The project manager could also provide an outline/timeline of the project so that all members are aware of the expectations of the project up front. Lastly the project manager can set goals for each group or team member and periodically check progress to ensure project is running smoothly. This will also allow for members of the team to become more familiar with the project manager and his/her expectations and provide them the opportunity to discuss any issues before they become major problems. The project manager can recognize the team member during this period for a job well done to relay his appreciate for the work completed.

Retrieved from Week 6 Response Hi Shameka, I think getting the ideas of those with past experience in the field is a great idea. Do you think that meeting with them weekly maybe too often or would it depend on the time-frame for the project? If I were a team member I may began to see the project manager as micromanaging the project, but that would all depend on the amount of feedback that is needed in this type of project. Also, do you feel it would be beneficial for the team to do an exercise to build rapport with one another or just between the manager and the team? I think it could be helpful to help the team members feel more comfortable with each other and allow them to want to reach out to their peers for assistance as well. What are your thoughts?

Week 7 Discussion Question Influence" Please respond to the following: Summarize the six bases of power that allow leaders to influence the importance of others. For each of the bases of power identified, provide at least one contemporary leadership issue or challenge in your current or past real-life organization. Reward Power- this power is incentive based whether it is monetary or in the form of recognition A challenge that have recently experienced with this form of power is the over use of it. I recently joined an organization and was told that due to my performance I would be receiving recognition and a cash reward. I later found out that the entire division receives recognition and some form of a cash award at the same ceremony every year. Immediately my excitement and appreciation diminished. I knew that I worked hard and rightfully deserved the recognition but when other employees informed me that even those that had not gone above and beyond receive some type of award too, it made my recognition diminish in value. If awards or incentives are given to everyone that shows up (sometime) to work what weight does it have to those who actually worked hard to receive the award? Coercive Power- essentially forcing others to do what you want them to do This type of power creates disloyalty to the company and causes employees to look for employment elsewhere. I have experienced a situation at work where I was threatened with losing my job if I did not complete the casework I had been assigned. The issue with this was that I was in the emergency room about to have major lung surgery and my manager was still requesting that the work get done. I

    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.
