My grandmother has acquired the most sincere respect from me, and is the true backbone of our family. My grandmother is truly a self-made, independent woman, and I will return to her the happiness she has given to me. I often wonder what the past was like for my grandmother, trying to fathom how the lucky hands of life are dealt so unfairly. By looking at her now, I can only imagine the hardships she has endured, and the many obstacles she has hurdled as the years transpire. To illustrate, I often study her hands, the painful imperfections, which took years of working multiple jobs, making sure life for her children was as carefree as possible.
I lived in my elder sisters hand-me-downs for many years. This has taught me, not only the value of money and material items, but also how to be patient. I can now employ patience within my work place, and can understand why life might be financially challenging for some of the elderly people that I look after. I was always considered as being a bit of a 'soft touch' when I was younger, constantly letting others have their way. In my older life, and particularly within my job role, this has taught me that I can be emphatic and sympathetic towards people.

Although she has expressed interest in moving forward at a different position along with a different supervisor, her long-term plans remain the same, which are to remain with the company at large and share the accountability that she provides with others.

If Joel decides to close one of the stores, which one should he close? Causal Chain of the problems: Being the fact that Connie St. Marseille had worked in the industry for many years, she was ready to retire but Joel feared the new West 49 store in the New Sudbury Centre would pose a major threat to the business.

The changes and new structure had created dissatisfaction and a fair amount of anxiety among many of DSS’s consultants, but Chris felt her team had overcome their concerns to become a very effective group. They had worked together well, avoided the conflicts that often plague these kinds of teams, and generally maintained a high level of motivation and satisfaction. Most of all, Chris was proud of the work her team had done. They had created a budget and planning system that the team believed would be embraced by DSS’s clients. The team had not gotten much support from other groups at DSS in developing the system, so team members had done much of the technical work on their own that would have normally been done by support people in the company.
However, throughout her first few years with Apple, she started to let the company manage her career. She had a great mentor, Roy Weaver, who continuously found opportunities to give her visibility and more responsibility. Naturally, she started to develop a personal trust in Roy and she concluded that he knew what was best for her and her career.

Helen here is contributing rather than solving the issue of losing good employees, which is an early sign of a weak management in an organization. As a leader of the organization she needs to look at the issue holistically, be more of a mentor catering to the needs of every employee under her wings. When a company starts to lose its work force to its competitors, the leaders of the organization in an urgent need to fix the issue starts to find fault in individual managers rather than the organization as a whole in a hope that the eliminating such managers might be a solution to the problem. Helen is doing exactly the same when she questions Bob and Mary on their efforts to stop employees moving into another organization. Mary on the other hand is concerned about the firm and other employee’s wellbeing but her lack of employee management skill holds her back in effectively solving the problem.
