Skills Exercise: Developing Your Coaching Skills
Practicing the Skill:
Collaborative efforts are more successful when every member of the group or team contributes a specific role or task toward the completion of the goal. To improve your skill at nurturing team effort, choose two of the following activities and break each one into at least six to eight separate tasks or steps. Be sure to indicate which steps are sequential, and which can be done simultaneously with others. What do you think is the ideal team size for each activity you choose? A. Making an omelet
When making an omelet there are steps that need to be taken to make sure that the omelet comes out the way that you want it to. Making an omelet is usually a one person activity, but some time you can make it with two people. If you follow these easy steps you can make sure that your omelet comes out the way you want it to taste.
First you need to make sure that you have all of the ingredients. The main ingredient is eggs, and to make a good omelet you will need about four eggs that way there is enough to cover the other ingredients. The next ingredients that you will depends on what kind of an omelet you are wanting to make, so I will make a ham and cheese omelet. For a ham and cheese omelet you will need ham and cheese to add to your eggs. Along with the ingredients you need to make sure that you have a skillet and a spatula so that you can cook your omelet on.
The second thing that you will need to do when making your omelet is to mix your eggs. Usually you can just out your eggs into a cup or bowl and mix them that way and then add them to you skillet once it is hot. The reason you have to make sure that you mix all of your eggs together is because you do not want to add your eggs to your skillet and then…...

...Communication is the act of sending a message whether it is written or verbal. Communication can be sent by email, telephone, text message, television, and or radio. It is very important that we all master communication skills. Communication helps us not only in our working environment, but also in our personal life as well. There are many ways communication can be delivered. One of the ways is verbal, speaking face to face or via telephone. When speaking with some one verbally you can hear their tone and know whether or not someone is being sincere, upset, or happy. Verbal communication is in my opinion the easier of the two. You can actually hear and see what a person is saying. You can feel the emotion behind the words being used, and it has more of an effect on you. There are some that even when they are speaking verbally their words come across wrong or their tone doesn’t match what they are trying to convey to you. The following is an example that I have composed of a verbal communication. Good Ex: Can you please bring me the yellow binder at noon? Bad Ex: Bring me that thingy around lunch. The first sentence is polite, but in the second sentence you have no idea what the person is talking about and they are not asking they are being demanding. When using communication in written form it is more important to choose your words carefully and to use the appropriate tone. If this is not done correctly one could easily take the message as being offensive. Once......

Case: 393 U.S. 503 [the case came out in 1969] In December 1965, students of public schools in Des Moines, Iowa wore a black armband to school to show their objections to the hostilities in Vietnam. The principals of these three schools became aware of the student’s plan to wear the armbands on December 16, 1965, and adopted a policy forbidding students to wear the armbands two days prior. Any student wearing an armband would be asked to remove it, or would be suspended for refusal until after New Year’s Day. Though the petitioners, Mary Beth and John Tinker and Christopher Eckhardt, were aware of the regulation that the school authorities adopted, they still wore their armbands to school as planned and were suspended when they refused to remove them. Tinker v. Des Moines Sch. Dist. 393 U.S. 503 (1969) b.

He also seem to hint that some spiritual leaders do not hope to achieve greatness, because they are not using their God given gifts and talents in ministry. McNeal uses the following words as the heading for his introduction, “NEEDED: GREAT SPIRITUAL LEADERS.” From the introduction one might assume that McNeal feels that great spiritual leaders are few and far in-between in the age in which we currently live. McNeal also quotes opening words spoken in a chapel service by Elton Trueblood which were, “Deliberate mediocrity is a sin.” McNeal seemingly feels that far too many churches and spiritual leader operate at such a low level that they are unable to motivate, inspire, or excite others. Unfortunately, some spiritual leaders......

...Critical and Creative Thinking Evelyn Bonilla PHL 458 Due January 13, 2014 Shuwn Hayes Critical and Creative Thinking Thinking critically is something teachers have asked students to do since they start school. It is something that bosses ask their employees to do and what CEOs of companies must do to stay competitive. However, critical thinking is one of the hardest skills to hone and maintain. Also, critical thinking alone does not keep a business running. Critical thinking must be paired with creative thinking to be truly successful. Think it through, if a CEO stops trying to innovate or create new policies or products then they stop evolving and become irrelevant. If you look at critical and creative thinking in the technological age, Blackberry is a prime example. For many years Blackberry had a stronghold on the “smartphone” market. It safe and secure email made it perfect for business people on the go and the full text keyboard, or “QWERTY” as its now called, made sending text messages and replying to emails so simple. However, then the iPhone was released. Blackberry did not want to change to a text screen and by the time they did; in late 2013 it was too late. Smartphones have applications, games, email, and a multitude of other features. However, companies are reluctant to create apps for the new Blackberry smartphone because Blackberry does not have the market share it once did. They may have seen that people did not immediately jump onto......

English Skill

...own language which is extremely complex and quite difficult to understand. Hence, English is regarded as a bridge which helps information exchanges among Asian countries get to be more simply. It is fairly hard for Asian learners to use English correctly and effectively, especially speaking skill although they have been trained this language for a long time. When interviewing students from five Asian nations, Erlenawat has concluded that these learning difficulties are grounded in weaknesses in students’ prior learning experiences – focused on grammar and reading skills in classrooms, not conversational skills (Erlenawati Sawir, 2005). Vietnamese students are not exception of these problems and they are getting trouble with finding their own effective methods to overcome. Despite the fact that many Vietnamese learners spent nearly or even more than 10 years studying English at school, they cannot pronounce an English sentence exactly and fluently. As a result, they are not self-assured enough to speak out in the language. It can be clearly seen that a large number of students understand English grammar very well and get high score in written examinations whereas their oral communication skills are very poor and they are often shy to attempt to strike up a conversation (Trung Hieu, 2011). In “Language difficulties of international students in Australia: The effects of prior learning experience”, Erlenawati concentrated on international students’ difficulties of communicating......

Practicing International Management Case

...Practicing International Management Case: Psychology of Global Marketing 1. Put yourself in the position of Stephan Loerke of the World Federation of Advertisers.  First, make an argument for why the EU should not enact more strict advertising laws.  Second, make a case for why advertisers operating in the EU should initiate "voluntary" limits.  Third, make a case for why current laws need no modification whatsoever.  Which case do you agree with?  Which case do you think is the strongest?           The European Union should not enact more strict advertising laws because it would simply be a waste of their time. In the article, it says, “But the problem for the Swedes (and others with more restrictive bans) is that they can only enforce their laws on programs originating from within their country. They have no power of enforcement over programs broadcast from other nations or from satellite transmissions.” Therefore, they can try and implement regulations that should be followed, but there are still ways that advertisers will be able to get around them.        Advertisers operating in the European Union should initiate “voluntary” limits because those countries like Sweden can try and enforce what they believe in, whereas others do not have to. Current laws need no modification whatsoever because no matter what is put in place advertisers will still be able to get their product or ad seen regardless of whether it be through social media, television, or word of......

We recognise that in this increasingly competitive world, we need to equip our young people with an understanding of the basics in life as early as we can, as businesses both large and small cannot afford to recruit staff who are unprepared for their start in the world of work.

Practicing Decision-Making

...Review of a past decision based on the models and traps discussed in the book – “Practicing Decision-Making”. The decision I will be reviewing in this paper is – “I decided to close down the small business venture I was operating and pursue an MBA from EDHEC”. Firstly, I will present the situation around this decision. I was operating a high end retail gaming centre – a small entrepreneurial venture I set up about two and half years ago. As this was my first exposure to business dynamics (I had an engineering background with three and half years of software development experience) - the initial six months of setting up the venture and the subsequent two years of operating it involved a steep learning curve. I faced a lot of new challenges and learnt a lot about small retail businesses while dealing with these challenges. The vision of my gaming centre was to promote the latest computer games and help improve the gaming scene in Hyderabad, India. But I was disappointed to notice that off late the game development companies were moving away from the traditional computer gaming platform to the new console gaming platform (to cut down on piracy). I realised that this would have an adverse long term effect on my centre due to the vision I had for the centre and the USP I built around it. Also, a new entertainment multiplex had come up very close to my gaming centre and even though it did not have an immediate effect on the revenue I realised that in the long term it is going...
