1.3 Standards are set to the way we should be working. We use them to compare how we are working and make us think about if any improvements are necessary. Standards help us to develop professionally and provide a good service. 1.4 If you do not listen to or understand other people’s values, beliefs and experiences, it can cause a lot of conflict and can affect your working practices. By listening to and understanding other people that you work with or care for you can understand things better and learn to respect each other and communicate better.
I have the opportunity to reread what I have written and then make corrections so that the point that I am getting at is full understood by the reader. I learned to do this from trial and error. I found that more people understand my writing as opposed to me talking directly to them sometime. C) Some symbols that people use to communicate are Morris code. They also use sign language.
Associate Level Material ViYanna R Langager Critical Thinking Assumptions and Fallacies In our text, The Art of Thinking, it clearly defines what assumptions are. Assumptions can definitely interfere with critical thinking and it is necessary to avoid making assumptions in my thinking if I am to be successful. Assumptions are things taken for granted that obstruct the thinking process. (The Art of Thinking, Chapter 10, Page 186) If I 'assume' that all others will share my passion for a certain subject, I am likely to be very disappointed. 'Assuming' that my presentation of the subject is as clear to others as it is to me will likely bring many conflicts as misunderstandings arise.
The team manager will be in charge of managing the processes associated with the software developing; this will be his main focus and priority on the project because after all he/she is the person who is going to be held accountable. Earlier on, I expressed that if we were to sacrifice either the technical or the people skills on a project manager, I would choose technical over people, and here is why. A project manager who has great people skills is the nice person who everyone likes to work with, but in the end does not quite have a clue of what he/she is doing. These project managers have difficulty on projects because they are not successful due to the deficiency of knowledge. While we want a project manager to have better technical rather than people skills, we must consider that he/she must at least know how to deal with the team members.
I did this anticipating some team members may not comprehensively understand the difference between them without researching these topics as was the case with me. I thought this would be a good way to save time so the meeting would be more effective. During the team meeting, we (1) talked about discussion and dialogue to ensure all team members understood the difference between these two topics and why establishing dialogue is important, (2) talked about the importance of ground rules, and why ground rules are necessary to achieve a level of effective dialogue, and (3) discussed the twelve components of compassionate communication and how they help build trust, resolve conflict, and increase social intimacy within a
When in individuals communication being able to be organized and all of your ideas are in order will help make it easier for the receiver to understand. In a conflict disagreement you have to learn how to receive feedback and not get defensive on others views.

| Analysis of the Life Styles Inventory | | Summary and Analysis of the Life Styles Inventory The Life Styles Inventory (LSI) is designed to provide individuals with timely feedback concerning ways that their personal and professional lives can be changed for the better. Using a series of “styles” to measure various aspects of life, the LSI can provide some startling accurate results when respondents are honest and forthright in their responses. This paper provides a summary and analysis of the results of the administration of the LSI to the author, followed by a summary of the research and important findings in the conclusion. Self-Actualizing Style A score in the medium range that is close to the high range means that people with this score are “generally confident” concerning their ability to effect change and improvement in themselves and others. Individuals with this score are pragmatic with a wide range of interests and are able to excel at those things that are deemed rewarding.
Project Task-List Memo CMGT/410 February 4, 2013 Project Task-List Memo Attn: Management and Stakeholders Project Task-List Accurate estimates are extremely important for effective project management because in the absence of accurate estimates, the project planning will go completely wrong and the project team will not be able to achieve the desired project objectives in terms of scope, timeframe and costs. Lack of accurate estimates will lead to shortages of resources, shortage of time and chaos during the project. Accurate estimates are the foundation for efficient planning for the project, be it related to scheduling, budget, etc. Accurate estimates ease the burden on project managers to keep everything under control. Some of the steps that project managers can take to improve the accuracy of estimating projects include: 1) Detailed analysis of the project scope and requirements at the planning stage and clear understanding of requirements in advance.
Critical Thinking in the Decision Making Process Introduction Making decisions is something each of us is faced with on a daily basis and regardless of the complexity of the decision; we must establish a method that will produce a positive outcome. Before a decision can be made a problem must be identified and addressed. Applying critical thinking skills to a problem set allows a person to step through a process towards making a well informed decision. Paul and Elder define critical thinking as “the art of thinking about thinking while thinking in order to make thinking better. It involves three interwoven phases: it analyzes thinking, it evaluates thinking, and it improves thinking” (p. xvii).
Thinking and decision making is an important part of one’s ability to come up with the best solution and decisions for issues or problems one could or will encounter every day. If answers to problems that may come up in one’s life were obvious, and readily provided, then one’s choices would be automatic, and working through a problem to find the solution or best course of action would be unnecessary. One must try to think through or predict accurately his or her reasoning and judgment for his or her decision making no matter what events or issues may arise. Understanding which problems are solvable is a vital part of thinking and decision making that can have an effect on the attitudes and behaviors globally. Compare and Contrast Three Different Types of Thinking In the world today, there are ultimately two types of thinking that are used.
