After careful review of the self-assessments administered to three of Riordan’s employees, the following motivation action plan details the strategies suggested for each employee based on individual characteristics in an attempt to maintain or increase his or her levels of motivation.
In regard to employee Brian Tumbarello, Riordan chose a motivational strategy and action plan conducive to the self-determination theory, “which proposes that people prefer to feel they have control over their actions, so anything that makes a previously enjoyed task feel more like an obligation than a freely chosen activity will undermine motivation” (Robbins & Judge, 2011, p. 211). Because Brian is definitely satisfied in his position, the need to increase his wage at this time is not necessary. Positive plans for motivational strategy should focus on maintaining his interest while allowing him additional freedom to make decisions. Supporting both his growth and development within the organization may allow Brian to advance into a management position if he desires.
Although Linda’s performance rating appears to be low, she does possess skills and knowledge beneficial to the company. Motivational strategies suggested for her would be to introduce her into a job rotation for a trial period of two months. During this time, the company should recognize her accomplishments as well as monitor her progress to determine if there is an area she would be more efficient and satisfied in given her skills and knowledge. Riordan also needs to set specific goals for Linda verifiable, tangible, and measurable. These strategies…...

...Re: The Action Plan 1. The Situation: At Subway Restaurant, the winter months are especially tough and the low revenue generates a problem. The purpose of the report is identifying a problem at Subway and developing a plan that solves the problem. 2. The Problems (table 1): * Lack of traffic in the stores throughout the winter The summer and spring month’s people are leaving the house much more frequently than in the summer which poses a problem for Subway because there is no delivery. Also, fitness and exercise are priorities for people but in the winter many individuals are lose the drive for health. * Higher food costs in the winter In the winter the price of vegetables is higher than in the summer because of the change in temperature. Higher prices pose a problem for Subway because the price of sandwiches does not increase because the cost of vegetables does. Also, because Subway is a franchise, all food must be ordered through Subway which means there is a set price. 3. The Solutions (table 2) The goal of implementing change: * In short term, draw customers into the store Keep customers coming back to the store * The focus of specials during the winter months * The menu options during the winter months 4. Executing the Plan * First, offering soup with sandwiches as part of specials will draw customers because people like * In the long term, generate for revenue during the winter months The changes that need to be made...

...Motivation Action Plan David Evinrude MGT 311 March 3, 2014 John Clair Motivation Action Plan Employees are a critical element to the successful operation of a business and building customer satisfaction in the field. Understanding an employee's behavioral characteristics helps management understand the strengths and weaknesses of an employee while providing them with valuable information to help them develop a strategy to keep them motivated. The motivational strategy that a manager develops for each individual employee could either make or break the organization when it comes to the customer or job satisfaction. After reviewing the employee's assessments and management performance, similarities were discovered between each employee. Each employee seemed to have middle to higher emotional intelligence and were pretty involved in their current positions. A couple of the employee's seemed to become bored with tasks and would lose their focus when it came to tasks that need to be completed while the other employee was focused with the tasks at hand. Upon reviewing each employee's portfolio, it seems each person required the same type of action plan to keep them motivated. In developing the motivational action plan, each employee had a common area that would help keep them motivated. The goal setting approach was identified as a key motivational strategy for each employee. Goal setting provides each person with a defined set of goals that need to be completed...

...PSY 108: Action Plan Step 3: Final Action Plan Student: Gary Claiborne Date: 7/27/14 Literature Review Stress is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. Stress is different for each person. What one person feels is a stressful situation, another individual might not find stressful at all. People also handle stress differently. There is a lot of interpretation when it comes to stress. People deal with stress in a variety of ways. Some people handle stress better than others. Through the experiments we read about throughout the class we learned people handle stress differently and are influenced by the behaviors of others when it comes to a stressful situation. Introduction On the Holmes and Rahe self-assessment I scored a 120. This gives me a low chance of becoming ill in the future. On the Holmes and Rahe college student self-assessment, I don’t remember my exact score, but it was less than 150 which indicates mild stress. Nothing really stood out to me the most when I took these assessments. I completed these same assessments in the last course I completed at SNHU. My results did not surprise me. What I found most interesting is that the items that gave me the most points were things that I did not see as stressful events. To me Christmas and vacation are fun and relaxing events. I never really stress about either of those events. I do see where some people might find them stressful though. I...

...UNIVERSITY OF LA VERNE La Verne, California ACTION PLAN FOR CHANGE A Paper Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for MGMT 569: Conflict Management and Organizational Change Student’s Name College of Business and Public Management Department of Management and Leadership May 2014 Action Plan for Change Organizational Description The organization that is the subject of my action plan for change is the xxxx. The xxx has gone through many changes with the creation of a formal human resources division within recent years. Attempts to centralize the recruitment and hiring process in the human resources division with limited staff have been unsuccessful. A formal recruitment and hiring process was implemented in the past two years that helped to centralize the process, but also increased the time to get new employees started in the organization. Believing that creating a formal process will alter informal realities is a myth in planning for change (Cloke & Goldsmith, 2000). Hiring supervisors have reacted to human resources involvement in the process negatively. I have noticed an increase in managers looking toward me to make decisions that they should be able to make themselves. They have also stopped doing some tasks related to the employment process that they should still be completing. A change is needed that will involve human resources...

...The organization that I have chosen to talk in my action plan is the 31ST Seabee Readiness Group (SRG). The 31ST SRG is a command under the US Navy and its mission is as follows; The mission of the 31ST SRG, under the direction of FIRST Naval Construction Division (1NCD), is to train, mobilize and equip all Pacific Fleet Naval Constructions Forces units for the purpose of attaining the highest possible state of readiness and ensure they are equipped and posture for mission success. The action plan that I have created is to implement more training for the Logistic Specialists (LS) attached to the Seabee battalions. Seabees are a known force within the department of the Navy. Their missions consist in deploying into remote sites and establish a camp with all the required assets and establishments for other forces to come in and take over the camp and fulfill their mission or tasks. However, the LS lack the necessary training to set up and operate a post office, and this is becoming a burden to some by not having postal services while in the war zone. This is a major deterrent to the morale of the unit. Issues The LS stationed within the Seabee units are not being provided with the necessary training to fulfill their duties while import or on deployment. After every deployment my office conducts a meeting with the battalion and we discuss the issues, lessons learned from the deployment and what needs to be done to assist them on having a successful...
