It has been decided to manufacture kitchen cabinets. Mr. Venkat was asked to handle this new job with the help of new team of workers. Even without meeting new workers, Mr. Venkat informs to Mr. Raman a furniture designer, “I am going to have trouble with new workers”. When Mr. Raman asks Mr. Venkat why he expects difficulties. Mr. Venkat replies that cabinet workers are self-centered and they do not want to work regularly. You have to tell them what to do since they are not creative at all. As expected, workers are not cooperative and they believe that it is very difficult to work under him since he is impatient. Questions 1. What made Mr. Venkat to have such assumptions about the work force? 2. How effective was Mr. Venkat as a team builder? 9.12 KEYWORDS Job, Determination, Selection and Collection.

    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.
