Personal Skills Relating to Management Occupation

Words: 2833 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 14026778

Business Management

Skill Pre-assessment and Analysis Report

The key to successful management is a combination of a variety of skills relating more than just to "how well a person may know his job" but also to how skilled that person may be as a leader, administrator and how well they might get on with people, both around them, and working for them.

While a manager obviously needs to be able to fulfill the supervisory role in a competent manner, motivating his employees is vital in increasing the 'bottom line,' which is deemed as an acceptable measure of success in any management position.

One of my lasting impressions of what it takes to be a good manager comes from reading years ago about various management theories. According to management theorists there are generally two types of leaders that emerge, those that are product orientated, and those that are relationship motivated.

Personal Growth Development and Multiple Intelligences

Words: 643 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 25279074

Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences has yielded an abundance of research. Prior research has focused on multiple intelligences in the educational setting and also in career planning and development. Pearson, O’Brien & Bulsara (2015) contribute to the growing body of literature on multiple intelligences by applying the theory to a counseling or therapeutic setting. The authors predicted that the multiple intelligences training, which takes into account client preferences and cognitive orientations, would improve therapeutic outcomes. Using semi-structured interviews and multiple intelligences training for counselors, the researchers found that applying multiple intelligences to the therapeutic relationship helped to strengthen the therapeutic alliance, and help clients improve confidence and self-efficacy. Also, the multiple intelligences approach led to more solution-focused or positive orientations in the clinical setting.
The Pearson, O’Brien & Bulsara (2015) research underscores the importance of understanding the theory of multiple intelligences, and applying the theory to the clinical setting…… [Read More]

But getting back to my supporter, because there is no chance that we will ever become close friends (she lives quite a distance from me), I feel I can open up to her and never fear her being critical of me. She recommends that I read the first-person stories from others who are recovering from various emotional and mental health problems. So, I have followed her suggestion.

An article in the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal tells the story of Yin Fan, who fell into a "deep depression" and "did not understand what was happening to me" (Fan, 2007). She eventually found out she had a bipolar condition, but meantime she gave thoughts to suicide. She thought about "…jumping of tall buildings or walking out into the ocean and letting the water carry me away" (Fan, 313).

Not celebrating Christmas, and not having time off from school for Persian religious holidays, has always made me take great notice of the fact that I am "different."

Personal Awareness of Cultural Bias in Social and Cultural Diversity

Words: 2763 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 49030133

Cultural bias implies an emphasized distinction or preferential status that indicates a predilection for one culture, over another. It is often discriminative, and is characterized by an absence of integration in a group, in terms of social principles, codes of conduct, and beliefs. Cultural partisanship introduces the accepted behaviors of one group as superior, and more valued, than those of another lesser-respected cultural group. In my surroundings, most of the residents, and hence, patients are white, making us (Afro-Americans and Asians) minorities, feel different if not isolated. Such deferential factors are responsible for establishing where specific individuals live, and what opportunities are available to them, in the healthcare and educational context (Sue et al., 2009)

And finally, in the case of a general manager overseeing a team of technical workers or workers that have more knowledge of the project than him or herself, delegation might be best.

The different combinations of leadership strategies will depend on the type of the organization in question; the relationship of managers to employees; and the objectives of the leadership. In general, I would prefer to be part of a company that emphasized more participatory and delegative approaches. This no doubt comes from the values I was brought up with: I want to work hard and to do a good job, but I like to feel as if I have a hand in orchestrating the success of the enterprise of which I am a part. I believe I have something valuable to contribute to the organization and to me a job is never 'just a job.' Leadership is most effective…… [Read More]

2. What views about the impact of capitalism on adult education activities are represented in the readings?

In "From Training to Education," Kai-Ming explains how adult education became an integral part of manpower planning. In a socialist world, adult education was "not meant to be a second route for individuals' upgrading and upward mobility" (Kai-Ming). An individual's interest did not extend beyond the state's interest and there was "no room for personal mobility beyond the state plans" (Kai-Ming). The influence of the market has caused changes in the system and the way it used to work. Around 1980, the state began to allow private enterprises to become…… [Read More]

Otherwise, it would be completely impossible to hold anybody morally or criminally responsible for anything, even the most horrific crimes. The basis of all modern legal and ethical systems is precisely that we are all capable of making conscious choices and, therefore, we are all responsible for our choices and our behavior. I believe that since we are all capable of making conscious choices, we are, therefore, also completely responsible for our choices and our behavior.

What do you consider to be beautiful and why?

In my opinion, aesthetic beauty is very subjective and almost completely in the eye of the beholder. Personal perspective often suggests beauty where individuals with a different perspective see none at all and vice versa.

Philosophically, I believe that beauty is also capable of being found in other areas outside of the realm of aesthetics. For example, the commitment to the health, welfare, and happiness…… [Read More]

The importance of a healthy diet cannot be stressed enough. One of the main problems that plague our society today is a high percentage of overweight people.

Understanding this potential constraint, and how it may limit the use of vocal expression, Linklater presents a work that aims to help the reader develop their vocal skills.

workshop was fascinating in that it taught me that there are many different ways to salary negotiation.

For instance, the common thought has been to decline from naming a price and stating that you would first like to reflect and discuss it with others; then do online or offline research in your chosen field to see average salary in your field. However, recent research seems to indicate, interestingly enough, that settling on a certain price, even as a joke can raise your salary. The researchers, for instance gave the instance of an applicant who joked that she would like to earn a million dollars. The interviewer raised her salary to $300 as much. Interviewers like to see someone who esteems themselves and their capabilities. It makes them esteem that interviewee more.

Employee Training in a Culturally Diverse Workplace

Workplace training is vitally important for any company -- whether the company has mostly native-born experienced workers or a culturally diverse workforce including recent immigrants. But when it comes to training needs for culturally diverse employees there are strategies that should be applied and fine-tuned, and this paper addresses those strategies and tactics. Thesis: Old training models -- used by HR departments and in business colleges -- that are linear and simplistic should be considered outdated and irrelevant.

Theoretical Orientation

My personal orientation lies in Gestalt (Fritz Perls), Person Centered (Carl Rogers) and Reality Therapy (William Glasser) psychotherapy.

What do you see as the time frame of counseling? Are you more oriented to the past, present, or future?

I am oriented to present; however, I believe that many problems can come from the past. Therefore, the past must be discussed at some point.

To take this a step further, do you believe counseling is intended to work on current issues and feelings or to help people with issues and feelings from the past? Or, do you believe that people need to focus on their future feelings, thoughts and behaviors.

I believe people should focus on their current issues first. However, every individual are different. Therefore, therapy should be aim at individuals' need.

Challenging markets can also be a drive of growth, as fewer people will attempt to manage their own finances.

With this much growth in the industry, it can be relative easy to find a job, if one is qualified. The qualification process is challenging, and acts as a barrier to entry. This bodes well for anybody with the relevant formal education and industry qualifications. If you have access to money (rich family who will invest with you, for example), your career path will be smoother. Most major financial institutions will advertise for entry-level positions in the industry. It should not be hard to identify opportunities in such a growing industry. The OOH states that there is going to be competition for new job openings because of the desirability of the career -- only the formal barriers should limit this somewhat.

Physical Therapy - Personal Characteristics and Motivating Factors

Pursuing Physical Therapy as a Career: Personal Characteristics and Motivating Factors

There are many reasons why people pursue specific career fields. Some individuals engage in a particular career for the money, and others do it because they are interested in helping people or they find some other value in what they are doing. If a career is not rewarding in some way, it can be difficult to continue that career. Instead, people in this situation will often move on to a career that they find much more valuable to them, personally, or to society as a whole. I chose to pursue physical therapy as a career for several reasons, some of which are directly related to my own, personal motivations and some of which are more closely related to the value that my work may bring to others.

Resiliency: The single most important area of training for modern military leadership?

The military life is invariably a stressful one and service in the modern military brings unique psychological and physical stresses to troops. According to Bartone & Armstrong (2009), the most important character that must be fostered in contemporary training is that of resilience. "Research over the past 25 years has confirmed that psychological hardiness is a key stress-resilience factor. People who show high levels of psychological hardiness exhibit greater commitment (the abiding sense that life is meaningful and worth living), control (the belief that one chooses and influences his or her own future), and acceptance of challenge (a perspective on change in life as something that is interesting and valuable)."[footnoteRef:1] Of course, technical competency is required and soldiers must be physically fit to withstand the rigors of combat.…… [Read More]

Description of Concrete Experience: I chose to have gastric bypass surgery because I was dealing with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes due to my weight. Over time, my weight had just continued to creep up until it reached a point that made it really dangerous for me. Additionally, back pain, knee pain, and joint pain were always present, and it hurt to walk and move around, so daily life activities were difficult to handle. I got out of breath when walking even short distances, and with that and the joint pain, exercising to lose weight was really not possible for me anymore. Even though I used to exercise, it was not something I could go back to until some of the weight was gone and the stress on my joints was lessened.…… [Read More]

Personal Philosophy of Education

Education is the process of establishing a solid, long-term foundation for the future of society through the development, training and teaching of the children by guiding them into professional young adults. Education is literally creating and forming this country. Many people look at the teaching profession as a low paying, non-thankful job.

The visibility of a teacher's success is not only watching the children cite the ABC's or seeing their faces light up when they discover that 2 + 2 = 4.

The success of a teacher is also obvious on graduation night, and those graduates entering into the work place, landing that first high paying job, and succeeding at it. The results of the teaching profession is also transparent when inventions are created, such as the Internet, computers, advanced communications etc...

Personal Narrative: Hobbies

Everyone has one or two favorite photos of themselves, family members, or special occasions that they like to treasure. But for me, photography is more than a way of preserving memories. It is an art form. I love to take photographs that do more than simply capture a moment in time. A good photograph can reveal something about the subject’s character that they may not even have known existed. Or it can show a different view of something very ordinary that changes the gazer’s perspective on life. Although I do not have any formal artistic training, I love how the simple technology of an iPhone camera can give me a different voice in the form of being able to create permanent visual images of the world I see.

Athletic Training

Whether to win marathons or to make it to the state football championships, all athletes need some form of training. Lately, increased focus has been placed on the specific importance of weight, or strength, training for the overall conditioning of a casual or professional athlete. The terms "weight training" and "strength training" are technically different, but often the two terms are often used interchangeably. Typically, weight training implies the use of materials such as barbells, dumbbells, and specialized machines, whereas strength training also employs isometric or callisthenic exercises like push-ups and sit-ups. An athletic conditioning regime will generally incorporate aspects of both weight and strength training and therefore the terms can be easily used interchangeably. Much physiological research has focused on the efficacy of weight training on the performance and physical conditioning of athletes.

Future Issues That Will Impact Employee Training

Applying knowledge gained in the course

The emerging trends in workforce demography of any organizations are fundamental to determining the future of employee training. Hiring and training of employees significantly determines the success and future progress of any organization (Bradley, 2011). There is a difference between hiring and training processes. While an employer may hire qualified workers, it is not what the curriculum vitae is written which makes them produce results, but rather the kind of training and skills they have. A person may be good in passing tests, but when it gets to actual work, they cannot produce results. Therefore, in this line of thinking, the human resource department of every organization should set its concentration on the trends of employee training if better results are expected.

Employee training is a significant factor in management of an organization. Newly hired employees need…… [Read More]

The Leader is interested in aligning the beliefs and values of people with the overall goals and vision of the organization. In the Leadership role one can bring about change by providing direction, by setting an example, by motivating through inspiration, and by building teams based on respect and trust.

The Enron scandal sent ricochets through corporate America, causing literally thousands of people to lose their jobs and sending a major city into a deeper recession than that experienced by the rest of the country. Even seemingly minor corporate scandals have had a tremendous impact on both corporate America and on consumer confidence in corporations. One need only look at the recent media fury surrounding Martha Stewart's recent release from prison to realize that corporate misbehavior is the hot-button issue of the day.

Business Continuity Plans (BCP) and other forms of strategic planning are no longer a luxury, but a must-have factor and an important element of any organisation's risk management system. Organisations are increasingly dependent upon it systems and infrastructure and eventually subjected to many risks, so business is inherently risky.

Similar to the suggestions offered by Gahala (2001), Brody (1995) identified several traits to be considered when developing a comprehensive professional development program. Among those traits include the reputation of the trainer, the rewards available to the participants, both tangible and intangible, and the support of the administration. Traditional staff development models have required everyone to participate at the same time and in the same location creating problems such as scheduling, travel, space, and funding. Bintrim (2002) notes that web-delivered staff development allows teachers to log on and participate at the time of day that is best for them and at the pace they are the most comfortable with.

Burke (1994) concluded that the use of effective distance education programs for K-12 staff development should be increased to supplement face-to-face in-services due to the positive evaluations of K-12 educators who participated in the electronic distance education in-service programs.

5. Recommendations and Rationale on Motivational and Reward Systems

Two features are observed relative to the motivation and reward system at Alliance and Leicester. First of all, the motivational strategies do not include training programs within the incentives offered to the employees, but treat it as a different category. This approach should be addressed in the meaning that training ought to be presented as an incentive, as an opportunity to gain professional knowledge and set the path for future professional formation. In contrast with being offered training as an exclusive means of promoting organizational goals, this new approach would offer the employee a sense of belonging to the organization, being cherished, while also increasing his sense of stability for his future.

The second recommendation refers to increasing the levels of transparency relative to the reward system. Premiums and bonuses are generally scarce at Alliance & Leicester and even when they…… [Read More]

This will be different from one job to the next, as the more critical roles will require additional amounts of training and follow up.
