This week we are studying two chapters on Group Behavior and Work Teams. It is critical for managers and leaders to know about working in, working with and motivating work teams to increase productivity. With two chapters to read, your class discussion post is due Saturday night. Replies to your classmates are not required, but encouraged.
Read the Point / Counterpoint article on page 333 of the textbook (17th Edition) “To Get the Most Out of Teams, Empower Them.” Determine which side (Point or Counterpoint) you agree with. Write a paragraph (with references) on why you chose such. Don’t just do this as a class assignment, but really think about yourself in a managerial role and how you would “empower” your work teams.
When you are ready to reply, scroll to the bottom and “Post Comment.”
