MGT420 Discussion Module 3

Business Finance

The reading by Shearouse (2011) discusses five conflict management styles. Many companies sell conflict style questionnaires for use in organizations. For the first week of this module, try your hand at a free questionnaire. Here is one that allows you to identify your own conflict management style based on five styles similar to those discussed in Shearouse (2011):

Report your rating as well as your general impressions about the usefulness of this questionnaire. Were you surprised by the results? Do you think the results are accurate? Would the questionnaire be useful for your organization?

For week two of this module, try your hand at using some of the conflict management or negotiation tactics discussed in this module. This could be with a coworker or family member. If everything is peaceful these days at home or at work, you can also try negotiating for a better deal, such as calling up your credit card company to try to get a lower interest rate or calling up your cell phone carrier to get a lower monthly rate. Share the results with your classmates, and don’t cause too much trouble…

Reflecting upon your Module 02 Discussion post, utilize your response to create a chart or diagram representing the change model that you are implementing -make sure to create a comparative demonstrating showing the old model against your new change plan.

Example: If you have chosen to use Fiedler’s Contingency Model as the change model to utilize with your project, your chart will reflect how your will create organization change based upon the model’s situational leadership style and situational favorableness.

Once you have created your change model chart, write a short description of its elements.

Note: The chart will be included in your final project proposal.

I will attach Example of Charts

Below is my discussion post for reference :

The question was:

Gaining an understanding of the various models of leadership theory is critical in order to understand what skills and abilities are needed to influence the desired change in an organization.

For this discussion, reflect upon your chapter and module readings and articulate your personal view as to which model would be most effective in achieving results in your project case study. Since the selection of a model must apply to a given situation, please provide an example of how your selected model will be implemented in your change initiative.

My answer was

Influencing desired changes in an organization requires coming up with concepts. As a leader, the first step should be to try and understand leadership models. After examining the possible approaches to a problem at hand, a leader will be able to analyze how his or her idea will affect the people and if at all it will work out. This is because there are always many factors in a social, economic and political setting. It does not matter the type of policies implemented should be considerate. The FCM approach would be more suitable. It’s more malleable, and adaptable in the type of work environment for Delta.

Business Finance

Part 1 (150 words)

An externality constitutes a market failure. An example of an “negative” externality is air pollution from power-generating facilities (e.g., coal-fired power plant). Identify and explain two market-based solutions that would help to mitigate negative externalities, like air pollution? How would government, if at all, need to play a role in pollution abatement?

Part 2 (150)

Have legislative remedies, like the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, produced results to mitigate negative externalities? At what cost? Have the benefits of the legislation outweighed the costs to industry? Identify and describe two additional measures that state and/or city governments are undertaking to reduce contributions to climate change by addressing degradation of air, land, and water (e.g., efforts in California, City of Phoenix).
