just beginning their career for The Washington Post. Through the use of good reporting, investigating skills, and with the help of a secret source known at the time as “Deep throat,” Bernstein and Woodward we’re able to unravel the biggest presidential scandal in the history of the United States, The Richard Nixon Watergate scandal. Without the investigation of Bernstein and Woodward, The Watergate Scandal may have never been brought to light. The book chronicles everything from when Bernstein and Woodward were given an assignment to cover a burglary at the Watergate complex in Washington DC, to the events that led up to Nixon’s State of the Union address about one year from when the Watergate Scandal started to unravel. The book starts off with Bernstein and Woodward getting assigned to a story about a burglary at the Watergate Office Complex in Washington DC. The two were not overly excited to be assigned to the story, as it was meant to be a filler story for the paper, but something in particular struck the two of them about the story (Bernstein, 14). The burglary took place at the Democratic National Convention at the Watergate Complex. The burglary resulted in the arrest of five men who were charged with breaking and entering. Bernstein and Woodward went above and beyond their reporting duties and thought that there was something up with the burglary, especially because it occurred at the Democratic National Convention, so they continued to investigate the story. As the two were investigating the matter, President Nixon went on public record stating that the White House had no involvement with the burglary (Bernstein, 27). However, the two looked deeper into the White House’s involvement, and found some loose ends. After Woodward gave a call to E. Howard Hunt, a CIA officer, he disappeared, which brought up a lot of questions for the two reporters(…...

Good Boss vs Bad Boss

...The Characteristics of a Good Boss vs. a Bad Boss According to a U.S. survey, 49% of employees want to fire their boss if they could (GALLUP Management Journal). In every state, there’s a hierarchy of management that keeps the operation running smoothly. A Florida State University did a study in 2007 and according to this study, 40% of workers think they work for an unsuccessful boss (management-issues.com). A large part of having a positive experience at work could depend on whether you have a good, successful boss (journalreview.com). Working as a boss is not easy, and a good boss is even more difficult because there are so many qualities that a boss must have to run a successful business. Leadership and management skills, personality, and a good work ethic are characteristics that a person must have to be a successful boss. A good boss will make their employee’s feel calm, appreciated, and inspired, whereas a bad boss will make you feel uneasy and resentful. A good boss must have leadership skills. A good leader must have the strength to work toward their vision, as well as to direct their actions, and the team’s actions toward the goal. A leader has a clear, vivid picture of where the team and they need to go, as well as a firm hold on what success looks like and how it needs to be achieved. Leaders are able to train others and be honest when an employee is not performing at their best. Leaders lead employees in a way that their talents and skills are utilized...

Good Boss/Bad Boss

...Week 7 – Appendix E Comparison and Contrast Draft – Good Boss/Bad Boss Do you enjoy your job? Do you look forward to going to work every day? Does work give you a sense of accomplishment? Hopefully it does because you may not be aware but; the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) establishes that a traditional full time employee works 40 hours a week which means you spend 24% of your week at work. The National Sleep Foundation recommends an adult get seven to eight hours of sleep daily which means you spend another 24% of your time sleeping. This means we have the remaining 52% to spend with family and friends per week/year. This means that making your place of work your second home and your co-workers your extended family is very important. Now, you may have an idea why is so important to be happy at work considering we spend a quarter of our time there. I know it seems very easy but, the reality is that most of us at some point in our careers have come against a road block someone that just does not seem to get it or thinks his or her entire job is making work difficult. The managing style of a boss can have a great impact in our careers and our personal life. Although it seems a good and a bad boss do not have any similarities, they do have a few which makes even harder to understand the reason for the differences. Both a “Good Boss and a Bad Boss” have the same exact position the same roles and responsibilities and most of the time the same number of......

Good Boss vs Bad Boss

...Good Boss vs. Bad Boss There are many traits that a boss needs; like communication, respect and mentoring. These traits and others will decide whether you are a good boss or bad. It will depends on how one looks at it, are you an employee or a boss. Bosses will come and go, however the good ones will always stand out from the bad ones. At the same time, ironically, it’s easy to spot both extremes, good and bad. Everyone has a difference of opinion on what makes a good boss. I have worked for several bosses and the good ones outweigh the bad. When treated with respect and understanding an employee feels good about the job they are doing, and the boss. Communication and respect are important keys to any relationship, and the relationship between a boss and an employee is no exception. Because employees are the backbone of any business, a bad employee can negatively impact a business. Good bosses teach, train, and listen to their employees when they make suggestions, as they come from personal experience with customers or with a work situation that they have found that needs attention. Communication is key in a manager and employee relationship, understanding each other is key, questions need to be asked if needed to make sure everyone is on the same page. An employee’s perspective differs from the perspective of a boss, therefore meaningful discussion between both parties can bring positive changes and this will promote on a dialog of......

When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough. When you don't do it, you're lazy. When your boss doesn't do it, he's too busy.   When you make a mistake, you're an idiot. When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human. When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority. When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.

...Book Review | Book Review | Good Boss, bad boss: How to be the best... and learn from the worst | Ottawa University Organizational Consultation Skills | Erin Smith | 11/18/2012 | | Good Boss Bad Boss wrote by Robert Sutton is the research and stories put together about good and bad bosses, and behaviors in the workplace that led to their successes and failures. This book gives insight and self awareness as part of an ongoing process toward becoming a great boss or leader. Suttons work was directed by three basic questions: His work is directed by three basic questions: If you want to be a Good Boss, what do you need to accomplish day after day, If you have a Bad Boss, what can you do about it, and In short, what are the hallmarks of a Good Boss, and worst flaws of a Bad Boss? (Sutton, 2010) In the beginning of the book Sutton takes a look at having the right mindset. Being a good boss creates a healthy environment. What is more, a good boss has "more impact on engagement and performance than whether their companies are rated as great or lousy places to work" (Sutton, 2010). Sutton points out that “the leaders of an organization still matters more than the other bosses.” (Sutton, 2010) Sutton points out many points, but one strong point that is a focus is that bosses matter. Sutton stated, “Bosses matter, especially to their immediate followers and in small teams and organization.” He points out that bosses need to act as if they are in control even......

...Difference right Good Bosses v. Bad Bosses: Know the Difference By Dennis McCafferty | Posted 2012-02-15 Email this article Email 0 0 Google +0 0 Very few people in this world answer to no one, and knowing who you're working for can make the difference between having a positive work experience and wanting to quit for good at quitting time. How can you tell if you've got a micromanager or a genuine team leader who's interested in the success of his or her team? In "Real Leaders Don't Boss: Inspire, Motivate and Earn Respect from Employees and Watch Your Organization Soar" (Career Press/available now), author Ritch K. Eich outlines ten "good boss/bad boss" scenarios, many of which you probably recognize from bygone gigs. As you advance in your own career, Eich contends, stay mindful that real leaders aren't born; rather, they evolve over time, learning through trial and error. Not ever bad boss, he says, is destined to stay a bad boss. Now founder/president of Eich Associated, Eich has held leadership positions at Stanford University Medical Center, Blue Shield of California and the University of Michigan, among other institutions. He also has served in the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, NATO (South), the Pacific and Atlantic Fleets (Commands), as well as other joint commands.

...W. D. Ross PHIL 245 – D4A3 General Ethics Emilia C. Coleman Benedictine University April 24, 2013 Abstract According to Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (2012) on W. D. Ross, “Sir William David Ross made significant contributions to the translation and interpretation of the works of Aristotle and to moral philosophy. His work in ancient philosophy, especially his various commentaries on Aristotle, is still considered to be of the highest caliber. Many believe that Ross's work in this area is his most valuable contribution to philosophy. However, his main writings in moral philosophy are of lasting if not equal value. His The Right and the Good is arguably one of the most important works of moral philosophy published in the twentieth century” (p. 1). This essay reviews ethical pluralism. Ross contends that there is plurality of irreducible moral rules that are basic in moral thought.  W. D. Ross Ross argues there is no one single moral principle or rule. Instead, Ross thinks we can make moral betterment by learning more of our moral duties, and doing our best at balancing conflicting understanding and values. According to Ross review of Utilitarianism, which Ross considers has limited aspects of the relationships between people: the relationship of harmer to harmed and the relationship of beneficent to beneficiary.  Ross advances that we have self-evident prima facie moral duties, and intrinsic value. These duties are “prima facie” because they can be......

...Good Boss vs. Bad Boss Cherie "Stacy" Martin COM/170 Elements of University Composition and Communication I January 28, 2012 Deidra Powell-Wallace Good Boss vs. Bad Boss There are many aspects of becoming a boss but , it is the way you present yourself, that determines of you are a good boss or a bad boss. When you think of a boss, how would you define them as a good boss or a bad boss? A good boss is one that has respect for everyone she would be understanding, knowledgeable, caring, and a good solid leader. To become that leader she would have great organizational skills, which include setting a realistic goal for the day. Make a systematic plan as to what is the most important to the least important thing to do for the day, initiate your plan by delegating it out to your employees, and follow up throughout the day to make sure you are training and teaching your employees. This will help them create and teach them how to achieve a goal by the end of the day. Always be prepared for the unexpected, but still maintain your goal. A bad boss is one that has no respect, no knowledge, does not like her job and has no concept of how to plan a day’s work or even reach a goal. She would be the type of boss that expects you to know what to do, then if you mess the project up you get yelled at or even are fired. When it was no fault of yours it was because your boss is not a leader at all. She may come to work late and want the employee to do all the work.......

Boss

...usually tapped out on time and this becomes a “nice to have” rather than “must have” conversation. However, unless you see it as a “must have,” say adios to some of your best people. Top talent isn’t driven by money and power, but by the opportunity to be a part of something huge, that will change the world, and for which they are really passionate. Big companies usually never spend the time to figure this out with those people. 3. Poor Annual Performance Reviews. You would be amazed at how many companies do not do a very effective job at annual performance reviews. Or, if they have them, they are rushed through, with a form quickly filled out and sent off to HR, and back to real work. The impression this leaves with the employee is that my boss — and, therefore, the company — isn’t really interested in my long-term future here. If you’re talented enough, why stay? This one leads into #4…. 4. No Discussion around Career Development. Here’s a secret for most bosses: most employees don’t know what they’ll be doing in 5 years. In our experience, about less than 5% of people could tell you if you asked. However, everyone wants to have a discussion with you about their future. Most bosses never engage with their employees about where they want to go in their careers — even the top talent. This represents a huge opportunity for you and your organization if you do bring it up. Our best clients have separate annual discussions with their employees — apart from their annual or......

Good Boss

...7 Characteristics of a Great Boss The weekend is over and here we are, hello Monday and your boss has already started the morning off on a bad note. You feel like telling your boss “I quit” because her appreciation for anything or anyone does not exist. When was the last time you heard the boss say “great job, thank you for reporting in today, have a great evening; see you tomorrow”? These few simple words make a world of a difference. To hear the words “thank you” can modify your outlook of quitting or wanting to stay. Making that judgment varies on the person you work for. A noble boss is one who provides training and leadership to their personnel; however, some bosses are less efficient in their supervisory methods and procedures. To define boss - one who guides or oversees employees and exercises authority and control. Their responsibilities may include insuring the work is completed; policies and protocols are followed, and offer the crucial training to achieve these duties (Wikipedia, 2015). They have the ability to employ new workers and fire those that do not measure up. How responsibilities are conducted can be the distinction between a virtuous boss and an immoral boss. The personality of whether a boss is measured bad or good is contingent on the perception of the employee. A respectable boss directs his employees by assigning work based on an individual’s strengths. They take time to acquire what skills the employees have and in what way they can best be......

Introduction In my term paper I want to discuss if the nature phenomenons in the short story “A Lamp at Noon” written by Sinclair Ross (1908-1996) have such a loom large that they can be seen as a protagonist. During my research I found the statement: (D)ie enge Verbindung von Mensch und natürlicher Umwelt, welche in ihren extremen klimatischen Verhältnissen [...] immer wieder übermächtig und indifferent grausam gegenüber den ums […] Überleben kämpfende Farmersleuten, ja beinahe als >Protagonist< erscheint. (Gross 158) I found that point of view very interessting and that is way I will discuss this theses. A protagonist is “the main character in a play, film/movie or book [...]” (Wehmeier) Even though the nature phenomenons can’t be the protagonist as such because they are not represented by a character, they have an important situation in the short story. Obvious is that......
