People-Oriented Leadership in 1911 Term Paper

… ).

As noted previously, employees also have to know that their efforts are part of a larger whole made up of a community with other employees who are just as committed. People in the organization who have the same leader share a similar vision and the same outcomes. Leaders need to ensure their separate constituents within the organizations are aligned toward these end goals (Gottschalg & Zollo, 2007). By organizing people toward a shared vision, firms can establish specific management practices toward the attainment of strategic objectives. In addition, people-oriented leaders are not only interested in employees who have healthy working conditions, but whose lifestyle outside of work is just as positive. Csikszentmihalyi (2003) explains that the businesses that affect the quality of people's lives…. [read more]

Wal-Mart

When Sam Walton was franchising a Ben Franklin's variety store in Newport, Ark., in the late 1940's, he had a simple but significant idea. Walton, like most retailers, was always looking for a deal from his suppliers. Normally when a retailer managed to get a bargain from a wholesaler they would leave their store prices unchanged and pocket the extra money. Walton on the other hand realized he could do better by passing on the savings to his customers and earning his profits through large volume. This approach would be the foundation of Walton's business strategy when he opened Wal-Mart in 1962 (Frank, 2006).

His hunt for low prices came naturally to Walton as he was known for being extremely cheap. Cost-cutting was…. [read more]


Character Profile Jazmin Biltmore, the Character MO'Nique Essay

… Character Profile

Jazmin Biltmore, the character Mo'Nique plays in the 2006 film Phat Girlz, has many different stereotypes that she is working against in the movie. The main way in which she identifies herself in the movie is indicative of this fact; she sees herself as -- and is convinced that others see her as -- a fat black woman. There are many misperceptions that she faces as a result of this identity, which would make it difficult for her to receive full and equal treatment from receiving any of the human services that she may require. Women have been marginalized by many -- if not most -- cultures throughout history, which is why it makes up such a major part of her identity and…. [read more]

Music Therapy Term Paper

… Music Therapy

It has long been said that "music soothes the soul." Since humans first walked on the earth, they have used music as a way of gaining inner peace, solitude and pleasure. With voice alone or musical instruments, with friends and family and small groups and large, music has been an important part of human societies throughout the world. Music connects with the inner self. It provokes emotional response, or it reduces it. Hearing a certain melody can bring back a personal feeling or memory. It can even cause a physical reaction, such as a shiver or warmth. It is not surprising, then, that modern-day therapists use music as part of their treatment for social or emotional problems for the youngest child to older…. [read more]

… Hiring new employees is generally an exciting time for any company or manager.

Organization Behavior Competitive Advantage Essay

… b. Control Costs in the Long Run:

Although organizations have to expend a significant amount of budget on the training and skills development of their existing and newly recruited staff, these expenditures can eventually control the heavy costs which they have to incur in the long run. That is, if organizations continue to provide training to their employees on periodical basis, these employees are basically trained to fill the higher management positions in the future. In this way, organizations can save the money which is expended on the training of new employees at the Top Management positions by promoting their existing employees to those positions. The huge expenditures which organizations incur on the training of their higher level officials put heavy financial burden on their…. [read more]

AVON Calls on Foreign Markets Essay

… As is evident in the first sections of the case, Avon lacks a galvanizing strategy that can unify the entire organization to a common strategic marketing plan. Fragmentation of the new product development process, market planning, market strategy, sales and distribution are evident in the first sections of the case. It is also clearly a chaotic situation and one, if left unchecked, will proliferate and lead to a complete lack of governance. With no governance in place, Avon will find creating even the most simplistic process a challenge.

The warning signs of what Avon will be like in an increasingly deteriorating level of governance are evident in the case. The core areas of new product development, procurement, supply chain management are out of synchronization with…. [read more]

… Neutrality Not Swiss

What is happening essentially, or the moral of the story one might say, is that what was once an open and free system that promoted a greater exchange of information, is something that is now becoming a walled system. Pariser points out that the Internet actually hides information. Hiding, secrecy and censoring is more like socialism than it is a democratic system. As the Economist points out in many of its pieces, and as in one article quoted, "The Web is Dead" as Wired magazine quoted recently' although this goes a bit further than many expect the case will go. Although, this may not be such a bad thing, as some customers favor using some products over others. Apple for example, delights…. [read more]


Publix.com Website Analysis Effective New Essay

In addition, the images and graphics that are used on the site do not successfully promote the products and services that are offered by Publix. The last pitfall that the Publix website encounters is its inability to promote itself. While Publix is easily accessed through a simple online search, there are no additional banners or advertisements that help direct a user to the site. It does not offer special promotions, aside from coupons, through its website, nor does it invite customers to interact with the stores through the website. If the store were to offer an enticing….

Quote #1: Dave Kieffer, leader of Mercer Human Resource Consulting: "These are not surveys or perceptual data. These are measures of how people actually behave, how they respond to the rules and rewards of their companies, and whether they flourish, languish, or leave." The underlying idea of this quote is that, while the statistics and the numerical evidence is useful in the assessment of the staff members and in the development and implementation of human resource strategies, it is even more important to understand the people first, rather than the statistics. In a more professional formulation, qualitative analyses are just as important as quantitative analyses in the management of the human resource.

Mind Body Connection With Learning Thesis

… Mind Body Connection w/Learning

This is a template and guideline. Please do not use as a final, turn-in paper.

One only needs to feel the knots in the stomach prior to an important speech, or test, or recital, or just before participating in a crucial sporting event to know that there is indeed a mind-body connection (Woolston, 2009).

This merging of the mind and body creates a holistic connection that is critical for health and wellness... there is significant evidence to suggest that coordinating the interaction between our minds and bodies….

Former Vice President Al Gore, who, in his documentary film on global warming, by director Davis Guggenheim, an Inconvenient Truth (2006), introduces himself, "I am Al Gore, I used to be the next president of the United States," won an Academy Award for the documentary. It is not the first time that a controversial documentary film has won an Academy Award, nor is it the first time that a politician has harnessed the Hollywood public relations mechanism as represented by the film stars like those stars backing Al Gore's documentary, to promote both their ideology and themselves as politicians. Hillary Clinton did it with her book, it Takes a Village (1996), which won a Golden Globe Award, and was the first…. [read more]

Asylums in the 19th Century Term Paper

… Asylums in the 19th Century

Asylums came into existence in response to a growing social problem -- what to do with people who were mentally ill. Of course, they were not called mentally ill in those days but were referred to as victims of lunacy or madness. The perception of madness as an illness came with the rise of psychiatry, and the development of psychiatry as a profession occurred concurrently with the development of asylums. This essay will consider conditions that led to the building of asylums, how asylums were meant to function, and the shift of function that occurred late in the 19th century.

Historians disagree about the efficacy of asylums for the treatment of those who were mentally ill, but all agree that…. [read more]


Pilates and Rehabilitation Term Paper

… Pilates Helps Rehab Work

Pilates has skyrocketed in popularity, especially in the last decade, when compared to its humble beginnings in a studio apartment.

What is the reason behind this immediate rise in the popularity of the findings of Joseph Pilates? "The Ball" plays a huge role, without a doubt. For decades, Pilates trainers have known the stability ball is an effective complement to their techniques of body training. "Balance on the Ball. Exercises Inspired by the Teachings of Joseph Pilates," by Elisabeth Crawford is a new text, for instance, that combines the principles of Pilates with core training on the stability ball.
