Discussions
To participate in the following discussions, go to this week’s Discussion link in the left navigation.

  1. Your Culture Creates Organizational Culture
     
    Some students think that they do not have much of a culture at their organization. The truth is that every organization has a culture! Your organizational culture can be related to the way that employees dress, the way that they communicate, or even how they decorate their work environment.

    An organizational culture is often formed through the many different people that make up the company. These diverse traits may be your race, ethnicity, gender, age, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, ability, etc. Take some time to think about your own cultural background and how this can add to your work culture. Share these cultural pieces with us in this Discussion. Try to not focus on just one aspect of yourself, but try to utilize as many cultural elements as possible. Also, address why culture is important in communication. How does your culture affect your communication with others in the workplace?

    Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
     

  2. Effective Conflict Resolution
     
    For this multi-media assignment, watch the Tim Scudder Interview. Write a discussion response about a specific conflict you have experienced with someone else.  Although preferred, the conflict does not have to be work-related. Discuss why the conflict was not handled effectively and what could have been done differently.

    Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
