Communication

Select a manager and assess his or her communication strengths based on assigned reading concepts/theory. Research can also be supplemented from (but not solely based on) other information from academically credible resources. You may select the same manager as earlier in the course.
Assess that same manager’s communication weaknesses using the assigned reading concepts/theory. Research can also be supplemented from (but not solely based on) other information from academically credible resources.
Defend 2–3 recommendations for management performance improvement in communications based on sound, academically credible concepts and theories from assigned reading and academically credible research.
Assess the organizational culture in which this manager works, including how the culture might be impacting employee performance in the manager’s area.

Communication

NOTE:  Just choose which topic you’d like to discuss; you don’t have to do both of them.

Topic #1 –  Drexel LeBow Magazine (formerly called Market St. Magazine)

Those of you who are in the LeBow College of Business will know the answer to this question, but it’s an annual (formerly bi-monthly) publication that will now be called Drexel LeBow Magazine” (I liked the other one better, actually). So, I thought it would be interesting to assign this topic as your Week #5 discussion. Pick any article(s) to read and share, and if you would add to your discussion posts what page numbers to review, that would help the others who might want to take a look at the story you chose.

Topic #2: How to be brave on social media

I met the two men behind these brave social media efforts last fall. See what you think, and comment on how a person or company should handle such issues:

Discussion Board Rubric:  Starting in Week 1, by each Weds. morning you’ll see a new business-discussion topic posted. This activity will be required each week, and the content will vary. You should do at least three posts per week—one original and two responses to others–worth a total 10 pts. (for 100 pts. overall), with your posts due by the following Tues. at 11:59 p.m. There are 10 Discussion Boards required.

Be sure to greet those to whom you’re responding; i.e., “Hi, Jane, I liked what you had to say…” Also, to earn your full 10 pts., be sure you write a couple of paragraphs, please.

Instructions:

a. Reflect on the discussion-board prompt. It is related to the course learning and the connections you are making. How will you apply this focus? What stands out for you? What questions do you have? What is new for you?

b. One-word expressions or short phrases that simply agree or disagree with another student are too minimal. 

RUBRIC/Points

10    The author explores several aspects of the material and makes connections. The writing includes specific examples, reflective thinking, and insights about the topics. The writer should create one post (or more) and respond to at least two others over the course of the week with constructive feedback and/or a connection, link or illustration. Do not just say, “You’re right” or “I agree”–make your comments count; they should be insightful.

8 The writing is adequately developed and includes one to two examples. The writer acknowledges and responds to at least two ideas posted by others.

6  The writer only summarizes the reading, includes one example, and responds to one other writer.

           4  The writing is not related to the reading or the prompt.

 2 The writing is haphazard and unfocused.
