To me this proves that not all subjects can be learned in a classroom, but rather can be obtained through actual experiences. I think Ziglar did a great job in sharing his observations and engraining them into the minds of new generations of salespeople. This book did help me to better understand the world of selling. Selling to people is an art, and must be done with calculation. Everyone salesperson must deal with the public and this book gave me significant insight on how to better handle situations that will be thrown my way.
This plan would benefit the entire country in various ways. Individuals would gain important traits and learn important skills. Some oppose this concept, but eventually, they will see the benefits as they learn more and become more open to new ideas. A year of mandatory national service would be beneficial to anyone as long as they embrace it in a positive way and see it as an opportunity. Ironically, this concept of national service will be most beneficial to those who dislike it, as their negative attitudes will begin to become more positive with the aid of national service.
The habits are to be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, seek first to understand and then to be understood, synergize, and to sharpen the saw. Even though this book does not talk a lot about business, there is plenty of great advice that could potentially guide the reader in the right direction in their career. Evolution of Importance: This book is important to business students because it has a lot of useful and important statements within it. This book not only influences the readers, but gives the reader step by step instructions on how to apply the advice to their lives. Another point that can be made about this book is that it shows how to solve both personal and professional problems.
Though that definition is correct, I think we can expand and improve it. A hero is somebody who helps another person, but he also helps to push them above and beyond what they thought they could personally do. Heros can think straight when it comes to emergencies, and they always help if they are at the right place at the right time. They encourage others to do great things and are very humble when it comes to any accomplishments. Putting the term “hero” into a class is kind of tricky.
Another factor can be people. Some people waste my time by not cooperating, distracting me, and by not contributing. I don’t necessarily have to remove them completely from my life, but I should avoid them in some situations. For example, I can pick different partners for projects, when possible. I learned that I should be active and try to achieve a goal than let my negative filter stop
I believe appealing to someone’s values is the strongest way to charm the audience and make them trust your opinion. And since Haidt is constantly referring to values, he definitely knows how to “play you”. One specific example of values jumpstarts in chapter one as he begins the chapter by
In the short story, “I Witness,” Michael Redhill states that “The true measure of success in life is how well we connect.” I absolutely agree with this statement because of how connecting with people has an enormous effect towards succeeding in life. Connecting well with people will give us many benefits and advantages such as getting varieties of opinions from different type of people, being taught life lessons and gaining more knowledge. Success is truly affected by having these benefits and advantages. Variety of people has different opinions and thoughts. Many of us face difficulties when it comes to decision making.
This is done through creating profitable and maintainable relationships with customers. The course has taught me that companies have a responsibility in understanding the marketplace and customer needs. If companies are unsuccessful at doing this, there is a great probability that they will fail at making profits. Marketing helps companies maintain their competiveness. What I learnt from reading the literature I really enjoyed learning about consumer behavior as it managed to change the lens through which I viewed the world.
I feel as though I need to work on trusting others more, and following-up with situations. It is very difficult for me to trust people. Although, it could be considered a good/bad thing based on the situation, I want to be able to open-up to others more, and it is something that I am working on. There are also a lot of times where I refuse to ask for help because I think I have the situation under control. When in reality I need some sort of extra help.
I chose the social work industry because I felt that this occupation was a great. By mastering the techniques with clients it gives them something to look forward to and it improved self-esteem. It gives such a great feeling that pushes you forward to doing this job. You never know what’s going on in a person’s personal life, so the act of kindness or a simple smile to a stranger might mean the world to them. Social work has always appeared to be a very enriching and interesting topic for me.
McGonigal builds up her explanations more sufficiently by using logos appeal again when she talks about vicarious pride. In doing so, she provides readers with reliable data and diverse information. Firstly, she suggests her points that “It’s no surprise that mentoring our friends and family in gameplay makes us happy and brings us closer together” (McGonigal 87). Then, she refers to Paul Ekman, a pioneering emotions researcher and an expert on the phenomenon of naches. Ekman explains that “this particular emotion is also likely an evolved mechanism, designed to enhance group survival” (McGonigal 87).
Creativity is also something that I am very committed to because it pushes people to explore new boundaries and come up with ideas that excite and bring positive energy into their lives. I enjoy hearing the ideas of friends, coworkers, etc., because I will never underestimate the power of an idea. Creativity is what has allowed us to progress over time. In this program many other students will be providing me their creative thoughts and solutions, which allows new ideas to be born and causes a cycle. Service is also important because when we provide any of our time into helping someone or something out it allows us to stay humble and acknowledge what is going on around us.
When working with a team I tend to be so focused on achievement that it comes at the expense of including everyone. I need to stop being so competitive as this behavior creates a self-centered approach and can lead to unethical actions. In order to achieve my goal I need to keep being willing to call out those individuals that are not adhering to the rules, while at the same time rewarding those for their appropriate behavior. As I mentioned earlier, a potential barrier to me achieving my goal of ethical leadership is my internal desire to compete. In order to overcome this potential barrier, I will use feedback from those around me on ways that I can improve.
