Week 10 Discussion: We are done! Not so fast!
Respond to the colleagues posts regarding the following:
- You have now delivered the project to your customer ahead of schedule, but slightly over budget. Now, it is time to reflect on what went well and what didn’t go so well. Based on feedback throughout the course, what would you have done differently in terms of scope, resources, and / or schedule, and why?
- After posting your response, respond to at least one (1) of your classmates on their recommendations.
EE’s post states the following:
It took the leadership I am under now, to know what good leadership is. He does exactly what you mentioned. He took the time to learn his team, even down to how we communicate. Learning what motivates a team member is great when that team member knows. I had to think about what motivates me to perform my job well.
Sure having a family to support is part of it but mainly it is the leadership. My manager treats me with respect and allows the team to make decisions. He trusts us to work the hours we are supposed to whether at home or the office.
Other members on the team respond well to food and or small gifts. When he travels out of town, he always manages to bring us something back, even if it’s a pen. Recognition is one of the top-cited employee needs and there are many ways to do it (Fusion, 2017).
It took a little over 90 days for my manager to learn me when I joined the team so that is accurate. I do not know many managers that take the time to learn their employees, lead by example and use their employees strengths to maximize their use at the respective company.
