You have just attended a manager’s meeting about establishing self-directed, high-performing teams. The company is concerned because some of the managers are having success building self-directed, high-performing teams while others are not. A discussion occurred that identified the characteristics of the successful team-building elements and compared them to those of the managers who have not been successful. This is a situation where those who are struggling need to learn from those who are doing well. The discussions included identifying what could be going wrong and what steps might be taken for success.
You have been asked to write a research report that summarizes the meeting and offers some recommendations that might be helpful to those managers who are struggling. Specifically, your report must include the following:
Identification of the difficulties the managers may be having in establishing self-directed, high-performing teams
Identification of the successful characteristic of establishing self-directed, high-performing teams
Recommendations for success

In 2017, DOT launched a video entitled “Sights” that featured M. Uchimura, a Japanese retiree in different destinations in the Philippines (available online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3xeB4-qv8I). At the end of the video, it was revealed he was not only a retiree, but also a blind man. It was met with criticism online leading to DOT pulling out the commercial following claims around social media that it was strikingly similar to a South African tourism ad (Rappler.com, 2017). However, during the earlier stages of the campaign, only images with older adults as subjects were produced from the campaign and did not necessarily aim to attract older adults to retire in the country. Nevertheless, these photographs contribute to the images and perceptions of the Philippines as a retirement destination. 3. Theoretical Framework Like DOT, many destination marketing or management organizations (DMOs) use photographs to represent and promote destinations and attractions. Photographs play a crucial role in promoting destinations as they set expectations of quality and experience (Garrod, 2009). Images that are portrayed and actual experience could determine tourist satisfaction and possibilities of recommending to others and returning back (Britton, 1979; Fakeye & Crompton, 1991; Garrod, 2009; Tuohino & Pitkänen, 2004). Choosing images to represent destinations and projecting how they will be received and perceived prove to be a difficult endeavor for researchers and DMOs alike owing to multiple social realities and even more complex feedback loops among multiple senders and receivers (Blichfeldt, 2018; Crick, 1985; Garrod, 2009; Hunter, 2008; Jenkins, 2003). In the advent of social media, actors and stakeholders are better able to communicate to and with amongst themselves, producing complex interactions than ever before that stimulate experiences, images, a>GET ANSWER
