As shown by the tests score, we can see that Myer-Briggs gives us idea of what kind of person we are but in order to determine meaningful relationship among different types of personalities, the big five test is required. It also shows that our traits score can also lie between the two personality
In my own organization, this seems to be true in terms of director level positions. While the large majority of nurse manager positions are held by women, 40% of our Directors of Nursing are men. Furthermore, female nurses continue to be paid less than men, in all areas of nursing (Jiminez, 2015). Shelley spoke to this issue in her post on gender and leadership when she mentioned that her professors in nursing school commented that having more men in nursing was a great thing as it would legitimize the profession as well as increase
Cognitive Competence is an essential components related to leadership quality. The definition of Cognitive Competence would be “...critical thinking and creative thinking as the core cognitive competence...Critical thinking refers to reasoning and making inferences, and creative thinking means stretching one 's spectacles, evaluating multiple ideas and alternatives, and generating novel and practical ideas.” (Sun & Hui, 2012) Cognitive competence is used in adaptation process to achieving equilibrium in mind. Based on Piaget’s cognitive theory, he suggested one will go through adaptation process and this applies to all four stages of his cognitive development stage. In the adaptation process, there are 5 stages which are assimilation, equilibrium,
A personal financial advisor is someone who takes his or her client’s money goals and devise plans to achieve those goals. Considered to be a part of the middle class, financial advisors wages average $89,160 a year (“Personal”, 2015). In college, students take a variety of courses to help prepare them in the economic world, and after college, they take exams to test their skills. If they pass the exam, students become certified to be a personal financial advisor. Most financial advisors never stop learning and growing in their career as they strive to become successful business owners, yet this job is only for those who are willing to accept challenges and help their clients thrive.
The glass ceiling has said to effect those females at the top of the ladder by creating barriers to women’s advancement (Cotter, 2001). In the article “The Glass Ceiling Effect” (2001), Cotter describes that the obstacles and discrimination that create the glass ceiling and that they are “unseen, yet unbreakable” (2001). This Glass Ceiling is inside of most Fortune 500 companies in the USA. It was until 1999 that Carleton Fiorina broke through and became the first CEO in a Fortune 500 company (Cotter, 2001). While some things have changed since 1999, there is still a shortage of women in leadership roles in business due to the prejudice is shown to women.
The social environment that surrounds us could impact how we think, feel and behave in our daily lives. Bandura(1977) emphasizes the role of social factors in the development of the personality and how these factors combine to create a global self-concept. How we feel as a person will be gradually shaped through the different kinds of social environments, and eventually forming a self-recognition attitude called self-esteem, which is similar to the self-confidence. Social factors plays an important role in this shaping process, but genetic and other factors also contritube in forming it. Nathaniel Branden, the Canadian–American psychotherapist, had mentioned that the self-esteem is the key to success in life.
As stated previously, challenging opportunities and the chance to make a difference motivate me, I tend to run towards those prospects opposed to less challenging ones. Taking on the Executive MBA program at George Mason University, at this current time is an example of that. 360 Assessment In 2012, I enrolled in Stephen R. Covey’s course, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This course was a week-long and went into a detailed discussion on what Covey considered the seven habits of highly effective people, and a 360-feedback Benchmark report was used to rate my personal and interpersonal effectiveness. I had 26 people contribute feedback (self, 2 supervisors, 10 peers, and 13 direct reports) which would be useful to me within my organization and in my personal life.
Maslow's Hierarchy is a five tier model of the basic human needs. Maslow thought that people were motivated to achieve certain needs, and that some needs were more important than others. The five tier model can be divided into two separate categories, Growth needs: Transcendence, self actualization, aesthetic needs, cognitive needs, and Deficiency needs: esteem needs, love and belonging needs, safety needs, physiological needs. Maslow believed that individuals must lower their deficit needs, before moving n to the higher level growth needs. This paper will describe that five tier model, and it will give an in depth analysis on what types of characteristics that are commonly found in the people who achieve those needs.

One of the core values posted on Zappos website is “Build a positive team and family spirit” (Zappos.com). To conclude, the ethical leadership theme has dramatically increased in relevancy these days. Interesting fact was introduced by Associate Dean of the Daniel’s College of Business - Dr. Barbara Kreisman (2011); before the Enron episode very few Universities were teaching “Ethics”, but after the information about Enron began to break, many universities changed their curriculum in favor of making this course required for all students to share some knowledge of corporate behavior and business ethics with individuals graduating from academic programs. Through the examples provided in this blog and research of others, there is no doubt in my mind that those companies, which follow the “ethical codes”, are more successful than the ones that don’t. The ethics and success in the business world go hand in hand and only with an ethical leader a company can
