Businesses of all shapes, sizes, and industries implement
chains of command to keep their operations flowing smoothly and efficiently.
Whatever career path students decide to pursue, they will need to know how to
work within a chain of command. In this LAP, students will discover the
personal benefits of following the chain of command, as well as concrete steps
for working within a hierarchical system. In the Gray Zone, students will be
confronted with a situation in which personal relationships made following the
chain of command a bit tricky.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about following the chain of command, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 15 slides.
"The Gray Zone presents a common problem for many of my students and a good opportunity to discuss the topic without pointing fingers."
