The purpose of this next offering within the anthology series is to share current research from these participating authors, specifically on the topic of business practices for motivation and communication. Our goal is to add to our quest as refractive thinkers, and to ask the question: what is the purpose of the doctoral scholar? In this edition of the award-winning series, we offer many answers for contemplative thought.
Academia and the business world are entwined. Yet, we continue to witness a pronounced disconnect. , ,
This literature review provided many opportunities to interpret and interconnect because of the predominant mention of certain other constructs: communicate successfully; motivate effectively; emotional intelligence as a factor; gender differences in communication; the brain is wired differently in males and females; and engaged employees are high performers. There were other worthy ideas, concepts and theories for consideration found in the literature that could easily be linked to communication and motivation. The significant and obvious relationships that continued to surface were: how we communicate, how we motivate, and what the business implications are as a result of these applied behaviors. We offer a shared-variance model, which captures the common elements of employee engagement and performance—the results of the applied behaviors by gender through communication and motivation.
U.S. federal agencies protect the common welfare of the citizens and visitors to the United States. To fulfill responsibilities, U.S. federal employees must understand the critical nature of performance in governmental operations, particularly in national security agencies. The purpose of the mixed-methods study was to investigate the relationship between supervisor communication and employee performance and morale.
This discussion focuses on two doctoral studies. One researcher explored the effects of stress, stress perceptions, and stress management education on nursing professionals (Gray, 2013). The other researcher explored the strategies, techniques, and coping mechanisms that HRM professionals working in hierarchical organizational cultures used to satisfy the demands of multiple constituents and fulfill the needs and expectations of employees (Gioia, 2013). Gioia and Gray found similarities in both studies that potentially could be applied to many populations of employees and managers. The implementation of effective communication systems and techniques, and related intervention to reduce job-related stress levels and stress perception, are good business practices to motivate and engage employees.
