This assignment will allow you to consider motivation and emotion of employees, along with the accompanying decisions leaders must make.
As CEO of a large organization, you would like to implement Googleâ€™s structure. However, you must seek approval from the board and ensure that employees will be on board with this transition. Before moving forward, you must completely understand the research, so a formal proposal may be written.
