THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThe Learning ProcessIn today’s volatile global business world,individuals and organizations must becontinues learners. For the individual,continues learning should include looking foropportunities to learn from class instruction,reading, and open to or expose oneself to, alltypes of new experiences.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALLearning is a change in behavior orperformance that occurs as a result ofexperience. When we learn, two thingsinitially happen. First, we knowledge(perceive) the new information and then wetry to make sense (process) of theinformation.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALPerceiving Information The ways that people perceive information typically range from a preference for concrete experience (CE) to preferences for abstract conceptualization (AC).Processing Information The ways that people process information typically ranges from a preference for active experimentation (AE) to preference for reflective observation (RO).
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALA successful learner will: involve his or herselffully, openly, and without bias in newexperiences (CE). Observe and reflect fromdifferent points of view (RO). Interrogate theirobservations into logical theories (AC). Thenuse these theories to make decisions, solveproblems, and take action (AE).
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALLearning Styles Individuals develop their own learning styles that very depending on how much they emphasize each stage of the learning cycle. These differences are contributed to the fact, that the learning process is directed by individual needs and goals.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThe Diverger Learning Style Ideas come easy Situations are view from multiple perspectives Aware of meaning and valueThe Assimilator Learning Style Sharpened reasoning skills Forms integrated explanations Abstract thinking
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThe Converger Learning Style Decisive, practical applications of ideas Hypothetical deductive reasoning Prefers technical tasksThe Accommodator Learning Style Natural decision maker At ease with planning and implementation Enjoys new experiences People person
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALPersonality DimensionsPersonality is defined as the combination ofstable physical and mental characteristicsthat give the individual his or her identity.In common usage, people think of personalityin terms of traits, these traits are usuallyconsistent to a person’s characteristics.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALResearchers have identified five generaldimensions that describe a person’spersonality. These dimensions are called the“Big Five” personality factors.Each factor may contain a wide range ofspecific traits. The Big Five personality factorsare defined as the encounters an individualexperiences.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALUnderstanding personality traits can assistmanagers when predicting how a personmight react, either positively or negatively, incertain situations.Managers who appreciate the way theiremployees’ personalities differ have insightinto what kinds of leadership behaviors thatwill be most influential.

THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThe Nature of AttitudesAn Attitude is defined as “a learned predisposition torespond in a consistently favorable or unfavorablemanner with respect to a given object.Keep in mind that there is a distinct difference betweenattitudes and values. These differences are illustratedby three components of attitudes, which are theaffective component, cognitive component, and thebehavioral component.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThe affective component contains the feelings oremotions one has about a given object or situation.The cognitive component is described as the attitudethat reflects the beliefs or ideas one has about anobject or situation.The behavioral component is how one intends orexpects to act or respond to a given object or situation.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALResistance to ChangeResistance to change is anemotional/behavioral response to real orimagined threats to an established workroutine.Managers need to find ways to influencepositive behaviors during the resistance phase.This can involve programs or education for theindividual or for the group.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALWhy do people resist change?There are many underlining reasons whypeople resist changes but research hasidentified the top two obstacles encounteredduring organizational changes. 1) Communications breakdown 2) Employee resistance
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALLet us explore some of the most commonemployee resistances. An individual’s predisposition towards change Surprise and fear of the unknown Mistrust Fear of failure Loss of status and/or job security
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALLet us explore some of the most commonemployee resistances. Peer pressure Disruption of current cultural and/or traditions Disruption of current group relationships Personality conflicts Lack of tact and/or poor timing Non-reinforcement of current reward system The individual does not agree with the change

THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALKotter’s Eight Steps for LeadingOrganizational ChangeJohn Kotter, an expert in leadership andchange management, believes thatorganizational change typically fails becausesenior management makes a host ofimplementation errors. Kotter proposed aneight-step process for leading change basedon these errors.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThese steps are not designed to diagnose what needsto be changed but it is meant to guide managers onhow to effectively lead the change process. Establish a sense of urgency Create the guiding coalition Develop a vision and strategy Communicate the change vision Empower broad-based action Generate short-term wins Consolidate gains and produce more change Anchor new approaches in the culture
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALIt is important for managers to learn how toeffectively manage resistance to change.Failed efforts are not just measured in dollars;there are other costs and consequences, thatinclude loss of employee loyalty, loweredprobability of achieving corporate goals,waste of money, wasted resources, anddifficulty in fixing the failed change effort.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALUnderstanding the Power and InfluenceManagers need to be able to guide diverse individuals,who are often powerfully motivated to put their ownneeds and wants before participating in commonobjective.So the question is how do you get others to carry outyour wishes? Do you simple tell them what to do or doyou try to influence them so that they will voluntarilycarry out your wishes? No matter which approach youchoice you will be engaging in what is called socialinfluence.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALSocial Influence is defined as “the ability tocommand the human, informational, andmaterial resources in an effort to achieveorganizational goals and objectives”.In 1980, after a 13-year period of research,David Kipnis and his colleagues identified nineinfluence tactics that contribute to how peopleinfluence each other in an organization.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThese approaches can be considered genericinfluence tactics because they characterizesocial influence in all directions.In addition, researches have concluded thatthere a three influence outcomes which are,commitment, compliance, and resistance.
THE UNIQUE INDIVIDUALThe Power of InfluencePower: is the potential ability to influence the behaviorof others.Influence: is the effect a person’s actions have on theattitudes, values, beliefs, or behaviors of others.One-way effective leaders are able to get things done;is by their ability to draw upon and use their sources ofpower and interpersonal influences.

DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Communication is defined as the exchange and understanding of information between a sender and a receiver. The sender is any person who wants to transmit information to others. The receiver is anyone to whom the information is sent.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS The Communication Process Sender creates a message Sender identifies the receiver(s) Message is encoded Medium or channel is selected Message is sent though the chosen medium Message is received Message is decoded Receiver interprets or creates meaning from the message
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Communication starts when a sender encodes an idea or thought. This forms the foundation of the message. Next, the sender decides who the receiver is and selects the medium or channel, in which they will send the message. The receiver then decodes the message that was sent to them.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Barriers of Effective Communication For communication to be effective, the sender must properly convey their intended message and the receiver(s) must perceive and interpret the message accurately. Anything that gets in the way of this process is considered a barrier.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS There are three common barriers, which can affect the communication process. 1) The message is never sent or is not received. 2) The communication channel is blocked. 3) The receiver does not understand the message.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Personal Barriers Lack of variable skills to communicate effectively Variations in how information is processed and interested Variations in interpersonal trust Stereotypes and prejudices Big egos Poor listening skills Natural tendency to evaluate other’s messages Inability to listen with understanding Nonverbal communication
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Physical Barriers Environmental sounds Noise from other people Traffic noise Time Space Time-zone differences Telephone static or reception
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Interpersonal Communication The quality of interpersonal communication within an organization is very important. Managers that have developed their interpersonal skills are promoted more frequently than mangers with less or poor developed abilities.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Communication Competence is defined as a performance-based index of individual’s abilities to effectively use communication behaviors in a given context. For an example: Business etiquette is on component of communication competence.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS There are three components to communication competence. 1) Communication abilities and traits 2) Situational factors 3) Individuals involved during the interaction
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Managers can improve their communication competence through the development of the five communication styles/abilities/traits. Which are Assertiveness, Aggressiveness, Non-Assertiveness, Nonverbal Communication, and Active Listening.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS An Assertive Style is expressive and self enhancing, without taking away a person’s basic human rights, such as the right to self expression or the right to be treated with dignity and respect. An Aggressive Style is expressive and self enhancing but also, attempts to take unfair advantage of others.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS A Non-Assertive Style is characterized by timid and self-denying behavior. This management style causes others to take unfair advantage of them. Active Listening is the process of actively decoding and interpreting verbal messages.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Sources of Nonverbal Communication Body movement and gestures Touch Facial expressions Eye contact
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Listening Styles Communication experts believe that people listen with a preferred listening style. In addition, people usually choose one dominant listing style; we all tend to use a combination of two or three of these styles.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS The Five Listening Styles 1) Appreciative 2) Empathetic 3) Comprehensive 4) Discerning 5) Evaluative
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS The appreciative listener prefers to listen for pleasure, entrainment, or inspiration. The empathetic listener interprets messages by focusing on the emotions and body language being displayed by the speaker. The comprehensive listener makes sense of a message by organizing specific thoughts, and actions. Then this type of listener will integrate this information by associations among ideas.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS The discerning listener will attempt to understand the main message and then determine the important points. The evaluative listener will analytically and continually formulate arguments and challenges to what is being said.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Becoming a More Effective Listener Listening is an important skill that can be improved by avoiding common bad habits while cultivating commonly used good habits.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Bad Listening Habits Tends to daydream Listener tries to formulate facts Tunes out speaker when not interested Tunes out a monotone speaker Gets to emotional Disagrees and tries to argue Listener is easily distracted Denies unfavorable information Resists difficult issues Does not pay attention
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Good Listening Habits Stays in line with the speaker Reiterates for understanding Listens to entire message Gives the speaker full attention Avoids distractions Uses visual aid to enhance understanding
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Keys to Effective Listening Capitalize on thought speed Listen for ideas Find an area of interest Judge content, not delivery Hold your fire Work at listening Resist distractions Hear what is being said Challenge yourself Use handouts, overheads, or other visual aids
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS In addition, communication experts have recommended three ways for a manager to develop or improve their listening skills. 1) Listen closely to what is being said. 2) Allow others to finish speaking before taking a turn. 3) Reiterating what you have heard and give the speaker the opportunity to clarify the message.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Gender Differences in Communication Gender-based differences in communication are partly caused by linguistic styles commonly used by women and men. Linguistic style refers to a person’s characteristic speaking pattern.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS The linguistic style is the set of culturally learned signals by which we not only communicate what we mean but also how we interpret others including, how we evaluate one another as people. Increased awareness of linguistic styles can improve communication accuracy and your communication competence.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Electronic Communication The computerized information age has radically changed communications in both our personal and professional lives. The internet is a global network of independently operating but interconnected computers.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Electronic Communication The intranet is an organizations private internal communications system, which links company computers together. An extranet is an extended intranet that connects internal employees with selected customers, suppliers, and other strategic partners.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Benefits from Electronic Mail The use of e-mail throughout the world has exploded due to four key benefits: reduced costs of distributing information, increased teamwork, reduced paper costs and increased flexibility.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS Drawbacks from Electronic Mail There are also some drawbacks: wasted time and effort when dealing with spam and junk mail, information overload, increased costs to monitor usage, hackers, and there is no way to guarantee confidentiality.
DIMENSIONS OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS A Blog is an online journal in which people write whatever they want about any topic. Videoconferencing is the use of video and audio links along with computers to enable people in different locations to see, hear, and talk with one another. Telecommuting or teleworking, is a way for employees to complete some of their work from a remote location typically at home, using a variety of information technologies.

MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESMaslow’s Hierarchy of NeedsPsychologist Abraham Maslow firstintroduced his concept of a hierarchy ofneeds in his 1943 paper "A Theory of HumanMotivation".
The Five Levels of Maslows Hierarchy of Needs Self-Actualization Needs Esteem Needs Belongingness Needs Safety Needs Physiological Needs
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESPhysiological Needs: Include the most basic needs thatare vital to survival, such as the need for food, water,and air. At work, these needs reflex the needs foradequate heat when it is cool, clean air, and a basesalary.Safety Needs: Include needs for safety, and securityphysical and emotional environment. This includesfreedom from treats, such as violence, and an orderlysociety. At work, these needs reflex the needs for asafe working area, fringe benefits, and job security.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESBelongingness Needs: These needs reflex the desire foracceptance by one’s peers, having friendships, being part of agroup, and to be loved. At work these needs are the desire forgood relationships with co-workers, participation in work groups,and a positive relationship with one’s supervisor or/and manager.Esteem Needs: These needs are relate to the desire for a positiveself-image and to receive attention, recognition, and appreciationfrom others.

MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESHerzberg’s Two-Factor TheoryHerzberg’s research revealed workcharacteristics associated with dissatisfactionwere quite different from those pertaining tosatisfaction, which supported the concept thattwo factors influence work motivation.
Area of Motivators InfluenceHighlySatisfied Satisfaction Level of Satisfaction. Motivators Achievement Recognition Responsibilities Work itself Personal growthNeither SatisfiedNor Dissatisfied Area of Hygiene Factors Dissatisfaction Influence Level of Dissatisfaction. Hygiene Factors Working conditions Pay and job security Company policies Supervisors Interpersonal RelationshipsHighlyDissatisfied

The first dimensions is called hygienefactors, which involves the presence or absence ofJob dissatisfies, such as working conditions, pay,company policies, and lack of interpersonalrelationships.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESWhen hygiene factors are poor, work isdissatisfying. However, good hygienefactors simply remove the dissatisfaction;they do not cause people to becomesatisfied or motive in their work.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESThe second set of factors does influencejob satisfaction. Motivators focus on high-level needs and include achievement,recognition, responsibility, andopportunity for growth.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESHerzberg believed that when motivatorsare absent, workers are neutral towardwork, but when motivators are present,workers are highly motivated andsatisfied.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESEquity TheoryThe equity theory is a process theory thatfocuses on individuals’ perception of howfairly they are treated compared to others.Developed by J. Stacy Adam’s, equity theoryproposes that people are motivated to seeksocial equity in the rewards they expect forperformance.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESAccording to this theory, if people perceivetheir compensation as equal to what othersreceive for similar contributions, they willconclude their treatment is fair and equitable.A state of equity exists whenever the ratio ofone person’s outcomes to inputs equals theratios of another’s outcomes to inputs.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESInequity occurs when the input-to-outcomeratios are out of balance. If a personperceives inequity or out of balance withothers they will start a cycle of individualnegative motivation, in an effort to bringequity into balance again.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESCommon Methods to Reduce Perceived InequityChange Inputs: A person may choose to increase ordecrease his or her inputs to the organization.Change Outcomes: A person may change his or heroutcomes.Distort Perceptions: Research suggests that peoplemay distort perceptions of equity if they are unable tochange inputs or outcomes.Leave the Job: People who feel inequitably treated maydecide to leave their jobs rather than suffer the inequityof being under paid or over paid.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESJob Characteristics ModelOne specific approach to job design is the jobcharacteristics model developed by RichardHackman and Greg Oldham. Hackman andOldham’s research focused on work redesign,which, is defined as altering jobs to increaseboth the quality of employees workexperience and their productivity.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESThe model consists of three major parts: core jobdimensions, critical psychological states, and employeegrowth-need strength.Hackman and Oldham identified five dimensions thatdetermine a job’s motivational potential. Skill variety Task identity Task significance Autonomy Feedback
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESCritical Psychological States Experience meaningfulness of the work Experience responsibility for outcomes of the work Knowledge of the actual results of the work activitiesPersonal and Work Outcomes High internal work motivation High-quality work performance High satisfaction with the work Low absenteeism and turnover
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESEmployee Growth-Need StrengthThe final component of the job characteristicsmodel is the employee growth-need strength,which means that people have differentneeds for growth and development.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESIf a person wants to satisfy low-level needs,such as safety and belongingness, the jobcharacteristics model has less effect.However, if a person has a high need forgrowth and development, including the desirefor personal challenges, achievements, andchallenging work, the model is especialeffective.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESThe job characteristics model suggests thatthe more these five core characteristics canbe incorporated into the job, the more theemployees will be motivated and thus,creating, higher performance, quality, andsatisfaction.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESInnovative Ideas for Motivating Pay for performance Gain sharing Employee stock ownership Lump-sum bonuses Flexible work schedule Team-based compensation Lifestyle awards Pay for knowledge
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESA Continuum of EmpowermentEmpowerment is power sharing, thedelegation of power or authority tosubordinates in an organization.As a leader, remember most people want todo well and to improve, so give them chancesto learn and become more proficient.

MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESIn recent years, managers have focused onemployee engagement, which has less to dowith extrinsic rewards such as pay and muchmore to do with fostering an environment inwhich people can flourish.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESEngaged employees are more satisfied andmotivated because they feel appreciated bytheir supervisors and the organization, andthey thrive on work challenges rather thanfeeling frustrated by them.Engaged employees are motivated, enthusiastic, andCommitted employees. In addition, there is a growingrecognition that it is the behavior of managersthat makes the biggest difference in whetherpeople feel engaged at work.
MOTIVATIONAL METHODOLOGY AND THEORIESOne way to evaluate how a manager or anorganization is doing in engaging employeesby meeting higher-level needs is a metricdeveloped by the Gallup researches calledthe Q12.
Q12 High-Level Needs Metric Yes NoDo I know what is expected of me at work?Do I have the materials and equipment that I need to do my work right?At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?In the past seven days, have I received recognition or praise for doing goodwork?Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as aperson?Is there someone at work who encourages my development?At work, do my opinions seem to count?Does the mission or purpose of my company make me feel that my job isimportant?Are my co-workers committed to doing quality work?Do I have a best friend at work?In the past six month, has someone at work talked to me about myprogress?This past year, have I had opportunities to learn and grow?
