You have probably seen this in the movies, but it is very real. In all Schering Plough and State Farm facilities ID badges were required to get into buildings and into some parking lots. You passed through a guard station for Schering Plough and had to show your badge each morning, and after hours to leave the campus. For State Farm while at the Austin, TX facility I watched as Security personnel would walk around the building and make sure that unattended computers where locked when people weren t sitting at their desks. I have been up to visit friends and when I looked in I saw warning notes from security on their monitors and a note sent to their supervisor. Q: Can you think of examples like tailgating at your company that you can share?
3)As managers/leaders each of us will be faced with situations where we are communicating with groups that just don t want to hear from us. It may be the subject, it may be the time of day or week (lunch time, end of work day, etc.), it may be external events (projects, deadlines, etc.), it may be bad news, but what ever the situation you still have to bring them together and communicate your message. As a manager or communicator sometimes you have to offer alternatives or solutions through the communication process to win over an audience and move forward. Q: Reflecting on our discussions, the reading assignments and your Learning Team work together what can you do to move a group forward in one of these situations? Q: Can you share an example from your own experience where you have had to move a group forward that did not want to go?
