To get the effectiveness of in attaining its goals with regard of ethics in workplace, McMahone (2012) emphasizes the need to have an evaluation techniques for level of effectiveness. Wright (2013) highlights that it is necessary to have leaders to act as roles models to guide their followers. But that is easier to be said than done it might be a real challenge in reality. It is needed to give leaders tools and techniques to guide with the complex challenge of ethics. Therefore, it is not for just taking courses about ethics, it requires continuum learning and development to reinforce skills and ethical
Also, men tend to be on the more aggressive side. Therefore, if someone were to threaten the United States, their first instinct would be to declare war. Meanwhile, women would lower the temper of the government and provide a problem solving element. Suffragists argued that direct influence in government was best for both women and society. They claimed that exerting indirect influence was not only time-consuming but also ineffective in enacting social reforms.
This quote shows how oppression is largely universal while demonstrating how uncomfortable topics should not be avoided for fear of said discomfort. The differences that separate us as a people such as race, class, age, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality demonstrate the intermeshed oppressions that both men and women experience uniquely from one another. In “Age, Race, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference”, author Audre says that racism and sexism is a “belief in the superiority of one race/ sex over all others.” We have all been manipulated into thinking how society wants us to think and this mindset will set up a lifetime pursuit of attempting to decolonize this way of thinking that has been instilled in us for so long. It is almost impossible not to recognize the difference when you know it is there. Race only exists if we allow our consciousness and belief to come
As I recall, I did agree on the argument Ehrenreich proposed but not to the full extent. I somehow disagree with the fact that being ladylike can’t allow women to be as successful and recognized as men are. Ladylike women have the same influential power as tough ones but it is expressed in a different manner. Ehrenreich defined the term ladylikeness as a “persistent servility masked as niceness” (Par.4), ignoring other ways of anticipation for this term. In my opinion, being ladylike is a silent but deadly approach a woman might use to influence others and eventually reach her purpose.
Therefore, people maintain these preconceived ideals of the past because they fear the chaos that would occur if these roles were to change. This results from humans siding with what is known because it makes us feel comfortable with our situation. If this is the case, humans are unknowingly stunting the productivity of our civilization through resisting change. To begin, the article We Live in Blank White Spaces portrays the idea that modern day issues regarding human rights between men and women ultimately result from our corrupt history of marginalizing women. Many people concerned with the idea of feminism acknowledge the fact that women were mistreated in this manner to a greater extent in the past (as seen in more developed countries such as the United States and Germany).
When analyzing the situation over, Shirley does make me want to file a formal complaint to my boss. In a work area and as a female I would not feel comfortable having co- workers making crude sexual comments about employees, making sexist jokes and sharing sexual graphics amongst each other on their phones. Since the organization is formal, meaning that this organization contains a bureaucracy in which a phenomenon is defined by policies and guidelines. In establishing a formal complaint, it will therefore be in the right steps in following the company’s bureaucracy, despite the good aspects the nature of this case will be shown on the negative in the form of punishment of this case. When the punishment was established I would have to disagree on whether it was the right punishment for them, and therefore recommend a different form such as warnings and write-ups.
The male dominance is present to an extent, but without females being accounted for, tasks and responsibilities would not be completed; men depend on the women in the society of Beowulf. Even though the tale is stereotypically male based, having peacemakers, hostesses and a violent female prolongs the story line and proves that as much as women are seen as unimportant, they are absolutely crucial to the tale of
These stereotypes have proven to be harsher for the men to break out of compared to women. Although women are pushing for gender role shifts unaware of the effects that it may have on our society and the stereotypes that men are still stuck filling. The stereotypes men try to conform to are often set by woman including dominance, toughness, and many more attributes woman find attractive in a guy. Therefore, men find it hard to try and change these attributes when asked to do so. This is prevalent in occupations as well.
Leadership is can mean different things to different people. To me, leadership is more than having a title and subordinates. Leadership is having the courage to make the right choices, engage others in a vision, and empower your subordinates with a shared purpose and to achieve positive impacts. Leadership can also be relational which means it takes teamwork, requires you to be able to work with others in various backgrounds and that may have difference perspectives. Leadership also requires continuous learning, discerned decision making, and savvy communication skills.
Like occupational therapy, spirituality is very individualized, therefore the specific activity and its experience, context, and environment will relate to the “essence of the person and their inner motivator” (Bassett, Lloyd, and Tse, 2008). It has the potential to influence [an individual 's] overall health and structure human experience, beliefs, values, behavior, and illness patterns (Taylor et al., 2000). It can also “affect occupational performance and development throughout the lifespan” (Donica, 2008). These articles place spirituality/religion as a contributing quality of what makes up an individual and the occupations they engage in. Upon coming to understand this category of occupation, by way of literary review, I am able to use these definitions and the OTPF to define and describe my IADL, prayer, as a religious and/or spiritual
It’s essential for a leader to understand their role and be helpful by stepping on the side and allow professionals do their part. Mr. Dees (2014) establishes that leaders should take crisis as a learning experience and growth from it as “crisis defines the character of the leader”(Dees, 2013, p.
Throughout history, we have come far in ways of discrimination. However, women today still have to face intolerable cruelty from men. Regardless whether the media disrespects women, it should be in women’s best interest to rise above and realize how much worth they have too society. Whether it’s expected unladylike behavior, or shaming based on a woman’s figure, Gender inequality is overrated and extremely hurtful. Therefore, it is in my best belief that women were not created to do everything a man can do, but everything a man can’t
Leaders believe that advancing diversity is vital to their business because their companies need it to stay competitive, and they believed it was more vital because of their personal experiences and values. Diversity has the opportunity to create disagreements in the workplace and that is needed. People who are of different backgrounds and lifestyles are given the opportunity to challenge one another more. Having a diverse workplace can also help prevent companies from becoming to narrow-minded and out of touch with its customer
