For this Discussion, review the case study by Lawler et al. (2008) “Why Are We Losing All Our Good People?” . Reflect on how communication issues at the architectural firm affected the job performance and commitment of its employees. Then examine the solutions proposed by the four experts who replied to this case study.
With these thoughts in mind:
Explain whose advice you would most closely follow to resolve the problems at the firm, whose you would not, and provide a rationale for your choices. Use the Learning Resources to support your rationale. Finally, explain how you would ensure that effective lines of communication are open at your organization or one with which you are familiar. Include in your explanation the unique considerations you must keep in mind to ensure open communication among individuals who are from different cultures or work remotely from their homes or other offices.
