Discussion: Attitudes and Perceptions
There are so many statements and parables about “you are what you think” or “if you can believe it, you can do it.” These often trite statements are meant to inspire and embolden individuals to be better, do better, and become commonplace in the home and the workplace. Nearly every office has a statement or quotes somewhere in the office to inspire workers. What inspires you?
Begin by thinking about how attitudes and perceptions are created and how they impact the workplace. Using the theories of organizational behavior related to attitudes and perceptions, create 1 quote or statement that employers can utilize to inspire employees to complete their work better and interact with coworkers. Justify your response by identifying the theory or theories that led you to create your quote and your rationale for why the theory fits.
In response to at least two of your peers, discuss what you learned about how attitudes and perceptions differ when an organization has to go remote. Discuss how your quote would either apply or change with a distributed workforce. Your response posts are due by Sunday, 11:59 pm ET. Remember to read the feedback to your own major postings and reply to it throughout the module.
It is important that you review the Discussion Rubric and read the Discussion Posting Guide. These documents lay out the basis for how you should engage in discussions and how you will be evaluated.
All discussions combined are worth 20% of your final course grade.
