First- I think each member of our group was committed to do their best as time and resources allowed. Each contributed to the group in meetings and in presentations. Keith often was the leader behind our group presentations. I would say that he always was but I'm not sure that my memory is accurate. He came up with the ideas for the presentations that we ended up using, he coordinated them, made sure that everyone knew what they were doing and that they were going to do their part and be there on the day of t ...

  • Communication Progresses Between People - 802 words
    Communication Progresses Between People In today's hustle and bustle of everyday life, men, women, and children walk past one another without even a friendly smile or hello. As global technology grows, communication between individuals gets more distant and less personal. Even in families, messages are left on the answering machine or as notes on the fridge. Therefore, with todays' highly competitive technological world, it is vital to receive and maintain some old-fashioned inter-personal communication. Communication throughout history progresses from face-to-face to smoke signals, to the Pony Express to Canada Post, to the telephone to telex machines to modems. The fax machine is so impers ...

  • Effectiveness - 369 words
    Effectiveness I consider my ability to communicate verbally to be just okay. There are a few reasons why I would evaluate myself this way. One is that I have a tendency to mumble. It is possible that I mumble because I try to talk too fast. I do not know why I try to talk so fast. I realize that I have this problem and when I carry on a conversation I try to slow my speech down so that it can be understood. Another problem that I have with communicating is that I talk soft or quietly. I try to speak loud enough for people to understand what I am saying. When I start talking really fast and quiet whom ever I am talking with will ask me to repeat myself, and it bugs me. I would like to perfect ...

    Employee Attitude/Organizational Behavior Introduction A happy worker makes for a good worker you say? Well, United Airlines had somewhat of an all for one employee attitude in July 1994. They announced the purchase of their own company for which they work for $5 billion through ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan).

    Hurston, Zora How It Feels to Be Colored Me My Bag English Lit./Comp. Perhaps one of the most profound pieces of African American short story literature is Zora Hurstons' How It Feels to Be Colored Me. In the conclusion of her short story, Hurston depicts her own life experiences through the personification of a brown bag and its contents. To detail my life through mere contents of a paper bag is a difficult task, however, I am a simple man among many, trying not to drown in an ocean of complexity more commonly known as society. My bag is comprised of many objects, some which I have yet to use and others that have already expired. The first content inside my bag is a pack of wet matches that ...

  • Is Anybody Listening, I Mean Really Listening - 1,337 words
    Is Anybody Listening, I Mean Really Listening? Is Anybody Listening, I Mean Really Listening? I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen. Ernest Hemingway. Often when a misunderstanding occurs, it is attributed to a lack of communication, which most of the time implies that whoever was delivering the message did not do an effective job. But what about the other side, the listener? Listening is important. It is the communication skill most often used in human interaction. Between 45 and 55 percent of people's communication time will be spent in listening to others (Curtis, Floyd and Winsor, p. 56). As our textbooks tell us, listening is no ...

    ... iance and hard work from employees. The majority of men lean toward the traditional 'command and control' style and were more likely to view job performance as a series of transactions with subordinates offering rewards for services rendered or punishment for inadequate performance (Brody, 1994). Women understand the effectiveness of immediate praise and tend to be more supportive of one another and the people who work for them. Men wait for proof of achievement before extending gratitude or compliments. In the book, Selling is a Woman's Game, Nicki Joy outlines the characteristics she feels are unique to women that make them prone to leadership roles: "The talent to multi-task, willingn ...

  • Sesame Street And The Death Of Reading - 602 words
    Sesame Street And The Death Of Reading Steve XXXXX Sociology Article 3 Sesame Street and the Death of Reading was an interesting article to read. The author explains many who actually sit down and watch the program see no educational gain for their children. It teaches kids how to read (in some areas of the program), but it doesnt teach these things that are needed most when learning to read: language, active reflection, persistence, and internal control. Sesame Street teaches words, numbers, etc. only for a short one minute time frame on the program. Im sure the kid will remember the word for a while, but in order for growing brains to learn is to repeat what it is being taught - something ...
