How Will Measure Your Life?

June 01st 2018
Life is not all about money. I agree with Christensen assertions in his seminal article (Chamorro-Premuzic, 2013). That’s how I will measure my life. The main reason people search for jobs and want to build careers is all because of money. Love for money inculcates in people’s mind such that they strain so much to know what minimum an individual needs to have and what other motivator drives life instead of focusing on how to maximize all the motivators in life apart from money. If money is what drives your life, you end up feeling unappreciated, demeaned, worthless and even frustrated. This can occur  at the end of the day  when you have not reached your target. However, when one view life in a different perspective where you feel you are recognized for achieving valuable things and having a positive impact on someone’s life that changes your attitude towards several things surrounding you such as how you relate to people. In the business world, management is seen as one of the honorable professionals since it gives one an opportunity to help people grow, contribute to people’s success and recognized for achievements. The same way companies allocates resources skillfully is the same way an individual should allocate personal time, energy and responsibilities in life.  In real life if you are not certain of your sense of purpose, you are likely to put your strength and efforts in things that do not matter. Making a resolution that every day you live to be...

Based on the role you are playing and the available information… What issues are most important to you? (List in order of importance) Based on my role as the governor of Seaborne, there are important there are important issues that are most important to me. First, the most vital thing in my leadership position is to ensure that I provide development to my state as this is my last term in power. What is your BATNA? Reservation Price? Target? My target as the Governor is to create job opportunities to many people in my state because they are engaged in constructive works and at the end they will earn income. This development will create employment both short and long run. Because of my political ambitions as the governor of Seaborne, I will also consider the needs of organized labor and ensure finally that unions share in the profits of the port (Dispute Resolution Research Centre). The construction of this port will also lead to increased revenue as more industries will lease or purchase land near the port. My target at the end of my tenure to leave Seaborne developed unlike how I found it. Who has more power–you or your opponent? What are your sources of power? What are theirs? Implementing the development of the port is a big challenge because of my opponents. Other parties involved in this negotiation have different issues. What do you think is your opponent is BATNA? Reservation Price? Goal-Target? For example, the environmental league is generally opposed to the...

Men’s Experience of Inequality

June 01st 2018
Man-box comprises the set of standards, rules as well as expectations that regulate men’s behavior, ideas, and thoughts. Such unwritten codes confine men to the man-box, which dictates how men conduct themselves and reinforces individual opinions and beliefs of women. Men are placed into the man-box in a variety of ways. For instance, men are taught to be strong, to indicate anger only as well as to be leaders. Anything that differs from such expectations such as sadness, fear, and vulnerability shows weakness because such behaviors, as well as feelings, are set aside for women. According what I have learned since I was a boy, I think men are placed into this box. For instance, as a little boy, I used to be emotional, and I could cry over something little. I remember my uncle telling me that I should not be crying more often as a girl and that I should be strong as a man. Due to men being placed into this man-box, various dysfunctions have arisen. For example, a majority of men equate feminity with weakness and less value. Also, men also learn to believe that the main purpose of females is to serve, support, satisfy, comfort as well as entertain men. In short, men are taught to objectify women by seeing them as body parts rather than human beings with feelings, views, ideas and thoughts. The situation has in turn led to numerous women being abused both physically and sexually. Men’s liberation from the man-box is tied to women’s liberation since, in various...
