Difficult Choices The Oxford Dictionary defines globalization as “the process by which businesses start operating on a global scale.” To make this possible free trade and open market agreements are signed, allowing companies to invest in developing countries and also giving them access to a wider and cheaper variety of products. The world is changing constantly and with all the advances of technology, communication with remote places is more affordable and faster. Globalization is happening, even when it has some critics. “The Pew Global Attitudes Project” states “people generally view the growth in foreign trade, global communication and international popular culture as good for them and their families as well as their countries.” However, the negative effects of globalization cannot be ignored. Air pollution is rampant and in developing countries like China, people are dying. Globalization has reduced poverty in 3rd world countries but it has also deteriorated their air quality. Globalization feed the hungry. In developing countries as China, poor people live out of nothing. IN “Poverty Facts and Stats” Anup Shah reports that “more than 3 billion people in the world live on less than $2.50 a day. They people have nothing to lose just because they don’t have anything that is a very serious problem, but in a poor country where there is not a lot of money, and for a lot of them, money has to come from somewhere else. When a country is struggling that much, globalization is a good solution. Not only cheaper products are going to be available, also big companies are going to invest in the country opening great opportunities of employment. The labor force grows and the income too. At least more people are going to be working. When people work and make money a lot of things change. They are going to eat better, get a better shelter, and improve their…...

Difficult People

...Difficult People Marvin D. Cofield Jack Welch Management Institute Professor Ardith Bowman JWI 505 Business Communication 10 Feb 2013 Difficult People  My topic of choice is on “How to deal with difficult people and their decisions even when they are your boss?” The reason I chose this topic is because I’m quite sure I’m not the only one that has had to deal with someone in upper management that is stubborn and difficult to deal with and the decisions that they make just make no sense whatsoever. This paper follows Munter’s Tell/Sell style of presentation (Munter, Ch 5 pp.86). I will attempt to capture the attention of the audience and show how the topic relates to them.   The mental and emotional connection is the level of stress and anxiety most people get from being in the position and how to deal with it. The stress of not being to state the issues to the boss for fear of reprisal. I think this should be an interesting topic to speak on and share my experiences and results. Even if some haven't had the misfortune of ever being in that position, I'm sure just hearing what others have to say on the topic will be beneficial in some way. We have all been there at some point in our lives at one time or another and if you haven’t, consider yourself blessed and very fortunate. Dealing with difficult people. Even if you haven’t been on the job for a real long time, it is very unusual to have not found someone in the workforce that you can consider difficult to deal......

The Choice

...When I was 10, my parents made a choice uproot my family and emigrate to the United States. Little did I know at the time, that this would be one the most important factors that shaped who I wanted to be. Being in a completely foreign country and learning the idiosyncrasies of American culture, I began to understand that the hard decision my parents made wasn't so difficult but to them, seen as a necessity for the future of their four children to succeed. From this, my parents have greatly shaped who I am today and through their actions, given me the basic necessities I needed to create a life greater than I could have ever imagined as a child moving to an unfamiliar place. I was able to learn the value of sacrifice when it came to making a decision to benefit a larger group- in this case, my parents were selfless yet very mindful in the decision to put the future of their family ahead of their own individual goals and wishes. Twenty five years ago, my parents made a choice for our family. They left a familiar life in their homeland and came to the United States where they maintained a small store which helped me learn the fundamentals of small business which I was able to utilize in my roles at larger companies like Colosseum and The Walt Disney Company. This was their sacrifice and I will forever be changed and grateful of this sacrifice....

A Difficult Decision

...A Difficult Decision Megan Melton American InterContinental University Abstract One difficult decision I have made in my life is deciding to go back to school. Before I decided to go back or to find a job, I considered many factors that would be involved. I considered how I would pay for it and how it would affect me and my children. I know that college classes require many hours of studying and work. I had to ask myself whether or not it was worth it to sacrifice those precious hours of time with my children. In the end I decided to take that leap of faith and continue my education. I know that it is going to require time and hard work but in the end it will be worth it. In my life, I have had to make many difficult decisions. Sometimes I made the wrong decisions and choices whereas others I made the correct choice. So far in my life, one of the most difficult decisions that I’ve had to make is the decision to go back to school and to further my education. I considered many things when making this decision. I thought about how this would affect my children and me in the short and long term. As well as how it would affect my financial situation. Firstly, going back to school is what I feel to be a very positive thing. My children are very young and I want to finish my schooling to become a more positive influence on them. Upon finishing all of my courses and accomplishing my goal to get a degree, accepting a position with my degree backing me, will...

Choices

...mature stage. These changes require significant coping skills and the ability of parents to assist and educate their children throughout this process. The responsibilities of reducing long term affects from poor choices fall upon both parent and teenager. As counselors we should be able to assist with parenting skills by discussing with parents that children need and want love and guidance from their parents although their actions may say otherwise. It is imperative that counselors teach parents how to show their children love by being involved in every aspect of their lives. That means spending quality time with them and being able to communicate with them effectively. Parents should not feel uncomfortable discussing any issue with their child. If parents are uncomfortable talking about sensitive subjects such as sex, drug, body image or alcohol, a counselor should work with a parent to ensure they are able to navigate those conversations with ease. Parents should be educated on being supportive of their children and their children’s interests and offer encouragement during the adolescent stage. This will give the child a sense of “knowing that someone cares”. Sometimes as parents, establishing limits and setting boundaries can be a difficult task, but children need this type of structure to assist in maintaining safety both emotionally and physically. As a parent, this role requires listening skills also. Parents should be able to listen to their......

Choices

...Theme and Narrative Elements in the Short Story Did I make the right choice? There are always at least two choices. In the short story ‘The Road Not Taken’, by Robert Frost, 1916; the theme is clearly spelled out as life choices. Living life in the fast lane or living day by day is important. In this short story the last line solidifies that the author chose the right road. There is no rule book to dictate what is right or wrong when speaking in terms of someone questioning and reflecting on whether they have taken the right road for them. “I took the one less-traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Frost, 1916. There is a sense of melancholy in this short story that pulls at my nostalgic heart strings. I wonder while reading whether or not I will be “telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took the one less traveled by.” Frost, 1916. As the plot is built I am drawn to believe that perhaps this is a present situation and I imagine a person standing at the fork of these two paths quietly pondering while weighing the options of which way would be the better choice. The reason I get both a nostalgic and present situation feel is because the story is told in a first person point of view. The story starts off making me envision the previously mentioned image of the person weighting the options. The nostalgic portion of it comes to me towards the end of the story when the author states that he......

Difficult Courses

...Difficult Courses Throughout the years people in schools will take both easy and difficult courses. How do we tell the difference between the tough and easy? To what might be an easy course to some students could be a difficult one for many other, and vise versa. People have different interests, which make a certain classes easier or harder on them. Who is to decide what classes are the best ones for us to take? It is not always that the difficult classes, or even the easiest classes, are the best for us. The courses that people need to take are the ones that are needed for his or her future. Difficult classes could be best for us, but that all depends on what people need. In the four years that students are in high school or college, there are certain classes that they are required to take. Some of these classes could be difficult on the students, but does that mean they will help the students the most? These courses could benefit the students; as in give them more practice. Then again, the students could take the difficult course and fail. Failing the course could stop them from graduating and moving ahead. It all depends on how well they do; if they pass, they move ahead, but if they do terrible, they fail. The classes they are required to take could be easier on others, given those students an unfair advantage. These courses could make or break them. People could take difficult classes, but that does not necessarily mean they will help them with their future. If......

Difficult Conversation

...Handling Difficult Conversations Shaquinna Wilson Walden Unversity Handling Difficult Conversations Introduction Sure at some point have to face the situation to keep a difficult conversation with a friend or family member about a sensitive issue. Sometimes, we face the difficult position of having to tell someone something important knowing that the conversation can be complicated. Everyone faces such situations that can help not only make the situation more bearable for both sides, but also to communicate better (Falcone, Claxton & Marshall, 2014). Discussion In terms of integrity, I have probably made many assumptions about my own standards as a coach, having held responsibilities for professional standards and corruption prevention in different roles / prisons. I have had to handle some situations quite carefully where more senior people have (in my opinion) held less robust principles of integrity than I do. For example I have always struggled with bias on promotion and selection boards and have had to have some difficult conversations where I have not been prepared to compromise my integrity whilst ensuring I don’t commit ‘career suicide’. Even where I agree that a candidate is a good person and can understand the principles of knowing someone’s abilities by observation as opposed to trying to establish them on a 40 minute interview, I cannot help but think that places the onus on being a good selector via interview as opposed to hedging bets......

A Difficult Choice

...when you had difficulty making an important decision. During the course of our lifetimes we make many significant and difficult choices that affect us. These choices affect our personal and professional lives. Therefore, we make these choices with much thought and care. One of the most difficult and important decisions I have made was changing careers. Changing careers at this stage of my life, mid-life, was very difficult. Preparation for my new career required me to resign my job. The former position was providing a major portion of my family's income and most of the medical benefits. Some means of earning a living while preparing for a new career was foremost on my mind during this stage. If I spent to much time and energy pursuing a job to provide a means for supporting my family while retraining, I might not do a sufficient job of retraining for a new career. Another difficulty equally as important as the the financial one was the possibility of failing at a new endeavor or not being able to find a new job. These possibilities made me feel uncomfortable and insecure. If I failed or could not find a new position, what would my family think of me? Failing at a new career would also cause me to lose confidence in myself. These concerns, failure and financial, and not finding a new job made this decision very difficult. The decision to choose a new career was an extremely important one. The sole function of a career is not just......
