Last week our class had to perform our first peer review. That was probably one of the toughest things we’ve done so far. I’m sure some of us were not looking forward to do this. It’s difficult to rank your peers and letting them know why they’re rank that way when everyone brings something different to the table. All in all, the peer assessment review went very well. My reaction to the peer assessment was surprising. Being the oldest in the class I thought it would give me a low result. I thought wrong. The results of the peer feedback did not upset me or make me angry. I didn’t mind at all getting feedback from my peers. As a reservist and having that civilian job gave me the experience on how to accept feedback from my peers, coworkers, and supervisors. Having worked for almost 24 years I understand how to soak it up like a sponge and then applying it to myself, subordinates, or future subordinates. I didn’t think my strength and weaknesses were different from the way my peers perceived me. My strengths and weaknesses define who I am. My strengths help me become a better person and my weaknesses keep me fighting to be that better person. Recognizing my own personal strengths, I am able to build on them and use them towards my advantage. I believe these attributes make you who you are and show your true abilities as a person. We all have strengths and weaknesses, and they differ from one person to another. What I learned from my peers about myself is that they see me as being an older brother. I was willing to give my peers some advice based on some of my past experiences. That been there done that type of person. Will this affect my future behavior? For me it won’t.
With my past experience knowing how to handle certain situations and how to improve on it. In the future, I plan to be a little bit more professional to give guidance,…...

They Say I Say

...The “They say, I say” essay If you have been keeping up with the show “30 Rock” as of late then you probably have very similar views as those who have adopted a rather negative opinion of the character Liz Lemon. However Liz lemon has been judged wrongly and should be seen in higher regard. Her character has evolved into what I can only commend for being phenomenally satisfactory, despite the growing dislike for the direction in which her character seems to be headed. I think it would be nice if the fans of the show could see the subtle life lessons that are being conveyed through the show. 30 rock is a comedy series about the workings of a variety show dubbed “The Girlie Show with Tracy Jordan” told through the voice of its producer Liz lemon. “In defense of Liz Lemon” by Emily Nussbaum strives to shed light on an aspect of the show that not many individuals have realized. After a slew of negative response to the Character Liz Lemon the author aimed to clarify why Liz is not only better than when she first started out but also why her audience find her so repulsive now. Nussbaum explains how in the first season of the show, Liz Lemon was very relatable especially to women of the same age group. She was unlike other female characters at the time which was refreshing. This new take on a female lead attracted countless die-hard fans which could be credited for the shows long run. The author however points out the inconsistency in the belief that Liz lemon...

Science Says There Are 6 Reasons People Say Yes.

...Science says there is 6 reasons people say yes! The Six Principles of Influence ( Six Weapons of Influence) were created by Robert Cialdini, Regents' Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Marketing at Arizona State University. Cialdini identified the six principles through experimental studies: The six principles are as follows: 1. Reciprocity As humans, we generally aim to return favors, pay back debts, and treat others as they treat us. According to the idea of reciprocity, this can lead us to feel obliged to offer concessions or discounts to others if they have offered them to us. One example of this concept was tested with Mints being handed out with the bill at restaurants. Tips increased with server giving more than three mints and telling the customer that for being great customers she gave them extra. Tips increased exponentially. 2. Commitment Cialdini says that we have a deep desire to be consistent. For this reason, once we've committed to something, we're then more inclined to go through with it. For instance, you'd probably be more likely to support a colleague's project proposal if you had shown interest when he first talked to you about his ideas. 3. Social Proof This principle relies on people's sense of "safety in numbers." If you have ever been in a hotel and read the sign suggesting reuse of towels. Hotels learned that by putting a statement saying how many guests reuse towels the number actually increases. “90% of hotel guests reuse......

...Theoretical model and empirical analysis for Brazil under inflation targeting Gabriel Caldas Montes1* Alexandre Curi ** Abstract This paper raises the following hypotheses: to the extent that the monetary authority successively reaches the inflation target and credibility increases, expectations will have more influence on inflation and, thus, the efforts of the monetary authority to reach the inflation target will decrease. Hence, the goal of this work is twofold: 1) a theoretical model is developed to show that when the monetary authority is committed to the goal of price stability, the gain of credibility not only acts by producing a better result in terms of inflation, but also it reduces the volatility of the basic interest rate, and; 2) based on the Brazilian economy, the article provides empirical evidence that the gain of credibility is crucial to reduce the volatility of the basic interest as well as the inflation rate. The findings suggest that credibility plays a key role for the conduct of monetary policy and inflation control.

...AP EH CH. 27---THE DEEPENING OF THE EUROPEAN CRISIS: WW II I. PRELUDE TO WAR (1933-1939) ---the efforts at collective security in the 1920s---the League of Nations, the attempts at disarmament, the pacts and the treaties---all proved meaningless in view of the growth of Nazi Germany and its deliberate scrapping of the postwar settlement in the 1930s ---World War II was largely made possible by the failure of Britain and France to oppose strongly flagrant German violations of the Treaty of Versailles A. The Role of Hitler 1. WW II in Europe had its beginnings in the ideas of Adolf Hitler, who believed that only Aryans were capable of building a great civilization 2. Hitler was a firm believer in the doctrine of Lebensraum which stated that a nation’s power depended on the amount and kind of land it occupied 3. Hitler thought that the Russian Revolution created conditions for Germany’s acquisition of land to its “racially inferior Slavic” east (Mein Kampf spelled out Hitler’s desire to expand eastward and to prepare for the inevitable war with the “Bolshevik Jew-led” Soviet Union) 4. Hitler always returned to his basic ideological plans for racial supremacy and empire as keys to the blueprint for achieving his goals 5. Hitler’s desire to create an Aryan empire led to slave labor and even mass extermination on a scale that would have been incomprehensible to previous generations of Germans (or anybody else......

...They Say/I Say Journal 1 Subject: Freakonomics Chapter 1 “School Teachers and Sumo Wrestlers” They Say: In this chapter the author, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, define the economic as root to pursue of incentives. The author define an incentive as “a means of urging people to do more of a good thing of a bad thing”. Sometimes these incentives are so irresistible that people are driven to obtain them through a bad behavior. In addition the authors describe some circumstances of cheating. There is an analysis of data to detect some cheating patterns. The most prominent cases are included the Chicago public schools teacher who changed answers on their students’ test, and Japanese sumo wrestlers who conspired to discard certain high stakes matches. Basically the main point of this chapter analyzed different scenarios to explain that humans always are looking for incentives. These incentive are categorized as economic, social, and moral. All of this, are explained in a different scenarios starting with the situation of the day care and finalized with the business man who run a bagel business. The author focused at the end explaining that humans are honest even when no one is watching them. I say: I am completely agreed with the ideas described by the author in this chapter related how human behavior depends of the incentives. To better understanding of these behavior the author states that: “economists love incentives....The typical economist believes the world...

Former Ge Ceo Jack Welch Says Leaders Have 5 Basic Traits — and Only 2 Can Be Taught

...beyond them. From our experience, the first essential trait of leadership is positive energy — the capacity to go-go-go with healthy vigor and an upbeat attitude through good times and bad. The second is the ability to energize others, releasing their positive energy, to take any hill. The third trait is edge — the ability to make tough calls, to say yes or no, not maybe. The fourth trait is the talent to execute — very simply, get things done. Fifth and finally, leaders have passion. They care deeply. They sweat; they believe. As you may have figured, positive energy and the ability to energize are pretty hard-wired. They’re basically personality. Similarly, passion feels inborn. Some people just seem to come fully loaded with intensity and curiosity; they naturally love people, life, and work. It’s in them. It is them. Edge and the ability to execute are different. New hires rarely show up with them in polished form, and even middle managers benefit from training in both. But the best teacher for these two traits is trench warfare. That’s because edge and execution are largely a function of self-confidence. You can say yes or no a heck of a lot better when you’ve done it a bunch of times and seen how well decisiveness works. Likewise, only in real world challenges can managers truly feel the power of moving quickly, demanding accountability, and rewarding results. They can also experience how damaging it is not to execute — a mistake most effective......

Say No to Unionization

...sloppy, and un orderly. When you are hiring recruits for a company, you want to make sure that everything is in order, especially when bringing in 15 new individuals. If you hire new employees, the first impression they receive is their orientation. If the orientation is messy, then it will leave a bad taste in their mouths about that company. When you are planning for new hire coming into your company, you want them to have an easy transition, and their experience to be pleasant. If they are uneasy, or are concerned that their best needs are not being met, and they will most likely inform their friends and family that the company is bad to work for, and they will also most likely start to look for a job elsewhere. The case study then says “On May 15, Monica contacted Carl about the training schedule, orientation, manuals, policy booklets, physicals, drug tests, and a host of other issues, which Carl would coordinate for the new hires. Carl assured Monica that everything would be arranged in time.” It seems to me that Monica is entrusting Carl a little too much for him still being new to this position. You want to make sure that as a manager, you are assisting someone new to their job, until they understand how the process works. Carl being new to this job, and this being his first experience with hiring new employees, setting up their orientation, and keeping track of their files, may become overwhelming to him. Monica should ensure that she takes time out of......
