Motivation Plan Deborah S. Glispie LDR/531 6/09/2014 Brandon Johnson Motivation Plan Motivation is a key factor necessary to maximize team productivity and efficiency. The success of a motivated team is dependent on how well individual team members are motivated and the blending of their personalities. The application of each team members DISC assessment provides management with reliable data that is necessary for creating, developing, and motivating a team. The DISC assessment evaluation of each member of Team B provides a structured platform to develop a motivational plan that will meet the demands necessary to manage different personality styles in the work environment. The motivation plan is specifically designed for the Employment Verification Division (EVD).
In the mini-lecture by Dr. Sue he states, “MCT can be defined as both a helping role and process that uses modalities and defines goals, consistent with the life experiences and cultural values of clients.” He also states that MCT involves broadening the role that counselors plays and therefore need to play multiple roles that involve not only the traditional role but systems intervention as well. It is important to avoid a blind application of techniques to all situations and all populations. Another important role is building a therapeutic alliance using empathy, positive regard, respect, warmth and genuineness, self-disclosure, management of counter transference and agreement on goals between the counselor and client (Sue & Sue, 2013) What is the significance of a client's social and cultural context within MCT? Multicultural therapy balances the individualism approach with the collective approach and acknowledges families, significant others, communities and cultures (Sue & Sue, 2013). In MCT the client’s social and cultural background is of importance.
Instead, the system as a whole determines in an important way how the parts behave. It varies from physical, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental & linguistic. Combining these two words, holistic communication is now formed. Quality interactions in communication depend a lot on how well one person understands the others needs. This element will ensure communication to be effective because the need can be met through the interaction or relationship.
| |Essay Title: |Selves and culture according to… Critically discuss how the Dialogue self-theory and Narrative | | |psychology link individuals’ self-understanding to their cultural context | “Regarding the intersections between self and culture, this approach facilitates the study of self as ‘culture-inclusive’ and of culture as ‘self- inclusive’” (Hermans 2001, p. 243). By looking at the Dialogue self-theory (DST) one can see that it emphasises how selves and culture are not distinct categories and suggests they are both of equal importance in making individuals who they are today. In order to investigate how this approach facilities both selves and culture I am going to investigate Herman’s work on the DST and compare and contrast this with McAdams work on narrative psychology. Firstly, I will investigate Herman’s approach on the DST which emphasises the minds ability to imagine different positions of participants in an internal dialogue in close connections with an external dialogue. In order to see how different positions influence individuals I am going to look into how different positions affect individuals by looking at internal positions (self-influence) and external positions (cultural influence) and how these influence each other by looking at contradictions in positions such as when negotiating multiplicity and the contradictory demands from British Turkish Cultures and how it was reflected in their talk.
According to Buchanan and Huczynski, I am a ‘responsive’. ‘Responsives’ are able to use levels of emotionality appropriate to the circumstances, which is thus positively related to team effectiveness. Since communication and goal setting/achievement
However, the decisions supports the belief among American educators and businesses that the skills needed in today’s society can only be developed through exposure to widely diverse people, races and cultures. As the Court concluded; “Educational benefits that diversity is designed to produce, including cross-cultural understanding and the breaking down of racial stereotypes...is further bolstered by numerous expert studies showing that such diversity promotes learning outcomes and better prepares students for an increasingly diverse workforce” (Hershberger 2003,
Cox and Beale (1997) suggest that diversity competency is “a process of learning that leads to an ability to effectively respond to the challenges and opportunities posed by the presence of social-cultural diversity in a deﬁned social system” (p. 2). Chemers and Murphy (1995) contend that leaders of diverse work groups need to be sensitive to differences when they exist and ﬁnd ways to reduce the negative impact of stereotypes. Furthermore, they argue that effective
As this course has progressed, I have found that metaphors are quite useful when trying to understand various issues encountered in organizations. In previous case assignments, we discussed “organizations as machines”, “organizations as organisms”, and “organizations as brains.” In fact, I look forward to the opportunity to discuss the utility of these various metaphors and how they interrelate. This I will attend to during my summary. In the mean time, I will relate definitions of culture prior to addressing the case assignment issues. The American Heritage Dictionary defines culture as, “the totality of socially transmitted behavior patterns, arts, beliefs, institutions, and all other products of human work and thought characteristic of a community or population.” Another definition embraced by sociologist states that culture is “the social heritage, all the knowledge, beliefs, customs, and skills that are available to members of a society.” Now that we have dealt with the definition of culture, we will discuss culture and why it is so important to organizations.
