I have recently accepted my first supervisory joband the employees who work under me have strengths and weaknesses. When you discussthe Ken Blanchard situational leadership model, I instantly connected with it.I have employees who are validated by praise and other employees who work hardand don’t need someone telling them they are doing a good job to have a good self-esteem.I’ve learned when to coach, when to direct, delegate and support. Thesituational leadership and change my department in a matter of days and I lookforward to experimenting with other models presented in class.
I currentlyhandle new hire paperwork and there was an issue in the past at thisorganization of staff members accepting incomplete documents from new hires. I recommendedthat managers get training and include a check list on the cover of the newhire packet. If the new hire packet is not checked off fully, then the packetwill be returned. This new process has helped improved the new hire process andit also helps hold everyone accountable.

I am also in charge of processingdiscrepancy forms for timesheet errors, before I came to the organization,staff members refused to work on discrepancy forms in timely fashion, thislapse in judgment prevented employees from receiving paychecks they wereentitled to, employees began to thr4eaten with lawsuits and mentioning theDepartment of Labor as a warning tactic. I have solved the problem with the helpof fellow employees by coming up with a policy and process that gives our stafftwo weeks to process a claim vs 4 month that was the low expectations of thepast. In closing I enjoyed our class and I will continue to use the work bookand shrm.
com as point of reference at my current Job. Thank you for theopportunity to be a student in your class. I learned that I liketaking the lead when working in groups and the team I was assigned to join wasfull of different personalities. I learned in class that you need to makesacrifices in order for the team to succeed.
I am usually in the forefront forpresentations, but I had the role of being behind the scenes for our classproject where we taught the Star model in regards to preparing for JobInterviews. The process was quite linear and I prefer a looser creative flowwhen brainstorming. I also realized that I detest using goggle Docs with class mates.I would prefer writing my thoughts and ideas by myself and share them when theyare articulated after evaluation and numerous revisions.
Being an older studentwho already works in HR it was interesting to see a different side of HR. I’veworked for organizations in the past that had a lot of organizational problemsand training was always off the table. Instead of training underperforming employees,managers would fire employees after giving up on the possibility that anemployee would ever improve. I fell in love with the Kolb Model, it was thefirst learning model that resonated with me.
I learn best when the TeacherDemonstrates an activity and actively involves the student in the learningprocess. Every student learns differently, but I can honestly say when theoriesand concepts are humanized, when topics incorporate situations from someone’sbackyard no point intended, it reels them in. When there is a bottom line, asyou so eloquently stated that ROI is what businesses focus on when deciding iftraining is needed or if it’s liability. I feel that students also have thesame ROI lenses in regards to course work. If coursework will benefit them toget a High GPA, a solid job after school, add to their KSAO and allows them toutilize these information in the real world, then most people will find what welearned useful. I really liked the workbook you created. I honestly hadtextbooks because when I read I sometimes drift off into a passive learningcoma, but th4e benefits of a workbook is that we’re actively answeringquestions that will be useful during class to enter into meaningful dialoguesenabling classmates to learn from different perspectives. I learned aboutthe Addie process.
An effective tool that can improve the organization’swellbeing. The Addie model has 5 stages.In the analysis phase, didactic difficultiesare illuminated, the educational aims and purposes are accepted and the academiclandscape and the employees current KSAO are realized. The design phase incorporates learning objectives, variousassessment instruments, activities, specialized topics scrutiny, lecture andseminar arrangement and planning and means of mass communication. The design phase should be a linearprocess. This phase should be well thought out with a high level of discernmentthat prepares for the future vision of the organization. Cutting corners in this phase will disrupt thefuture organizational health of the organization. The development phase iswhere the creators innovate based off the data retrieved from the design phase.
and assemble the content assets that were created in the design phase. Softwareengineers collaborate with IT professionals to test through trial and error tofigure out what works best for an organization. The development phase isconstantly reevaluated before it deemed functional. During the implementationphase, a process for guiding teachers and the students is brought to theforefront. The parties involved should know the syllabus, Terminal objectivesand the enabling objectives. Aiding the learner in this phase is vital tobringing them on board to the overall pregame and endgame of knowledgebuilding.
In order to succeed, Learners and teachers will need to have thenecessary tools to succeed. The evaluation phase consists of two parts: developmentalan cumulative .Developmental evaluation is normally used inall 5 stages. Cumulative evaluation incorporates trial runs and experiments.These ingredients of Cumulative evaluation lead to valuable data from teachersand students that shares information that will give diverse reactions,responses and constructive criticism. Iwill share my biggest takeaways from this course? I will also share What Idiscovered about myself as a result of the experiences in this class andfinally I will transfer the knowledge I’ve gained in my current role as aSenior Hr.
