This would be the first week of university after a month long break with peak winter and when it came down to the selection of subjects, I straight away took the leadership management coursework thinking of nothing more then what dad has always told me as a kid, “Kalyan, being a leader doesn’t mean you have to be ahead of people and lead them alone, it means that you have to lead them in a way that the people think about you as a leader as long as they are alive. Legacy, Kalyan is the quality which determines the leaders in people. When you do something for the people in your walk of life, do it in an exceptional way that they will not forget what you have done for them and at the same time do not expect anything from them.” These words were very inspiring for me as a kid and these are the words followed by hundreds and thousands of students over 40 years of experience from a teacher whose values and principles are very particular. I’ve seen him change and mould the careers of many kids over the years with this inspiration and build an empire for himself with this burning desire for leaving a legacy behind. I’ve never understood the value of anything when I was a teenager, the reason was my dad, he was behind me without me noticing him. He was my shadow, my strength and the greatest support I have in my life.
When this class of leadership had started and in the very first week of the class when the professor started asking the class about the different leaders and who is the most inspirational leader in one’s own life, I just had a flash of memory which went past and the only thing I could realise was, how spoilt I was as a kid and how my father kept on pushing me time and again for me being in the position I now stand and how he inspired me and gave me all the ideas and tried to put me in a virtuous direction and I was always taking it in the wrong sense…...

...International Journal of Event Management Research Volume 6, Number 1, 2011 VOLUNTEER SATISFACTION AND INTENT TO REMAIN: AN ANALYSIS OF CONTRIBUTING FACTORS AMONG PROFESSIONAL GOLF EVENT VOLUNTEERS Gina Pauline Syracuse University ABSTRACT Sport events are increasingly reliant on episodic volunteers for the successful delivery of an event. As there continues to exist a surge in the organization of sporting events coupled with the demand for volunteers, event organizers must concern themselves with utilizing the appropriate recruitment and retention strategies. In an effort to do this, one must understand the points of satisfaction for volunteers as well as factors influencing their future intentions to volunteer. While there exists a plethora of research to understand the motivation of volunteers, exploring the antecedents of volunteer satisfaction as well as intent to remain has been limited. This study investigates the factors influencing volunteer satisfaction as well as intentions to remain as a volunteer for future sporting events from an elite men’s golf event on the Professional Golf Association (PGA) circuit. Results indicated that overall volunteers were satisfied with their experience and willing to return yet were concerned with the level of communication between the organization and volunteers. The present study also found that longevity of service influenced volunteer satisfaction. A MANOVA revealed significant differences between first......

...Journals Student’s Name Institution Journal 1: Part 1 Work in my opinion refers to the legitimate means by which man makes a living. Every individual in life has demands that need fulfillment. Individuals have responsibilities that they have to handle. Work enables individuals to earn a living that in turn enables them to meet these responsibilities. It implies that for any normal human being to live comfortably, one must work. Besides earning a living, work enables to utilize our time well. The world today could be full of vices if everybody had nothing to do. They deem that the fiend employs of redundant minds explains this situation clearly. Individuals ought to embrace the work and take it positively rather than viewing it as a punishment. Work should be as part of us, and a means through which human beings maintain their dignity and live respectable lives (Connors and Paul, 2009). The culture of rewarding hard workers cultivated in me the culture of hard work and a positive view towards life. From my tender age, I learned that the work was the way of life and the only way through which individuals could better their lives. On academic grounds, I must state that the teachings by our teachers towards work had a lot of impact on me. They taught work as a virtue and changed my perception towards work. Family provided me with my first interaction with the work. My parents could divide the work and go ahead to reward those who did good work. It instilled in me the...

The paper begins by defining supplier involvement in NPD and evaluating the rationale for supplier involvement in NPD. This suggests that early and extensive supplier involvement in NPD projects has the potential to improve NPD effectiveness and efficiency, however, existing research remains fragmented and empirical findings to date show conflicting results. The paper takes stock of the research on supplier involvement in NPD, tracing the origins of the literature to the late 1980s, and evaluating the development of the field up to the present day. From this broad base of empirical research the analysis identifies a set of......

...Weekly Journal Date: 12/15/14 Day: Monday Time: 3:40 pm I didn’t get anything done on the project this weekend. I hope the other team members fared better than I did. I did look over the project management reference guide. I better understanding of what’s expected for the capstone. The reason I didn’t get much done was because I was getting stuff ready for Christmas. Every time I thought I was finished, I’d get another call saying I need more help. I thought I’d only be busy on Thursday, but that didn’t work out. I got a call on Friday and Saturday as well. I should’ve got started yesterday but that wasn’t happening either, football Sunday. So I guess I’ll have to make it up this weekend. This project is going to be difficult. It entails a lot of work. We have to come up with a project name, which we haven’t done yet. We have to have a risk management plan, a change management plan, a quality management plan, and a project charter. All of which is going to take careful planning and a lot of research. Hopefully we will be able to come to the same conclusions on how this should be laid out, financed and implemented. I think we have a pretty good group of people, Clinton, Stephanie, I, and Said I think. I’m confident that Mr. Swope will give us all the help we’ll need. Also I’m so glad this is the last quarter, the end is near. I can’t wait to graduate. Date: 12/22/2014 Day: Monday Time: 10:45 pm I’m feeling better about this project, now that we got some......

...type of psychological contract. The findings show weaker relationships between the values, perceived transactional-type contracts, and perceptions of contract breach. Research limitations/implications – The study relied upon a cross-sectional design. Such a design consists of a single observation with no control groups, and so cannot be used to draw conclusions about causal relationships between the variables. In addition, the study examined only one professional group in one culture. Practical implications – The significant relationship between conservation and self-transcendence values and perceptions of relational-type contracts suggests that organizations should take this into account when making hiring and human resource (HR) management decisions. Originality/value – Few studies have examined how individual values relate to the type of psychological contract individuals perceive themselves involved in, or the way they perceive contract breach. Examining individual-level values helps to elucidate the attitudes and behaviors of employees in the workplace. Keywords Individual values, Psychological contracts, Organizational justice, Employees behaviour, Employees attitudes, Israel Paper type Research paper Introduction Over the past few years, the concept of psychological contracts has received considerable attention in the literature, making a significant contribution to our understanding of the relationship between contemporary employees and......

Our objective is to improve the understanding of how entrepreneurship policies can lead to socially inclusive growth at the BOP. Drawing on data collected from Brazilian tourism destinations with varying entrepreneurship, innovation, and social inclusion policies, we argue that weak institutions coupled with alert entrepreneurs encourage destructive outcomes, especially if entrepreneurship policies are based solely on economic indicators. Policies addressing both economic and social perspectives may foster more productive entrepreneurial outcomes, albeit at a more constrained economic pace. The study extends the related BOP, entrepreneurship, global value chain, and sustainable tourism literatures by examining the poor as entrepreneurs, the role of local innovation, and how entrepreneurship policies generate different social impacts within poor......

...LP8 Journal The concepts during the establishment can be: Is this a good idea or a bad idea? Is this belief defensible or indefensible? Is my position on this issue reasonable and rational or not? Am I willing to deal with complexity or do I retreat into simple stereotypes to avoid it? If I can't tell if my idea or belief is reasonable or defensible, how can I have confidence in my thinking, or in myself? Is it appropriate and wise to assume that my ideas and beliefs are accurate, clear, and reasonable, when I haven't really tested them? Do I think deeply or only on the surface of things? Do I ever enter sympathetically into points of view that are very different from my own, or do I just assume that I am right? Do I know how to question my own ideas and to test them? And do I know what I am aiming for? Should I? Finding from research compounds all the others and makes it harder to change practice Avoidance thought-provoking work and activities and stick to predictable routines Being caught in a vicious circle of mediocre practice modelled after mediocre practice, of trivialized knowledge begetting more trivialized knowledge That there are appropriate standards for the assessment of thinking and there are specific ways to cultivate the learning of them.
