This paper is going to be about my top five themes that I got from taking the test. The results is received from this test will help me have a better understanding of how to become successful in a number of different ways through my personality. Strengths Quest Reflection Paper Strengths Finder Themes Everyone has strengths as well weaknesses, however too often we dwell on are weaknesses rather than build on our personal strengths. The reason for identifying my personal strengths are to make better decisions, handle stress, develop better study skills, choose a major that best fits me, and to deal with all the issues and new things I will come across as freshmen in college. Once I recognize these strengths I can achieve success not only in college, but in my overall life.
However, having someone that fits the organization’s culture and missions is also important for Tanglewood. Specific or General KSAOs: I think that Tanglewood should focus on the specific KSAOs because any organization would want to hire someone that can fit the job competencies with a vast knowledge of the job and the skills to perform effectively. Exceptional or Acceptable Workforce Quality: Tanglewood doesn’t really target temporary employees so exceptional workforce quality would work better for them. This would give them the opportunity to invest in their associates and make sure that they grow within the organization. Active or Passive Diversity: I would say that Tanglewood should look into active diversity because it meets the diverse needs of the customers.
2.3 Describe how own values, belief systems and experiences may affect working practice? • Everyone has different values/beliefs/preferences what you believe in, what you see as important, acceptable or desirable is an essential part of who you are. • React positively to people who share your values and less warmly to people who have different priorities. • When you develop friendships, it is natural to spend time with people who share your interests and values. • Professional relationships you develop with people you support are another matter; you are required to provide the same quality support for all, not just for those who share your views and beliefs.

Values, belief systems and experiences may affect my working practise because if I treat people differently or force my views and opinions on to people it can cause conflict.

If language barriers are a problem, what actions might be taken to resolve this? The first step is to understand that cultural diversity is a mixture of races, cultures, backgrounds and ages and not only a matter of black and white. The next step would be to conduct regular cultural sensitivity awareness classes for the workers so they adhere to it and encourage not only one another but clients also. Educating oneself on the differences in beliefs and cultures can also be eye opening and help better understanding of future scenarios. 4.
LSI Style and Interpretations MGMT-591-10572 Leadership & Org Behavior 9/14/2014 LSI Style and Interpretations The LSI survey is a great tool that is meant to help people understand what it is that motivates them, how they interact with others around them, and how they can use their strengths to better manage their interpersonal relationships to help them be successful. In taking this test, I focused on being honest and truthful in my responses in order to get a better understanding of how I may have weaknesses in my relationships with others in my work life and in my family/personal life as well. In doing so, I found that my LSI styles circumplex is rather varied across the 3 groups and, I believe, is indicative of how I am in different circumstances in my life. PERSONAL THINKING STYLES My primary personal thinking style is shown to be affiliative. In reading about the affiliative style, I noticed some attributes that I believe describe me very well.
NVQ 3 Adults What Methods are effective in forming, maintaining and ending relationships with individuals and key people? It is important to be aware of the individual’s level of communication and ability and to use there chosen form of communication wherever possible. As I have been keyworker for many individuals I think they need to be aware of the clear boundaries that are put in place and this also needs to be consistent within all staff that will be supporting the individual. This is very important to form positive relationships whilst still keeping professional boundaries in place. You need to be a good listener, patient and be prepared to put in the effort as it can sometimes be very frustrating especially if there are communication difficulties.
According to Blanchard and Thacker (2007), this is necessary to show how important learning is for the success of the company as a whole. (p.91) 5.

Cultural relativism Denise Lewis ANT 101: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (GSF1517D) Instructor: Fae Goodman Date Submitted The comprehension of a different culture practices tends to be difficult when only used in comparison to one’s own culture and practices. It may seem not normal for one’s own standards yet to those of the opposite cultures our own practices may not be considered as normal or logical to them as well. In order to be able to understand any culture, one must really know the meaning of cultural relativism. “Cultural relativism is the idea that the significance of an act is best understood by the standards of the actor’s own culture” (Crapo, 2013). Using this definition will lay the foundation of this paper.
Cultural relativism in my opinion is how you look at someone’s culture, beliefs, and rituals although you may not do these same things you can agree to them as being relative or relevant to their own personal and social views. Cultural relativism is important to anthropologist because when they do fieldwork they have to look at cultures with a holistic view and have to see everything done and in their own point of view and relate it to the culture of the society of people doing it. Not to be understood by other people but totally understood by the society doing it so right or wrong is culture specific. There is no standard for morality in today’s society nobody has the right to be judged by their customs. Cultural relativist believe that all cultures are worthy in their own right and are of equal value no one that is not in the society can say whether it is right or wrong for some of the practices done to be wrong.
