The purpose of this annotated bibliography is to examine thirty-one selected references that describe the changes to instructional design principles, which are taking place, or need to take place, as a result of the increased usage of mobile devices. In recent years the technology and tools available for learning have changed dramatically, but teaching and learning methodologies have not significantly changed and traditional educational methodologies have been applied to new delivery methods.
It’s no secret that supervisor aggression is a serious issue facing many organizations with a wide range of consequences from retaliation and turnover to lawsuits. However, little attention has been given to the reasons why employees react differently to perceptions of supervisor aggression.
While it is unlikely that all instances of supervisor aggression will completely stop within any given organization, it is possible to help shape how employees will react to those situations. Most research focuses on the deconstructive reactions (e.g., getting even with their boss or taking it out on a co-worker) with less emphasis on the constructive reactions (e.g. finding an effective solution to the problem).
So, what factors come into play that causes an employee to have a constructive or deconstructive reaction to their boss’ aggressive behaviors....
Stories work for leaders as a successful communication technique for several reasons. Storytelling translates dry and abstract numbers into compelling pictures of a leader’s goals. Stories convey emotion effectively, and emotion united with a strong idea is persuasive. We remember what we feel and our emotions inspire us to take action.
Stories are memorable: research claims that we are up to 22 times more likely to remember a story than a set of disconnected facts.
A federal grant to Texas A&M University may lead to more efficient testing, certification and adoption of improved commercial shrimp fishing gear that will also contribute to the sustainability of the nation’s other fisheries. The Texas Sea Grant College Program’s (TXSG) Gary Graham and Tony Reisinger will use the $83,571 award from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to identify and test promising models of bycatch reduction devices and then choose the designs that are most likely to pass the rigors of full federal certification testing, thus eliminating time and money lost testing designs that fail to meet federal standards.
Your success--and fulfillment--as a manager is neatly encased in one bite-size nugget:Be who you are, just flex your style to manage others.Flexing your style means being versatile in how you lead, communicate, and motivate.
This revelation led me to staying open to what would fulfill my need to work collaboratively and be able to help more people in my work life. I’ve had a long, rich (and unusual) career in a number of disciplines unrelated to biology, without ever mapping out my career path in detail. Knowing that I was a “people person” seemed to be one of the keys that helped me to thrive.
For companies aspiring to help drive solutions to our global environmental challenges, being a trusted and trust-worthy corporate citizen is prerequisite. Links between and among reputation, business success, and sustainability are key in the era of social media, and unethical behaviour can cost. The best and really only way to ensure ethical behavior within a business is to institutionalize it – establishing a culture of “self-governance” through inspiration and leadership.
In another example, a supervisor that can best be described as a narcissist, would often come into work and fire people just because. One day an employee was touted publicly as an outstanding performer and recognized for their contributions. Approximately two or three days later the employee was terminated.
The Pharaohs leading the cadres managing the work teams that built the pyramids understood leadership.
The Imperial Emperors knew how to lead the Chinese civil service that held China together for thousands of years.
The Moguls of India and their administrators understood how to lead.
The Holy Roman Empire needed no leadership books or journal articles.
Leadership as practised by the Egyptian Pharaohs and Chinese emperors still lives with us in our language today: “stepping out of line” and “getting the chop” referring to the soldier of the emperor and Pharaohs with a sabre on horseback that would chop off the head of anyone who literally stepped out of the single file line of workers.
