As discussed in earlier modules, HRM functions should capitalize focus on human capital while supporting the requirements to grow and increase value for the organization. Utilizing the Cycle of Excellence adds value to both the organization and HR managers because it saves time and money by using an already established, proven, and popular model. More importantly, the cycle supports “soft” HRM methods which promote the company’s long-term focus and goals, at the same time creating an environment to build and retain long-term employees and future …show more content…
A failing or poorly managed businesses can be held afloat just because the people working for it keep it working. For example, companies like Ford and Chrysler almost went bankrupt due to poor leadership and management decisions. However, workers continued to do their jobs, and in some cases, provide ideas and suggestions to the new leadership regime that propelled the company from decline. Further, leadership will always come and go, but the core of an organization will always be the strength of any company. Another great example is all of the military units subject to toxic leadership. Although a unit may have had horrible leadership, the continuity of the organization was kept intact by the soldiers. Motivation, value, and bonds built between employees and peers are stronger than the bonds formed between subordinates and leadership. Thus, creating the need for HRM and tools like the Cycle of Excellence; bridging the relationship between employees and organizations. Unfortunately, I believe grapple and grow a wasted step, or more specifically, not the right verbiage for a step in the Cycle of Excellence. Understandably, grapple and grow is an important part of any business or organization. However, if HRM is doing the job, it is designed to do, then grapple and grow should be organic to any plan. Specifically, if you accomplish steps two and

People may conclude that we control our destiny, while other think that our success is foredestined by our natural talents. Which is more reasonable? David Epstein and Malcolm Gladwell take two different approaches on this subject. David Epstein, the author of The Sports Gene, a non-fiction article, believes that innate talent has more effect than athletic practice. On the other hand, Malcolm Gladwell, the writer of the Outliers: The Story of Success, also a non-fiction article, disagrees and concluded that practice is more important than innate talent.
I believe this because you have to be willing to train and make sacrifices in order to improve in the physical area of sports. In “Confessions of a Doper” the author explains on page 90 how he used drugs to achieve “that last 2 percent” that he needed to become an elite athlete. However, the other 98% was achieved by mental strength. In order to conquer that 98%, he spent all his time training and mentally preparing for his race. I know what you are thinking, isn’t training preparing physically?
In chapter twelve, Coach Wooden discusses how his Pyramid of Success can be used to achieve greatness in all aspects of life. It can be used as an example of how to succeed for anybody, not just athletes. Wooden’s Pyramid of Success includes fifteen traits that are required to reach one’s maximum potential.

The human resource management is vital in safeguarding that the people employed by an organization live up to their capabilities. This can be done by creating a strategy plan that aligns with the organizational goals. Their actions are designed to move that plan forward.

Followers would never progress on their journeys if leaders didn't motivate them to go places they might not otherwise go. Organizations take on the personality of their leaders, and followers must be confident that the leader of the organization can be trusted with the outcome of the journey. The leader must be able to attract followers. New leaders can successfully persuade others to trust them, and will evidence other certain behaviors. They themselves will be skilled at trusting, because trusting and trustworthiness enhance each other.

“An organizational strategy is the sum of the actions a company intends to take to achieve long-term goals (Johnson, 2016)”. Organizational strategy is derived from a company 's mission, which tells why an organisation is in business. There are three important aspects of organizational strategy such as resources, scope and the company’s core competency (Johnson, 2016). As Johnson (2016) postulated that top management produces the larger organizational strategy, while middle and lower management adopt goals and plans to satisfy the overall strategy. Germano (2010) states that leadership has a significant impact upon organisation and its success, whereby leaders determine values, culture and employee motivation.
Did you know that by some estimates, up to 60 percent of competitive athletes overtrain at some point? A recent study conducted showed that over 15 percent of 200 elite British athletes tested met the criteria for being overtrained, and thus, felt the effects of a “burnout” (Reynolds 1). To understand the toll that overtraining can take on an athlete’s life, consider Whitney Myers, a world class swimmer at the University of Arizona. In 2006, Myers won the women’s N.C.A.A. title in the 200 and 400-yard individual medleys, while going on to win gold in the 200-meter individual medley at the Pan Pacific Championships. Less than a year later, however, she stumbled under pressure at the 2007 Long-Course Championships, making the finals in only one

1.4.1 Literature Review HRM practices are a process of engaging, motivating, and maintaining employees to ensure the organizational survival (Schuler and Jackson, 1987). According to (Delery and Doty, 1996) HRM practices are prepared and implemented in a way that human capital plays important role in achieving the goals and objectives of the organization. The appropriate use of HRM practices strongly influence the standard of employer and the degree of employee commitment (Purcell, 2003). HRM practices like, training and development, performance appraisal allow the employees to do better in order to enhance the organizational performance (Snell and Dean, 1992; Pfeffer, 1998).
