The Legacy of Ho Chi Minh

...The Legacy of Ho Chi Minh Vietnam is a country which has suffered a lot of turmoil, both political and regional, over the years. After gaining independence from the Chinese in 938 AD, successive Vietnamese dynasties ruled the nation while expanding geographically and politically into Southeast Asia, until the French colonized the nation into of a federation of states called Indochina, which consisted of North, Central and South Vietnam, along with Cambodia in the 19th century. During such turmoil, Ho Chi Minh was born in Hoang Tru village of French Indochina on May 19, 1890. His birth name was Nguyen Sinh Cung, but he was more popular with other names. After completing his primary education, Ho travelled to the city of Hue and attended the Franco – Vietnamese academy. Post-graduation, at the age of 21, Ho obtained a job as a cook aboard a French steam ship, and travelled to France. He later travelled through various parts of Europe, US and other countries. While in France, he was introduced to Communism, and became involved in leftist and anticolonial activism. Influenced by the communism ideas, he started the Association for Annamite Patriots, an organization composed of Vietnamese nationals living in France who opposed the French colonial occupation, and later became part of the French Communist party in 1920. He also started a journal to serve as a platform for anti-colonial activists to express and disseminate their views about the French colonial regime.......

Decision Style Making

...eciDsion Making Styles Decision making style basically depends on managers' approach to decision making. Decision making style propose that people differ in two dimensions when they approach decision making. The first is an individual's way of thinking and second is individual's tolerance for ambiguity. On the basis of the way of thinking and tolerance for ambiguity, decision making styles may be classified as directive, analytic, conceptual and behavioral. 1. Directive Decision Making Style Managers who use directive decision making style have low tolerance for ambiguity and they rational in the way they think. They are very logical, efficient and take quick decisions within a short time. They assess few alternatives and also consider limited information while taking any decision. Basically such managers use their logic and idea while taking decisions. 2. Analytic Decision Making Style Managers using analytic decision making style have much greater tolerance for ambiguity and rational way of thinking. They want more information before making a decision and also consider more alternatives. Such managers are more careful decision makers as they consider factual and detailed information before taking any decision. They have the ability to adapt or cope with unique situations. 3. Conceptual Decision Making Style Managers using conceptual decision making style have high tolerance for ambiguity and have intuitive in their way of thinking. They  look at many......

Decision Making Styles

...Democratic decision making is when the leader gives up ownership and control of a decision and allows the group to vote. Majority vote will decide the action. Advantages include a fairly fast decision, and a certain amount of group participation. The disadvantage of this style includes no responsibility. An individual is not responsible for the outcome. In fact, even the group feels no real responsibility because some members will say, "I didn't vote for that.". Lack of group and personal responsibility seems to disqualify this style of decision making; however, the democratic style does have its place in business. Autocratic decision making is when the leader maintains total control and ownership of the decision. The leader is also completely responsible for the good or bad outcome as a result of the decision. The leader does not ask for any suggestions or ideas from outside sources and decides from his or her own internal information and perception of the situation. Advantages include a very fast decision, and personal responsibility by the leader, for the outcome. If an emergency situation exists, the autocratic style is usually the best choice. The disadvantages are varied and sometimes include less than desired effort from the people that must carry out the decision. If the employee is personally affected by the decision but not included when the decision is made, morale and effort may or may not suffer. It is not always predictable. If the outcome for the decision is......

Decision Making Style

...1. What are your highest and lowest rated styles? My highest style for decision-making is Directive, where I have low tolerance for ambiguity but I am efficient, rational, and logical in the way I think. I am focused on short term and quick to make decisions with minimal information and not carefully analyzing other alternatives. My lowest style would be behavioral, where someone with this style will work well with others, are open to suggestions, and are concerned about the achievements of their team. They generally try to avoid conflict and place importance on their acceptance by others. Which as me I do not care really to be accepted by others, I want my work done fast and right the first time. I have always been told “Why do anything at all if you don’t do it right the first time.” 2. Do you think the assessment results are accurate? Evaluate the results and give at least 2 examples to confirm or deny the assessment’s analysis of both your highest and lowest rated decision-making styles. I think the assessment is pretty much right on point for me at this time, in the past it would not be this way. I use to be very conceptual on my styles which I am still on some things, and now I am still that way on some of my decisions with other jobs or at home. Now, I am quick to make a decision like when at work with Toys R Us as a front floor manager I have to be quick to make decisions on how I have to handle customers who had a problem with either another worker or the......

Decision Making Style

...Re: Self-assessment of decision-making style ______________________________________________________________________________ Based on the five basic decision-making styles I do not think that I abide to one style. I believe I use the “thinker” and “controller” approach to decision making. Thinkers are known to be the toughest to persuade. They are impressed with arguments that are supported by data and when making decisions they need as much information as possible. Thinkers are adverse to risk and like to take their time when making a decision. “Controllers” are similar to “thinkers” in many ways in that they hate uncertainty and tend to focus on facts. I use both the “thinker” and “controller” style however; I use the “thinker” approach more often. When it comes to making important decisions I want to know as much information as possible and I need to know all the risks that could happen. Also, I do not work well when there is uncertainty or ambiguity. I like to know all the risks and benefits upfront before I make my decision however I never make unilateral decisions. I always like to talk through and weigh my options as well as listen to other perspectives. The best way for someone with less authority than me to approach me about a particular topic would be to explain why this topic is of interest and who it affects. For example, if this request is coming from a staff member in my department, I would need to have as much information as......
