Wolfe Professor – Dr. Shawn Schwaner Introduction Change is inevitable however some people don’t like changes. It’s been argued every time that change is the only factor which takes you to the sky of success and prosperity. Development of the nations in the world is witnessed only because they accepted the change in their operation and function. This paper is designed to evaluate the negative growth of the Roaring Dragon Hotel (RDH) due to the change in the management and operation. It will further discuss the solution and options which can be used to overcome the issues faced by the Hotel.
If that wasn’t enough the companies long-time creative director, Joanne Ooi, is leaving the company creating a void in the leadership role of the company’s brand vision. To solve all of this the company can hire from the outside or promote from within but despite this decision they have to handle how they can defend their domestic market share, their international market share, and be able to move into new markets while not straying away from its fundamental values of being a sophisticated, individualistic, and ancient Chinese inspired luxury brand producer. To solve this problem the company should promote its current Chief of Clothing Design, Joseph Li to the role of creative director. This will help the designers feel respected by the management and help improve their work as they feel they are a better part of the process with one of their own running the process. Also, Joseph has international experience at various other companies and can help with the expansion into new markets and since he is Hong Kong-born Chinese he still has a connection to Chinese culture.
The responsibilities of an audit partner in an accounting firm is to review the accounting actions performed by their client and notify them of any corrections that are required. The CFO of a large public company should oversee all of the company’s finances so that it is steered in the right direction.

The stress of the audit partner is tremendous and choosing that profession is one that I would prefer not to undertake.

However, since today the position and the possession of a good leader are always desired by many covetous men, I suppose that a smart leader today should concern war and the preparation thereof, as Machiavelli advised. Through war, he can consolidate his power, and protect his people as well as his territory. Last year, Chinese government declared to take back one of two Vietnamese famous islands, called Hoang Sa, which belonged to Vietnam for many centuries. Being afraid of inferior if a fight really happened, the Vietnam Communist Government hopelessly gave its island up to China.

Doing poorly and conceding often requires that negotiators not be embarrassed; that is, that they "save face" for themselves personally and for their governments at home. Let's start this discussion with the famous leaders mentioned so far in the course: In the Week 6 readings you see their own need to "save face" for themselves and their countries. What are some of the great examples shown so far of "saving face" on the part of diplomats? What does "saving face" mean in diplomatic
Name: Artem Cherepanov Student ID number: 6509934 Major: International Business Management Number of Words: 922 Submission Date: 18th April, 2012 Question Title: Maslow’s hierarchy of needs as a way of understanding employee motivation in contemporary Chinese business. Since industrialization, all managers have questioned how they can motivate workers in their business. Usually people think that money is the best motivator, however this evidence is not similar for all companies. As Maslow argued, peoples’ needs were very various so he created the hierarchy of human needs based on deficiency and growth needs in order to help managers in workers’ motivation (Robinson, 2004). However, the Maslow’s theory does not fully explain the motivation of numbers of workers especially in contemporary Chinese business as it has a lot of disadvantages.

Recommendations: The HI should communicate their vision and rationale for change to the RDH employees through meetings and involve them in the change process. They should assure the employees that their culture will be protected.
