OB Optional Exam 4 SLIDES


Topic affective employee commitment

TOPIC

AFFECTIVE EMPLOYEE COMMITMENT


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Positive AEC:

  • I come to work to further my career success.

  • What does my org have to do to keep me?

  • Career mobility + internal locus of control


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Negative AEC:

  • I come to work because I need the money.

  • I have to keep this job, because I don’t know where I’ll get another one as good.

  • External locus of control


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Your positive or negative bias toward co-workers based on:

  • How “simpatico” they are with you: similar ambitions & skills

  • Mutual back-scratching potential (how much you can do for each other)


Ob optional exam 4 slides

ATTCON professional relationships can stimulate high productivity & success, but sometimes result in: favoritism (“teacher’s pet” syndrome); “Don’t rock the boat”; “Don’t ask or tell”; exploitative relationships.


Topic attribution theory

TOPIC

ATTRIBUTION THEORY


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Your perception of what causes people’s behavior and outcomes in life


Topic authentic communication

TOPIC

AUTHENTIC COMMUNICATION


Ob optional exam 4 slides

MUDDYINGAUTHENTICITY

  • Chain of command

  • Vision statements

  • Formal meetings

  • Memos

  • Org PR & advertising

  • Org politics


Ob optional exam 4 slides

ORG SILOS

Org separateness & isolation


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Human behavior is shaped and programmed by its outcomes.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

  • Formal reinforcement: job descriptions; annual reviews; formal training

  • Informal: teamwork; co-worker comments; problem-solving & conflict reduction


Ob optional exam 4 slides

There is a noticeable GAP between the interests of corporations & their employees. In fact, both are out to USE the other (at least subconsciously). This is the STARTING POINT for understanding the behavior of corps & their employees.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Corporations as whole entities (such as Google or Honda) behave according to the largely IMPERSONAL & AMORAL (focus on what is achieved, not how it is achieved) dictates of capitalism(individualized & institutionalized creation of economic wealth).


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Corps engage in self-benefiting competitive (profit-maximizing, cost-minimizing) behaviors using various amoral forms of power/influence (economic size, unique products/services, technology, politics, etc.) within domestic and international industries and markets. Corps are ECONOMIC entities more than HUMAN ones.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

The core competitive strategy of all capitalist corporations is to exploit IMPERSONAL/AMORAL economic, social, political, and governmental human impersonal/amoral SYSTEMS: money markets; stock markets; manufacturing; transportation; marketing; supply chains; imaging (advertising & PR); consumerism values; innovative research & development


Ob optional exam 4 slides

THE CORP-HUMAN GAP

Most non-executive employees in corps work in PERSONALIZED, VALUES-BASED environments & focus on their PERSONAL LIVES more than their professional lives. They work in person with co-workers, clients, etc. more than with abstract impersonal systems. They focus on their JOB more than the corp. mission.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

CHANGE STRATEGIES

  • Structural change: job descriptions; who’s in charge; org rules, regulations, policies

  • Employee participation: input to decisions & opportunities to make their own job decisions

  • Ice cube model: making small experimental changes in one area of the org as a pilot test for more extensive future change


Ob optional exam 4 slides

  • Internal change agents: influential people who informally champion change in their areas of the org

  • Sunset clause: employees agree to try out a change & vote several weeks or months later on whether or not to continue with it

  • Authentic communication: Building bridges of trust between “Movers” (power players) & “Shakers” (“rock-movers”)


Topic cognitive complexity

Ob optional exam 4 slides

A SIXTH SENSE FOR SOMEONE’S:

  • Maturity: reliability

  • Self control: stability

  • Self-centeredness: capacity to serve

  • Mood: approachability


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Expectancy motivation = seeking to motivate you by linking your org contributions to rewards and outcomes you want from the org (raises, promotions, job security, power, status)

Ob optional exam 4 slides

Achieving change cooperation by synthesizing the win-lose dichotomy of thesis (one point of view) & antithesis (a second, conflicting, POV) into a win-win synthesis of an innovative third position.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Follower typologies (ASP)

ALIENATED FOLLOWERS: Employees disconnected from the org who

haven’t internalized the org mission (didn't suit up for the game)

SHEEP FOLLOWERS: Easily brainwashed by the org but are passive in pursuing it (sat on the bench most of the game)

PROFESSIONAL FOLLOWERS: Willing to contribute to the org mission but need guidance (be put in the game)


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Leadership styles based on follower maturity:

  • Sell me, gelme(alien)

  • Tell me, watch me (sheep)

  • Empower me, not devour me (pro)

  • Put me in charge so my contributions can be large

    (F → L)


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Most employees are largely alienated from the formal (abstract) org & sometimes even view it as the “enemy.” The informal org of pro/personal relationships is employee “turf” that they largely control, thrive in, & come to work for.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

When the formal org dominates the informal org:

  • A slow-moving, inflexible bureaucracy blossoms

  • IVEs override EVEs

  • Innovation & teamwork wither

  • Employees major in the minors

  • Department “silos” form


Ob optional exam 4 slides

Power = the “official” (org-backed & controlled) right to assume designated org responsibilities & order others to assist you

Influence = an informal (not backed by org power) attempt to make people behave in certain ways for professional or personal agendas


Ob optional exam 4 slides

  • Power is limited by the org; influence is limited by human dynamics: interdependencies +personalities + agendas.

  • Power most affects official org activities; influence most affects the informal (human interactions) “real” org.

DATING A COMPANY

HAVING CHILDREN

Leadership/management responsibilities


Ob optional exam 4 slides

  • Don’t confuse leading with commanding. Leading uses INFLUENCE (voluntary compliance of followers) to achieve results. Commanding uses POWER (forced compliance backed by the org).

  • You’re not leading if followers HAVE to do what you say. Leading requires the voluntary buy-in & sacrifice of followers.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

  • To be a real leader, you have to have a “social contract” with followers, who are willing to make voluntary sacrifices for the leader’s cause/purpose/mission.

  • You’re not leading if people comply with you out of fear, dependency, ignorance, peer pressure, or brainwashing.

  • Organizations never make anyone a leader; only followers do.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

When you’re leading, you break through barriers:


Ob optional exam 4 slides

When leading, you:

  • Create new realities

  • Distill new opportunities

  • Usher out yesterday & usher in tomorrow

  • Never lose sight of constituents

Ob optional exam 4 slides

How you’re motivated is often based on a chain of linked psychological factors that you may not even be conscious of. There are few direct routes to motivating people. No wonder most orgs rely mainly on money to motivate employees--$$$ seems to be directly & indirectly linked to many human needs.


Ob optional exam 4 slides

EXISTENTIAL MOTIVATORS

“I want the meaning

(We never stop running for long.)


Ob optional exam 4 slides

NEGATED MOTIVATORS

“My org has mixed feelings about this.”


Ob optional exam 4 slides

So what can orgs do to stoke employee motivation given how indirect and complex it is? Simple, maintain a fertile interdependencies culture.
