California Los Angeles Management of Employee Behavior Discussion

Read Chapters 8 & 9 of Konopaske, Ivancevich, and Matteson (KIM)

After reading the assigned readings, answer the following question(s) on your discussion board post.

  • Question 1: How can a leader prevent or lessen employee misbehavior at work?
  • Question 2: What is stress? Do you typically use problem-focused coping, or emotional-focused coping to deal with stress? Provide an example.

The post should a) answer the question posed by the instructor and b) critically analyze, to the best of your ability, the implications of the subject matter at hand. I expect that these posts will be at least 2 paragraphs in length and be written in a relatively formal academic style taking grammar and spelling into consideration. Please ensure that you provide the page from the text where you drew your answers.

For example: Customers expect organizations to be responsive to their needs (p. 9).
