MODULE 2 SLP Organizations operate diversely when it comes to the way they communicate with their employees. The communication climate of an organization can affect the mood and behaviors of the employees in that organization. If an organization has a supportive communication climate, their employees are more than likely to be more motivated. Organizations with a defensive climate tend to possess employees that are less motivated. This paper will discuss the communication climate in my organization which will be referred to as Rise Up. Type of communication climate “Sergeant First Class Curd this is your program, you run it how you see fit.” This was one of the first statements my Command Sergeant Major told me when I arrived to the organization. It was then that I realized I had a very supportive supervisor who would let me do my job without being too involved in how it was done. He would give me as much support as I needed in order for me to be successful. He told me that his door was always open to me should any issues arise. I arrived to my new office and was immediately welcomed by the other employees in the organization. They showed me around and answered all the questions I had. This made me feel very comfortable and took away my nervousness. As an employee at a company called Rise Up I had a very supportive climate. This aligns perfectly with my results from the Communication Climate inventory. On the defensive score table Rise Up scored a total of 85 out of a possible 90 points. This signifies that they are an extremely supportive organization. On the supportive score table Rise Up scored a 22 which is an almost excellent score since 18 is the lowest and most supportive score (Gibb, 1961).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
