Discussion #1:

Learn: Shifting Our Mindset

As new students in a challenging MBA program, you each bring to the classroom different levels of preparation and expectations formed by your experience. These form your mindsets, which can either enable or inhibit your progress in the personal, professional, and academic aspects of your life (Kinicki & Williams, 2016). The University Learning Goals are specifically designed to help you define and refine your mindsets for success at school and work and are incorporated throughout this course and program.

Instructions

Referring to the “Mind-sets: How do you go about learning?” section at the start of Ch. 2, consider the following questions. Answer one or answer all, and look for opportunities to develop a growth mindset through conversations with you classmates and faculty.

Scenarios

Scenario 1: What is your mindset?

Consider a time when you had a fixed mindset in a challenging situation in which others had fixed mindsets. How did this impact your performance and others’ and the outcome of the challenge?

What do you need to do to shift to or foster a mindset that will enable growth as a student and effectiveness as a manager?

As a manager, how can you foster a growth mindset in others?

Scenario 2: What are your goals?

What role does goal setting play in helping us succeed at school and work?

What are the XX Learning Goals and how do they relate to success at school and work?

As a student, how can you foster a growth mindset in yourself and other students so you can work together to accomplish shared goals?

Learn: Being the Exceptional Manager

Summary

Let’s leverage this discussion thread to gather the concepts and content from Ch. 1 that we may need to complete our assignments and that will most benefit us in advancing our careers. Avoid reading word-for-word, and use the following questions and scenarios to guide your inquiry.

Scenarios

Scenario 1: Functions of Management 

Whether you are an active or aspiring manager of others or just trying to manage your own career and life, being aware of and actively practicing the four functions of management is a foundation for your success (Kinicki & Williams, 2016).

Questions

List and define the four principal functions of a manager (Hint: POLC).

How are these functions applied at your organization (or an organization with which you are familiar)?

How can you apply each function to more effective and efficient at simultaneously managing school, career, and family?

Scenario 2: Management Levels 

As an MBA student in the School of Business, you are developing or honing your skills to lead for business excellence. An important point about leadership is that we influence others even if we are not in a leadership position (Kinicki & Williams, 2016). For example, at work, Sarah is not in a management position, but she often finds that she needs to manage her relationship with her boss and colleagues. Managing her boss requires a degree of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling to effectively establish her goals and complete her activities.

Questions

What are the four management levels?

In your current position at work, where are you in the four management levels?

At that level, what are your basic management activities?

What do you need to do to move to a higher management level?

Scenario 3: Managerial Skills 

To be good managers, Kinicki and Williams (2016) say that we need to develop strong technical, conceptual, and human skills.

Questions

Explain each of the managerial skills.

Considering your current job or a job to which you aspire, do you have the necessary technical, conceptual, and human skills to be successful?

How can you apply management concepts from this course to develop or hone your managerial skills?

Scenario 4: Managerial Roles 

Managers fulfill three important roles: interpersonal, informational, and decisional.

Questions

Explain each of the roles that managers play.

How do you rate against each?

How will you leverage your time and activities in the MBA program to develop your interpersonal, informational, and decisional skills?
