Maintaining Morale - “Project leaders must work to keep the project team, client, suppliers, executive management, and themselves motivated” (Kloppenborg, Shriberg, & Venkatraman, 2003, p. 80) Three tools that project managers can use to keep their team motivated are:

Celebrate the individual and the team for their accomplishments- team members feel appreciated and that their work makes an impact on the project Incorporate stress free activities- suggest exercises individuals can do on their own and as a team Have confidence in the appointed leaders- this will allow team member to feel confident in their jobs and know that they have management’s respect and support.

This has been the worst instructor I have encountered in my educational career at Strayer University. He has caused unnecessary added stress on top of the course material. Dr. Englehart was very difficult to reach to answer important questions regarding assignments. We did not receive assignment 1 grades back until after we turned in assignment 2. His comments were extremely vague and unspecific to individual work. After speaking with several students via phone in the class, we discovered that ALL of us had the exact same comments on each of our written assignments but received different grades. When I called and finally spoke to the professor, after numerous attempts, for clarification on a paper he was rude and very short. He still did not provide clear feedback to assist with improving additional assignments. He also made a point to state he was available for his students in the discussion board or via email responses, but that was not the case. I also feel his grading was not reflective of the work I submitted. This professor cuts and pastes all his comments and does not encourage communication with him to obtain a better understanding of the course. He encourages that we call him so that his rude comments and vague information are not recorded for others to view. I have contacted my dean in regards to his unhelpful feedback and his untimely grading of assignments. I sincerely hope Strayer University reviews this professor because he has made my last semester as a graduate student and others in the class a nightmare. This professor does the absolute minimum in order to stay on the payroll. He attempts to look responsive by posting several comments in the discussion thread, but they are not direct replies to the individual student. He is the KING of cutting and pasting on discussions and assignments. He has done the university and the students a great disservice and I sincerely hope someone looks into this. I have paid alot of money to attend Strayer and he did nothing to assist my learning process or add value to the assignments I was required to submit for this course. The students and I had to consult numerous times with each other to try and grasps concepts he was unwilling to explain. Dr. Englehart is a disgrace to the University.

    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.
