Both articles discussed effective leadership when dealing with issues of cultural differences. Empowerment across low and high power-distance societies were also examined in the second article. Hofstede’s five value dimensions of the United States and Thailand, the four types of competing values, the CDC’s artifacts, values and underlying assumptions, chain of command and language barriers were all considered during the organizations analysis (De
For a leader of a nation to want the best for their country is great, but to want the best for the world is exceptional. For example, in many of Churchill's speeches it was obvious he was thinking of the state of other countries. He, before the outbreak of World War Two, made his "Be Ye Men of Valor" speech to Britain as the Prime Minister, calling his country to act on the problem at hand. Churchill spoke, "Behind them, behind us, behind the Armies and Fleets of Britain and France, gather a group of shattered States and bludgeoned races: the Czechs, the Poles, the Norwegians, the Danes, the Dutch, the Belgians -- upon all of whom the long night of barbarism will descend, unbroken even by a star of hope, unless we conquer, as conquer we must, and conquer we shall". He truly believed that it was the duty of all countries to make the world a better place, to help other countries in need, even if it meant going to war with another country.
All great speeches have a purpose, either to rally the population, promote some idea or to encourage others. Winston Churchill’s Speech entitled “Their Finest Hour” has gone down in history as one of the greatest and most powerful speech of the Second World War. It was given in response to the fall of the France in the war, and helped establish the tone for the people of the United Kingdom, that despite the great loss, they still had hope to overcome the enemy forces. Churchill’s speech inspired patriotism, determination and hope. This speech was directed at all the people in the United Kingdom, to unite and to promise a better hope, despite of Hitler’s attempts at world domination and the victory of the Nazis in almost every battle in Europe.
On December 9, 1948, as the United States was approaching a proposal towards the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which seemed unfair and uncompromised, first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt displayed a motivational and moving speech to allow the citizens of America to come together as one to make the best of the situation that was proposed in front of them.The analysis of the tingling speech on the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, will explore the deep rhetorical devices used to compel the audience and America, including the true purpose and background of this particular eye-opening speech. In paragraph 1, it reads, “Not every man nor every government can have what he wants in a document of this kind. There are of course particular provisions in the Declaration before us with which we are not fully satisfied.” By saying this, Eleanor presents the rhetorical device pathos, because she uses inspirational words to grab attention and connect with the listeners in a way that relates to them. She also uses vivid language to truly intrigue the audience to compromise and work together to provide peace for the country. Eleanor uses a strong form of ethos in the quote from paragraph 10 , “ This declaration is based upon the spiritual fact
Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “National Duties” calls for nationalism and unity, as it says that each individual must work hard and that individuals must work together. Furthermore, it works to motivate our nation by using two ideas – what a nation may leave behind and how a nation should conduct itself. The speech itself, although given while he was Vice President, accurately describes what his actions as president were, whether it be regarding nationalism, personal matters, or foreign diplomacy. His ideology of how a nation should act, seen in the phrase “speaking softly and carrying a big stick” works to motivate many, including our current military, because it focuses on civility backed with power. This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience.
Scott Russell Sanders uses the rhetorical strategies of parallelism and rhetorical questions in order to demonstrate his dislike for moving. Sanders uses parallel structure throughout his essay to demonstrate the current society’s value on expansion and movement. For instance, Sanders speaks of Americans who “have dug the most canals, laid the most rails, built the most roads” (Sanders 18-19) and because of this Americans have the most power. Sanders uses it to express the societal view that easy access to migration route makes one more important because movement is the key to life. Sanders develops a connection with the audience through the use of parallelism by demonstrating that he understands their interest in movement and the
Churchill first uses an analogy of how nations in history overcame the evil. In the analogy, the author states that the ‘the spirit of resistance’ overwhelmed the evil; the spirit represents Britain and the United States; the evil represents Nazi Germany and its Allies. With the use of the analogy, Churchill strongly urges and shows confidence that if Britain and the United States support each other with military support, the issue can be solved easily-. Churchill highlights his confidence by using black and white contrast. He illustrates the past-when the nations were full of fear- as ‘miseries’, ‘prolonged confusion, which can be seen as black, and depicts the near future as ‘conception of light’.
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first impact was that he worked with Congress to get budgets approved and systems modernized to have greater Military forces. This helped in World War 2 to help get better naval weapons and better equipment for soldiers in battle. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s second impact was that he used the invention of the radio to keep Americans hopes up during World War 2 and called his radio show “Fireside Chats” in which case he used to talk to people over the radio instead of revealing his paralysis, and in which case he earned great trust through this with America. And Franklin D. Roosevelt’s third and final impact was that he produced the “Alphabet Agencies” such as the AAA, Agricultural Adjustment Agency, to support farm prices by reducing agricultural production through subsidies. Or the CCC, Civilian Conservation Corps, which employed young unmarried men to work refurbishing public lands
In 1961, the United States of America was struggling to fight communism internationally and protect its people from negative outside forces. Along with these complications, there were struggles with racial and social inequalities. The country was on the brink of its breaking point, needing a resilient and reassuring leader; President John F. Kennedy, in his inaugural speech, offered the people of the United States the reassurance they desired. A hortatory tone was used by the president to deliver and convey a sense of inspiration to a country whose people needed it greatly. Kennedy applied interpersonal diction and the meticulous use of aphorisms to unceasingly inspire the citizens of America to unite and serve their country, and the world,
A leader needs to adapt to situations and use techniques that are inclusive in order to avoid conflict and aids decision-making. Building relationships, considering others feelings and celebrating their successes with them can maintain strong leadership.
