DEVELOPING A MISSILE: THE POWER OF AUTONOMY AND LEARNING 7 recommendation would be to not only listen to your employees but also take action when there is just cause to do so. Lastly, a recommendation that can be used throughout any organization would be to provide training when needed. In the JASSM program I would recommend that Terry Little partake in leadership training. He was so concerned and driven by bottom line results that he failed to see the value in the personal relationships required to maintain success for long-term results. Little could have also offered training to the manager he fired because he did not understand Little’s personality. Under my direction training would be a requirement at least annually for all employees. Employees would receive value by learning or refreshing on current job skills and exposer to the proper forms of communication with management and team members. Terry Little overall was an effective leader. He had a reputation of getting the job done and getting projects on tasks. His areas of weakness were communication and positive encouragement tactics. Little also expressed areas of inconsistencies with treating each employee fairly and listening to his staff’s concerns. Terry Little possessed the technical aspects of an effective leader but lacked in communication between management and staff. Little was open to listening to improvements in process or procedures but was not concerned with the human aspect of the position. For Little to improve on his lack of communication skills with his staff he would have to first realize he has an issue. “If you believe you have all the answers, you simply have no reason to listen to others” ("How to Really Listen to Your Employees," 2015). If Little would come to the realization of his lack of communicating and listening to his staff there is no measuring how much success he would accomplish on future projects.

    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.
