I'm looking for examples of positive and negative communication experiences in the workplace...
I'm writing an exam for an introductory class on organizational communication. I would like to present students with questions that give scenarios or examples of communication problems, issues, or successes in the workplace, and then ask them to apply the concepts we have discussed in class (instead of just having them define a bunch of terms). There are a lot of examples in our textbook, but I'd like to bring fresh material to the exam so that they're forced to think instead of just memorize. I'm looking for a wide range of experiences, for example, problems adjusting to the culture of an organization, examples of really beneficial or really negative uses of communication technologies, problems communicating with superiors or with other departments, etc. Basically things that stand out in your experience as having either a negative or positive effect on your workplace and/or job. No identifying information is needed, but general descriptors might help (i.e. manager at international software company, etc.).
