Dealing with a Problem Being a parent has given me responsibilities that I didn’t have as a young adult, in my early twenties. I am thirty-one with three young children four and under. At the moment I have three children by three different women, with three different personalities. I have a four year old son that lives in Dayton, Ohio, a three year old son that lives outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a one year old daughter that lives here in Cincinnati. Surprisingly, I see my son that lives in Dayton more than any of my children. If it was up to me, I would spend an equal amount of time with all my children but the mothers make it difficult for me to do so, so I call and talk to them as much as possible. Let’s begin with my youngest daughter’s mother. She is thirty-two, my daughter is her first child, and she is one. She is very over-protective and won’t let her out of here sight at the moment. Since we broke up last November, I’ve only been able to come see her on the weekends. Since she is a school teacher be off on the summer months has given me an opportunity to see her during the week. But now that I’m dating someone else she has not been answering my calls so I can visit. I see myself having to go apply for child support so I can receive visitation privileges. One of my close friends told me that she just wanted to have my child and would have nothing to do with me thereafter; I’m beginning to believe that. The last time we spoke, she brought up me signing over my parental rights, that not ever going to happen. Next, we have my three year old sons’ mother, Ms. Bradford. She is twenty-six; my son is also her first child too. I met her while she was a student at the University of Cincinnati. She was a very independent individual; she is the type of woman that has a problem being number two to anything. By me…...

Dealing with Ambiguity

...Dealing With Ambiguity.. Early in my career at Sepracor one of the leadership values the company mentioned but Never really emphasized, was a “tolerance for ambiguity”. Ambiguity is an area that I’m always try to strengthen my approach..I’ve described in the paragraphs to follow my own personal recipe in dealing with such. There was never any coaching on how to develop such a capability… Over the years, however, I have come to appreciate how important this skill can be for a leader and learned how to develop it as strength. Wikipedia defines “ambiguity tolerance” as “the ability to perceive ambiguity in information and behavior in a neutral and open way.”  I prefer a more active definition, so I consider a tolerance for ambiguity to means“planning and executing appropriate actions in light of limited information.”  The emphasis is on being able to move forward in spite of limited or conflicting information, as opposed to just “neutrally” recognizing that such a situation exists. Ambiguity is all around us, whether it is in the form of uncertain business or economic conditions, unclear job descriptions or expectations, or vague corporate strategies. Today’s economic environment, which some economists have taken to calling The Great Ambiguity, presents an extreme case of an uncertain outlook.  Your nature and upbringing can shape your natural tolerance for ambiguity.  Education and early career experiences also play a major role. For example, accountants tend to have......

Dealing with Fraud

...Dealing with Fraud Joseph B. Amah Professor Dr. Wanda E. Allen HSA 515 Law and Health Care System Strayer University Delaware County Campus June 18, 2013 Abstract Fraudulent behaviors have deep rooted history in most American organizations, including medical institutions. There is no doubt, therefore, that one of several ways an administrator can succeed as a Chief Nursing Officer (in a facility wrecked by news of abject corruption and empirical fraudulent activities) is being knowledgeable about these historical facts and taking corrective actions. Necessarily, any report of dishonest behaviors such as the one relating to the subject of this paper, will be addressed by a more appropriate applications of provisions of the False Claim Act (as amended in 1986). Due to the inherent risk associated with reporting corrupt corporate behaviors, the FCA regulations entitle whistle blowers to an attractive percentage of funds retrieved as results of qui tam suits. Predicated on these statutory protections, this writer will examine and evaluate the effects of qui tam in the healthcare industry, devise procedures for admissions at medical facilities and subsequently recommend genuine corporate integrity programs with a view of abating or mitigating frauds in these institutions. In conclusion, a plan will be drawn up to protect patients’ information pursuant to applicable federal and state laws. Evaluate how the Healthcare...

Dealing with Conflicts

...NAME: Manjusha Natarajan Email ID: mnataraj@andrew.cmu.edu Video Write-up on “Dealing with conflict” “Dealing with conflict” is an interesting video that starts with a conflict between two guys in a movie theatre where other guys come and join them and it gets chaotic. The video portrays various negotiating styles to resolve conflict in an interactive manner. According to the video, we begin to experience conflict when our concerns are threatened and every individual has a different style of acting on it. These styles can be majorly categorized into five types on the basis of two inherent characteristics i.e. “assertiveness” and “cooperativeness” as explained below: First style: Avoiding conflict When your position is to not to take a position in the conflict, then you belong to the category “avoiding conflict”. People who always try to avoid conflict are neither cooperative nor assertive. According to me, this style does not solve any purpose. So, it’s best to avoid avoiding. But in emotional situations, its better to avoid conflict at that point in time. Second Style: Accommodate When an individual is more cooperative than assertive, then he just accommodates himself to the whims of the other person and more often than not, satisfies other party’s concerns at his/her expense. This is not an ideal way of negotiating since one will not win anything from the conflict and will be walked all over. People take advantage of individuals who follow this style in a......

Dealing with Stress

...Viktor Frankl once said, “Man can preserve a vestige of spiritual freedom, of independence of mind, even in such terrible conditions of psychic and physical stress.” Dealing with stress is not the easiest thing to do, but to overcome it, one must first look at what causes stress, and then how to deal with it. What is most times thought to be the main cause of stress is only a small percentage of the true things that cause stress. Outdoor leaders are faced with stress everyday, and it comes in many different forms. The job of a responsible leader is to recognize that stress, whether it be with himself, some one else, or the entire group, and assist in relieving it as soon as possible and in the best manner available. Physical danger appears to cause most stress in the outdoors, but it is truly the ordinary things that cause the most stress and are the toughest to handle. It is not the most obvious and dramatical situations that cause us stress but rather the everyday trivial proceedings that seem to bring about the most stress. There are many factors that cause stress. Everything from ignorant people to poor planning and disorganization can inflict stress on a person. It’s difficult to list or describe the exact situations that cause stress because of the fact that it’s different for each and every person. Each person has their own pet peeves and annoyances, so it’s not the specific things, but rather the ideas of what causes stress that are of more importance. Nonetheless,...

Dealing with Death

...Augustine Dealing with Death “A Friend’s Death” in the book “Confessions,” written in Hippo in 397, pretty clearly identifies what this portion of the text encompasses. The excerpt begins with Augustine’s recurrence of confusion with God; watching his friend suffer so intensely makes him wonder why God doesn’t divinely intervene to end his misery. This leads to a reflection on his recent dark days and more ambiguity with God’s presence. While unconscious, Augustine’s friend receives a baptism that Augustine is sure he would not have preferred if mentally present. With this in mind, Augustine pokes fun of it when his friend comes to, which is seen as repulsively unforgiveable, and threatens to end their friendship. Not long afterwards, the friend passes, which leaves no time for reconciliation for the two. This leads Augustine descending into a deep depression where constantly reminders of his loss lie and ultimately his only relief is found through weeping. Although this time period was extremely devastating to Augustine in the moment, do you think the reborn St. Augustine looks back on this memory as more of a weight off of his shoulders than a devastating loss while writing the selection? In the beginning sentences of the selection, Augustine goes into detail about the diminishing condition of his ailing friend. He goes into depth when describing his friend’s pain, stating that he was “convulsed with fever, lying insensible in a lethal sweat and given up for......

Dealing with Change

...Dealing with Change: I must accept that change it is inevitable; however, we are expect that everything we do remain the same. I like that most of my dealings at work remain the same. If it is up to me and I am in control I will make sure that things remain unchangeable and the rest of the things will be easy enough to do. I know this is no good for me and for the rest of the team. For me is possibly an easy way to accomplish my objectives and mission, but how I can adjust to changes if I am not able to accept changes that are going to occur. If I am not prepared then the objectives will be unfinished and the mission will not be accomplished. The story of “Who Moved My Cheese?” reminds me of how complaisant I am with I do. As a person officer and leader I should be able to be ready for changes. If am that leader and supervisor I should leading my troops and Agents in a way that can prepare them for the situations that will arise within our job. I understand that there should be an order to conduct business; however, there should be a way to adapt to any given situations and spontaneous ways of conducting business. What I have to understand is that changes will always occur. So the way I used to move from point A to point B might be closed and I will need to take a detour. In preparation for any changes, I should know what alternate routes exist to reach my destination. In order to stay in the ball game I should be looking at all directions and monitor the......
