Furthermore, John Antonakis, a professor of organizational behavior at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Lausanne, and his colleagues inspected how power influences leaders in leadership positions. The findings revealed that leaders who were less honest had a higher possibility to reveal more corrupt behavior than those who had high standards of honesty (Antonakis, Zehnder, Pralong & Bendahan,

Gioia uses pathos to make the readers feel bad and worried about the future of society, “The significance of reading has become a persistant theme in the business world. The February issue of Wired magazine, for example, sketches a new set of mental skills and habits proper to the 21st century, aptitudes decidedly literary in character: not ‘linear, logical, analytical talents,’ author Daniel Pink states, but ‘the ability to create artistic and emotional beauty, to detect patterns and opportunities, to craft a satisfying narrative.’ When asked what kind of talents they like to see in management positions, business leaders consistently set imagination, creativity, and higher-order thinking at the top” (Gioia). By showing the negative effects of the lack of literature in society, it causes the readers to feel sorrowful and make them want to assist the author in helping improve the problem. With ethics he makes the readers side with him by showing that he cares about the world’s future and doesn’t want the society to suffer. In conclusion, Dana Gioia applies vocabulary and rhetorical appeals to actively influence his audience to agree to his argument.
These would be awful stories, wouldn’t they? And yet, the stories we tell ourselves about our desires and goals tend to follow along these same unfavorable lines. As soon as the going gets slightly tough, we fall apart from the inside out. Consider a recent example in your own life: What’s a positive change you’ve tried to make in your life, but have desperately struggled with? Whatever the positive change is, think about the story you started telling yourself the minute you realized you weren’t making progress as fast as you expected.
On one hand Western world has to develop democracy under the foundations of authority, privacy, responsibility, and justice. On the other hand they have focused on building management systems that operate under the simplistic perception of a machine where every part (including person) needs managed. This in turn has grown to become an obvious incongruence and annoyance of many 21st Century citizens who no longer want to be the slaves of business owners. This paper is a discussion of the concept of self-management for modern corporations in a postmodern society. This paper also tries to address this issue by adopting a different organization structure with commensurate roles, responsibilities and authorities with empowerment as a theme for the shop-floor employees or associated as they are often called instead of operators.
Paraphrasing In my opinion, the purpose of the essay, “Life under the Chief Doublespeak Officer” the author, William Lutz shares a descriptive analogy of doublespeak words and terms used in this era by American businesses to manipulate. These words and terms are used everywhere from the corporate world, financial institutions to small independent businesses. One descriptive writing pattern used in this essay is compare the Unfamiliar to the Familiar where Lutz used buzzwords as “competitive dynamics” (unfamiliar) and provides a related word as “synergy” for an effective description of how doublespeak can be an effective, but eluded practice in business. He provides several examples in various lines of business of how common or established

My friend and I are struggling to change our mindset, from fixed mindset to growth mindset. We don’t blame our parents for that, and we can’t, because we also learn at school and at our community, which are really out of our parents’ control. Instead, we are thankful to becoming what we are and knowing that we are able to change our mindset now. I know change is hard, but it is possible and worth it. I like the quote from Mindset book, “Change can be tough, but I’ve never heard anyone say it wasn’t worth it.” (Mindset 246) It is become the biggest challenge in our life, because if we want to change our mindset, then we need to change it now while we are young, otherwise it would be too late.
Your perspective is reality, true or not it is. However, when something happens and you your perspective is lost is it true that you lose your sense of reality? Or perhaps you don 't lose reality but rather gain perspective, which can be confusing in a whole other light. Author Tim O’Brien, through his narrative, The Things They Carried, emphasises the idea the perhaps there is no way to lose perspective; instead you are constantly gaining it causes more confusion while you 're still writing your story. But perhaps when you take a step back after you’ve made it through the mess the pieces (the memorable moments good and bad) seem to fall into place creating a glance “across the surface of my [your] history” (233).

Glazer and Rexrode also contribute the ideas of “fining bank chief executives, banning bad traders from the business or factoring compliance breaches into compensation aim to build a more personal sense of responsibility.” The last point in this article explains how Wells Fargo has added questions to its annual employee survey. They have done this to try to “understand whether employees refer the bank’s products to friends and family, and decipher the confidence in the
