Howard chose to shut down the lines of communication by staying away from those workers as much as possible. He did not want to be involved with them if he didn’t have to.

Taking into account the above mentioned justifications, I recommend the following solutions: 1. Howard needs to attend a regularly scheduled on-the- job training course. 2. Howard needs to engage in an interpersonal change program by group counseling. The on the job training will help improve his level of competency. Organizations and individuals alike need to continuously work on their developmental skills. In addition to this they should work on researching new ways to improve themselves as well as the company goals. Involving Howard in such actions are expected to lead him toward becoming a more successful and appreciated employee. Allowing Howard to work on his interpersonal skills will help to better cope with the troubles that he has been experiencing on the job.
