Report from Interview

Work at an airline calls for undivided attention, focus and stamina. Top executives find themselves torn between balancing work and family. While work is important in ensuring employees meet their family needs, it has become increasing important for senior executives to try to strike a balance between the two (Masuda & Chinchilla, 2010). Ability to ensure both sides are well catered for requires careful examination of ones conduct and building a clear time frame. Success may be achieved at workplace through putting more efforts and time. This means less time and personal touch with family members, which may be harmful to the wellbeing of all parties. In the long run, it does more harm than good. Maintaining a balance between work and family is crucial as it will ensure support from family members as one pursues their goals at the working place.

Undergoing a thorough self transformation to achieve a win-win situation will entail time adjustment, more efforts to complete task within given time frame so that time to see ones family is available and is not disrupted (Masuda & Chinchilla, 2010). Not only will the top executive ensure strict adherence to the schedule but will also need to ensure the entire labor force is moving in the same direction, since failure to do so will mean their family time will be consumed solving institutional problems.

An interview with the Chief executive officer of Alaska airline revealed that the main factor necessitating for a balance between work and family is the conflict that emerges when one delves too much in work related activities, and partially or totally becomes absent for the family. Conflict between the two has adverse effects to both the executives and the family members. He stated that a sense of abandonment arises when the…...

Life Stages Interviews and Reports

...Life Stages Interviews and Reports Unexpected Loneliness: Bobbi Hoskins Loneliness is a common issue in any stage of life, however the elderly are more susceptible to it for several reasons; the sudden loss of a spouse, retirement, moving to a new location, and health problems. Loneliness is defined as an unbearable feeling of separateness (Mind infoline, 2012). Loneliness can cause feelings of anxiety, depression, being unloved, and insecurity. There are three basic degrees of loneliness which are, circumstantial, developmental, and internal. Circumstantial loneliness is caused from retiring, moving, losing a loved one; the list goes on and on. Some people retire and they want to be on their own, this is the case for Bonnie. She has always considered herself a loner and she is happy being by herself for several reasons. She likes her freedom, she does not like people telling her what to do, and she does not agree with how some people handle getting old. “They do not like to do stuff.. they just sit on their butts and wait to die.(Appendix B)” These are the people that loneliness takes a hold of and they just want to die, because they feel there is nothing left to do. Developmental loneliness is caused from being in a state of constant despair, and not fully being active in daily affairs. Some people develop loneliness because they do not have anything better to do. As long as the person is doing something they stand a better chance of not getting lonely. In some......

All of the issues help to explain many of the lifestyle changes that adults make over the years. Young Adulthood The first interview conducted focused on the early stage of adulthood. A young woman age 25 by the name of Kelsey was asked a series of questions to help us gain some insight on her stage of development and allow her responses to be analyzed. I began with questions regarding her physical stage of development. I asked Kelsey how she feels about her physical state and what she does to take care of herself. Her response explained that she believes that she is in pretty good health although she does not have to do too much to stay that way. She reported that she eats fast- food a few times a week due to her busy schedule, but she does make time to exercise at least three times a week.

Cled 510 Mentor Interviews: Report

...  Likewise, a leader is in the position to convey the good and buffer the bad that will be coming his team’s way. By protecting those he or she leads from immediate impacts, he or she lets the team focus on execution and what they need to deliver, rather than exposing them directly to sometimes difficult political´ discussions that are being held at the top level of an organization. By freeing the team from needing to invest emotionally in topics that are possibly still undecided or that need refining, the leader sets his or her people free to keep driving towards delivery of plans that were put in place at a certain point in time. If these plans are ultimately changed, the leader can communicate this in a manner that is more refined and buffered. Book: Galatians  Principle: A good leader takes the necessary time to think through strategic next moves. Key Verse: Galatians 1:15-17 (ESV): “But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and who called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone; nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.” Explanation/Illustration of the Principle: Paul had received his calling directly from God through His Son Jesus. Rather than try to figure out who might be able to mentor him to become a successful witness of Christ, Paul withdrew to......

Interview with a Person from a Different Culture

...Abstract This paper will be written in an effort to evaluate the cultural identity of my sister-in-law, which she is of Hispanic ethnicity. This will be an interview, which I will identify the social expectations and values and norms within her society as she was growing up. I will also identify her view of the world shaped by the social movements and educational as well as occupational opportunities which were available to her. Self-Assessment of Hispanic Ethnicity Being culturally responsible means being able to identify bias in yourself and others and being sensitive to systems that contribute to the positive and negative reinforcement of that bias. Being culturally responsive entails being competent enough to guide clients through the process of negotiating the similarities and differences between cultures – and recognizing the effects that those boundaries have on the lives of the individuals we serve. This paper will reflect the cultural identity of a Hispanic woman and how she perceives her own identity and the influences in her life. I think you will be as surprised as I was at just how different those in this culture can be from my Caucasian, small town Iowa, cultural is. When you were born, what were the social expectations for a person of you identity? “Family by far is the most valued part of any Hispanic's life I have ever met. When I say this I mean that in a very different way than anyone outside the......

New Ideas from Dead Economists Book Report

...In reading “New Ideas From Dead Economists” I came away with a different perspective not only on Economics as a whole but also on economists. I found it very interesting that the fiber that made the human being also contributed to the profound ideas of each specific economist and helped form our current understanding of economics. Starting with Adam Smith, in his approach to write a book in “his spare time” gave a full and thorough perspective on the world. For example, when he suggested that people are not motivated only by self-interest but just that they are the most powerful and consistent compared to kindness, altruism or other noble motives. I found it interesting how he examined the way people were and not how he wanted them to be and then he based his theories off of that concrete evidence. I had always thought that Adam Smith believed more like Gordon Geiko that “Greed is good”, this book helped me see that self-interest is simply the most consistent of motivators.. Another economist that I found rather compelling was Maynard Keynes. The simple fact that he struggled to stay out of debt and had creditors coming after him constantly made me chuckle as I imagined this had a big impact on his ideas and theories. I understand better the Keynes theory now and realize that “we are all Keynesian” in a way. One thing I never understood before was how politicians could campaign on spending money without promises to pay it back. This section of the novel helped me......

Well, hiring qualified employees should be the primary focus for a company and organization.
