1E the emotional intelligence plays a key role in the success of each level of your career and improve outcome of your work. One needs to effectively manage its emotion at the workplace to increase efficiency. For this one needs to make effort to improve self awareness to interpret and understand your own mood and emotion and the way it affect the other people. Employees with the high level of self awareness are confident and have real assessment of own performance. For improving the self awareness one needs to notice how they feel throughout the day and identify the source of your emotion (Parrish, 2015). You need to identify the way your negative behaviour affect your co-workers. The other way is to improve your self- regulation which is the ability to control and direct action which affects the growth and leadership of the employee. It helps in building strong self of self regulation and high level of integrity. To improve the self regulation one needs to try to stay uninvolved in politics, drama and conflict. You also need to find the way to release the stress outside the work through meditation, exercise and talking to friend and relatives.
Task 2 recognize and appreciate the emotion strength of others in the workplace
Solution 1 To avoid the situation of conflict we needs to effectively communicate with the store manager to identify the way through which the revenue of the company can be increased. The store manager instead of showing anger on the department manager needs to concentrate on the problem as it is not the role of the department manager to stimulate company’s sale (Ramchunder and Martins, 2014). To avoid the situation the management needs to make effort to implement positive leadership behavior. To effectively implement the positive theory one needs to express joint rights and responsibility in the rule and minimize unnecessary embarrassment. Also the effort needs to be made to promote the use of appropriate choice and maintain the appropriate discipline. The management also needs to communicate all the expectation of the employees in the positive way. The key motive of the theory is building positive relationship and to effectively handle the conflict.
The manager inability to effectively handle the threat of the small business was the key reason for the decline of the revenue. The store manager of the company has not followed self regulation principle of emotional intelligence where he has verbally attack others and make rushed and emotional decision. The decision was not made under control thus created negative environment at the workplace. To avoid the problem management needs to have the clear idea and identify the most important value of the organization (Domitrovich, et. al., 2017). The management before blaming others needs to make commitment to accept your own mistake and also face its consequences. In the case of the challenging situation the management needs to stay calm and should be aware about the situation. The store manager rather than shouting on the department manger would have discuss the issue and make effort to identify the way through which the issues can be resolved. The behavior of the store manager will have negative effect on the behavior of the other employees and will create distrust towards the company among them.
Solution 2 Most of the workplaces engage people from different part of the world and from diverse cultural background. The conflict at the workplace may arise due to different in custom as some culture avoid specific food and drink and also have the different ways through which food is prepared. Some of the culture has high family priority which may many of time causes conflict at the workplace and stress among the employee (Pool, 2017). The employee and workers needs to be considered difference of culture as positive reason of misbehavior at the workplace. It may be unlawful to treat the employee differently on the basis of the culture. The management needs to communicate with the employee that they needs to understand that change in behavior is due to culture and they needs to effectively coordinate with them. To resolve the issues the leaders needs to increase the awareness among the employee and increase communication with them. The workers during the free time need to make effort to increase culture knowledge to create understanding. Also you need to listen them and display positive behavior at the time of communication. It helps in identifying the way coworkers say things and ask question is anything is unclear.
Solution 3 The management needs to follow the empathy where he needs to set aside his own emotion to understand the feeling of the employees. The leader with the empathy has the quality to put himself in someone else situation which helps in developing effective team. The management needs to be emphatic to build loyalty and trust of the team member. To implement the same the management needs to view the problem from the perception of the employee and use the appropriate technique for the purpose of doing same. Also the attention needs to be paid on the body language as it helps in understanding the situation. Also the management needs to respond to the feeling in the positive way. Every manager adopts different style of learning and makes the decision which passes to the employee and allow them to be the part of the decision. A good leader creates the working environment where employees succeed and recognize that workers learn and process information to attain success (Afshar and Rahimi, 2014). At the time of training with others you need to identify the idea which helps in learning in the effective way. The increase in the awareness of the emotions helps in building good relation with the employee which increases their outcome. It assists the management in building good relation with the team members which helps in attaining the outcome as per the set standard. Also it motivates the employee to work within the team and increase coordination with the other team members.
Solution 4 the people who are emotionally effective build good relation with the other co-workers which helps the business in attaining its goals and objective. They effectively understand their part of work thus deliver quality outcome for their part of work. They avoid anger and rush which helps them in making quality decision as they analyze the complete situation before decision making and avoid biased situation (Thory, 2013). The manger needs to set the proper schedule and set priorities for each and every activity to guide the employee in relation to their part of work. There are certain laws which need to be followed at the workplace to create the supporting environment and culture in which the safety of the staff is priority and implementing health and safety policy. Also the information needed to support the staff and the efforts for working with the staff to handle potential stress needs to be made. The occupation health and safety legislation (OHS) helps in identifying the possible hazard at the workplace and the way risk arising from it needs to be controlled. It is mandatory for each of the organization to manage its risk regardless of their size and activity.
Task 3 promote the development of the emotional intelligence in other
The employees are the key resources of the company so their emotion needs to be effectively managed through effective training and motivational program Pat is one of the most efficient staff of the company so needs to be promoted so that he can guide the other team member in the right direction to serve the customer in the better way. Pat has the ability to put himself in someone else situation to understand their emotion and challenge those who are acting unfairly. The pat is also having good communication skill which has helped him in building good relation with the other employee of the company and to serve the customer in the better way. The emotional intelligence of Pat has helped in identifying the current strength and weakness to serve the customer in the better way (Espinoza, 2016). The strength of Pat was of strong knowledge of the existing product and good relation with the customer. He was also having good internal communication and successful marketing strategy which was helping him in attaining his desired target. This strength has helped Pat in effectively handling the high work pressure and serves the customer in the best possible way.
The training is being conducted to provide the learning to the other staff of the company through the experience of Pat. This will help in attaining the similar outcome in the absence of Pat and creating the feeling of motivation among the other employee. The balance scorecard has provided us information that although Pat has effectively met his target but was not able to attain the desired result through sales assists. Also after conducting 360° analyze it was identified that Pat was not able to make effective relation with is co-workers and this was causing conflict between the employees. Also due to huge burden Pat was not able to give more time to the training program which was also creating negative environment at the workplace. During the training Pat has discuss about the issues which he as facing at the workplace and the way he has handled those issues to deliver quality outcome to the company (Schutte, et. al., 2013).
The current goal of Pat is to get promoted as the team leader within the next two year. The goal set by pat meets the SMART criteria which represent specific, measurable, attainable, and relevant and time bound. Pat already has the prior experience in the relevant field and also has carrier aspiration and team mission.
Pat needs to look at the current reality as he has he has effectively attained the desired target and has the required skills to be as the team leader. To attain the managerial position he needs to make the effort to develop the skills for effectively handling the team.
The Pat is having the option to effectively lead the team or the opportunity of handling overseas customer.
The pat needs to work on the small team with the small business project to test his skills. His role can be increased if he performs well with the current team and needs to continuously review his performance.
So it can be concluded from the above study that the emotional intelligence plays a key role in stimulating the performance at the workplace. It helps in building good relation with the other employees which helps in developing career opportunity. The assignment has provided us knowledge that the effective leader must have the good understanding of the way emotion affect the performance of the other co-workers.
