1 Bernard Ebbers leadership is charismatic and transactional leadership. Charismatic leadership style you can see how colleague/staff feel about him “When he enters a room, he is like a rock star,” one WorldCom employee said. “People wanted to touch him, shake his hand. He created tremendous wealth, at least on paper. People revered him.” (Bernard Ebbers: Innovative Leader or Reckless Risk Taker, p90) Murray Waldron, one of Ebbers’s original partners, described him as “the most focused leader I’d ever seen.” “He is absolutely one of the most incredible human beings I have come in contact with,” said Diana Day, who worked with Ebbers for nearly 20 years.
Tweak: growing up on Methamphetamines by Nic Sheff This book was an amazing book and educational read. It takes you through the ins and outs of drug abuse here in America. It makes you look at the world from a different view, a more sympathetic view, a caring view, a down right straight forward type view. It has twisted and vicious first-hand account about a life of addiction. As David Rothenburg stated “People tend to accept survival of the fittest simplification of evolution and leave it at that.
Raymond Rubicam (June 16, 1892 – May 8, 1978) was one of the twentieth century’s advertising giants. He is known as the father of modern advertising of the United States. He was a great copywriter, whose work is remembered and admired even today. Started as a copywriter with N.W.

I think that is why so many people admire these writings, because they can apply them to actions completely opposite from war such as work, relationship issues, and communication dilemmas. Not only can people learn how to tackle issues using different tactics, but they also learn about the true “warrior” within. People can challenge and test their own theories on “war” and use Sun Tzu’s maxims to modify their usual ways of thinking and behaving as they go about life. Sun Tzu’s, The Art of War gives people a unique perspective on how life’s obstacles can be overcome by thinking outside of the box. I will be using deception, trickery and swiftness from Sun Tzu’s maxims to relate to current history.
No matter what prison you find yourself, your imagination cannot be imprisoned. The life you see in the mirror is the image of your destiny. You can like or dislike it base on how well life treats you. Every battle won in life has a master mind behind and is in two phase; first spiritual realm before physical. And that give us the two phase of life.
Options and choices are the best part of life. Choosing and making decisions is a part of becoming more independent and having freedom. But what if there was a restriction on family, the job one could have, or the memories one could make. In The Giver, Jonas’s society has no decisions, no choosing, or picking. Is this the idea of a Utopia where people take all the responsibility of making all of life's hard decisions?
More accurately, however, the novel depicts a man’s journey in finding himself and his values, with Gatsby’s love story as a catalyst for his revelation. The Great Gatsby is a great novel as it depicts uniquely human and American experiences and ideals, in so that the novel’s ideas still resonate with readers today. The Great Gatsby understands the intricate struggle citizens possess with their desire for wonder and fantasy, particularly in American society. As Gatsby had with Daisy, fantasies for the future are a universal experience. The search for wonder and fantasy occasionally leads to the point of self-destruction, of which Joshua Rothman in his New Yorker article “The Serious Superficiality of The Great Gatsby” states is “most appealing about ‘Gatsby’; its mood of witty hopelessness, of vivacious
Poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson was an extremely intelligent and insightful being in his time. His work has left such an impact on people all over the world for generations, and will most likely continue to do so for many more generations to come. Emerson’s philosophies and ideals have been examined and used for numerous debates, comparisons, contrasts, and perhaps his most examined work besides the notorious “Self-Reliance” would be “The American Scholar”.

However, it takes on a new form in decision-making that still proves to be the most crucial aspect of life. From comparing the advantages and disadvantages of colleges and careers to even deciding on a new political party to follow, reading takes center stage as the main factor. Nowadays, it is a common occurance to hear the phrase “Millenials are ruining everything,” referencing the newest generation’s rejection of certain industries such as diamonds and paper towels. However, Millenials are not refusing to buy diamonds in favor of other products, but because they have access to the internet and vast streams of knowledge that teach them about the negatives of the diamond industry. In other words, Millenials have taken advantage of the knowledge at their fingertips and read into the tragedies of blood diamonds in Sierra Leone in order to make a decision not to support such crimes.
