At Home Depot I notice that complexities occur mainly in accordance with one’s self concept or how we as communicators think about ourselves or what we conceive. I notice this especially as a cashier when interpersonally communicating with my customers during the checkout process. During my three shifts of observation I began to organize or categorize customers into the four different windows present in the Johari 's Window. Customers I demonstrated characteristics that would define them as communicators in all four windows (the “Open Self”, the “Blind Self”, the “Hidden Self”, and the “Unknown Self”). Customers that I categorized into the “Open Self” where extremely talkative and open about their lives imperfections and perfections.
There were people from different backgrounds and ethics believes. The group varies from college graduates to some high school dropouts. I was not as opened minded that people with corporate jobs visits this kind of meeting, therefore I was amazed at the high level of members that function at there work place being a addict to alcohol and they approach used. During my group session I was focused on what the leader was teaching the addicts. They read step eight from their book.
I became very close with one of the Resident Assistants on my floor because it just happened that we would always run into each other in the hallway whether it was 4pm or 2am. We would just sit in the corridor and talk for sometimes hours with other residents joining in on the conversation. While I’ve tried to connect with all of the RAs in the dorm, some just don’t spend a lot of time in our community which makes it hard for them to have a strong positive influence on the residents. If I become an RA I will lead my residents by example. One of my close friends from Pegram is also applying to be an RA and we are both very close with the RAs in Pegram who plan to return next year.
The meeting was Co LED buy an intern working towards their masters in social work. There was only a co-leader due to it being at a learning experience for the intern to be able to dissipate in leading support group. The group leaders could prepare for each term that the group conversation took. They had plenty of knowledge on the subject and the stages and which most caregivers and their loved ones go through. To ground rules were set at the beginning of the meeting one everybody participates two everybody has a turn to speak on each topic openly and be
Edges are names for the experience of confinement, for the limitations in awareness, for the boundaries of your own identity. Going over an edge is always an immense experience; one feels that his identity is changing, confused, lost or challenged.
In these environments, change and integration is a challenge (Greenberg, 2009). These factors breed personnel impatience, conflict and ineffectiveness, all issues prevalent at your
Geographers like Relph (1976), Seamon (1980) and Tuan (1997) discuss that this old notion of identity soon became problematic because people saw huge change in the geography. They further argue that people are not fully free in their lives, in fact, they are closed in an unseen cage they are caged physically, environmentally, mentally and emotionally. According to them there is a bond between outside ambiance of a world and individuals inside world. This geography does not accept the idea of fixed identity anymore. So this postmodernist idea rejects the traditional idea of fixed identity.
The Conscious Contact group meetings are open to the public and the meeting schedule is published online on the Inter Group Alcoholic Anonymous of New York website. There are plenty of group meetings held in all five boroughs of New York City and in various neighborhoods to make it accessible for all. When walking into the room I felt extremely nervous and conscious of myself and I kept thinking of being as unobtrusive as possible in my observations to not offend anyone in the group or disrupt the group dynamic with my presence as a foreigner. However, I was shocked by the atmosphere of warmth, togetherness and openness that the group had and everyone was quite welcoming of my presence and had no trouble introducing themselves to me or having me observing the group and taking
On Monday, both Mr. Levine and our paralegal were gone, so it was just my on-site mentor, her husband (who was recruited to help out), and me in the office. For a large portion of the day, I was on the computer and answering phone calls. The phones weren 't too crazy, thankfully. My main purpose for being there was to help my on-site mentor as much as possible. I don 't know how to do even half of what the paralegal does, but I knew enough to help with standard office stuff, like scanning papers and drafting subpoenas to be sent out (mostly for personal injury cases, but for family law cases as well).
I helped make sure the members running got where they needed to be and escorted them from place to place. Also, before the members gave their speeches I sat in the black box with them listening to their speeches and making sure they weren’t doing anything they weren’t supposed to. FCCLA is a big part of my life. It has made me who I am as a person. I have learned many life skills like problem solving, leadership skills, communication, and how to help in my community.
I had to collect information for John Hancock 's all staff center and organize it so that my Boss can see where to make changes. Information must be brief and organized to better manage your time. I held a notebook at meetings and always tried to keep up with what was being said. If I stay on top of collecting enough data I can make better and bigger contributions . I learned to you note online and it is a great tool here at John Hancock since messages through sametime erase overtime you can simply write and save it on note.
