In the video, the narrator states, “But a communication program, which should be clear and consistent, should also be addressing those aspects of the staff relationship that you need to have to make organizational change work for you and for your stakeholders.”
Prepare a 3- to 4-page journal article on how to use learning theories (behaviorism, social cognitive, information processing and constructivism) to improve their effectiveness as communicators of organizational change process. Consider your target audience to be change agents.
Address the following in your journal article:
Discuss how to use learning theories (behaviorism, social cognitive, information processing and Constructivism) as change agents.
Address aspects of employee resistance.
Discuss characteristics of external resistance.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
