Essay on BUS 107 Group Job

Abstract:  ​

This research paper discusses three of the barriers in the social perception model,  stereotypes,  first impression error and self­fulfilling prophecies​.  ​

TheВ mainВ objectiveВ isВ toВ explainВ howВ

these barriers impede the ability of employers to judge their employees and possible employees in an appropriate manner​

.  ​

InВ orderВ toВ haveВ anВ effectiveВ workforceВ managersВ shouldВ avoidВ twoВ ofВ theВ barriers, В stereotypesВ andВ firstВ impressionВ errorВ becauseВ theyВ allowВ personalВ feelingsВ andВ beliefsВ toВ getВ inВ theВ wayВ ofВ beingВ ableВ toВ judgeВ employeesВ professionally. В NegativeВ selfВ­fulfillingВ propheciesВ shouldВ beВ avoidedВ altogetherВ andВ insteadВ useВ positiveВ soВ thatВ theyВ helpВ employeesВ becomeВ moreВ efficientВ andВ helpВ boostВ employeeВ moral.

Launch:  ​

Social perception is the process of interpreting information about another person.  (Nelson; Quick,  97.  2012) Perception affects the way in which people understand themselves and their surroundings.  Within the model of social perception there are barriers that can lead to inaccurate thought of others.  There are five barriers in the model,  however our group will be presenting only three of them.  The first barrier is stereotyping,  a generalization about a group of people.  Stereotypes are often inaccurate and harmful to the group of individuals it concerns.  As research has found stereotype and social identity has been an ongoing issue that continues to have a negative impact and suppressing emotions.  These negative impacts not only affect individual work performance,  but also create an effect called the " stereotype threat spillover” which can cause and leave the surrounding work environment in a depleted state.  (​

EmployersВ shouldВ provideВ properВ trainingВ forВ

managersВ toВ reduceВ stereotypingВ inВ theВ workplace. В AsВ managersВ showВ lessВ classificationsВ ofВ stereotyping, В fellowВ employeesВ willВ takeВ noteВ andВ followВ theirВ example. В AnotherВ barrierВ isВ theВ firstВ­impressionВ error, В firstВ impressionsВ holdВ significantВ importanceВ inВ societyВ andВ theВ workplace. В TheyВ areВ tremendouslyВ vitalВ dueВ toВ theВ apparentВ factВ thatВ youВ onlyВ getВ oneВ chanceВ atВ aВ firstВ impression. В Fortunately, В thereВ areВ waysВ individualsВ shouldВ andВ shouldВ notВ presentВ themselvesВ inВ orderВ toВ preventВ

firstВ impressionВ errors. В OneВ exampleВ isВ byВ focusingВ onВ impressionВ management, В whichВ isВ " theВ processВ byВ whichВ individualsВ wantВ toВ controlВ theВ impressionВ othersВ haveВ onВ them” (Nelson, В QuickВ pg. В 103. В 2012). В FirstВ impressionsВ areВ vitalВ inВ workВ environmentsВ and, В moreВ generally, В society. В TheyВ canВ makeВ orВ breakВ individuals, В whichВ isВ whyВ itВ isВ criticalВ forВ potentialВ employeesВ toВ knowВ howВ toВ presentВ themselvesВ inВ orderВ toВ avoidВ theВ potentiallyВ disastrousВ impactВ ofВ firstВ impressionВ errors. В TheВ thirdВ barrierВ isВ selfВ­fulfillingВ prophecy, В alsoВ knownВ asВ theВ PygmalionВ effect, В whichВ occursВ whenВ ourВ expectationsВ affectВ theВ wayВ weВ interactВ withВ otherВ people, В inВ aВ wayВ weВ endВ upВ gettingВ whatВ weВ wishВ for. В ThisВ effectВ hasВ beenВ visibleВ inВ theВ workplaceВ asВ wellВ asВ otherВ fieldsВ likeВ education. В ToВ illustrate, В ifВ managersВ believeВ certainВ employeesВ willВ beВ moreВ successfulВ thanВ others, В theyВ willВ haveВ higherВ expectationsВ forВ thoseВ saidВ employeesВ whichВ willВ ultimatelyВ leadВ toВ theirВ success. В However, В theВ sameВ canВ beВ saidВ aboutВ loweredВ expectationsВ leadingВ toВ badВ workВ performance. В TheseВ barriers, В whenВ appliedВ toВ theВ workplace, В canВ hinderВ theВ abilityВ toВ judgeВ workersВ appropriately, В accuratelyВ andВ effectively. В

Problem Statement​

:  ​

OurВ groupВ aimsВ toВ demonstrateВ theВ problematicВ barriersВ ofВ theВ socialВ perceptionВ modelВ includingВ stereotypes, В firstВ­impressionВ errors, В andВ selfВ­fulfillingВ prophecies. В TheseВ barriersВ canВ negativelyВ affectВ managerВ andВ employeeВ behaviorsВ byВ prejudgingВ potentiallyВ exceptionalВ teammates. В OurВ goalВ isВ toВ contemplateВ waysВ toВ preventВ biasВ decisionВ­makingВ inВ aВ professionalВ workВ environment. В
