In both stories, he explains how both body and mind are used to accomplish numerous tasks effectively. He argues about the hidden area of learning that blue-collar workers have to go through such as multi-tasking, memorization and problem solving. Though I concede that experience is a key factor when trying to learn something new, I insist that a formal education is important. I believe Rose missed a great point when considering which side to take in his essay, sure the jobs he mentioned require some mind activity but I see it as taking the easy way out and not going to school. I mean who wouldn’t have to have a
PCC managers never gave up, and hired the employees who they want. Also Faraci encouraged the flatbeds manager to let his star employee go to portables. Another issue was that HP compensation structure was not set up to reward managers and other employees the way the senior team would have liked to compensate them. So, incentives which was taken gotten limited. New organizational design made possible an autonomous unit to some degree, but it wasn’t perceived sufficient by general manager of the unit.
One way it can be seen is that his practice was built in ways so that clients could realize value from their services. Turnaround time, accessibility to senior members in the firm, meeting deadlines, and providing services in a cost effective manner were important to his clients and therefore were the core values of his firm. He also strived on providing exceptional services to his clients, because he also needed to gain work through referrals. They also mention that they provide the best environment to work in which can be seen in a variety of ways. They refused to do form filling type of work because it was not stimulating enough for their lawyers.
Equally important “In The Achievement of Desire” by Richard Rodriguez, he expresses that he knew he was different, that his family life and his academic life was opposed and when he reads Hoggarts description of the scholarship boy he realized there where others like him whom did not fit the mold defined by society. Malcom X in “Learning to Read” talks about his struggles and overcoming his identity. Studies have shown that families from certain social classes are educated at different levels and the schools prepare children for the same life which is represented from their social class however this is not always the case as Richard Rodriguez and Malcolm X demostrates in their articles. Several studies declare that the social class leads to the type of education one will receive and as a result will shape their education and social class. Aulette describes in her “Changing American Families” reading how the stratification systems of class mold our society.
There needs to more training available for both the employer and other employees to enable them to work with and offer the person with autism to hold down a job. This may lead to low self-esteem and lack of purpose in their everyday lives. When I worked in retail I offered two young men who had ASD jobs, this turned out to be a great success. As long as what was expected of them was explained simply at a level which suited them they were able to carry out their work to a very high
Blue collar jobs have given many men and women to be able to provide for their family. Adults would work in factories and shops usually wearing a blue collar, tough, and denim t-shirt. This is how the term blue-collar had come about. People who didn’t pursue higher education sought out blue-collar jobs. However, due to economic changes and technology breakthroughs, blue collar jobs required further training and education.
What can influence the way a manager or supervisor navigates this minefield, besides experiencing it firsthand, learning about the short comings of other managers and supervisors who share their story. During the course of the project, Tom Green and his experience at Dynamic Displays is a case study in which a student can see how to better apply power and influence to navigate the workplace and a chosen career. Where did the power players of Dynamic Displays appropriately use and miss use power and information? The Problem No two people are alike; Davis expected his replacement to be as much like he was and use his style when Green took on the promotion. It appears as though Green does everything but the expectations that Davis envisions; however, it is not evident that Davis ever clearly laid out the expectations to the subordinate.
Michel Dean Mahler Chris Ellen Lamb English 111-08 Better Than Average Rough Draft 1/20/2012 Better Than Average “I Just Wanna Be Average” by Mike Rose is the story of every man. It is the story that teaches us all an important lesson…low expectations often produce poor results. The story inspires each of us to strive to see not who you are, but who you have the potential to become in spite of (rather than because of) our circumstances. But in order for this to happen, you must be willing to reach beyond your environment. The story addresses a variety of social and economic issues.
My experiences growing up did not help me develop my diversity consciousness as much as I would've liked. Getting a college education and learning about diversity in this class and my human resources class have helped me develop an understanding that people and businesses must understand that the world, and specifically America, is diverse and we must learn and grow to help make it a successful achievement. The most difficult challenge for me will be stepping out of my comfort zone. I'm not exactly a hermit, but I do like to keep to myself a lot of time. I will need to put myself out there, ask questions when I don't have any clue what I'm talking about, and be more open to talking to different people.
Mohanad R. Mohsen WG4a Alisha 8/14/ 2013 E1D1 Cash for good grades Motivation is the power that pushing us to do things we have to do, things that we know very well they required to achieve our goals. And only students who stay motivated about their study make success. But the secret here is find the good reasons behind this motivation, and the paying for the students for good grades seem like sending the wrong messages to make them doing well for the wrong reasons and this causes future negative effects. Responsibility doesn’t always come with rewards like people don’t get money for keep their houses clean or for eating healthy meals. If we paid for students when they get good grads may be this habit will stick with them for life.
