IDENTIFICATION/DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT ORGANIZATIONAL DESIGN/CULTURE
Attention to Detail
DESCRIPTION OF PRESENT LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT STYLES
According to Gastil (1994), there are three key elements of democratic leadership:
Maximizing participation and involvement of group members
Facilitating group decision-making
The leadership trait(s) leaders in
the organization possess
There are six traits which distinguish successful leaders from others, namely: -
Having an extrovert personality
Being better adjusted than non-leaders
This arises from a high concern for people and a high concern for production. The objectives are to achieve high levels of both performance and job satisfaction by gaining subordinates’ willing commitment to achieving their assigned tasks.
Determine the area or aspect of organization to be improved.
The area to which improvement is continuously expected in this organization will be on the management and leadership style.
Though the current top management has managed to create changes, however, the changes can be considered as incremental.
According to Tupperware CEO, a dozen years of recruiting, educating and empowering women around the world Rick Goings to start businesses selling Tupperware has translated into earnings success.
The company is leveraging a growing female sales force of 2.6 million women in regions like China, India, Indonesia,Malaysia, the CIS, Latin America and South Africa. It is simultaneously benefiting from the growing ranks of working women in developed nations who are buying its products to help their busy, on-the-go lifestyles.
CHALLENGES FACED BY TUPPERWARE
The big challenge will be capturing a sales force, as well as a consumer base that can substantiate the big investment made by the company to enter these new markets.
Creating and launching new products to compete in different segments of the beauty business. This challenge requires a big investment for research, development, and marketing organization to come up with the best product and launch strategy for these products.

The Four Elements of a Vision
The Heart of Tupperware Brands
Prospect: I like your Wonderlier bowls, but I’m just not completely sold on them yet.
Salesperson: What would it take to convince you that our products are the best?
Prospect: Well, do your products keep food fresh longer than say Glad?
Salesperson: Yes, our products are permanent storage containers and are made of higher quality materials.
Prospect: Are they worth my money?
Salesperson: Yes, they will not only preserve your food better, they also preserve it longer, and will help you save money on food waste costs.
Prospect: Great, with four kids, saving money is practically my second full time job!
Prospect: I like your Wonderlier bowls, but aren’t they prone to microwave leeching?
Salesperson: All plastic products are prone to some microwave leeching when temperature conditions are met. However, Tupperware’s Wonderlier bowls are renowned for their abilities to resist microwave leeching and keep your bowls in pristine condition if handled properly.
Prospect: That sounds good, but isn’t that still dangerous?
Salesperson: Microwave leeching is inevitable in plastic products; however, our products are designed to be BPA free in order to prevent cancerous chemicals from seeping into your foods if or when leeching occurs.
Prospect: Well it certainly sounds like your company is doing very well at protecting its customers.
Prospect: I like your products, but I’m allergic to plastic products.
Salesperson: Unfortunately, most of our products are plastic based, and all products have been exposed to the chemicals that compose the plastics in our products. It may be safer for you to use another brand of product.
Prospect: I like the Wonderlier bowls, but they are too expensive to purchase given my current salary.
Salesperson: Yes, they are expensive at $35 for a 3-piece set; however, they come with a lifetime warranty, and we’ll replace them free of charge if they ever stop functioning?
Salesperson: Yes, all Tupperware products come with a lifetime warranty and free replacement upon any product failures.
Request for more information
Prospect: Could you tell me more about the materials in the Wonderlier bowls?
Salesperson: Absolutely, would you like to know about the BPA free qualification, or any other specific information?
Prospect: Yes, these products seem like they would be safe for my children to use, but I need to understand what this means.
Salesperson: Sure, BPA free means that most cancerous chemicals have been eliminated from the materialization process of the Wonderlier bowls. I can also give you a product safety brochure if you’re interested.
Prospect: Well, the Wonderlier bowls sound like they might be a good replacement for my Glad bowls.
Salesperson: Good, I’m glad that you can see the potential that our Wonderlier bowls have to offer. Which would you prefer, the Wonderlier classic 3-pack, or would you prefer to order them piece by piece?
The Assumptive Close
Prospect: The Wonderlier bowls come in the same sizes that I currently buy disposable bowls for at the grocery store.
Salesperson: Great, then I’ll place your order immediately with complimentary 3-day shipping so you can start using your Tupperware Wonderlier bowls immediately.
The Compliment Close
Prospect: I love Tupperware products, but the Wonderlier products are never on sale.
Salesperson: Mrs. Johnson, I know and applaud you on being a very thrifty mother. It’s obvious that you’ve done significant research on our products, and are currently an avid user of our other goods. Honestly, the Wonderlier bowls are our flagship product, and rarely, if ever go on sale. Now is the time to buy, before the prices go up. I suggest that you buy now and employ your thrifty genius to purchase these products as soon as possible.
Salesperson: So you want value, durability, safety, and a guarantee in a storage product?
Prospect: Yes, that’s a pretty accurate statement.
Salesperson: Given the value of Tupperware’s Wonderlier products, and the fact that they are reusable, not disposable, you can easily see the inherit value in such a product for you and your family. Additionally, our BPA free products are a safe choice – you shouldn’t gamble with your family’s health when it comes to food safety. Additionally, our lifetime guarantee means that you only have to purchase our product once, not multiple times, like other storage containers, such as Glad.
Late 1940’s – Brownie Wise a Sales women who was selling household products for Stanley Home Products was hired by Tupperware company.
She introduced the unique “Party Plan” method of marketing.
Year 1948- First home party for Tupperware was conducted.
Improvement made my Brownie Wise-
She removed all Tupperware products from retail outlets and marketed them through the party plan method .
Women were the prime sellers and consumers for the company.
This can be defined as a high concern for production but a low concern for people. The objective is to achieve high productivity by planning, organizing and directing work in such a way that human considerations are kept to a minimum.
