Interpersonal and Intrapersonal Skills in Management
Interpersonal and Intrapersonal Skills in Management.All organizations—even those that are heavily focused on technology—rely on people for their success. For health care managers, it is especially important to understand the complex intrapersonal and interpersonal dynamics that drive people’s behavior in organizations.
Bring to mind a particular work-related experience, such as a current or previous position that you have held in a health care organization. Analyze the fit between your personal values, motivations, and emotional intelligence skill set and those demonstrated by others in the organization. What do you think could be done (or could have been done) to improve the situation in the case of a misalignment? Articulate specific expectations for yourself, your manager, and others.
Finally, think about what you can do to leverage your strengths and improve upon areas for development in this arena. Consider how doing so would increase your effectiveness as a manager.
To complete this Application Assignment, write a 1 page paper in which you complete the following:
Analyze the alignment between your personal values, motivations, and emotional intelligence skill set and those demonstrated by others in an organization in which you have worked. (You should base your assessment on a real-life situation you have experienced, but—for the sake of privacy—do not identify the actual name of the organization or the individuals.)
Evaluate what could be done (or could have been done) to improve the situation, noting specific expectations for yourself, your manager, and others.
Propose strategies for improving your intrapersonal/interpersonal skills, and provide a rationale for how this could enhance your effectiveness as a health care manager.
Be sure to reflect specific insights gained from the results from your DiSC Classic 2.0 self-assessment,***attached*** as well as from this week’s Learning Resources.
