SHRM Competency:

Consultation – The ability to provide guidance to organizational stakeholders.

PROBLEM

All organizations have communication challenges. How do you identify  and address these issues as a HR professional or consultant? How can  your organization overcome this challenge and improve the communication  flow?

In this project, you will use a diagnostic tool called a communication audit in order to assess organizational communication within an organization of your choice.

STEPS

  1. Administer the communication audit survey in  your organization. In order to obtain valid results, you want to survey  between 15-20 people. You may print out the survey and distribute it in  person for completion, or you may administer it online, for example,  using Survey Monkey or Google Forms.  The survey includes questions that tap into five different areas of  organizational communication: (1) Receiving information from others, (2)  Sending information to others, (3) Sources of information, (4)  Timeliness of information, and (5) Channels of communication. Within  these five areas of organizational communication, identify one major  area of concern to address based on the responses from the survey.
  2. You will then analyze and synthesize the results of the data obtained from your audit effort and create your Audit Report using the format below.
  3. Based on the communication audit identify one critical communication  challenge that needs to be addressed within your organization. Research  the scholarly literature for recommendations about how the organization  can address this issue.
  4. Participate in the discussions by reflecting on your work and sharing feedback with others in the class.
  5. Create and deliver a presentation that provides the results of your  audit with suggestions for improvement based on the data obtained from  the audit and the literature on organizational communication.

FORMAT

Audit Report:

Present an introduction that describes your research methodology and  provides details of the survey administration, response rate, and  characteristics of the survey population.

Develop a professionally-written narrative in which you describe the  data using appropriate tables, charts, and graphs. Include a detailed  analysis followed by a summary of your findings, using the example in  the “Collecting and Analyzing Data” file below. Identify the top  communication challenge from your survey, and present your  recommendations to strengthen this communication challenge, based on the  scholarly literature. In the appendix, present the survey questions and  the responses for each question.

Presentation:

Your presentation should be professional and creative. Adding audio  and/or visual elements on the slides is highly recommended. Text should  be the proper size for viewing during a presentation. Your presentation  will need title and citation slides. You must have a minimum of 3  reliable sources in your citations. Use APA format for the in-text  citations you use to support your arguments. Don’t forget to check your  spelling! As a friendly reminder, all words must be yours and your own  typing. You may not copy text directly from a source

You may use presentation software of your choice. Examples include  (but are not limited to): MS Powerpoint, Prezio, Animoto, GoAnimate

PLEASE NOTE: Your presentation software should not  incur any costs. You are responsible for understanding how to use the  software. You will need to submit your work in a format that can be  easily opened by your colleagues and the instructor.

Employee Coaching

Of what benefit is employee coaching, and is it different from mentoring?

Effective coaching is one of the most important functions a manager can perform. Coaching helps to empower employees rather than control them. The coaching process encourages employees to “accept responsibility for their own performance” and helps to improve poor performance (Werner, 2017, p. 356). Another benefit of coaching is to improve communication and strengthen interactions between managers and their subordinates. Effective performance at the individual and team efforts will ultimately help the company achieve greater results.

Managers must be trained on techniques to provide effective coaching to their teams. This training is the responsibility of the HRD team. Coaching characteristics to develop are humility, warmth, self-confidence, moral values, optimism, and trustworthiness (Werner, 2017). While coaching training helps to professionally develop managers within an organization, an added benefit is that the skills learned can also be applied to help to improve their personal relationships.

The coaching provided by a Supervisor or Manager differs from the coaching provided by a mentor. A mentor can be anyone else inside or outside of an organization that can help teach an individual new skills or offer “life” advice. However, a mentor “lacks the information, opportunity, and authority” to effectively coach an employee to perform their tasks effectively within an organization (Werner, 2017, p. 356). The Supervisor has the responsibility to provide ongoing performance management support to encourage employees to perform optimally without coercion.

In my career, I have had the privilege to have few mentors from whom I would refer to as my “personal coaches”. These mentors have provided me with personal and professional advice and have helped me navigate through some of the most difficult challenges I have encountered throughout my career. For example, one helped me make the decision that it was acceptable for me to want to leave a company we both worked for in order to pursue a new challenge. I have never asked my mentors for help on how I could perform better at my job. I always have those conversations with my direct Supervisor. It is important for me to ensure that I receive adequate coaching, including feedback and support, from my Supervisor so that I am consistently encouraged to help myself, my team and our company succeed. If I don’t feel I am receiving the support I need, I may find myself seeking advice from one of my mentors for how to navigate that difficult conversation with my Supervisor.
