Career Management Plan Jim Martin

In Eric Borden's case, his knowledge of the industry and of the developments that occur on this segment recommends him either for the research and development department or for marketing, since he would be able to ensure that the marketing strategy that the company has is in line with what occurs on the markets. From that perspective, his salary structure could be changed so as to ensure that he receive an increased base salary rather than the sales bonus program he receives now.

In the case of Ving Hsu, his financial package needs to be adjusted, because he currently works as a sales representative, but receives only the base salary, although he is eligible for the sales bonus. However, it seems that much of his activity is focused on training his customers on how to use the products rather than on increasing his volume of sales. A more relevant measure…… [Read More]

It is my desire to be one of these leaders, and the case method of instruction at Harvard Business School is instrumental in bringing my leadership capabilities to this level of potential.

Both ESSEC, the graduate business school I attended most recently, and Dauphine University, at which I obtained my real estate Master's degree, are located in France; my employment, despite being for large international firms, has also kept me in my native country. Though I am fully aware of the benefits of a European perspective and position and have a definite appreciation for my cultural heritage and the diversity that France is home to, I am also aware of the limitations that such a singular perspective brings to business leadership potentials and capabilities in our time. Through my many travel experiences, including several to the United States and a month-long journey through some the most undeveloped parts of Mali,…… [Read More]

"Why a company should hire you as a personnel, operations, deployment manager."

I believe that I would be an excellent candidate for a deployment manager because of my extraordinary combination of experience, education, and acumen. I have been exposed to a variety of high-pressure situations and have always handled myself in a diligent and professional manner. I have experience as a program integrator and deployment manager, a deployment readiness officer and logistical coordinator, a central issue manager, and a deployment mission manger. All of these positions have provided an environment in which I have been able to fine tune many of the skills that are needed to fulfill a personnel, operations, and deployment manager.

I attribute much of the success that I have so far achieved in my career to my self-motivation and military professionalism. The military taught me a lot about maintaining a professional composure through some…… [Read More]

Career Management: Wal-Mart Overview

Aspects of Career Counceling

Words: 3684 Length: 11 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 28362643

Career counseling is not limited to a particular trade or skill or type of people but includes a wide range of individuals who possess all kinds of skills, passions, and values as well as career motivations. In this paper, we investigate the practical applicability of Super's Developmental Self-Concept Theory-based model for career counseling. This theory or model of counseling encompasses the entire lifespan of an individual and divides it into a number of segments. This paper tries to understand how each of the stages identifies the needs and aspirations of individual clients and sets a benchmark that best suits the needs in every stage. This theory is based on self-concept and hence is applicable at an individual level. The paper also looks into the possible assessment tests for career counseling. Such tests are based on personality or psychology of a client, the interest of that individual and the aptitude of…… [Read More]

Career Information

Finding the most appropriate and up-to-date information about a specific career could be a tedious process. Luckily though, there are numerous sources of career information an individual could rely. In this text, I analyze three occupational information sources.

O*NET esource Center (http://www.onetcenter.org)

In brief, O*NET describes itself as "the nation's primary source of occupational information" (O*NET, 2014). As the organization further points out on its Website, its database comprises of hundreds of descriptors that are both standardized and occupation-specific. One key advantage of this particular source of occupational info is the fact that its database is continually updated so as to keep up with trends and changes in the job market. The said update is done through "surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation" (O*NET, 2014). Yet another key benefit of this source of occupational info is its huge database of occupational definitions. It should, however,…… [Read More]

Those who have a more professional work, like a doctor or a lawyer tend to have a higher position in the society as compared with a carpenter or a waiter. A 5 occupational class scheme was discussed: 1st class is the upper level managers and professionals, 2nd class would be the medium level managers and professionals, 3rd class are the lower level office and service workers, 4th class are the skilled manual workers, and lastly, the 5th class is the unskilled manual workers. (ohnson, 2004) Therefore, social class can delineate a person's occupation and therefore characterize his/her experience of work.

Another factor that may affect a person's work life is disabilities acquired, for example, physical disabilities. A person may have one kind of disability or another. he/she may have lost an arm or a leg, he/she may have loss the ability to see, hear or speak. These unfortunate events also…… [Read More]

The "Dutch Test for Conflict-Handling," indentified my personality to have medium 'yielding' conflict style. This is consistent with my articulated belief that agreeability when handling conflicts is required, but not to the point that ethics are ignored. My test results on the "Big Five Personality" test thus support the notion that when handling ethical conflicts solving problems on a personal level and achieving a mutually beneficial solution is ideal. The need to do this in the financial industry today is evident in how many banks must renegotiate mortgages -- no one wants a foreclosure, as this benefits neither the home owner or the bank. Rather, resetting an interest rate so the home owner can stay in the homes but still make payments is the best solution, and this requires a compromise on both sides, ideally without a settlement in court.

For this reason, contract specialists do not need as rigid a background as, say, a neurologist does. A contract specialist usually develops his or her skills for the job while working for a large organization that engages suppliers in major contractual agreements. Devotion to an organization may precede the decision to become a contract specialist. or, a business student might decide that the communication-oriented nature of contract specialization suits his or her personality. Another person might find that while standard legal careers were disappointing, a career in contract specialization helps bridge the gap between the law, business, and the public sector in ways other occupations cannot possibly do.

Where I Am Now

Second, a major benefit for many computer programmers is the option of working on a variety of very interesting and challenging projects. Often the projects require months off planning, programming and continual work to get the applications to performing at their highest possible performance levels. Third, many companies now sponsor in-house training and development seminars, with a few even having local universities come in and teach the latest techniques on programming. This is a major time-saver for programmers as it gets them more knowledge to do their jobs, and also make them more valuable in their careers for the long-term. Fourth, programming is a profession that lends itself well to individual achievement and accomplishment. For those programmers who are exceptionally good at their work, they become well-known in their fields and often get promoted. Companies also provide many conveniences to programmers to alleviate time drains on them. Google for example…… [Read More]

I am particularly interested in the students who have challenges, either educationally or behaviorally.

Another example of a company thinking in advance of a possible skills gap is Southwest Airlines. This offers internships to elected students who are provided on-the-job training. Thus, if the company finds itself at a loss in terms of skills, it can anytime resort to the fresh new trainees (http://www.southwest.com/careers/interns/intern.html).

5. Employee Relations Program

An employee relation program should be made up of several major components like: rules that must be obeyed at the workplace (no smoking, attention paid to vocabulary, no discrimination), recognition (e.g. Southwest Airlines designates an employee as Star of the Month for best luggage handling or for the lowest number of complaints (http://www.southwest.com/careers/stars/stars.html),the procedure for solving potential conflicts, an assistance program providing advice on both professional and personal matters, work-life balance (implying holidays, maternity and paternity leaves), a participative management style which makes each employee feel he/she is part of a team (http://www.cipd.co.uk/subjects/wrkgtime/wrktmewrklfbal/worklifeba.htm?IsSrchRes=1).

First, a little bit about myself. I am a qualified electrical mechanic and I am currently working as an Electrical Maintainer for J&P Richardson Industries in Wacol, Qld.

Perhaps the most compelling finding in the study by Kotey & Folker is that which denotes that in early growth stages, family firms will actually tend to demonstrate a greater formality in training approaches than will nonfamily firms. Ultimately though, the research finds that size is a major driver of how training strategies are designed. This supports the notion that training must largely be constructed with the specific characteristics of the hiring organization as the foremost determinant.

A good training process will not only offer education and instruction on performing in one's responsibilities and working within company procedural norms, but it should also help to demonstrate the value system of the company, to convey its ethical priorities, to induce a sense of belonging within its culture and to reinforce a consistency of company identity. This means that certain company characteristics must be captured through the training process in addition to…… [Read More]

Gushue, Clarke, Pantzer, et al., (2006) examine the application of social cognitive theories to career counseling, reporting that self-efficacy is a pertinent issue in this process. In particular, these authors report that:

Career decision making self-efficacy refers to the degree to which individuals feel confident in their ability to successfully engage in tasks associated with making a career choice and with commitment to a career. It has also been observed that career-related self-efficacy in general may prove to be an important element in formulating a model of career development...(p. 308).

Gushue and coworkers go on to argue that when career self-efficacy is high, individuals are more assertive in the career counseling process. Thus, by developing career self-efficacy, career counselors can effectively improve interactions with clients and facilitate a greater understanding of client needs with respect to career decision making.

Applying this to the larger context of social learning theory, it…… [Read More]

Training and Development

Training can play an important role in organizational development. Organizational development is understood to be a "planned, organization wide effort to increase organizational effectiveness" (ODN, 2014). Training naturally plays a critical role in this process. De Silva (1997) defines training as "transferring information and knowledge" and equipping employees to put this knowledge into practice. Training therefore is a means of increasing the organization's total knowledge in order to increase its capabilities.

For a training program to be effective in improving organizational development, it needs to be focused on specific objectives that pertain to the organization's overall mission. By creating an alignment between the needs of the organization, through a skills assessment for example, a training program can be developed to increase the organization's capabilities in areas that are the most important. Knowledge and capability are of course only part of the equation -- by increasing organizational knowledge the potential…… [Read More]

How Does Training and Development Improve Employee Job Satisfaction, Increase Moral and Increase Retention?

Executive Overview

Employee training and development is generally thought of in terms of employees learning or requiring new skills of some kind to serve more of a functional need. Training and devolvement can be instituted in an ongoing formalized process or can also be in response to an organizational change. Although training and development has direct implications for an employee's skillset and role in the organization, it can also affect employees in a number of other ways. For example, the literature indicates that training and development can also make beneficial contributions to factors such as job satisfaction, morale, and employee retention. The interactions between such factors are not as clear and there are undoubtedly mediating factors that are inherent in this relationship. This analysis will attempt to provide insight as to the relationship between…… [Read More]

Words: 531 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 44906828

Reintegrating job design and career theory: Creating not just good jobs but smart jobs explores the relationship between how a job is designed and its effect on a person's overall career development. This is accomplished by discussing Career Theory and its relationship to Job Design, but also by reversing the thought process and exploring the relationship between Job Design and Career Theory. Finally the authors use their research and recommend a course of action: the creation of jobs that are both designed to provide personal fulfillment but also aid in the development of a long-term career.

The authors begin the article with a review of the relevant research that has already been conducted on the subject with a view towards how the fields of Job Design and Career Theory came to be. They also discuss the relationship between the terms "job" and "career;" how both relate to a person's work…… [Read More]

Staff Performance Development Reviews

Staff Performance Development Reviews

Performance reviews became necessary as soon as the first worker was employed. For good or bad, performance reviews are an absolutely essential part of the workplace; properly administered, such reviews have been shown time and again to be enormously positive and motivating forces in employees' lives by helping them identify their strengths and weaknesses and by encouraging them to achieve even greater successes -- and avoid comparable failures -- in the future. Improperly administered though, performance reviews can be the source of an enormous amount of controversy and friction within an organization; improperly administered performance review programs can also result in legal action against the employer. Taken together, it quickly becomes clear that providing workers with timely and accurate feedback concerning their performance is a vitally important function within almost any organization, but many managers are either unable or unwilling to provide such reviews for a…… [Read More]

Five-Year Skills Development Plan The Modern Working

Words: 1340 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 73360016

Five-Year Skills Development Plan:

The modern working environment is characterized by limitless employment opportunities and minimal worker loyalty. As a result, today's workplace is an environment where organizations need employees more than employees' need for the business. The emergence of this difficult working environment has contributed to several challenges to both employers and businesses. Some of the major challenges employers encounter includes difficulties in finding skilled workers and the need for more employee motivation in order to promote workers' loyalty. The need for increased motivation in the workplace is associated with the need for businesses to recruit and retain skilled workers. Therefore, the major challenge in the modern workplace revolves around employee motivation due to its role in retaining good employees and managers.

Essentially, given the extent and complexity that modernity has brought societal problems to the forefront of our attention, there is a real potential for the medical professional to be actively involved in the process of alleviating oppression and injustice on any number of fronts. Within personal development, the medical professional has the opportunity to touch a number of people on a daily basis, and through their own ability to mitigate, engender trust, advocate alternative and more permissive opinions, and act as an example of social change. A medical professional can offer social change through pro-bono work, particularly those who come from less than pristine backgrounds who have the ability to also show and act as an example. However, one of the finest ways of enacting social change is to change one's own paradigm so that rather than speaking about a way to live and interact with humanity, the medical professional…… [Read More]

Identity Development Is a Topic That Has

Identity development is a topic that has been studied for some time. There are two main ways to address it: as young children who are just developing an identity and as adults who are changing or developing an identity they never created or did not like as a child. Each person, as he or she grows, develops a distinct and separate identity from other people (Willemsen & Waterman, 1991). While an individual may change over time, there is a part of that person's identity that generally remains the same as it was when it was first developed. The creation of an identity helps to define a person to others, but it also works to define an individual to himself or herself. Everyone has likely heard people say that they need to "find themselves," and that is part of the development and exploration of identity. The identity of a person can…… [Read More]

Apparently, the rise in the demands pertaining to the particpation of the employees and the industrial democracy has also distorted the professional environment. Such all complains were lately resolved and answered through the unique approach of the organization, the organization has understood the significance of the employees, and had realized that their performance is not based upon their professional capabilities, but rather it is the function of the mental capability of the employee related to the friendly and conducive environment offered to the employees occasionally.

This approach to preventing the development of an unfair burden that might otherwise result from adding to the workload. Of participants requires non-participants to relieve an appropriate amount of participants' conventional workload.

More particularly, this proposal recommends reducing the number of direct reports assigned to participating mentors and adding them to the number of reporting personnel supervised directly by non-participating upper-level employees. In principle, the idea is simply to reduce the workload of supervisory-level employees who choose to participate in the mentoring program as mentors as necessary to maintain their productivity and avoid resentment on their part. The corresponding consequences of non-participation by prospective mentors provides a natural incentive to choose to participate in the program to avoid the alternative increase in conventional professional responsibilities.

Personalized Manager-Development Plan In Today's Global Society

Words: 885 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 83707887

Personalized Manager-Development Plan:

In today's global society, management plays a crucial role in controlling the inter-dependence of the relationship between businesses and the society. The management of this interdependence is increasingly important for managers in today's corporations, public administration, and organizations. Preparations to be effective as a manager would require management education that provides knowledge regarding management principles and functions. In light of the increased globalization in today's society, the most important skills a manager should possess include strategic thinking, emotional intelligence, collaboration, critical thinking, communication, motivation, feedback, and coaching. Moreover, managers' perspective of the world should be as a group of national marketplaces as well as knowledge, competence, and information hub (Churchwell, 2003). To improve these skills, I will undergo formal training in a university while consulting management journals and articles for more information.

Tyrell (2014) believes student affairs professionals have a continually expanding and evolving role in community colleges, with recognition of increasingly complex student experiences and with broadening of community colleges' role in the way students are engaged outside of and within formal, institutional settings.

The student affairs domain is an extensive and complex part of college campus operations, covering several departments and involving professionals hailing from a broad range of academic backgrounds. Student learning does not occur only in classrooms; rather, it is interwoven all through students' experiences in college, right from their freshmen days to the time they leave its doors after earning their college diploma. College students are molded by these experiences, conflict management lessons learnt from sharing dorms with fellow students, critical thinking skills perfected through challenging coursework, leadership skills attained through leadership…… [Read More]

applying ethics to the career counseling field, as mandated by the Californian State and national organizations.

Numerous legal and ethical aspects need to be taken into account by professionals in the counseling field. Misunderstanding or unawareness of some ethical standard(s) cannot, by itself, help as a form of defense if charged with behaving unethically. Because of the fairly recent emergence of the 'counseling' concept in Nigeria, counselors have insufficient practical experience with regard to the relationship existing between counseling and the law (Bosede, 2010).

The counseling profession is dedicated to enhancing professional and scientific behavior-related knowledge and individuals' understanding of self and other individuals. It is also devoted to applying this knowledge towards proving individuals', societies' and organizations' conditions. Counselors safeguard and respect human and civil rights as well as the central significance of the freedom of expression and enquiry when it comes to research, publication, and teaching. For instance,…… [Read More]

Therapist Awareness and Professional Development

Duncan (2010) points out, therapists often neglect to pay attention to their own growth and personal changes during the process of working with clients over the course of a career. Focusing on our clients is of course the center point of our work. However, we can be far more effective as therapists when we are aware of what is going on inside of us. Awareness can lead to insights regarding how we can be of better service to our clients, while also preventing problems for ourselves such as burnout.

Specific methods of tracking personal development, which have also been empirically tested, include the various types of feedback mechanisms, the Healing Involvement model, and also the process of cumulative career development (CCD), all of which reveal concrete ways of improving therapeutic outcomes (Duncan, 2010, Chapter 4).

Leadership and otational Development Program for Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA)

Leadership development and rotational programs are crucial for building the potential, skills, and capabilities of new and existing employees. They provide employees with ongoing mentorship, in-depth experiences, as well as training across various functions within the organisation (Columbia University Centre for Career Education, 2016). Organisations rely on these programs to recruit and develop individuals for leadership responsibilities. This paper provides important guidelines for the design of a leadership development and rotational program for the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA). The program is aimed at fresh graduates with less than two years working experience.

In summary, we recommend that the IESBA reconsiders the proposals in the Exposure Draft and provides more guidance on safeguards applicable to sole practitioners and small accounting firms to ensure that the benefits of the changes outweigh the costs to SMEs. Under a principle-based approach, there should be safeguards and practical relief for all practitioners rather than rules-based outright prohibitions. The rewrite of this Independence component of the Code is substantially rules-based rather than principles-based. In this regard, we also encourage the IESBA to prioritize the redrafting of the entire Code using a similar drafting convention to that used by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board in its Clarity project" (IESBA Exposure Draft of Sections 290 and 291 of the Code of Ethics on Independence - Proposed Additional equirements in relation to Internal Audit Services, elative Size of Fees and Contingent Fees 2007).

assist the line managers and their employees on the correct approach for the creation of individual development plan (IDP). The document provides a step by step guide, aiming to support both the employee and the supervisor in the process.

Words: 2359 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 52479218

Shortage of staffing in the nursing profession is a crucial situation for the healthcare centers that is needed to be addressed in order to get the desired health related outcomes. The increasing trend of burnout among the nursing professionals is found to be the antecedent of poor compensation practices, poor management, workload, demotivating career paths and inappropriate workplace behavior. The concerned authorities should develop such compensatory and workplace policies that not only retain the existing nursing professionals but also attract the potential candidates for nursing in order to address the future demand and reduce the shortage of staffing.

Designing Organizations

Locate a copy of an organizational chart of your company, division, or department. If you do not have access to an organization chart, you can find examples of organizational charts on the Internet searching on Alta Vista, http://www.altavista.com/, for the term "company organizational charts." What type of organizational structure does the organization currently have? Is the structure functional, geographic, product, network, or a hybrid? Is it mechanistic or organic? How effective is the current structure? Could or should it be more organic? What changes would you make if you were a top executive? Explain why.

future as a manager and leader. The research process is fairly formal, but it is valuable to have this formality because it illustrates that having a process for doing things helps to achieve consistent results. Moreover, when a manager wants to learn something, it is necessary to investigate, to be creative and curious, and to follow ideas and threads. This way, one may find conclusions and facts that were not immediately apparent. Learning about applied research showed me the value in examining my own biases, and the traps that one can fall into when seeking answers to a particular question. As a manager, there will be many problems to solve, and while it is tempting to simply follow assumptions or rules of thumb, that can lead one to make bad decisions. Knowing that there is a process by which information can be acquired and turned into knowledge will help me…… [Read More]

Dynamics of Leadership

Think of a leader that you know. Give examples of how this person influences others using formal authority, expertise, rewards, coercion, and charisma. How do you think people generally respond to these different influence tactics? Explain.

The former Starbucks marketing executive John Moore is a leader who is very interesting to me as he generally works very effectively with the strong personality of Howard Schultz. Moore once said, "Food is something they've been trying to solve for 20 years. The stores are set up as places to brew and serve coffee, and they don't have a back of the house suitable for the prep work and other work that goes into serving high-end pastries like these well." Moore uses his expertise of the retail food industry to exert influence on the trajectory of the company, taking Starbucks in directions that people…… [Read More]

Some commonly used career aptitude tests include the ACT's (formerly American College Testing) EXPLOE testing regimen that examines 8th and 9th grade students' career aptitude using a battery of tests that provide a range of potential occupational choices. According to ACT's promotional material for the EXPLOE test, "This information can help you learn more about careers, clarify your goals, and begin to plan your future -- including your high school courses and, perhaps, a college education" (Your future, 2010, para. 2). Likewise, the EXPLOE handbook for 2009-2010 states, "With thousands of occupations in the work world, where do you begin? Your EXPLOE…… [Read More]

career interest is accounting. Accountancy is the process of evaluating the financial information about business entities to users such as the managers of the shareholders (Elliot, & Elliot, 2004). Accountancy falls into three areas: accounting, bookkeeping, and auditing.

I have also learned that it can be fun in the investigative way if I se it as such. The work conditions are fine -- not too tedious and best of all I can structure them at my convenience.
