* Referent power – generally known as personal power or charisma and comes from the high regard the individual is held by others should this falter or wane then this form of power vanishes, but is often employed in conjunction with other sources. Other sources of power include knowledge and personal contacts and alliances. Power is not the same as leadership, nor is it the same as authority. Conducting an appraisal is fraught with dangers for both the appraiser and appraise. Key amongst these is a failure to recognise
The Theban Plays: Hubris and the Corruption of Power Throughout history the influence of power over others has had a sour effect on those with it. Some might say that power tends to corrupt the minds of those who are less mature, or more overconfident. It takes someone with a clear mind and good judgment in order to use power wisely and responsibly. However, in The Theban Plays, we rarely ever see power used responsibly by the characters that possess it. In The Theban Plays, the presence of power clouds the minds of Laius and Jocasta, gives Oedipus his hubris, and causes Creon to become hypocritical.
I prefer not to be touched so much. Some people feel disrespected to be greeted with a left hand, when it my be acceptable in another culture. There are so many examples of how individuals want to be treated differently that I could go on listing them, but I wont. I will, however touch on the fact that some people think that that they deserve more then they actually do. It may be unfair to be required to treat a peer like royalty simply because he or she feels entitled to such.
The publicity of the case and the one-sided role of the media caused a majority of people, internationally, to be biased and influenced. This impact then led to numerous problems and difficulties in being treated fairly, such as finding an impartial jury. This factor of having preconceived idea meant that the jury had already decided Lindy Chamberlain’s fate, opposing the justice being “served,” legitimately. Wiping away any chance for Lindy Chamberlain to prove her innocence creates an inevitable outcome. The Chamberlains being judged under a heavily biased jury influenced by the media, therefore shows the maltreatment of the case by the justice system and the society.
1, 2, Societal attitudes and beliefs can impact individuals with sensory loss in quite a negative way because people in society can be very judgmental towards people with disabilities, and put them in a group of people with below average intelligence and assume they can’t do or think the same way as other people without disabilities can. People in society can also be very prejudice and ignorant and think they are better than people with sensory loss, also thinking it gives them the right to make fun at them and making life difficult in the process. Although not all people think the same way there are many other people in society that are very open towards individuals with disabilities and sensory loss and can be very helpful and kind, this can have a positive impact on people’s lives. 1, 3, There are a range of factors that societal attitudes and beliefs impact on service provisions, discrimination is one of the biggest problem in today’s society , people with sensory loss are treated differently, and there a lot of barriers that need to be overcome, service provision is a term used to describe a wide range of activities, including the provision of assistive devices, rehabilitation services, occupational therapy and health services. Although there are a lot of places like this there is still the need to raise awareness so
Some may begrudge a colleague for doing a task a certain way because they think it is wrong but in another culture it is considered acceptable . Our life experiences have most likely affected the way we think about people and we all have our own personal like and dislikes too .All this can have a significant effect on how we think of things. It is unlikely that we can
Some people believe with superior and disrespect towards people. People that behave this way normally missing trust, belief, or faith in themselves. They repeatedly have uncertainty about their value of life. Individuals that battle this disorder take chance in endangering themselves to lack of success. They are quick to put the blame on others for their failure instead of taking control for their actions (Kassin, Fein, & Markus, 2013).
When the subordinates were allowed to engage in such ways, unethical behavior was the result of non-caring, untrained, or too much flexibility by management. Another reason for subordinates’ unethical behavior was due to management’s inability to apply motivators, and recognized the individuals that performed with determination and commitment; and this resulted in subordinates’. This study did answer the questions presented in this study. Subordinates behaviors’ become unethical when the inability to apply motivation, concern, and recognition to individuals and the absence of ethics is all too obvious (Withanage,
Also from these examples, we can see how an increase in power can lead to unethical behavior. It is unethical in the sense that when one gains this power or control, he/she feels that he/she has earned the right or authority to do so with total disregard for human rights. Ultimately, authority with total control destroys the honesty of what is right and wrong completely. To be human is to make mistakes but if a society is modeled after the leadership of a human with supreme authority, corruption is bound to occur. References Kiernan, B.
Leaders who use these powers must understand they come with strengths as well as weaknesses, for example in my opinion those leaders who use coercive power to influence by fear don’t really earn their subordinates and peers respect and true loyalty and sooner or later will fail. Leaders who are subject matter expert frequently inspire the respect, trust and loyalty of subordinates, peers and superior alike. Rewarding power could be both bad and good as it rewards deserving people and sometimes will reward the not so deserving ones creating conflict in the organization. Charisma power might lead those who like the leader, but the leader may not be knowledgeable or skill enough to make the right decisions and finally referent power could empower those with the resources and personal traits but once the resources run out, the leader may not be
