Organizational Behavior

1. On reading the news about accession of China to WTO, your organization, an internationally well-known name in manufacturing of bicycles, who had just two years ago started operations in India, decided to relocate its manufacturing base to China, while retaining other service and corporate support in India. Discuss what should be the likely structure of your organization. (To help you understand the bicycle manufacturing and support services of the company, a brief outline of the product and process oriented activities is given below).

2. Explain the logic behind your suggested structure. What advantage can be reaped out of this move? What are the likely problems your organization may encounter in such a move? 3. Where did things go wrong? 4. Who is responsible for this episode? Is Mr. Jain to be blamed? 5. Should the training manager have conceded to his demand for appropriate placement? 6. Study this case carefully. In India we have two major Korean consumer electronics conglomerates. While both the companies have achieved tremendous market growth, they have started encountering the problem of losing their key people. Track such reasons to the typical Korean culture and suggest how such Korean companies can best adopt the theory Z model. 7. Read the case and suggest as an organizational behavior professional, what type of managerial interventions can ease the problem of customer service in a competitive, technology-intensive market? 8. Related the TQM concept in this case with customer retention.

Self Awareness

...conceptualizations of consciousness as the repeated self-identification of oneself, through which moral responsibility could be attributed to the subject—and therefore punishment and guiltiness justified, as critics such as Nietzschewould point out, affirming "...the psychology of conscience is not 'the voice of God in man'; it is the instinct of cruelty ... expressed, for the first time, as one of the oldest and most indispensable elements in the foundation of culture."[4][5][6] John Locke does not use the terms self-awareness or self-consciousness though.[7] According to Locke, personal identity (the self) "depends on consciousness, not on substance" nor on the soul. We are the same person to the extent that we are conscious of our past and future thoughts and actions in the same way as we are conscious of our present thoughts and actions. If consciousness is this "thought" which doubles all thoughts, then personal identity is only founded on the repeated act of consciousness: "This may show us wherein personal identity consists: not in the identity of substance, but ... in the identity of consciousness". For example, one may claim to be a reincarnation of Plato, therefore having the same soul. However, one would be the same person as Plato only if one had the same consciousness of Plato's thoughts and actions that he himself did. Therefore, self-identity is not based on the soul. One soul may have various personalities. Self-identity is not founded either on the body or......

Self Awareness

...start with some definition of terms to set the scope of my discussion. I will mention four ideas however I shall be focusing more on self-awareness because I believe that this is the fundamental concept upon which the rest of the ideas stem. Firstly, let me begin with self awareness which is defined as the capacity to perceive one’s strength, capabilities and limitations; in other words: insight. Secondly, we have self concept which involves multi-dimensional facets of oneself. One’s past, present and foreseeable future as well as how a person interacts with the people around him/her shapes one’s self concept. Next, we have self-esteem which is roughly the amount of pride one invests in oneself. Lastly we have self-disclosure which is both the conscious and subconscious act of revealing oneself to others. This may include but not limited to thoughts, feelings, aspirations, goals, fears and dreams as well as one’s personal preferences. I believe that self awareness, self concept, self-esteem and disclosure are easily defined concepts. All of these boil down to knowing, understanding and accepting oneself. And when we talk about these things, the questions “why” and “how” often comes to mind. First, why do we need to know ourselves? The answer is pretty obvious. As you develop self awareness, establish self-concept, grow self-esteem and begin self-disclosure you are able to make changes in the thoughts and interpretations you make in your mind. Changing the interpretations......

Behavior Self Management Contract

...BEHAVIORAL SELF – MANAGEMENT CONTRACT J. Bellamy 26 October 2013 1.) Target Behavior – I would like to obtain an “A” grade as the outcome of my time spent in Psychology 103 - Introduction to Psychology. 2.) Baseline - At present, I spend 2 hours per week in lecture on Thursdays and generally spend an approximate additional 2 – 2 ½ hours per week studying the current chapter material. This includes but is not limited to reviewing the recorded lecture materials as well as reviewing the book chapter and my notes. This review is usually very haphazard and at the last minute; i.e., Thursday morning before the test that afternoon. My present study habits have resulted in my obtaining a “B” grade, thus far. This grade has met my expectations as far as outcome for the level of preparedness I have committed. 3.) Goal – I would like to work on prioritizing my time for Psychology study work. I intend to achieve this goal by setting a 1 hour block on Wednesday evening between 9-10pm, and an additional 2 hour block on Friday from 12 – 2pm to dedicate to Psychology each week. These times will require me to study the material while it is still fresh and every week, not just before an impending test. This plan will also allow me to set a firm schedule for my studying and prevent “cramming” by making the times planned events. With the planned out blocks of time, studying will not be “last minute” and will result in my obtaining the “A” grade I would like in......

Vulnerable Populations and Self-Awareness

...Vulnerable Population and Self-Awareness University of Phoenix Vulnerable Population and Self-Awareness The vulnerable population chosen as the focus of this paper are the mentally retarded or intellectually disabled. According to the tenth revision of the WHO (world health Organization): intellectual disability (ID) is a disorder defined by the presence of incomplete or arrested mental development, principally characterized by the deterioration of concrete functions at each stage of development and that contribute to the overall level of intelligence, such as cognitive, language, motor, and socialization functions; in this anomaly, adaptation to the environment is always affected. For ID, the scores for intellectual development levels must be determined based on all the available information, including clinical signs, adaptive behavior in the cultural medium of the individual and psychometric findings (Katz, 2008) There are many causes of intellectual disability, but doctors find a specific reason in only 25% of cases (Mental retardation, 2010). Intellectual disability affects approximately 1-3% of the population. Persons with intellectual disability can expect to live 50 years and beyond depending on the severity of their health problems (Staff, 2009). With early intervention and improved health care, life span continues to increase. Prior to researching mental retardation, my personal awareness was very limited. I have not had much experience or......

The Vulnerable Population and Self- Awareness

...make the right choice about birth control or pregnancy may have contributed to the recent decline in teenage pregnancy. Having a place where teens feel comfortable discussing sex and making informed decisions is a step in the right direction (Planned Parenthood, 2012). Attitudes, Biases, and Stereotypes My personal awareness of teenage pregnancies is that they tend to happen to uneducated girls looking for love or a way out of what they perceive as a bad situation. I have noticed a trend with teenage pregnancies. It seems that when a teenager gets pregnant and keeps the child, when that child gets into their teenage years they seem to become teen parents like his or her parents. People are biased by nature, however with self-awareness they can learn to accept thing they do not agree with. Becoming aware of ones beliefs helps to isolate thoughts when confronted with making decisions for patients. According to Dovidio & Fiske, (2012), “Prejudice and stereotypes do not have to be consciously endorsed to produce discrimination; people often respond automatically—frequently without awareness—to others’ race or ethnicity, activating stereotypical beliefs, emotional prejudices, and discriminatory tendencies” (p. 945). Health care professionals when under time constraints or have other demands on their time are likely to have the same biases that occur among the general population even though they are devotion to helping others. Many prejudices and stereotypes are involuntary......

Self-Awareness of the NASW Standards for Cultural Competence in Social Work Practice “Social workers shall develop an understanding of their own personal and cultural values and beliefs as a first step in appreciating the importance of multicultural identities in the lives of people….Cultural competence includes knowing and acknowledging how fears, ignorance, and the “isms” (racism, sexism, ethnocentrism, heterosexism, ageism, classism) have influenced their attitudes, beliefs, and feelings.” The skill of self-awareness refers to the ability to recognize our own thoughts, beliefs, emotions, personality traits, personal values, habits, biases, strengths, weaknesses, and the psychological needs that drive our behaviors.

...Michele Smith 3/6/13 Professor: Guilfoyle NUR301 Self-Awareness Self-Awareness is having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. Self-Awareness allows you to understand other people, how they perceive you, your attitude and your responses to them in the moment. As one develops self-awareness you are able to make changes in the thoughts and interpretations you make in your mind. Changing the interpretations in your mind allows you to change your emotions. Self-awareness is one of the elements of Emotional Intelligence and an important factor in achieving success. After taking this class I was able to truly understand self-awareness and how it can affect my life. Depending on where you focus your attention, your emotions, reactions, personality and behavior determine where you go in life. This class taught me many interesting things I never knew about self-awareness. Having self- awareness allows you to see where your thoughts and emotions are taking you. It also allows you to see the controls of your emotions, behavior, and personality so you can make changes you want. Until you are aware in the moment of the controls to your thoughts, emotions, words, and behavior, you will have difficulty making changes in the direction of your life. The two self-awareness’s that affect me and that I learned a lot from in this class were stress and personality. I tend to let the littlest things......

Self Awareness

...Benefits and Obstacles of Self Awareness: 1. Benefits: Self-awareness is proven to drive success of leaders in what they accomplish and how they are perceived by others. 2. Obstacles: In spite of many benefits that self awareness bring to a leader’s success, many people still ignore to understanding themselves and deny negative feedbacks. They may see themselves as better as or worse than they really are. Inaccurate understanding of self may lead to arrogance or self-diminishment of leaders; therefore it affects the organizational effectiveness. This can occur due to several factors: a. Incompetence: The lesser the competence of individual to assess self, the worse would be the accuracy of self-assessment. Because we may assess ourselves inaccurately, self-assessment is not always treated as a reliable criterion to evaluate self-awareness. It requires individuals the ability to be free from prejudice and biased. b. Motives: It occurs when an individual is inability to accept the truth about self or fail to be dispassionate during self-assessment. The cause of this problem is that individuals are guided by several important motives that push them in one direction or another and the psychological safety prevents leaders to accept objective feedback (Sedikides and Strube 1997). c. Self-Presentation: Self Presentation is the ability to affect public perceptions and persuade followers to believe we are who we show to the outsiders. Leaders often do......

...wants to do. This problem of indecision is magnified in the junior and senior years of high school when students must begin to make decisions on colleges or jobs that will affect the rest of their lives. The more a student reflects upon his choices; the more he examines his motives, his goals, his ideals and values in life, the more he is perplexed. Up to this point in the student's life, parents and friends have offered their guidance; they have told the child what they believe is ''right'' and what is ''wrong.'' Now the young adult must examine his own feelings, formulate his own set of values, for he alone can answer the important questions that face him. In a time when there often seems to be no real morals, no concise codes of behavior, I think this task becomes extremely difficult. The discovery of increasing drug and alcohol use should not come as a shock to the community in light of the decisions between morals that today's youths are forced to face. Drug usage is simply a symptom of the confusion of youth. Getting ''high'' is a way of escaping reality....

Self Awareness

...Self-awareness is the awareness that one exists as an individual being. Without self-awareness the self perceives and accepts the thoughts that are occurring to be who the self is. Self-awareness gives one the option or choice to choose thoughts being thought rather than simply thinking the thoughts that are stimulated from the accumulative events leading up to the circumstances of the moment. Self-Awareness Theory states that when we focus our attention on ourselves, we evaluate and compare our current behavior to our internal standards and values. We become self-conscious as objective evaluators of ourselves. Various emotional states are intensified by self-awareness, and people sometimes try to reduce or escape it through things like television, video games, drugs, etc. However, some people may seek to increase their self-awareness through these outlets. People are more likely to align their behavior with their standards when made self-aware. People will be negatively affected if they don't live up to their personal standards. Various environmental cues and situations induce awareness of the self, such as mirrors, an audience, or being videotaped or recorded. These cues also increase accuracy of personal memory Self-awareness will provide an internal picture of how you perceive yourself. Your self-image is responsible for your everyday relations to your family, friends and day-by-day acquaintances. A good self-image will make your life and the people around you happy...

Emotional Intelligence in Project Management

...1.0 The Role of Emotional Intelligence In Project and Construction Management Today 1.1 Introduction This literature review deals with the role of emotional intelligence in project and construction management today and argues that, even if it is a relatively new approach and just became more and more important during the last decade, the topic is still not getting enough attention in the contemporary construction industry (Zhang & Fan, 2013). Especially when it comes to larger and more complex or even international and cultural complex projects, a high level of emotional intelligence and competence in the project management might be more necessary and contribute to the project’s success (Müller & Turner, 2007). Therefore this literature review contains an overview of the significant authors, defines the actual term of emotional intelligence, analyses the main issues and positions, summarizes some relevant studies and research and identifies implications for contemporary project and construction management practice. 1.2 Overview As one of the most significant authors Goleman (1995) defines emotional intelligence as the ability of being aware of your own and other’s emotions, recognizing them and even using them to influence people in their actual thinking and behaviour. That is why these abilities are very supportive and at least as important as IQ or technical skills for every leader independent of his industry, in order to achieve better business results......

Self Awareness Paper

...Self – Awareness Paper Danmeng Yin Lec 03 Student #: 1000366141 It is not unfamiliar to most people that they tend to receive positive feedbacks from their bosses, colleagues and friends. When they take those complements with rejoice and think that is who they really are, they fail to realize the foolishness on their end. While people tend to give credit to themselves when the result turns favorable, it is a normal practice that they place blame on externalities when things go south. However, they should be thinking within themselves about what really contributed to the result, especially in modern world where leadership skill is closely related to a person’s overall performance at work. That leads us to the conclusion that the importance of self-awareness can not be neglected. In fact, research has shown that the development of self-awareness if the first step in building leaderful practices which might simply start with some reflection about one’s strengths, weaknesses, believes and actions and how those may affect others. (Scott, 2004). Self-awareness enables people to identify their own needs, desire, strengths and weaknesses. It is a stepping stone to making wiser decisions. A person who doesn’t know he is doing anything wrong is not motivated to be put right. In this paper I am going to self-identify the strengths and weaknesses of me, enumerate real examples and discuss the impacts of these traits on my performance at work or school. After that, a......

Vulnerable Population and Self Awareness

...Vulnerable Population and Self-Awareness All people have biases and self awareness is the key. Understanding how personal attitudes and values can affect the delivery of health care to the individual, the family and the various vulnerable populations will enable us to better identify and, serve without bias. The vulnerable population represented in the Neighborhood season three is the single teen parent, the J. Riley household. Within the household, there is Jennifer Riley age 19, mother of 2 children, a 17 month old son and 6 week old daughter, she works in food service. She has never been married and lives with her boyfriend Casey Holmes age 24. Casey is a night warehouse stocker and father to the second child. He is abusive, drinks, smokes and vandalizes cars for money and eventually ends up in jail for armed robbery and vehicular murder. Prior to his incarceration she left him and sought refuge at a shelter after being abused. A single parent usually refers to a parent who has most of the day to day responsibilities in the raising of the child or children, which would categorize them as the dominant caregiver. The dominant caregiver is the parent in which the children have residency with the majority of the time (Wikipedia). The single parent family first became recognized in 1931 (Bradbury 2000). Being a single parent has always been an issue. The only difference is that 70 years ago, a pregnant teen was a disgrace to the family and often times were shipped away to...
