For your final project, I want you to recall a working definition of leadership and organizational behavior: Leadership can be defined as the ability of the management to make sound decisions and inspire others to perform well. It is the process of directing the behavior of others towards achieving a common goal.
It may also be helpful to recall that the last chapter we covered: Chapter 10 – Communication. In order to be successful, individuals in leadership roles must be able to effectively communicate. In Chapter 10, we discussed the communication process, the various ways managers communicate with employees, and barriers to communication.
As such, for your final project, I would like for you to select an organization that you’ve worked for and/or attended – one that you’ve observed. Then, I want you to identify and explain 1 aspect of communication (discussed in Chapter 10) the organization’s leaders could benefit from improving, creating, or removing. Explain your response.
Does the organization display communication barriers?
Does the organization lack a clear channel and structure of communication?
Does the organization have a particular aspect of business that doesn’t effectively communicate – verbally, written, and/or nonverbally.
Does the organization communication lack clarity?
