A memorandum, more commonly known as a memo, is a short message or record used for internal communication in a business. Once the primary form of internal written communication, memorandums have declined in use since the introduction of email and other forms of electronic messaging; however, being able to write clear memos certainly can serve you well in writing internal business emails, as they often serve the same purpose.
Quality performance in the team job is one of the most important criteria for successful working in a big company. That is why we need to take into consideration three main factors, which influence the team job and reveal the ability to supervise a group: contributing, listening, and facilitating the group problem-solving. Concerning the first aspect, Kyle Houston has scored 2,83 out of 3 points. He generates ideas, improves skills, and keeps discipline managing with all deadlines and team meetings. This trait is perfect for any leader. Supervisor has to be an example of confidence, creativity, and discipline; otherwise, all team members will allow themselves to be unorganized, lax, and inert. Meanwhile, the true leader is responsible for the team quality and improvement changes if the situation requires.
However, being a good contributor does not mean the ability to acknowledge and evaluate the other people’s contribution. Listening skills of Kyle were assessed in 1,96 out of 3. It is his weak side. It means he prefers talking himself rather than summarizing or clarifying someone’s ideas; moreover, he is not always able to limit discussion to the main point, it may cause distraction and inefficiency of the group conversation and decisions. It may lead to situations when the team members will be afraid of sharing their opinion or will not see a reason to do it as their opinion will be not valuable. Listening skills influence facilitation of the group problem solving, which Kyle performs on the middle level, 2,18 out of 3. If he works on his sensitivity to other people’s opinion and is rational while judging them, he will be a good supervisor. It is a quality he should practice, and supervisor’s position will give him this opportunity. As he has been working in the company for half year only, it is obvious that he develops rapidly. I would suggest sending him on short training for supervisors so as to improve his skills. However, his performance in general is close to high level so I would recommend giving him a chance for promotion.
