I need at least a 75-word comment for my classmate’s post.

The importance of tone…

Kimberly

At my current job, we do not much communicate through emails. Most of my work and communication is done face to face or over the radio with my engineer and other coworkers. But, every once in a great while I have an occasion where I need to speak with a superior through an email. About 8 months ago I needed to speak with one of my managers concerning returning to work after a break. I was impatient with the process and demonstrated this in the email by using language that sounded needy and attempted to take control of the situation. My message was quickly met with a response that drove me back to my place and informed me that I was certainly not in charge. My big mistake was using a negative tone and verbiage that immediately set my audience on the defensive. “Researchers have found businesspeople respond better to positive language and are more likely to act on a positively worded request than one that uses negative words.” (Campanizzi, Jane, 2005) There are times in correspondence when emotion can cloud assertive communication, but it must never be forgotten the importance of tone.

You have just been part of a merger. You have each been chosen to head up your department and merge the two groups into a self-directed work team. Work with each other to lay out a plan describing how you will develop a new team within your department or departments. It is natural that there will be some confrontations between people. Look at the stages of team development and use that knowledge to work with the team. It is recognized that some employees will refuse to be part of the team. In fact, the new ownership expects that there will be some who lose their jobs because of these issues; however, that is a last resort. Use all your skills to negotiate with employees in an attempt to resolve conflicts and pull your team together.

Because you are working together as a team, it is seen by the ownership that if one is successful, you are all successful. Likewise, if one fails, you all fail. The future success of the company is dependent on your mutual success.

Consider the following:

  • As a team, you must come up with a plan and be in agreement because you have to implement it in your departments.
  • For each step you take, provide a brief explanation of your reasoning.
  • Use the library and the Internet to research these issues

Please read the fifth chapter of Notter and Grant (2015): Fluid.

Then summarize your reading into six points:

  • three of the points will be points of interest (with personal reflection)
  • one point will be what you see as the strongest argument for explaining Fluid
  • one point will be what you see as the weakest argument for explaining Fluid
  • one point will be phrased as a question — a question that isn’t answered very well by the authors (and include why you think it isn’t answered well)

AND don’t forget:

  • the New Yorker cartoon caption (see Message Board)
  • to be prepared to discuss the various proposals for a class project

REMEMBER:

  • make sure you include both a clear statement of the issue or question you like from the reading, and a personal reflection on why you chose that issue or question

empathetic listening

Think back over conversations you have had with friends, family members, co-workers, or classmates.

Select a conversation in which the other person wanted to talk about something that was troubling him or her. As you replay this conversation in your mind, think about how well you did in terms of empathic listening.

Develop a 1,050-word analysis including:

  • Explain whether you found yourself being critical when the person really just needed someone to listen.
  • Identify whether you let the person know, by your words or actions, you cared about his or her dilemma, even if you were not able to help in any other way.
  • Analyze your listening performance.
