One of the most successful and accepted coaching methods in the workplace is the GROW model. Coaching lets a coachee become more aware of what they can do with their life and prepares them to take more accountability for it. This technique is achieved through sessions, as in:

➢ Goal

➢ Reality

➢ Options

➢ Will

In the Goal stage, the coach enables the coachee to establish where they want to be or what they want to achieve. Once the coachee creates some goals for themselves, the coach and coachee work together to define the goals as clearly and distinctively as possible. But also as stated in Whitmore’s book, “Even if goals can be only loosely defined before the situation is looked at in some detail, this needs to be done first” (Whitmore, John. 2002, pg. 67). In the Reality stage, the coachee’s goal is evaluated against where they stand right now. This is where a test of the skills and/or knowledge the coachee possesses is made and it is determined what skills and/or knowledge is required to accomplish their goal. In the Options stage, the coachee builds on various potential paths between the current reality and the goal they want to complete. The solution is not to find the “right” answer but to take full advantage of the choices available. In the final stage, the Will stage, the coachee needs to commit to and take responsibility for carrying out the agreed action plan.

My workplace and classmate coaching experience is an ongoing learning process that I continue to develop every, single day. The workplace coaching is tremendously challenging due to the fact that my coachee is not very obliging and deems the process as repetitive and immature. I continuously have to engage the individual in the coaching process by asking questions if she feels comfortable with the…...

Does Performance-Based Pay Improve the Effectiveness of Professionals?

...Does performance-based pay improve the effectiveness of professionals? For many years, most public and private organizations have been implementing the performance-based pay system in order to improve the effectiveness of professionals but the question one might ask is ‘Does it necessarily improve the performance of professionals and is it the best method? The world is gradually becoming a global village where people from different cultural background and orientation make up the entirety of an organization workforce. What happens in cultures where rewards have to be given collectively to a team and not based on an individual’s performance alone? In a performance-based pay system, managers may set targets for the employees and these must be met at a given period of time. After which the employees get a reward or an incentive. These targets may sometimes require an employee to work overtime and what then happens if this employee comes from a low masculinity country for instance, where personal time is valued. This employee will less likely meet his set targets at the timeline given to him; he would prefer to spend time with his family than give up his evenings because of what he is expecting as a reward. This goes to say that the type of reward system is also linked to the cultural background of an employee. The purpose of this paper is to determine if performance-based pay improves the performance of professionals. It is true that money is a necessity of life but......

Should Professional Athletes Be Role Models

...Professional athletes should be more aware of their actions because of their celebrity status making them role models for children. With all the media surroundind athletes in every aspect of their lives, one would think they would want to be more aware of their actions, role models or not. If an athlete gets a speeding ticket, everyone knows. If an athlete has an affair, everyone knows. I am not saying athletes should be perfect, because no one is. I am just saying they should think a little more about what they do because children look up to them more often than not. This is evident in the amount of sports posters, pennants, and clothing that are for sale everywhere. Just look on the walls of most children's bedrooms and you are bound to find at least one sports figure on their walls. For instance as long as there have been professional sports ahildren have idolized athletes, just remember the baseball card collections and how collectable they were and still are today. There are more than just baseball cards now. The card collections have grown to include all sports like football, basketball, hockey and even soccer. Some of these cards are worth more than some homes. The children who collect these items may trade them for ones they dont have and keep them safer than anything else they own. Some children may just want the cards of their favorite athlete, not worrying about the monetary value of the card, just the value it holds for them. The fact that the card......

Professional Development of Nursing Professionals the complete degree of their scope. Obsolete polices and regulations especially the ones directed to scope of practice will need to be revised, most notable for the advanced practice registered nurse. The prediction is that the ACA will have great impact on APRNs . The shortfall of direct care providers may press states where APRNs do not currently have self-direct practice and prescriptive authority, so that there are ample providers to fulfill the people’s health care needs. The data supports that APRNs should be working to their complete scope. In the Journal of Nurse Practitioners they evaluated the information heeding the outcomes of nurse practitioners (NPs) equated to physicians (MDs) on health care quality, safety, and effectiveness. Data from 37 of 27,993 articles published from 1990-2009 were summarized into 11 aggregated outcomes. Sufficient amount of evidence argued improved serum lipid levels in patients tended for by NPs in primary care settings. A large proportion of evidence also demonstrated that patient results on contentment with care, health status, functional status, number of emergency department visits and hospitalizations, blood glucose, blood pressure, and mortality are similar for NPs and MDs (Stanik-Hutt et al., 2013). In response to the increase of veterans who are eligible to receive care from the ruling of Congress in 1996, VA hospitals restructured themselves to meet these demands. They changed their focus from the acute care setting to......

A Comparative Analysis of the Effectiveness of Three Solvency Management Models

...A Comparative Analysis Of The Effectiveness Of Three Solvency Management Models By Enyi, Patrick Enyi Ph.D, MBA, B.Sc, ACA, ACCA, MFP, RFS. Fellow, American Academy of Financial Management (AAFM) Member, American Accounting Association (AAA) Head, Department of Accounting, Covenant University, Ota, Nigeria A Comparative Analysis Of The Effectiveness Of Three Solvency Management Models Abstract The introduction of the Altman’s Z-score model in 1983 and much recently the Enyi’s Relative Solvency Ratio model in 2005 has divergently provided financial analysts with alternative methods of analyzing corporate solvency which hitherto was exclusively done using the traditional historical record based ratio analysis, with particular reference to the current ratio. To test the relevance and effectiveness of the three models, real life performance data were extracted from the annual reports of 7 quoted companies, analyzed using the three models and the results compared to show the strengths and weaknesses of each. The result revealed that the current ratio and the Z-score models suffer from many limitations including imprecision while the Relative Solvency Ratio combines the capability of an effective indicator with the precision required of a true predictor.

Should Professional Sports People (Such as Afl Footballers, National Cricketers) Be Role Models?

...Should professional sports people (such as AFL footballers, national cricketers) be role models? In this context, consider the role of observational and social learning, and what role they are modeling. Make sure that you primarily address psychological rather than sociological aspects of being a role model. Sport has always been a fundamental principle of Australian Society. The social and cultural roles of sport have provided Australians with unity as well as a sense of patriotism. Our interest in sport has not only contributed to expanding our “national consciousness” but was also a factor towards federation in 1901 (Cashman, 2003). Currently, almost 70 per cent of Australians engage in some form of sporting activity every week (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, 2012) and through this our passion towards sport has even extended to an elite level. Within Australia there is a considerably large football culture, where “thousands of Australians descend on football stadiums” to support their respective teams (Australian Government, 2008). Of these codes the most “loyal and dedicated fans” are those devoted to Australian Rules Football (AFL) (Australian Government, 2008) and their devotion also spreads to those who play it. Due to the physical and social benefits that sport has on young Australians, the negative consequences which may arise due to them idolizing sports men and women, are quite often overlooked. In most cases, young boys view sportsmen such as AFL......

Professional Presence

...Professional Presence and Influence Western Governors University Professional Presence and Influence A1. Models of Health and Healing- The candidate provides a logical discussion, with substantial detail, of the differences between 2 models of health and healing as they relate to what it means to be human. Since the mid-19th century, there have been three distinct models of health and healing. The first era began in the mid-1960s and dealt primarily with the physical body. It is known as the mechanical model and focused solely on the anatomy and physiology of the body. It was physical in nature, and gave no consideration to the mind or spiritual side of the human being. In this section we will compare the differences between Era II, the Body/Mind model, which emerged around the 1950s, and Era III, the Body/Mind/Spirit or Bio/Psycho/Social model which emerged in the 1990s. During the mid-20th century, Health care providers began to understand that human consciousness played an important role in overall wellness. They recognized that patients with a positive mental attitude about their condition and care generally healed faster than those who did not. Doctors and nurses started to value and encourage input from the patients in their care. Health care professionals began to notice that emotional well-being, personal belief system and attitude all had a definite impact on health and for the first time became important in treating disease. This new phenomenon was......

Effectiveness of Fiscal Policy Under Both Fixed and Floating Exchange Rates Using Is-Lm-Bp Model

...Effectiveness of Fiscal Policy under Both Fixed and Floating Exchange Rates using IS-LM-BP Model In order to examine the degree in which fiscal policy can be used effectively in this model, the variables that directly influence the outcomes of its use need to be identified. These are, exchange rate regime whether fixed of flexible that is in place and the degree that capital is mobile. The level of capital mobility is how challenging or simple it is for private individuals or firms to move funds across borders. Exchange rate regimes fall into two categories fixed and flexible, flexible exchange rate means that it is determine by supply and demand factors of said currency. In a fixed exchange rate scheme the value of the domestic exchange rate is fixed to a certain level, often to another currencies price or other commodity this can make trade between the given economy easier. Here is 8 combinations of fixed and flexible exchange rate and levels of capital mobility and how the outcomes show the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the fiscal policy expansion policy implementation. Fiscal Expansionary Policy within a Flexible Exchange Rate Scheme with Somewhat Mobile Capital The mobility of the capital can be determine by the steepness off the BP curve, the steeper the curve the more mobile the capital as it is in this case.

In fact, studies on low-price cosmetic brands in the Korean cosmetic market are rather insignificant at present and barely any looks into the influence of brand recognition and famous models on the consumer's purchasing intention. The experimental design of this study is made up of 2(brand familiarity: high vs low) X 2(advertisement model: famous vs non-famous), a two-way mixed factorial design which has brand familiarity as a between-subject variable and advertisement model as a within-subject variable. Creating an advertisement especially for this study, I carried out a questionnaire survey to female university students and career women in downtown Seoul and conducted a two-way ANOVA. Based on the analysis of how brand familiarity and famous model each influenced the consumer purchasing behavior, I found that when it came to low-price cosmetics, a famous model had greater effect on the purchasing intention than a non-famous model if the consumers were familiar with the brand. This shows that brand familiarity mainly......

...Individual: Organizational Model Effectiveness Patton-Fuller Community Hospital is a virtual healthcare organization that provides hospital services for a community. The organization consists of your usual staff such as doctors, nurses, CNAs, and your support and ancillary personnel. The current organizational structure in place constitutes of variety of directors, executive officers, and the like. For being a community hospital, there are a lot more supervisory and executive roles than there needs to be for a small hospital. A community hospital is defined as a small business entity that provides general practice services to the surrounding community that has a small population (Primrose, 1998). After carefully reviewing, the organizational structure could be trimmed down in a variety of ways depending on what the focus is of the community needs are. For example, say that this community hospital is located in a retirement community; the organizational structure would have to be composed of a large amount of nursing, respite, and hospice care due to the age of the population. However, if the community hospital were to be located in a college town where the age group is more or less in the young adult range, then the organizational model would need to follow nursing, pediatric care, and more of a general practice approach. Furthermore, the organizational model is directly reflective as to what the population the community is serving. In stating......

...Abstract This paper compares the effectiveness of online forum discussion between quantitative and qualitative subjects offered to learners of Open University Malaysia (OUM). OUM adopted by OUM for its open and distance learning (ODL) comprises three components; self-managed learning, face-to-face interactions and online learning through myLMS to facilitate teaching and learning process. The nature of online learning requires high commitment from the learners, especially self-managed learning and collaborative online learning. Learning quantitative subjects such as mathematics or finance in a conventional environment is very demanding and it is difficult to grasp by a majority of learners compared to learning qualitative subjects such as management or marketing. The same problem existed in learning these subjects through e-learning. Therefore, interactions between the academic staff or tutors with the learners and also amongst learners are important. Thus, it is critical that quality and effective teaching and learning progression take place in online forum discussion. Community of Inquiry (CoI) is the most accepted model for online learning. The model as suggested by Garrison, Anderson and Archer (2000) stated that online learning occurs through the interaction of three domains: teaching presence, social presence and cognitive presence. Research findings indicate that there the mean score for all the three domains of CoI are relatively the same for both quantitative and......
