Yet, for all of Stalin’s positive accomplishments, he also seemed quite the negative ruler, First, Stalin developed a system of collective farming that combined once privately owned farms into large farms, operated by the government. This put an end to individual profits. New he stressed, everything for the state must come first, the individual is
Contingency Theory has various styles of leadership and no two workers are motivated the same way (Lewis, Packard, & Lewis, 2007, p. 278). Based on the interaction on how the supervisor and the employee’s role intertwined with each other it was clear to see that the supervisor assumed and expected certain expectations in the workplace and assumed that along with that the client’s needs would also be met. As we seen the situation play out we also noticed the lack of motivation to practice the token system with the clients coming from the employees’ point of view. The challenge there was that competency and practice of the method were not being held to the same standard as the supervisors’ vision. If the supervisor has a strong sense of that method and knowledge of it, the employees were not reflexing the same in this example.
In addition, World War II introduced change through industrialisation, which was key to Russia’s success in the war. These key reforming leaders and other factors of change saw Russia grow from a very deprived country in 1856 to an industrial superpower in 1964. Alexander II became known as ‘Alexander the Great Reformer’ and ‘the Tsar Liberator’ which suggests that his work and reforms changed the nature of Russian government and society to a large extent. The emancipation of the Serfs in 1861 initially appeared to have major benefits for the serfs. As Alexander II said: “We vowed in our hearts to fulfil the mission which is entrusted to Us and to surround with Our affection and Our Imperial solicitude all Our faithful subjects of every rank and condition”2.
However, after 1924, the USSR was a clear dictatorship, which meant that the culture was controlled by the élite and is used to portray the elite positively. There is no denying that culture performed a political role in the USSR in this time period, as culture is heavily effected by politics and vice versa, and so in this essay, I will be evaluating the extent to which Soviet culture performed a political role in the USSR in the years 1924-1953. Art performed a highly political role in the USSR in the years 1924-1953. In the early years of the Bolshevik state, experimental and abstract art was allowed under Lenin. This all changed however with the change in leadership after 1929 and the emergence of Stalin as the ‘vozhd’.
In the article “Ben& Jerry’s: Caring Capitalism”, by Jennifer J. Laabs, the author write “Ben and Jerry created a company to make the ice cream and said: “Let it be a worker’s paradise and let it be fun”” (line 9-11). That means Ben and Jerry establish their company not only making money but it also attempt to build a pattern of a company concerns about creating a better life for its workers. In my mind, I absolutely agree with this standpoint, for the development of business needs to balance with the living quality of workers in order to create a progressive society. (Ex1) In the past, we can see many strikes of workers to require for improving working condition, and these struggles is long and bite for workforce. For example, in Chicago, 1886 Haymarket Riot strike resulted in the death of
Many leaders approach employee diversity as a situation to be avoided. They also use the old motto of treating people equally and it will provide equal results. Within any organizational culture, most people don’t feel the same when treated the same as everyone else because not everyone is the same. Most people would like to be categorized as their own individual. A research firm based in Indianapolis stated; “that employers spend too little time showing worker they matter, as manifested in lack of communication and lack of interest in new ideas and contributions.” Many employees feel unappreciated because their boss’ poor performance and it caused many workers to quit their jobs.
In Russia, communism has had a tremendous impact on the history of the country, while constitutional monarchy has been key to shaping the development of Great Britain. Communism, originally proposed by Karl Marx in his Communist Manifesto (1848), aimed to solve the mistreatment and poverty suffered by the industrial working class by creating a cooperative, classless society where all property and profit are shared equally. However, the communist ideal of peaceful societal change that would benefit everyone was not demonstrated in countries where it was implemented, the first of which
‘The main aim of Brezhnev’s policies was to maintain the Soviet system’ to what extent do you agree with this statement? Leonid Brezhnev assumed the position of chairman of the Presidium in 1977. He sought to make the Soviet Union the military equal of the United States and promote its political influence around the world through a continuation of Khrushchev’s policy of détente. Although in contrast to Khrushchev, his priorities were stability, continuity and conservatism. However, throughout his period as leader, Russia saw the dominance of corruption and nepotism.
Goleman defines a leader as a person who identifies a human need and designs a solution to meet the need.Most leaders in our workplace are very competent when it comes to leadership roles but always lack the human aspect of leadership.Research have shown that mist outstanding leaders in organizations are those who can combine emotional intelligence and rational leadership.Many leaders who are excellent are denied promotion to senior positions because they lack the human aspect of leadership.

Goleman(1998)discusses five component of emotional intelligence. The fist
Good communication skills can be a be that kind word spoke to fellow co worker that is having a terrible day or it or it may that kind spoke to a worker that has self esteem issues or it just might be that motivating word that may make that employee may want to move to that next level within the company. A kind word or having and mentoring spirit with words creates such a positive environment. Communications skills can create the opposite such as;Unkind words can break a person to the down. Bad communication skills create total chaos in a workplace it has people afraid to ask for help when needed,a total moral buster,no team players,not wanting to go that extra mile for one another and just plan not coming to work to have to deal with that boss who has issues. When the communication skills are bad it just radiates within a place it is has create attendance problems,poor productivity,and just negative vibes everywhere from the time you pull in the parking lot makes that yo day feel like it last forever.
