Write a report reflecting on your experiences of the Everest group simulation exercise this semester with reference to concepts and theories encountered in this course.

Executive Summary

Everest, a virtual game designed by Harvard Business School and Forio Business
Simulations, forces players to challenge problems that arise and conquer them as a team. After viewing a frightening video that portrays the mountain climbing experience, students are arranged in groups of five and assigned different roles with varying description and goals, ranging from ambitious athletes to preservative environmentalists. Confronting numerous challenges such as oxygen scarcity, unpredictable weather and volatile health conditions, teams progress up the mountain, with the ultimate goal of reaching the summit.
The game is intelligent in its simplistic design – it gives different goals and information to each player. The physician has knowledge on numerous diseases, but is unable to use it if the marathoner fails to announce her critical health condition – a probable situation as the game encourages players to hide the information.
In hindsight, our team was given two attempts to complete the simulation. The first simulation was conducted with little experience and understanding of group members and roles. Formation of conspiracies led to discomfort due to conflicting personal goals, limited resources, differing opinions and ambiguity governed the functionality of our team. As a result, process loss occurred as our teamed failed to share information, instigating relationship conflicts and a pattern of groupthink.
Poor results from our first…...

...Over the past few years, a lot of research has been conducted on intrapersonal and interpersonal perception and their contribution to individual success. Perception plays an important role in both intrapersonal and interpersonal communications. By definition, perception means the judgement and understanding gained from interaction either between two or more parties or within the person himself (Anant 2010, p. 34). This essay argues that good intrapersonal and interpersonal perception is vital in individual success both at university and at work. This topic includes motivational goal setting, accurate self-monitoring, successful coordination of actions and good interpersonal skills. Intrapersonal perception is one of the decisive components in achieving both academic and career success. It involves understanding of a person himself, including his goals, characteristics and his own feelings. In order to have strong intrapersonal perception, two elements must exist: goal setting and self-monitoring. Goal setting is a process involves establishing a set of realistic and measurable targets achievable within a specific time. Smith (2013, p. 20) pointed out that goal setting provides an individual with a long-term vision and motivates him to work towards the respective goals. As they focus on their goals, they will demonstrate optimistic characteristics and feel motivated to strive for their goals. According to Bressler’s study (2010, p. 39), individuals with high motivation......

...MGMT1001: Everest Report Andrew Lau A critical and reflective self-evaluation of my experiences during the Everest team simulation in the contexts of ‘attitudes, personalities & perceptions’, ‘power & conflict’ and ‘groups & teams’. Executive Summary The Everest simulation is a team simulation designed to emulate real life group processes and the diverse range of intergroup interactions this entails. Developed by Harvard Business School, participants are grouped into teams of 5 (with an optional sixth member, the observer) that make a virtual climb up Mount Everest. Performance is assessed through both individual and team goals that are provided throughout the simulation. Members were allocated into groups randomly within tutorial groups and assigned roles within the simulation. I was assigned the role of environmentalist, but assumed the informal role as one of the team’s leaders. Our group as a whole managed to achieve a satisfactory 67% of team goals, and I managed to achieve 57% of my individual goals. The objective of this report is to critically analyse and reflect upon the intergroup interactions that lead to the successes and failings of our team. These successes and failings will be viewed through the lens of the theories and concepts developed in the course in order to gain insight into group processes and human behaviour. The report starts with analysing and breaking down human cognitive processes and social interactions through the......

...The issue of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has become an increasing concern among individuals and society. CSR has thus become an integral part of arguably most businesses in light of topical issues. However, much skepticism towards businesses’ agendas underpinning their CSR initiatives is abounding. This may be justifiably so. Evidence suggests that CSR initiatives undertaken by both large businesses as well as small and medium enterprises (SME) are largely resultant of strategic and profit driven imperatives rather than humanitarian and altruistic aspirations. This essay will explore the underlying factors that compel Australian businesses’ CSR ventures by analysing their stances on CSR as well as extrinsic drivers of CSR, further citing CSR’s pertinence to businesses’ financial performance, hence evincing that altruistic reasons are not the foremost impetus for the undertaking of CSR for corporations in Australia. Definitions of CSR differ widely in literature (Truscott, Bartlett & Tywoniak, 2009). This essay will draw upon Carroll’s (1979) construct of CSR, comprising of economic, legal, ethical and discretionary responsibilities assumed by business entities, as a yardstick in determining the degree of CSR undertaken by firms. Economic dimensions of CSR encompass profit generation through effective business management, legal dimensions entail compliance with codified law, ethical dimensions embody adhering to ethical and moral parameters and discretionary......

...Do managers need emotional intelligence to manage successfully in the workplace? Why or why not? According to Mayer and Salovey (1997), the concept ‘emotional intelligence’ can be defined as ‘the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth’ (cited in George 2000, p1033). Since the 1990s, the relationship between emotional intelligence and managerial skills has been discussed intensely. The purpose for this essay is to argue that managers do need emotional intelligence to manage successfully for following reasons. First, at the individual stage, emotional intelligence is needed for providing managers with sufficient abilities to regulate their emotions, set appropriate goals and objectives and make accurate decisions. Secondly, at the intermediate stage, emotional intelligence is necessary to managers during the process of communication and positive relationship construction with employees. Last, at the collective stage, emotional intelligence is constructive with management that it helps leaders to be sensitive with the organizational climate to form better teamwork. First, managers need emotional intelligence to manage successfully at the individual stage that emotional intelligence provides them with sufficient abilities to regulate their emotions, set appropriate goals and objectives and......
