Week 3: Impasse in Personal & Organizational Learning
According to Haldeman & Henke-Cilenti, the abyss that we are afraid of is the end of power. Everyone wants that their power should remain as it is in the organization and they should intact in the same position but as time changes power also got changed and the new person gets the power and the old one has to retire from the same (Mazariego et al. 2021, p.1746). Everyone is afraid of the end of their power if the power end then things change the person can lose many of the rights and the power which they previously have in the organization.
The organization should be prepared for the impasse. The recent event led to the organization at an impasse as due to it no proper decision is made to solve the problem and conflict is taking place in the organization. Due to this the productivity and the growth of the organization are suffering hard and there is no conclusion to the problem.
Though I and my organization prepared for the impasse there are someplace were disruption and conflict arise when the thought did not match. The employee’s negotiation plan is held in the organization and the employees are aware of it. Employees are aware of impasses so they know the right channel to use in case of impasses. The people in the organization who are most likely to be unprepared and had the hardest time are the team leaders and the manager of the organization and they suffer greatly (Martino et al. 2021, p.10).
The discussion question which is likely to be asked to the cohort group inspires thought is related to how they managed to pass this impasses period and what strategies they have applied so that impasses do not have a huge impact on the organization.
