Participate in the discussions by clicking on the “Learning Module 4 Discussions” link located below (scroll to the bottom of the screen). The following questions will be used as the basis for our discussions in this module (these questions will be posted in the discussion board, but also are listed here for reference). Your postings should be made in the pre-posted question topics.
-How do the ideas in this TED conference video relate to our readings? [Be sure to use specific examples from the TED conference video and our readings in your explanation.]
– Spreitzer and Quinn (2001) list a number of characteristics that create a secure and supportive work environment (p. 107). How do these characteristics relate to people’s ‘tribal’ affiliation? In what ways, if any, might ‘tribal’ affiliations work against a secure and supportive work environment?
– Thinking of ‘tribes’ as groups of employees at the workplace, how should a leader address the fact that tribes can only hear one stage above and one stage below where they are?
Remember, the objective of the Discussions is to engage in a meaningful and insightful exchange of ideas that can help everyone gain a better understanding of the readings for this module.
