Climate of Silence EASY!

Assume you have successfully managed one of the plants of your company over a period of five years. You built a climate of openness and trust in your plant and have a longstanding history of honesty, dialogue, and teamwork. Based on your record of success, you have just been transferred to a much larger but less successful plant. The plant has a history of union-management conflict, and the last plant manager had to be hospitalized due to stress. Discuss ways in which you can overcome the “climate of silence” at the plant you have just been transferred to. Write a three-page paper and submit it to your instructor. Consider what steps you would take to improve the union/management relationship? Are there ways that each and every employee can overcome the “climate of silence”? Provide some examples.
