Interview 4: “Power, Politics, Ethics, and Communication”
- Conduct your fourth interview by gaining insights into organizational practices related to power, politics, ethics and communication.
- Based on your interview with the manager, provide a preliminary diagnosis of how organizational power and politics are exercised, how ethical behavior is communicated, and how information is communicated at different level of the organization (individual, group, department, organization).
- What evidence supports the manager’s explanation? Which theories, models, or concepts best explain what you observed during your interview this week? How do ethical and communication practices inform the organizational diagnosis you conducted so far? How effective is the management of organizational politics?
- Draft 1-2 culturally competent recommendations for change incorporating this week’s Organizational Behavior concepts (e.g., organizational power, politics, ethics, and communication).
- What multicultural and international issues would need to be considered in the context of organizational power, ethics, and communication, if this organization expanded globally?
