MGT/311 Organizational Development
University of Phoenix
September 26, 2012
Building a well balanced team that understands its goals within an organization, and implements them is both challenging, and critical. To be successful, the team must know the expectations, and they must have the tools to complete each task. It is the responsibility of management to ensure that each team member understands his or her role and has the confidence to navigate any issues that arise.
After reviewing the data collecting from the individual assessments, it is apparent that each person should be approached differently, in regard to motivation, and emotional techniques. People not only react differently to any given situation but also start at different points as well. Some people are more intense in common societal situations, which causes them to explode with little or no warning. The reason is an elevation in the emotional intensity level, which causes them to react in an emotionally unstable or intense fashion.
Based on the feedback received the three employees surveyed are positive fixtures in the organization. Natalie Robert needs more responsibility in the form of a supervisory or management role. Mike Camelot is happy and extremely proficient in his position; he should be awarded and praised. Randel Stuart is a hard-worker, who is willing to do what it takes to succeed in the organization. He should understand that there is plenty room to advance in this organization, to ensure he stays motivated for the long haul. Management strongly recommends that each individual complete other assessments in the program. Those recommended are; what is my basic personality, what do I value, what motivates me, what are my dominate needs, how do my ethics rate and how stressful is my life. These assessments will further help in understanding how to manage this team. Employee Portfolio Employee name:
