Is your work schedule affecting other people who are important in your life? Offer some suggestions on how to resolve such issues.

MGT605 week 3 DQ 1

 

 

Assume for a moment that one of your fellow department managers bursts into your office with a troubled look on her face. She sits down and says with a tone of disgust, “You can’t do anything with these new employees . . . they aren’t motivated by money anymore.” Construct a detailed response (like a script) in which you describe how content and process theories might be used to motivate employees. Be sure to include comments on two content theories and two process theories and highlight the significance of each theory.

MGT605 Week 5 DQ 1

 

Max Points: 10.0

Many types of negotiations occur in business settings. This example is indicative of the ethical dilemmas inherent in many negotiations.

Assume for a moment that you are the owner – CEO of a small machine and tool company. You have 35 employees, most of whom are highly skilled machinists who belong to Local 999 of the International Brotherhood of Good Guys Union. Generally, you are an open manager with an abiding sense of fair play and ethics. For this reason, you have been able to attract workers who are skilled and committed to the company’s long-term success. In fact, labor relations are calm – even harmonious. For example, contract violations are usually handled between you and shop stewards in a problem-solving context with an almost complete absence of acrimony or contentiousness. Now, however, you face a serious and unprecedented issue. Due to an economic downturn, business activity has taken a sharp decline with the expectation that things will get much worse. You have just met with your accountant who has informed you there is no other choice but to lay off people or reduce wages. Your initial meeting with the union representatives shocked you into reality since it was filled with divisiveness, arguing, name-calling, and even occasional profanity. Things turn much worse in the second meeting since the union lawyers were present. After reading the article by Reitz, Wall, and Love (attached in the Module 5 Topic Materials), you are stunned to discover that the deceptive tactics outlined in the article read like a primer for what the union is doing. Answer the following questions based on the case and the article:

  1. What type of conflict is occurring in this case and what conflict management style would you, as the manager use? Justify your choice.
  2. What are your options given the union’s apparent duplicity and lack of ethical standards? The last negotiations ended with your attorney angrily advising you to “fight fire with fire,” meaning that business conditions dictate loosening your standards of integrity and honesty in negotiation. The problem is you think she may be right. Describe specifically what you would do.

 

 

 

MGT605 Week 5 DQ 2

 

Answer the following questions based on the case presented in DQ 1:

  1. What are the challenges to effective communication in this case and how can these challenges be mitigated?
  2. How would evidence-based decision making help in resolving this case?

 

 

MGT605 Week 5 DQ 3

 

 

Workers increasingly rely on means of technology-mediated communication in the workplace. Besides email, workers commonly utilize tools, such as instant messaging and virtual meeting spaces, to regularly interact with coworkers and clients. How do you think such tools impact interpersonal dynamics in the workplace? What are the benefits and challenges of these tools? How might those challenges be overcome?

 

 

MGT605 Week 6 Discussion DQ 1, DQ 2 & DQ 3

 

 

MGT605 Week 6 DQ 1

 

What are the key values of your organization? How are they vital to understanding the politics within the organization, the influence tactics used, and the power bases emphasized in the organization? Why is understanding all of these important to you as a citizen of the organization?

 

 

MGT605 Week 6 DQ 2

 

Conduct some web-based research into two organizations that profess to have adopted a servant leadership philosophy (e.g., SWA, Men’s Warehouse, TDIndustries). What are the organizations’ values? Compare these organizations to others in the same industry using major performance metrics (employee turnover, market share, profitability, etc.) and conclude whether or not you think having a servant leader philosophy makes a significant difference in company performance.

 

 

MGT605 Week 6 DQ 3

 

Read Suzanne Peterson’s article, “Leaders, Too, Need Support.” How do you see yourself in the role of supportive follower? What challenges do you have with this concept? What can you do to overcome those challenges?

 

 

 

MGT605 Week 7 Discussion DQ 1, DQ 2 & DQ 3

 

 

MGT605 Week 7 DQ 1

 

One of your managers heard you have just completed your MBA. He looked at you and smirked and said, “All this emphasis on relationships is overrated. I have always made it clear to my subordinates what they need to do if they want to remain employed. All I have to say to them is, ‘Get it done and you will get rewarded, and if not, there will be consequences.’ It truly is that simple! Developing relationships with employees and suppliers or contractors, all that stuff is only good in the textbooks. It never delivers results.” Prepare a response to him and post it on the discussion board.

 

 

MGT605 Week 7 DQ 2

 

Contrast the tradeoffs involved when an organization decides it is going to restructure. Be sure that you evaluate the critical organizational design variables that you would want to consider if you were heading up such a project.

 

 

MGT605 Week 7 DQ 3

 

Evaluate the organizational chart for your current organization. Provide recommendations for revising the organizational design so it more effectively serves the mission of the firm and its many stakeholders.

 

 

 

MGT605 Week 8 Discussion DQ 1, DQ 2 & DQ 3

 

 

MGT605 Week 8 DQ 1

 

 

With technology revolutionizing the way that work is done, we see significant changes in both the organization of work as well as in organizational cultures. Read “How corporate culture will change in the face of openness” and “Remodeling corporate culture for the digital era” (attached in the Module 8 Topic Materials). Based on the articles, discuss the major opportunities and challenges that these shifts present.

 

 

MGT605 Week 8 DQ 2

 

Discuss the ethical implications of a leader’s role in the socialization of new hires into the preexisting culture of an organization. What responsibility does a company have to inform newly hired persons that it wants to shape their values, perceptions, and behavior to conform to the organization’s culture? What impact does socialization have on both individual and organizational effectiveness?

 

 

MGT605 Week 8 DQ 3

 

Contrast the corporate values espoused by two Fortune 500 companies. Select two firms that seem to manifest very different cultures. Your response should focus on the tradeoffs you would experience working in the two firms in terms of the values you bring to the workplace. How might your values fit in or clash with the culture of these two organizations?

 

 

MGT605 Week 2 Assignent Latest

 

Details:

Self-awareness is essential for developing management and leadership skills. Recognizing your own strengths, weaknesses, and values, and understanding emotional intelligence and learning styles can help you to be a more effective leader. Becoming self-aware is an ongoing process requiring introspection. The more often people practice self-reflection, the more opportunities they have to understand their own behaviors and adapt their approaches to working with other people, which can improve both your own and other’s abilities to meet their professional goals.

For the Module 2 assignment, you have the opportunity to take a variety of self-assessments to learn more about yourself and identify your assets and weaknesses as a leader. This will assist you in discovering how you can improve your own self-leadership skills. You will be asked to think critically about your results and submit a reflection as directed below.

The Module 2 assignment is only the beginning of a self-reflective process you are asked to undertake in this course. You should continue to think about your self-leadership skills as you progress through the readings and assignments. You will be asked to refer back to your self-assessment results and reflection when you compose your Leadership Philosophy statement, which is due later in Module 6. The Module 6 assignment will ask you to build on the reflection written in Module 2 in order to clearly articulate your values and leadership qualities and how they form the basis for effectively leading others and your organization.

Refer to “MGT-605 Self-Assessment Links” (attached in the Topic Material). Complete at least one test from each of the first four categories andboth of the Diversity Tolerance assessments:

  1. Emotional Intelligence
  2. Personality Test
  3. Learning Styles
  4. Values Survey
  5. Diversity Tolerance

Be sure to document the results of each assessment to assist you in completing the reflection portion of the assignment below.

Self-Assessment Reflection

After completing the self-assessments, write a 1,000-1,250 word reflection in which you discuss the following:

  1. Describe the importance of self-awareness, self-concept, and emotional intelligence and the role they play in enabling effective leadership.
  2. Briefly summarize the results of each of the six tests you completed. In general, do you believe the results represent who you are? Explain.
  3. What insights have you gained about yourself after taking the assessments? How could this knowledge influence your values, attitude towards others, and how you approach new tasks in the workplace?
  4. Explain the significance of the self-assessment results in relation to your individual behavior, your behavior within groups, and within organizations. What have you learned about your ability to manage others within the workplace? What have you learned about what it takes to manage yourself or how you respond to the management tactics of others within the workplace?

MGT605 Week 3 Assignment

Details:

Leading teams of diverse individuals is a significant challenge. Negotiating individual strengths, weaknesses, and personalities can be difficult. Nonetheless, as a leader it is your responsibility to effectively lead teams through establishing expectations designed to motivate individuals, fostering critical decision-making skills, and improving communication and collaboration among teammates. For the assignments in modules 4 and 5, as part of the management team at a successful, regional airline, West Coast Transit, you have been directed to form a team for a high-stakes, high-pressure project. Together, the management team will come to a consensus and make a recommendation to the director.

Your objective is to individually select a team of six people from the given teammate profiles. Begin by reading “West Coast Transit Company Profile” and “West Coast Transit Team Member Profiles,” which are attached in the Topic Materials. Based on your understanding of the company, the project, and the people involved propose your team selection. Your proposal should be accompanied by a 1,000-1,250 explanation that addresses the following:

  1. Why did you select the six team members you did? Why did you decide against the others?
  2. Considering the diverse factors that may influence the behavior of your team members, what specific strategies will you use to motivate this particular team of individuals? Why do you think they will work? What motivational strategies do you think would be ineffective for this team? Why?
  3. What particular challenges or conflicts can you anticipate this team facing? What strategies might you apply to manage this team’s potential conflicts? (You will learn more about conflict management in Module 5. It is acceptable to make relevant speculations based on what you know about the team members and conflict management at this point. You will have the opportunity to solidify your conflict management strategies when you join the CLC assignment in Module 5.)
  4. Finally, summarize your vision for the success of this team. Based on what you have identified as the team’s particular strengths and weaknesses, which specific leadership strategies might you apply to ensure it is ultimately successful? Why?
