For instance my ethical lens revealed that I am an independent worker who wants all the credit for the work that I do. So I may be directed more towards not working with a group on anything and taking the initiative to find the answers on my own. It also revealed that I may become a bit exhausted allowing me to use excuses to procrastinate when it comes to my academics. Critical thinking is influenced by my Ethical Lens in a couple tremendous ways. One way is because it shows my tools for analyzing problems is reasoning.
Although I don’t believe this is her strong side, she develops some emotional and social intelligence. Not at the level she should, in my opinion. To be in presence of leadership, a leader must be able to transform traits and skills into behaviors. She is very good planning assignments and arranging schedules. Grace has a lot of way to walk in order to become in a great leader.
In order to do that I would suggest talking to someone to try and overcome any emotional barriers that may exist. Although, this may be difficult it would be for the best. With physical barriers, there is no way to know every physical barrier you may encounter, but equipment malfunction I would suggest checking equipment daily. If a computer is used often try backing up your information to a flash drive or take notes using paper and pen if needed. With semantic barriers it is best to try and talk the problem out and stay open to all comments and solutions.
Even though having the best equipment for the job sounds like a good thing, but no matter how carful the installation process is; problems are always going to appear. To help try to avoid situations where the cabling system does not fail in any situation, there are tools out there to help make the installation easier. Ever tool kit would not be useful, unless they have the right tools for the job. For example, wire map testers, tone generators, and time-domain reflectometers. These are just a few tools that many installers use today when installing a new cabling system.
Conceptual blocking plays a huge role in today's organizational settings and everyday life. Conceptual blocking is a mindset that prevents people from seeing a problem from a unique perspective ("Habits that block creativity"). Conceptual blocks make problem solving difficult as it makes us think with a very restrictive criteria. Because of this, conceptual blocking leads to managers adopting solutions to problems that are a lot less desirable or overlooking ideas that would allow things to be done in an entirely different way. Reduction in conceptual blocking is heavily desired as it fosters outside-the-box thinking and leads to innovation.
Often to amateur writers, the process of writing seems like a chore; a mountain of words to sieve through before they can create a comprehensible wall of text. Lamott uses witty lines and anecdotes from famous writers to show that everyone faces the same problem and provides a simple enough solution. In my mind at least, this short piece has enabled me to look at essays in a different manner. That it’s alright to make mistakes and your first draft can be like throwing poop at a blank canvas; you can always clean it up later. In persuading her readers, Lamott uses ethos, logos and pathos to great effect.
I considered a good writer to be anyone who could effectively convey a message to a reader. Since going through the first two units, I have learned that good writing is quite a bit more complicated. Author Keith Grant-Davie discussed how important to good writing it was to analyze your subject matter to understand who all of your possible audiences are and who you may be representing when writing your material, and to address all parties appropriately. If an author can do this effectively, I believe that it is a crucial part of becoming a good writer. Unit one also taught me to reevaluate how important certain priorities when it came to writing.
This type of complacency and neglect reflects on the individual and there chain of command. Something as simple as checking serial numbers does not take up a lot of time and in the end will keep from unnecessary headaches such as not knowing where your specific piece of equipment is and then tracking it down. Just think of what would happen if you never check the serial number after signing for a piece of equipment then finding out later that it is the wrong item. Now you have signed for and are responsible for an item that you have not inspected yet. Not to mention now you have to waste time tracking that item down and securing it.
The Decision Making Process: How Critical and Creative Thinking Play a Role Decision making is one of the most complicated tasks to be completed; however, for many of us the ability to make a decision clearly and effectively comes naturally. We merely do not like to make the effort and put the time into analyzing and reaching the most desirable outcome. Learning to utilize critical and creative thought processes would eliminate some of the obstacles we run into while making a decision or solving a problem. With learning to think critically and creatively, one is learning to analyze, evaluate, conceptualize, apply, and synthesize the information placed before them and find the most reliable decision or answer. The Decision We all face and make difficult decisions in our life.
