My role as a preceptor is to ensure that Tom achieved the standards and competencies required in his new position, to act as a role model to him and facilitate him to gain knowledge and skills (Gopee 2008).
In review of the various recommended best practices in Training of professional writers, there is a strong emphasis at present in personalisation. Even group experiential trainers note that a core priority in the training of clients is to prompt growth, hence tapping into potential talents and skill which lay dormant beneath the surface of every individual (Colley 2003, Gibbs 1988, and Gopee 2008).
In every conflict within the workplace, there is an ethical solution. However, perhaps the biggest challenge for managers is the effect that decisions can make not only on the bottom line or the team, but in regard to their own reputation. Indeed, one critical mistake or mismanagement of a situation, and especially in response to team conflict where decision making is connected to the livelihood of others, can lead to the dissolution of an entire professional history, or at least temporarily so. According to Thill and Bove's (2005) Excellence in Business Communications, gauging the mind-set of the people whom you work with is half the battle in resolving team conflict constructively. Mere assertion of authority is generally not enough to resolve destructive behaviors regarding a decision. In fact, as Thill & Bove argue, win-win strategies require managers to 1) express understanding; 2) make people aware of their resistance; 3) evaluate others' objections fairly; and 4) hold their own arguments until the other people are ready for them. Patience is not always easy in these situations, as managers may become side-tracked from thoroughly grappling with fundamental problems taking place within team dynamics, and in doing so, ethical and precise responses to challenges may go unmet, reduce morale, productivity or even cause a legal detriment to the organization.
The Formative Assessment is an activity directed at iterative training; directed at interning future RN staff, as well as provision of mentorship by existing staff in the field. Mentoree, Tom's enthusiasm leads him to self directed in situations where he is not yet trained, is in fact, a self-proscribed role that often emerges through the training process, as the trainee is grappling with new information. Ultimately, it is a good indicator of a natural professional, whom is confident and willing to proceed with the level of competence necessary to perform in the outcome.
As a Mentor, it is incumbent to ask oneself the question: why a particular person emerges as a 'natural' leader in a setting From a perspective of mass psychology, the capacity of an individual to mark their territory as 'leader' is oft dependent upon group consensus - what that denotation means, however will vary according to situation. In some cases, overt confidence is based upon lip service by the perception of other professionals in the setting whom gauge the trainee according to loosely defined interpretations, based on conversation and appearance; hence the emergent professional fulfills their vision
