The overall semester definitely had its up’s and downs . As a Peer Mentor I have learned to appreciate my hardwork much more and also learned that speaking up a lot is key to key action to many things. One of my goals for the semester as a Peer Mentor was to get to know my peer mentees on a friendship level or maybe as acquaintances. That goal actually came true in a way because I only made three acquaintances only. Another goal I had throughout the semester was to go outside of my comfort zone a little, I really didn 't like to talk in front of the class. However, as a Peer Mentor I had to do that more than twice which really develop outside of my comfort zone. Sgo that growth in getting out of my comfort zone was amazing and helped me
The community group I visited was Beaches Unity Group, which was located at 322 Penman Road. This was an Alcoholics Anonymous group that provided open discussion for people who were both struggling with alcohol abuse, as well as addiction. It gave the participants an opportunity to introduce themselves, and tell their background story. There where also opportunities to offer advice to the other members. I decided to sit in an AA group because there is history of alcoholism in my family, and so I was curious to hear the stories of other people, and how they are coping with their disorder. I chose this particular group because it was an open meeting and they welcomed anyone. The man running the group, was a member himself, and was very welcoming.
This learning module was inspired by the bestselling book Crucial Conversations (2012), written by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillian, and Al Switzler. The following learning modules have been created independently based on themes from the book.
The purpose of group learning and development is to ensure that all learning styles are catered for and the ultimate goal of sharing knowledge is achieved. When using a group to deliver something new each individual can call on a fellow participant to confirm understanding.
“I’d like a tropical guava smoothie, please.” The cashier nods her head and gives me a smug look while she is putting a lid on a cup. I could tell what she was thinking. It was the universal someone-had-too-much-to-drink-last-night look. I could care less. A combination of dehydration, anxiety, excitement, and impatience fills me as I wait.

mainly talked about the Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing both in US domestic waters as well as high seas.
I even received a comment that I was much more confident in presenting at the staff meetings and other work related presentations. The lowest ranking in audiovisual was contributed to the viewing on my home laptop. I thought about reserving a conference room for the presentation, but knew the turnout would have been lower if I did not present at staff meeting. For any future presentations, I will ask the ED leaders if we could have the meeting in one of the conference rooms for better viewing. In regards to the thirty minute time frame set by the ED director, I received a comment that should have presented a 20 minute power point and saved 10 minutes for questions and answers. During the presentation I had a few questions and I should have asked in the beginning that all questions refrain until after the presentation. I also should have passed the evaluations out before the presentation with the brochure, might have received 100% participation and increase in comments. In regards to clarity, rate, and professionalism, I thought it was a very good presentation. I did find myself reading the presentation more word for word secondary to lack of visual
Being ridiculed for my religion was probably one of the most depressing and miserable parts of my life that I have ever experienced. Just all the other sixth graders laughing at me, for not joining in their "world religion ' ' made me feel so angry that I felt the need to cry. All I ever hear that whole school year, was "here comes the Jehovah Witness" and "Don 't open the door, it 's the Jehovah Witness." So public school was starting to feel like a place that was not best suited for me. So what I did was I sucked in my gut and pretended to be the bravest man I could pretend to be. When things started to seem better, the teacher had assigned a group project, and the worst part of it all was the fact every single person in our four person
A youtuber, StraightADRI NoChaser, said: “I can’t stand group projects.” Group projects are assignments that require a team to work together and to divide work evenly to achieve the goal of a good grade, but group projects do not always work out. Group projects should perish because there and are always uncooperative group members, independent work is much more beneficial, and collaborative work causes too many distractions.
Joining organizations at school are a very common subject to be conversed around college, even before college. There will be constant rambles from advisors and other upper-classmen to join clubs and organizations as a first-year student in college. Throughout college, this type of concern is everyone generally informed of. Even through all the important reminders and advices that students receive from others, there are still many students who are refusing to execute the first step toward joining an organization due to lack of motivation, knowledge, or courage. However, VSA, otherwise known as Vietnamese Student Association, is not just any typical organization on campus, it’s a family.
It was the beginning of the school year, and a girl walked into my math class. She was tall, long brown hair, a smile on her face, and she was wearing expensive looking clothes. She sat by me and initiated a conversation. I didn’t think she would talk to me because she looked like she came from a rich family that was a bunch of snobs, but that wasn't that case at all. Actually, her family is decent on money, and they aren't snobs at all. Mistakes are made by us all. I made a mistake in judging her based on her appearance and I shouldn't have because I was wrong. Don't believe something about someone else because of their
I am Amy Lacer’s co-worker and first met her in November, 2014, during my interview for her department. I was a nervous wreck and stressed because this was a major career change for me and I am a bit shy about meeting new people; in addition, I had misjudged traffic and was running late for the interview. Right away, Amy made a positive impression. She was tall and professional appearing, but still approachable with her warm smile open demeanor. One of the first things I noticed about Amy was her small nose ring, and it was this tiny show of individualism that really helped set my mind at ease over the prospect of working for corporate America. Amy made me feel welcome and important instead of inconvenient or in the way. My interview went for
In the beginning there were five “super-motivated” students who were telling each other we are going to do the best job in this assignment, and suddenly there were two and then Three! That’s how it unfolded- My undoubtedly insightful journey of completing a rather simple task, which I thought at first, coming from a consulting background and done similar projects most of my time throughout last couple of years. But however the task given to us to complete as a team to evaluate and critique the issues occurred in the Organisational change process at the Brighter futures had me re-learn and understand at a deeper level, most of which I thought I knew (a regular occurring thinking error perhaps in me) and come out quite satisfied
