"An effective leader of any organization—from the military to businesses to social organizations—is someone who is decisive, acts quickly, and remains committed to certain key principles
I agree with the statement "An effective leader of any organization—from the military to businesses to social organizations—is someone who is decisive, acts quickly, and remains committed to certain key principles. These traits make Militaries, Businesses and social organizations thrive. Without these traits Nations decline, Businesses would fail and social organizations could be very unorganized.
Because the Military is the nation’s strongest point, the leadership of the Military must possess decisiveness, promptly responses, and they must value key principles. If the military does not possess these traits the Nation could decline. It is important for the leader of the military to be decisive because it is up to them to decide if the nation should to go to war. If there is no cause for war and the leader of the military insists that we should go to war when there is no cause for war then it is too late. He put soldiers as well as the nation in danger. An example of this is when President Bush decided to go to war because he thought that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. When they realized that they were just speculations instead of facts it was too late. The nation went at war for no reason and a lot of lives were taken. The military should act quickly because the more time you take to act on something the longer the risk is. If a military leader takes their time to act it can possibly endanger someone’s life. Lastly it is important for Military leaders to stay committed to key principles. This is important because if they lose sight of key principles such as patriotism then they can lose a whole nation. It would be…...

...Describe a pace or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there and why is it meaningful to you? Kids now days might deem a place without internet, games consoles and cable as a nightmare, hell, a place of agony, I deem it as a place of serenity, comfort and wholeness. I call that place Las Cruses, New Mexico. Immediately after crossing into New Mexico County I feel welcomed, as if it’s been waiting for me to come back since I left. There is a New Mexico welcome center awaiting me just two miles away from entering the county, outside the actual building there is a sculpture of a road runner standing 35 ft. tall made of shoes. All kinds of shoes sneakers, heels, flats all kinds of sizes, yes it stinks a bit but it holds a small part of a lot of New Mexico residents including me, if you look closely you’ll see a little white shoe that belonged to a little bubbly Alma. If it wasn’t the welcoming essence of the city it was the hundreds of types of cacti that inundated the rural part of town that awed me or maybe it was the miles of pecan trees that surrounded the suburban part of town I felt as if I was one with nature, as if I couldn’t get closer. Every adobe style house had its own personality they were all classic colorful and sheik and not one failed to have an Aztec sun outside of it. Even when the sun went down I had something to look forward to, I could spend the whole night looking up at the clear, clean sky that accommodated......

Research - Practice

...The focus of this essay is on the relationship between researchers and external organisations or the practitioners, as I like to present them. While reading trough several articles and books in my field of interest, applying psychology to the work place is not always straightforward. The researchers or the academics are sometimes writing papers for publication but might not be addressing the issues to the people in the external organisations, managers and practitioners and try to solve the problems they are facing. Is there a gap between research and practice? Why is there a gap? What can be done to close this gap and by that make a more productive relationship between researchers and external organisations? The long-standing gap between research and practice in general is a matter of national concern. Why is there a failure in bringing research knowledge successfully into organisations? (Abbott, Walton, Tapia, & Greenwood, 1999) Along with the science-practice gaps identified by Rynes et al. (2002), a number of major changes occurring in the workplace over the last 10 years (e.g., increases in demographic diversity, changes in the nature of work, increases in outsourcing and downsizing, and skill shortages) suggest the need for HR practitioners to learn about new research findings that can assist in improving the management of HR. (Burke, Drasgow, & Edwards, 2004) There are numerous terms that can be used synonymously when talking about work psychology:......

Comparion Essay Esl Practice

...Comparison/Contrast Essay As the world’s fastest-growing major economy, China’s economy has been developing at a high speed in past 30 years. It, to some extent, leads to dramatic changes of the Chinese society in many aspects such as living standard, education level, and communication methods. There is no doubt that the value of every generation is greatly affected by these social changes. In my opinion, there is great distinction between my generation and my parents’ generation on view of love, view on a job, and view on consumption. First of all, compared to my parents, my generation takes a totally different position towards love. Nowadays, most young people insist on choosing their boyfriends or girlfriends by themselves. Moreover, statistics show that divorce is not a big deal for many young people. B in 30 years ago, traditional culture shows strict rules on choosing a spouse. My parents’ generation could never violate the traditional rules which supposed that parents were responsible for helping their son or daughter to pick out a mate, and breaking up with spouse was regarded as ominous. Those who violated rules were considered allegedly disobedient. Second, view on a job is varied among generations too. To consider what job position is most appropriate for them, the younger generation in China has to evaluate on many factors such as possibility of promotion, work atmosphere, and interest. The older generation, on the other hand, only cares about how much......

...Observation: Women’s Lacrosse As I observed the women’s lacrosse practice I noticed the qualities of the coaching and tempo of the practice that has lead to their success in the recent years. The practice was very fast pace and only took place on one half of the field. The parts that stood out to me the most was during the second half of the practice. One drill that was performed had the offense and defense split into two teams with the offense starting at midfield. Within the offensive side there were three groups of three players and they were attacking a defense made up of three players as well, not including the goalie in the net. There was a coach at the 50-yard line who was throwing the ball in to the offense. Once one of the offensive players caught the ball they all went into an attack distributing the among each other numerous times before getting close enough to take a shot. This was a great drill to do because it allowed the players to get a maximum amount of reps with decent amount of time in between each group and allowed the coach to see a controlled amount of players in a game like situation. The other drill in the second half of the practice brought the offensive group closer to the goal. The offense was given the ball at about 15-yards from the goal. They were around the parameter of the goal with about four to five players trying to score while the defense was guarding them trying to get a turnover. This drill really stood out to me as well because this......

Past investigations of the family society have had a tendency to use as a beginning stage the qualities and practices of conventional rustic society, which are likewise adept to describe provincial to themselves, in any event for the original. It is regularly comprehended that pre-adulthood can be a period when youngsters endeavor to accommodate their own particular goals and needs with the wishes of their guardians. While some teenagers get past this time of time without numerous issues, others have a tendency to experience numerous negative impacts. It is conceivable that the guardian's part in the relationship may have influence in the improvement of the generations’ conduct and disposition towards others. Social values, for example, the American Samoa and Western Samoa accentuation on reliance and family concordance might impact the kind of child parenting practices these generations may decide to embrace one. Research on more helpful child parenting practices is more constrained in spite of the fact that the work that has been carried out again recommends that parents are more prone to be included and sustaining with their kids when they report having encountered the same practices from their own parents during childhood (Chen and Kaplan, 2001; Simons et al., 1993; Cairns et al., 1998).

These programs are designed and put in place to help heal, give closure and guide a young person back onto the right track. Diversion and restorative programs work in parallel with youth work, which will be discussed within this essay through looking at what restorative justice and restorative programs entail, diversion programs, the strengths of diversion and restorative programs, and the links between diversion, restorative justice and youth work.  (Ted Watchel 2012) Restorative justice itself is a social science and primarily focuses on reducing crime, improving human behaviours, restoring relationships and repairing harm, restorative justice looks at how crime doesn't only affect the victim but the offender and the community as well, restorative justice focuses on the offender taking responsibility for their actions and wrongdoings and trying to make amends with the victim and their community.

These resolutions are set to accomplish something to better that person. Most people think they will come easy and usually they don’t achieve them, but if they would dedicate themselves it would surprise them how much easier it would be. A resolution to me is a challenge to better myself in the year. I have three New Year’s resolutions in order to make 2013 a successful year. My first resolution is to maintain my 4.0 grade point average. I worked hard throughout the 2012 fall semester to have a perfect GPA and accomplished it. Now that 2013 is here I plan to keep my grades up. Accomplishing this resolution will be difficult due to nearly sixty baseball games and practices throughout this spring semester, but I will continue to push myself and come out on top. This is my top resolution because it will help me achieve going on to a four year college and aid being successful in life. The second resolution I have is being a starter on the Hinds baseball team. Dedication is the key to accomplishing this task. I have to work hard and be the best I can be every day.
