Your paper should be 2-3 pages. (The page count is just a guide. Feel free to exceed the stated limit).
Paper must include a Cover page, Abstract, Table of Contents, Appendix (see step 2 below), and Reference page. (These will not be counted in the page count).
Step 1: identify a company. It may be in any industry, private, public, or non-profit. Either speak with the manager or research the company online to learn about the companyâ€™s culture and to gauge employee engagement.
Step 2: rank the bad boss behaviors below from 1-12 (1 = worst morale killer, makes you consider quitting your job; 12 = still affects morale but better than the rest). The ranked list needs to be the Appendix at the end of your Word document.
Step 3: after ranking the list, 1) describe the business; 2) perform an in-depth analysis of the internal conflict in the company you selected (i.e., whatâ€™s causing morale to decline); 3) discuss management theories that could be utilized to increase the organizationâ€™s efficiency and effectiveness; 4) how does the culture of the organization contribute to employee engagement; and 5) using the top 3 bad boss behaviors from your list, what recommendations would you make to the owner about resolving conflict between bosses and employees.
All five sections in Step 3 need to have section headings (e.g., â€œInternal Conflictâ€; â€œManagement Theoriesâ€):
|The Skeptic â€“ does not believe that employees will do what they say|
|The Comparer – compares one employeeâ€™s performance to anotherâ€™s|
|The Information Disseminator – does not share all the information to complete a project|
|The Recognizer – slow to recognize employees|
|The Know It All – does not have all of the information, but acts like he does|
|The Late Night Worker – expects that because he checks emails after hours everyone on the team should also|
|The Over Committer – tries to be the fix-all-Manager for the organization.|
|The Creditor – takes credit for everyone’s work|
|The “Over” Talker – talks over everyone during meetings. Believes he has all the â€œcorrectâ€ answers|
|The Executor – rushes everyone through a project to check it off his list of things to do|
|Talking Out of Both Sides of the Mouth â€“ says one thing but means another|
|The Conclusion Jumper â€“ Has already made up his mind with the limited information|
