My response:"My Perspective Question 1: There are many things that managers do effectively to help motivate their subordinates. I have witnessed both “Hall of Famers” and “Hall of Shamers”. I have worked for many different types of organizations, including small businesses, midsized, and big corporations. I have noticed that big retail organizations have a lot of “hall of shamers”. For my Hall of Fame, I will list Trust, Immediacy, and Providing Feedback & Seeking Feedback. Although there may be other positive attributes that managers can possess, these are what I prefer in supervisors and value in myself. I like to build trust with my subordinates, and immediacy . Providing feedback along the way is also an important part of building the trust and creating a better employee. When I manage I like to make the person as best as possible. I will listen to what they need and provide them with that, but only to an extent. I do not want my subordinates to become dependent on my assistance. They need to be able to grow on their own. If a supervisor is babying them or being too demanding they will never be able to grow effectively. For the hall of shame, I would put Perceptual Incongruence (Semantic Information Distance), Upward Distortion , and Strategic Ambiguity: Perceptual Incongruence (Semantic Information Distance) is included because many supervisors forget where they come from. They forget that they were once subordinates also. They forget to properly foster relationships. Upward Distortion was included because when subordinates are afraid to share negative information with management this just creates problems. Subordinates are usually the frontline to customers. They see all the problems in the company. If a subordinate is afraid to go to their manager with the problem, it will just escalate into more problems. The last one that I included in the hall of shame is, Strategic Ambiguity. This term can be used in a positive way, but is often misrepresented. It usually leads to confusion, when management uses terms that employees may not understand. Being clear on all organizational communication is important. A company should be certain that employees understand what is happening. Question 2: For this question for Hall of Fame, I pick Proxemics , and Consequences of Coworker Relationships . I have witnessed each of these throughout my years of working. I chose Proxemics because this is especially true for me. I have made friends every workplace that I have been at. They may not have been long term friends, but while I worked there I was friends with them. When you work with others for nine or ten hours a day, you develop a bond with them. For most people you see your coworkers more than you see your spouse or your children. Consequences of Coworker Relationships plays right into this. Although I have not personally been affected by this, I have seen it go negatively. I included it in the hall of fame, because I feel that coworker relationships are important. They help to build the team, and foster communication.
