The paper "Communicating the Organisation's Objectives, Standards and Values" is a perfect example of a management assignment. I ensured that every new member of staff got the Organisation's handbook; it contains the organisation's goals, values and norms. After that, as the staff team-leader, I took the members through the handbook and answered any questions they had regarding the topics. It ensured instant bonding between the team and the organisation. Also, it helped them understand their duties to achieve the organisation's objectives. Linking the members' responsibilities with the organisation's standards and objectives As a leader, I understood that I had to be flexible so as to apply the organisation's mission and cultures in situations where policies became unclear.
My team was motivated to view the organisation as their own. In case they identified something not working, they did what they could to solve it. If they were unable to fix it, they reported so that someone with skills in that area was assigned. Clearly state the requirements of the team in a motivational manner. So as to attain the set goal and mission, each member had to have the same end in mind.
So as to achieve this, all the steps toward achieving the goals documented and timeframes allocated to each task. Also, each member was given a job description document. In the document, the role of the member was clearly stated and explicit directions are shown. I found it very helpful to detail the aims of projects and to assign every member with a responsibility to an activity of the project. Communicating the objectives and goals were also done through forums, group training and one on one meetings. Address the expectations of the organisation. During inductions, all members were shown the expectations of the organisation that they followed and also through on-going training.
So as to develop policies, all members and groups are involved. It is helpful in an emergency, like fire evacuation practices; this ensures safety to the members and parties involved. Members of the staff trained on the importance of environment conservation by avoiding the wrong disposal of waste products. It protects the safety of those around the organisation. So as to maintain good values and ethics, members had to respect their colleagues regardless of their cultural or ethnic diversity.
Every member has a right to participation in the organisation's activities and decision making. The staff members were to ensure that they always dressed appropriately and hygienic so as to ensure product safety to the consumer. It was also ensured by providing the customer with the necessary information regarding the products use and its threats. So as to ensure that the organisation offered the best service to its customer, the staff were advised trained on customer handling. Answered questions Role in influencing groups and individuals in the organisation.
Include all aspects that you feel are essential to building positive role modelling and efficient communication and consultation processes. The following key elements, trust, respect, confidence, confident role modelling, communicating effectively and discussion are all required to influence the group and members ethically. I learnt how to earn trust and not to demand it. For one to gain employees confidence, it's enough to be willing to do the job they do too. I became a role model for teaching ethics by showing the best practices to my team members, regarding the views of the members even though I couldn't agree with them.
