Trident week 2
As with all of the assignments for this class, first, make sure to thoroughly review the required background materials. Make sure you fully understand the concepts of the Johari Window as well as Transactional Analysis. You need to have a solid understanding of these important concepts in order to successfully complete this assignment.
We will once again be applying the concepts from this module to your own experiences as a way of finding potential ways to develop your leadership skills. For this assignment, choose a current or former supervisor or subordinate and think carefully about how the concepts from the Johari Window and Transactional Analysis applies to this current or previous supervisor/subordinate relationship. Think carefully about the flow of information and communication between the two of you, and also times when either of you behaved as “adults,” “parents,” or “children” in your dealings with each other. Don’t worry, this assignment will be purely between you and your instructor so feel free to be as honest and self-reflective as you can.
More specifically, write a 4- to 5-page paper answering the following questions below. Make sure to cite at least one of the required readings in each answer, and to cite at least three sources total from the background readings in your paper:
Using a Johari Window analysis, what do you think some of your supervisor’s or subordinate’s blind spots are? What do you think some of your potential blind spots might be?
Also using a Johari Window analysis, what kind of hidden spots did you keep between you and your supervisor or subordinate? Did you suspect your supervisor or subordinate of having hidden spots?
Based on your answers to Questions 1 and 2 above as well as the required readings, how might Johari Window analysis be used to improve this supervisor/subordinate relationship that you wrote about in the above two answers?
Using Transactional Analysis, give some specific examples of when you and your supervisor or subordinate acted like “parents,” “children,” or “adults.” And be honest—we all act like “children” sometimes in the workplace.
Based on your answer to Question 4 and the required readings, how do you think this supervisor/subordinate relationship might have been improved using Transactional Analysis?
For this assignment you will be applying the concepts of the Johari Window and Transactional Analysis to some specific scenarios that you might face if you were a leadership development coach. Of course make sure to thoroughly review the required readings before starting on this assignment.For each of the scenarios below, use at least one reference from the required readings to answer the specific question. Your paper should be two to three pages in length:An employee shows up late for work. The supervisor says “I’m really disappointed in you. This is the fifth time this month you’ve been late for work!” The employee responds “I’m tired of you singling me out! Bob, Carol, and Ted are also late for work sometimes but you never chew them out!” Based on Transactional Analysis, what roles are the supervisor and employee playing?
An employee receives a performance review from the supervisor. The supervisor points out several areas where the employee has performed well and where the employee’s performance needs to be improved. The employee responds, “Thank you so much for the feedback. How would you suggest I go about improving my performance?” Based on Transactional Analysis, what roles are the supervisor and employee playing?
A leadership development coach is brought into a company to try to improve communication between supervisors and subordinates. The coach asks everyone to write down areas where their supervisor or subordinate has a blind spot. Everyone writes down a lot of complaints about areas that they think their supervisor or subordinate is clueless about. The coach shares what everyone wrote with the whole group. A lot of finger-pointing and arguments ensue, with a lot of feelings hurt. What additional steps do you think the coach should have taken based on the Johari Window that might have improved the outcome?

peer review: read and comment
Question: Make sure you read the two posts below and research their item and provide additional information.
Post 1: The three things that I don’t want to live without are my car,
my house, and my bed. A bed and house are two things that give me a lot of
comfort, and as such I wouldn’t want to lose them. For my car, I need it to do
just about anything, as there aren’t great public transport options where I
A major piece of a car is an engine. Without an engine, cars are
virtually useless, and differences between engines have a major impact on how a
car drives. I’ve always been very interested in how engines in cars work, and
as such I found an article from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable
Energy, which gives an understandable breakdown of the major components of a
combustion engine and how they work to create the rotational energy that cars
need to drive. The article says that an internal combustion engine is made up
of two main components, fixed cylinders and moving pistons. The article then
goes on to say “The expanding combustion gases push the piston, which in
turn rotates the crankshaft” (Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable
Energy). After rotating the crankshaft, the engine has done its part, and a
series of gears transfer that rotational energy to the rear axle.

Post 2: Three things I would not want to live without are my water
bottle, my reindeer socks, and air conditioning. My water bottle is
a reusable plastic bottle that holds 74 ounces of water, and I carry it
around like it is my baby. It is also the only reason that I drink more than
two cups of water per day. My reindeer socks are fuzzy brown socks with antlers
and a smiley face embroidered on them. They keep my feet warm and make me happy
when I look at them. Lastly, not wanting to live without air conditioning seems
pretty self explanatory–I do not like being hot!
Air conditioning is a very complex system that revolves around
one basic premise: removing heat and humidity from the air (Carrier). Air
conditioners are able to do this is by pulling in hot air from the indoor
area and running it through a space with refrigerant coils which pulls the
heat and humidity from the air. Then, the now cool air is released back into
the indoor space. Once the refrigerant gets warm from cooling the air, it
turns into a gas and goes to the outdoor portion of the air conditioning
unit where a fan pulls the heat from the refrigerant outside so that the
refrigerant can turn back into a liquid and continue the cycle of cooling and
dehumidifying the area.
