Concordia University Nebraska Failure Recovery System Questions

  • Submit Assignment: Failure Recovery SystemYou have all heard it before…. That negative, sarcastic, self-sabotaging voice that can resonate in your head. No one knows where this voice (call it the “weak” voice) comes from, but all have all fallen prey as it creeps into one’s inner thoughts and destroys confidence. On the flip side, everyone also all has a positive voice (call this voice the “strong” voice). Unfortunately, the “weak” voice likes to get the last word in and is the one that most naturally fills one’s head with devastating chatter. The “weak” voice promotes self-doubt, lack of confidence, and pessimism. Because coaches cannot hear when the negative chatter is going on in an athlete’s head, it is imperative that a coach prepare and train athletes to be able to be their own best inner-coach by giving them strategies to empower their “strong” voice.The first step is for the athlete to realize when the “weak” voice is dominating the chatter. The next step is to destroy the “weak” voice and replace it with the “strong” positive voice.This is the point where strategies can be used to help athletes battle and replace that negative “weak” voice with a more positive “strong” inner voice.To prepare: From What Drives Winning (Ledbetter, 2015, pp.91–125), review the 4 coaching strategies that are meant to help athletes become more positive and confident, to give themselves a strong inner coach and deal with the negative chatter inside their heads (to replace the “weak” voice with the “strong” voice).
    1. Give your best friend advice
    2. Plan positive
    3. Replace negative
    4. Opportunity converter

    Submit:Part 1Write 2–3 paragraphs reflecting on the 4 strategies to develop a more positive and confident athlete described in your text (Ledbetter, 2015). Which strategy do you feel you would most likely use and why? When might you use that strategy and what results would you hope for?Part 2As described by Sue Enquist in the video (Filmproject, 2015), design a Failure Recovery System that could be incorporated into your coaching program.

    • First, define what failure means to you.
    • Describe in detail what the proper response would look like if the athletes and/or coaches in your program were to fail. What is their physical demeanor, what words should come out of their mouths, what non-verbal messages do you want them to send?
    • What is the “failure recovery system” that you want their behaviors to illustrate in practice and games on every occasion?
    • How will you develop an environment of trust and acceptance of failure?
    • Are there failures that would not fall into this recovery system? Explain.

    Format your Failure Recovery System as an entry in the “Beyond the X’s and O’s” handbook in preparation for the week 8 final assignment.Support your statements with evidence from the Required Studies and your research. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.ReferencesFilmroom Project. (2015, October 4). Sue Enquist: Fear and failure [Video file].

Applied Research

In this assignment you will take on the role of a team manager.The team is multi-cultural and it is facing a major management crisis.You will use the details of the scenario found in the Guide file. Then, identify and research key course ideas and principles to write a plan.The essay is your action plan for managing the team.

This assignment uses a business scenario, and you apply theory.Your research assignment task is to write an action plan.(For information about how to organize or format the plan, see a later section).

Approximate page length: Estimated length 6-8 pages

Business Scenario:

You have recently been assigned to lead a 6-person team working on a new healthcare product that could revolutionize the treatment of diabetes. The product would allow glucose readings to be taken without any needles or skin pricks. Obviously, if the product is successful, the team and you stand to earn bonuses, promotions, and industry recognition. However, you are being asked to lead the team because under the former leader, the project team missed several critical deadlines and costs have spiraled out of control.

The team all works out of an office in Maryland. They are:

  • John – 43 year old (African-American, born in Bowie, MD)
    Julie – 51 year old (Chinese-American, born in the District of Columbia)
    Jinsoo – 27 year old (Korean, a recent immigrant from Seoul)
    Shahid – 32 year male (Iranian, emigrated to the US when he was six)
    Harpreet – 30 year old female (Indian, emigrated 10 years ago)
    Tom – 63 year old (Caucasian-American, born in Los Angles and recently moved to MD)
  • You as the manager and your personal/professional background are likely to impact leading the team

Shahid and Harpreet joined the team 3 months ago. The rest of the team has been together for 3 years.

The new product is due to be delivered for beta testing six months from now. Today was your first day on the job. You have spent the entire day talking to each team member separately. Here is what you have discovered so far:

Shahid and Tom have been in conflict for several weeks over how to approach the design of a critical piece of the product. John and Julie are so disillusioned that they are job hunting, but each has unique skills that you do not wish to lose. Jinsoo tends to isolate himself when there is conflict, which decreases his productivity. Tom believes that the rest of the team is cutting him out of the picture because of his age and lack of interest in using Google hangouts or docs, to create options for brainstorming. Tom would rather just talk about his ideas. You were also briefed by the general manager, who shared that the former team leader had been fired due to unethical practices such as taking bribes from vendors. However, the team members didn’t know that and really liked the former leader; they are angry that he is gone.

Writing the Plan

Using your new course knowledge of multicultural teams, cultural values, and course content modules, write an action plan to get this team back on track. The plan provides specific steps based on course topics. For a suggested approach to report sections, see “Content Factors” of the Evaluation Rubric below.

Most action plans require the following: overview or introduction; summary of the problem(s); a review of important background (such as cultural factors) goals for the plan, specifics of communication strategy, a schedule, and an overview of your resources/role as team leader.

Unlike most business project reports, please include in-text cites of sources in this assignment. Here’s why: Whenever you write a paper in a course, your task is to show that you understand resource material and that you can apply it to specific situations.In-text citations “signal” that you are continuously reading and thinking about application.
