Traditionally theorist suggest that the managerial function of controlling should not be confused with control in the behavioral or manipulative sense. This function implies that managers should not attempt to control or to manipulate the personalities, values, attitudes, or emotions of their employees. Instead, this function of management concerns the manager’s role in taking necessary actions to ensure that the work-related activities of employees are consistent with and contributing toward the accomplishment of organizational and departmental objectives.
Is it possible to manage without, in some significant way, manipulating or controlling behavior?
NOTE: For this activity you will be forced to argue for one perspective or the other. (Again, even if you do not actually agree, you must argue for the position you have been assigned!)
If your last name begins with a letter between A-H, you will present arguments that management does NOT involve personality, values, attitude, and emotional manipulation.
If your last names beings with a letter between K-Z, you will present arguments for why management DOES involved personality, values, attitude, and emotional manipulation.
Again: last name A-H: management does NOT involve manipulation
last name K-Z: management DOES involve manipulation
(a) defending the general premise, according to your assigned perspective, that management does or does not involve personality, values, attitude, and emotional manipulation (A-H: management does not involve manipulation; K-Z: management does involve manipulation)
(b) describing how effective management can or cannot occur, depending on your assigned perspective, without personality, values, attitude, and emotional manipulation (A-H: management can occur without manipulation and how; K-Z: management cannot occur without manipulation and how).
For this part of the activity you must cite and reference at least three resources.
One initial post due by Thursday 11:59 p.m. EST.
NOTE: You must respond to two classmates who argued for the opposing perspective (i.e. if you have a last name A-H and thus argued that management is not manipulative, you must respond to a classmate with a last name K-Z who argued that it is, and vice versa).
(a) discussing at least two arguments made by that classmate for the opposing view that were convincing
(b) discussing at least two reasons why the arguments made by the classmate were ineffective in convincing you of their viewpoint
For this part of the activity you must cite and reference at least two resources in each response.
