Literature review

McHugh (2002) in his book, Understanding business, listed three types of leadership styles namely autocratic, democratic and laissez-faire. An autocratic leader is defined by McHugh as one who makes decisions without consulting others. A participative/democratic leader is one who consults with his subordinates and discuss with them before making decision. A laissez-faire leader will give free reign to his workers. A laissez-faire is sometimes deemed lazy and inactive in a business but this is not so, they set a standard which employees are expected to adhere, McHugh explains this by saying
“Managers setting objectives and employees being relatively free to do whatever it take to accomplish those objectives”
In a similar study conducted by Griffin (2002) he discovers a new leadership style which he described as transformational and defined as
“Leadership which goes beyond ordinary expectations by transmitting a sense of mission, stimulating learning experiences an inspiring new ways of thinking”

In both studies the authors have highlighted the features of the different leadership styles and how it defines the type of leader you are. In the study I’ll be conducting I’ll be assessing which of the features the…...

Flash Mob Robberies

...Flash Mob Robberies Americans, despite their religion, race, ethnicity, or gender, never gave much thought to the terms like “flash mob robberies” or “organized looting.” However, these expressions have become acknowledge to the American society due to their criminal nature and the alarming frequency in which they take place. Historically, a flash mob was clearly an assembly of people who unexpectedly appeared at the same location at the same time. Now, flash mobs began to incorporate robberies, but they occurred infrequently across the country. Unfortunately, because of the economic collapse, flash mobs have become very notorious and are increasing in numbers in turning into criminal action in attempt to survive in America. Adolescents take advantage of social media, such as Facebook, and Twitter, to organize large group of other adolescents to assemble at a certain time and place. Once assembled, the large groups of delinquents run into a store steal as much merchandise as they can in a very short period of time. This is so the retail merchant does not have time to react. As a result, the once unfamiliar term is no notoriously known amongst all Americans. All across the country, retailers and other Americans have personally witnessed and reported multiple flash mob incidents. Law enforcement officers have recognized the accuracy of the flash mop epidemic and are taking the criminal manner very seriously. There are two important elements which make flash...

...An organization is an organized body of people with a particular purpose especially business organization. In order to maintain a business organization, it involves a lot of process, which include organizational structure, and organizational process. Organizational structure is the vertical and horizontal configuration of departments, authority and job within a company. The most common organizational structure is functional departmentalization. Functional departmentalization organizes work and workers into separate units responsible for particular business functions or areas of expertise. Companies tend to use this structure when they are small or just starting out. An organizational process is the collection of activities that transforms inputs into outputs that customers value. The purpose of an organizational structure is to define the guidelines, parameters and the procedural process necessary for a group to accomplish a main objective. In the bottom line, an organizational structure organizes priorities hierarchically by means of identifying task critical to a group realizing an end goal, which is very important for a success business organization. However, having a good organizational structure is rather important for the organizations.

Amcha Code of Ethics

...called upon to make choices that are right, or perhaps appropriate, given the unique circumstances of the situation. Several legal and ethical issues are common to the counseling profession: confidentiality and the duty to warn or protect, boundaries, transference and countertransference, and dual relationships. Although each is a common theme in the therapeutic process, the situations in which these issues manifest are as different as the clients themselves, and each one requires an ethical decision or a legal action specific to the circumstance. Confidentiality and the duty to warn are critical issues in counseling (Remley & Herlihy, 2001). The American Counseling Association (ACA) (2014) Code of Ethics Standard B.1.c. and Standard I.A.2.a. in the American Mental Health Counseling Association (AMHCA) (2011) obligates counselors to keep client information confidential. Counselors must make exceptions for protecting clients from foreseeable harm (ACA, Standard B.2.a.), and when clients admit to having a communicable and life threatening illness (ACA, Standard B.2.b.). As advocates and protectors, mental health counselors must preserve privacy and simultaneously implement duty to warn or protect when there is foreseeable danger. Understanding the ethical and legal ramifications of duty to warn and protect in conjunction with preserving confidentiality is critical for the safety of the client, for the protection of the counselor's livelihood and the profession.

Self-Assessment Analysis played a part in my answers and scored the lowest for “how involved I am with my job” (Pearson Education, 2008, I.B.2). My Jungian 16-Type Personality was revealed to be an ENTJ (Pearson Education, 2008, I.A.2) on the previously Typology test I was an INFJ. The assessment revealed that I am for diversity, and I have a flexible view of others. The survey did confirm my leadership style of me being task oriented, even with my concern for others I work in a metrics and customer service driven work environment so the goal is always about completing the task and satisfying the customers. Step 1 Part 1: What about me? The first part of the Prentice Hall’s Self-Assessment is titled “What about me?”. The assessment helped to provide insight into the various parts of my personality in the areas of values, attitude, motivations and decision-making (Pearson Education, 2008). On the first assessment I scored highest for conscientiousness and lowest for openness to experience (Pearson Education, 2008, I.A.1). Conscientiousness is a personality dimension that describes someone who is responsible, dependable, persistent, and organized (Robbins and Judge, 2009). My Jungian 16-Type Personality scored me as an ENTJ (Pearson Education, 2008, I.A.2). However, my typology test results had me as an INFJ personality type (Kroeger, Thuesen, and Rutledge, 2009). When I compare the two personality types they are the same in some areas for example INFJ is......

Mob Mentality

...Mob mentality refers to the behavioral tendency of people (or other social animals) to act in unison with the group of which they are a part. This is an evolutionary adaptation that provides the mechanism for collective intelligence, but also explains how morally reprehensible consensus can form. Behaviors ranging from gang rapes and beatings to the extermination of an entire people group. Human beings tend to exhibit very unique behaviors or habits once they’re in a group. Some sociologists call it “herd behavior” but it is more often described as “mob mentality.” Interestingly, it’s not just humans that behave that way. Flocks of birds and herds of animals have all exhibited similar behavior. The word “mob” has many negative connotations. One imagines a wild and aggressive crowd, feeding on each other’s panic (hence the other alternative term “crowd hysteria”). Certainly, sociologists and psychologists studying mob mentality have often focused on things like violent demonstrations or even the madness that can often ensue in evacuations, stampedes and crisis situations. There are also famous cases of people growing violent in something as mundane as a shoe sale. Thus, mob mentality has often become attached to the idea of human selfishness and competitiveness. Sometimes it is linked to desperation, such as people who will fight tooth and nail to access relief supplies, or rioting in the streets because of total terror. However, mob mentality goes far beyond the study...

Coca-Cola India Case for Mob

...Coca-Cola India On August 20, 2003 Sanjiv Gupta, President and CEO of Coca-Cola India, sat in his office contemplating the events of the last two weeks and debating his next move. Sales had dropped by 30-40%1 in only two weeks. On August 5th, The Center for Science and Environment (CSE), an activist group in India focused on environmental sustainability issues (specifically the effects of industrialization and economic growth) issued a press release stating: "12 major cold drink brands sold in and around Delhi contain a deadly cocktail of pesticide residues" (See Exhibit 1). According to tests conducted by the Pollution Monitoring Laboratory (PML) of the CSE from April to August, three samples of twelve PepsiCo and Coca-Cola brands from across the city were found to contain pesticide residues surpassing global standards by 30-36 times including lindane, DDT, malathion and chlorpyrifos (See Exhibit 2). These four pesticides were known to cause cancer, damage to the nervous and reproductive systems, birth defects, and severe disruption of the immune system. After this incidence the brand image of Coca Cola was tarnished and people started avoiding coca cola consumption. Since 2003 following the various allegations and issues such as presence of pesticide residues in its beverages and water resource contamination issues that the soft drink giant faced in India, their community-focused initiatives were further accelerated. To address these issues and to rebuild its......

The Mafia/Mob Influenced American Society as We Know It Today

...The Mafia/Mob Influenced American Society as we Know it Today. Since I was a kid I had an interest in the mafia. This interest may have stemmed from watching the Godfather movies with my father growing up. As we all know, this way of life is a violent lifestyle not conducive to a long and prosperous life but television and movies glorified it to an extent. Through countless hours of reading and research I got more of an understanding of how they came about and why but what I really wanted to know it what kind of influence did they have on the American society? Thesis Prohibition of the 1920s introduced the maturation of the American mafia. The religious left and established political groups influenced and created the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution which made it illegal to produce, sell, transport, and import alcohol. If prohibition influenced the creation of the Mafia what did the Mafia influence and how did it affect American Society? Preview of Main Points I was able to find several areas where the Mafia was able to influence American society as we know it today but; I will only touch on three of them. The music we listen to today was greatly affected by the popularity of jazz being performed in the underground night clubs which were owned and operated by the Mafia. Las Vegas, or “Sin City”, wouldn’t be the city it is today without the funding and early management provided by the Mafia. Finally, crime scene investigation or forensic analysis...

Online Harassment and Cyber Mob

...Online Harassment and Cyber Mobs Even though sexism has been fortunately eradicated in many areas of society, and not something that we noticed in our daily lives, it is unfortunately something that takes place. Women are often objectified throughout the social medias, such as video games, and it can have fatal consequences for the victims. There is no doubt that cyber bullying is a big problem. One of those who couldn’t tolerate it anymore was Anita Sarkeesian. She launched and online fundraising campaign on the Internet, called “Feminist Frequency”, to create awareness of how we use the women as a sexual stereotype in videogames. This is also the theme or topic of the speech, that she held at the TEDxWomen event in 2012. _______________________________ Anita Sarkeeshian begins her speech by telling the audience a little presentation about herself, who she is, and that she for four years has run a video web series on YouTube, about sexism and women’s representation in the social medias. Sarkesshian is a women feminist, and a really independent woman, who also have been punished for her opinion. She is extremely well spoken and organized, and has some amazing points, that she through the speech shows. Her main focus in the speech is the video gaming industry, as she says: “It is no secret that the video game industry boasts some of the most sexually objectified, stereotyped and downright oppressive portrayals of women in any medium“ (Page 1 lines 13-14). The gaming...

Corporal Punishment as a Method of Discipline

...children become more rebellious and are more likely to demonstrate vindictive behavior, seeking retribution against school officials and others in society. (1) A student may cease acting out in class only to continue in other ways. The child or adolescent learns the wrong message, one of the avoidance or escape from getting caught or negative ways of keeping from being caught. This student often will learn techniques that lead to reduced self-control, with negative behavior characterized by more acting out, school absences, malingering, and overt academic revocation. (2) Also, many students are actually physically injured, and case studies of abrasions, severe muscle injury, extensive hematomas, and even death were explored in the research by I.A. Hyman in “Using research to change public policy. . .” as written in a supplement to an issue of Pediatrics in 2006. These injuries prevented students from returning to school for days. (3) Research findings from Dr. S,R. Poole, along with Drs. M.C. Ushokow and Paul Nadar, note that corporal punishment constructs an environment in education that can be described as unproductive, nullifying and punitive. Students feel like victims, and limited sense of confidence and security becomes a part of school environment. (4) What about long-term consequences of corporal punishment? The use of corporal punishment is associated with increased mental health problems including psychological distress, which may lead to anxiety, depression,......

America's Claimed Most Notorious Mob Boss Dies!

...World War I Soldier Maenell Hendricks HIS/120 Amy Arsten February 26, 2012 Upon the outbreak of the Great War, the U.S. enforced a rule of non-intervention, preventing conflict while attempting to negotiate peace. President Woodrow Wilson expressed that the United States was too proud to battle, and commanded Germany to stop the assaults on passenger ships, which Germany obeyed his command. Because President Wilson could not mediate a settlement, he cautioned Germany that the United States would not allow unrestricted submarine combat. This warfare would violate the universal law and American philosophies of human rights. Germany became defiant, and continued with the plan to start submarine warfare anyway. Germany approached Mexico with a deal that if they join forces with them in war against the U.S., they would support them financially, and help them gain back territories of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. These were territories Mexico had lost 70 years ago during the Mexican-American war. President Woodrow Wilson announced the Zimmerman note, which was a telegram intercepted by British Intelligence, declaring war on the United States. This caused an outrage, and gave the U.S. a reason to wage war on Germany and its allies. The United States Army was very small, but grew by 2.8 million from the drafting of American soldiers after the passage of the Selection Service Act.
