedly, the people at Genesco knew the limited nature of LMCMC's promotional budget. Still, Hampton resolved to consider the letter carefully, since Genesco was an important customer whose request had to be taken seriously LMCMC management considered the concept of partnership with customers to be very important.
There is an emphasis on factual and numerical reporting on which we make decisions about how our company will be run. This is a seriously flawed method of management in that there is a complete lack of thought to the psychological impact of their decisions and management of the organization. The lack of empathy is palatable in the room during these meetings. My failure to elicit empathy for others and myself in the group creates a huge challenge for me. In order to more effectively contribute to the organization, I would like to spend some time researching techniques to connect on an emotional level with the team.
For example; operations such as drug raids are planned democratically beforehand, but when the plan is put into practice or action the leader will be authoritarian as there is no time for discussion. Authoritarian leaders maintain order and discipline, making this style effective. The style also makes decision making and arrangement quick and efficient, and helps large scale co-ordination. The down side to using this leadership type is that the team don’t develop initiative and less responsibility for their actions as they rely on the leader. There is usually a low staff morale, meaning poor performance and high staff turnover.
It’s difficult enough to get them to do tasks alone, and teaming them up with a group of people usually has a negative outcome. Additionally, they’re typical loners who tend to stay to themselves and are isolated from the world in one way or another. Moreover, they have very bad attitudes towards everyone and never want to participate in company functions, or could care less about completing a task or an assignment they’re working on. Furthermore, the lack of interest affects not only them, but their counterparts as well; whatever they don’t accomplish has to be done by their colleagues. Finally, the uninterested fellow workers appearance is not important to them, possibly resulting in low self-esteem, helping explain the way they
These individuals are proficient in their old methods and felt that there is no need to change. Additionally, they did not have the required KSAs to learn the new system and the learning environment did not permit learning to occur resulting in resistance. In this case, peer support was the major cause of this resistance. The case mentions that the managers excluded Rick from informal discussion groups; this indicates that he was not accepted by most people. According to Blanchard & Thacker (2007), the effect of group dynamics can influence individual group members’ behavior and motivation.
Barriteaun didn’t care who he hurt with his racial comments and pictures and definitely didn’t care about his ethical commitment to protect his community from people like him. What is more amazing is that when the report came out about who was behind this hatred Facebook page, Barriteaun was put on paid administrative leave and not terminated as this was a huge surprise to everyone. The Boston police department could have made a very good example of Jason Barriteaun’s case, they proved that they would not tolerate support or standby a police officer that turns his back on his ethical commitment to his
How do actions of Thomas Green differ from the expectations of Frank Davis? As a result of the actions of Thomas Green, he did not receive an exceptional feedback when his performance was reviewed by this boss Frank Davis. By not updating his Calendar on Outlook, Davis was not able to get in contact with Thomas, which upset his boss. As Davis expects to be informed of the tasks and its progress which are assigned to his specialists and Green not meeting this expectation gave Davis a negative vibe. Along with that Green did not
