Bob’s Meltdown In today’s workplace communication is key, collaboration crucial and teamwork a top management buzzword. These facets encourage knowledge sharing, co‐operation and a joint sense of purpose. However, such an increase in interpersonal relationships too often creates an unwanted side effect: conflict. (http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/abs/10.1108/14777280310795784) In the case study, Bob’s Meltdown, Jay Nguyen, CEO Concord Machines, has to handle a case of psychological harassment resulting due to work related stress; the main accused being his best manager, Bob Dunn. Jay needs to find a suitable solution as soon as he can to avoid being sued by Annette.
Leaders using this model are focused on setting expectations, measuring performance, and rewarding or punishing subordinates accordingly. The advantages of transactional leadership are in its clear policies, structure, and efficiency. The disadvantages of transactional leadership include stifled creativity, impaired initiative, and inflexibility of the organisation.

Now days good leaders seem to be few and far between in our political atmosphere. Those in power who are not fit to lead tend to be overzealous in their planning, lie about their previous actions, or disregard the needs of their people. Their inability to be capable leaders is mainly due to the lack of a character trait which is imperative in successful leadership: humility. Humility is required in traits such as being slow to anger, displaying patience, and being teachable by others. Each of these attributes stems from being humble, in lowering one’s ego below that of their followers, and is compulsory in a strong leader.
Bandura argued that if adequate levels of ability and motivation exist, initial attempts to do and continue to work, will be affected by SEF. It is clear that Simon doesn’t have any real belief in himself which stems largely from his lack of qualifications which make him feel inferior to his co workers. Weak poor efficacy is thought to be involved in avoidance behaviour which is evident in Simons persistence in putting tasks on the long finger. SEF has been found to be one of the strongest factors predicting performance in various domains. SEF has been studied in several previous procrastination studies, with results showing an inverse relationship with procrastination.

A study undertaken by Kelly (2008) found that mentoring has been an influential part for an individual’s career and personal development. Even though this was established in the study one key concern was raised. The concern raised is the presence of many mentoring relationships between direct supervisors and their supervisees. This is because of a lack of other career advancement methods, it is possible that current managers will choose and develop others much like themselves. The critical analysis of this concern is that it could deprive organisations from new ideas and new outlooks leading to a lack of compliance to the challenges now facing state human services
Laissez-faire leadership include the high motivation of subordinates such as personal freedom along with which the environment is found to be creative and innovative. The subordinates in the laissez-faire are developed with the initiatives as they make their decisions.

1. Introduction It is crucial for managers to understand what motivates employees because only then will they be able to meet their needs and demands. Employees will be more motivated and committed to the organization when their important needs are met and when these important needs are not met, their morale suffers and this weakens their motivation in the long run. Like all other companies, Microsoft does its bid to keep its staff motivated and the theories I found to be used by Microsoft to motivate its employees are Douglas McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y, Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and McClelland’s theory of needs. 2.
The delivery of safe care relies heavily on effective team working (Despins, 2009). Research conducted by the Joint commission concluded that failure in teamwork and communication were contributing factors for adverse events (Gluyas & Morrison, 2013). This could be due to the effects team working has on staff wellbeing and satisfaction (Agrawal, 2013). When staff are more motivated to do their job well there is a decrease in the rate of error (Agrawal, 2013). It was found that deficiencies in teamwork led to the
