Large Technology Corporation (LTC)

Sc​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​enario

Large Technology Corporation (LTC) recently acquired the company Small Technology Company (STC). You currently work on a team of four members at LTC. But, with the acquisition, your team has expanded to 10 members. The new team members have a diverse demographic makeup as well as varying levels of professional experience, both in their careers and at the company. They are also quite diverse in their personalities and backgrounds. With the rapid growth on the team, there have been some growing pains: Several new employees have stated that they feel frustrated and demotivated by the lack of training and clarity in job roles. You and the other original employees are feeling the stress of constantly needing to train and answer questions. With the rapid changes, leadership was not able to foster cohesive team dynamics, so the diversity in personalities and backgrounds has caused a great amount of conflict among the team members. Leadership is aware that there are conflicts on the team. So, they have asked you to develop a communication plan to explain the approaches you would take to collaborate with the team members effectively and cultivate positive team dynamics. Consider the theories and technologies you used in your management plan when preparing the communication plan. To assist you in developing your plan, review the employee personas of the team. Directions Communication Plan You have been asked to create a communication plan for your team. In this plan, you will not only address how you will manage the specific team, but also how you will manage yourself as a leader. To begin, analyze the team dynamics, specifically the cultural and generational differences of the team, as well as situations that may occur with challenging employees. After analyzing the team dynamics, you will analyze your personal approach to management and how you will manage the specific team dynamics. Finally, you will develop collaboration strategies to effectively lead the team. Specifically, you mus​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​t address the following: Communication Barriers: While developing your plan, consider the impact of cultural and generational differences. Describe the different factors that may act as barriers for effective communication in the team. For example, describe implicit biases that might be at play on the team, and explain how these may impact communication on the team. Personal Approach: As part of your communication plan, explain how you will manage yourself as a leader. Specifically, show how you will use emotional intelligence principles to analyze your personal approach to management. As you describe your personal approach, be sure to address the following: Describe the approach you will take to assess your own strengths and weaknesses as a leader and your plan to continually improve these skills. Explain how you will address your own biases and use empathy when communicating with the diverse team. Explain how you will manage your emotions when working specifically with challenging team members. Collaboration Strategies: Explain your approach to developing collaboration strategies specific to the current team dynamics. Also consider how you will resolve the team conflicts and frustrations that have developed due to the new changes. As you explain your collaboration strategies, be sure to address the following: Describe how you plan to promote effective collaboration within the team, while considering the cultural and generational differences. For example, how will you ensure the communication is relevant and appropriate for all members of the team? Explain how you will create a safe, open environment that encourages feedback to build relationships within the team. For example, will you establish specific group norms? Describe the strategies you will use to facilitate effective collaboration with challenging employees. For example, you might consider how you will manage employees who prefer to work on their own schedules or those who did not get the promotion they were expecting, and so on​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​.

PRAC 6645: Psychotherapy with Multiple Modalities

Introduction

In order to deliver high-quality, prompt, secure, and effective treatment, nurse practitioners coordinate their efforts with a wide range of healthcare professionals. To provide high-level treatment, clinicians need a wide range of abilities. Clinical expertise is crucial for making accurate diagnoses and providing effective treatment for a wide range of mental health issues. Clinical competence must be evaluated in order to ascertain current abilities and pinpoint improvement opportunities (Bennett, 2017). The essay’s focus should be on the positive aspects and areas for development of the practicum, as well as the experience’s overall purpose.

 

World War I with World War II.

Part 1:

For this part of the final, you will compare World War I with World War II. You must consider:

Causation of these wars.
Hint: Please do not tell me that WWI was caused by the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, that may have been the spark, but there are other factors leading to this war.
Impact of these wars on West civilization (not just the United States).
Select at least one other area to compare (technology, experience of the foot soldier, economics, role of women, role on non-Europeans, etc.)
You may answer this question in one of the following ways:

As a traditional essay (3-4 pages), or
You may prepare a narrated (by you) presentation on PowerPoint, Prezi, Google Slides, etc.
You may create a pictorial essay, including explanations of the photos and a comparison of the theme of the photos.
You may write from a firsthand perspective as someone (or something like an inanimate object) that witnessed both wars (Remarque, for example).
You can be as creative as you like, but you must provide a comparison of these wars revolutions and you must include primary sources for support.

Regardless of how you present your answer, you should include a thesis statement and a Works Consulted page at the end listing the sources you used for your answer.
