A boundary must then be set around the behaviour by communicating why the behaviour is inappropriate and informing the aggressor. Discussing the behaviour with the aggressor by telling them how it affects other people feel must be done. You must then identify and communicate consequences to the aggressor if the behaviour does not stop. Submissive Behaviour Submissive behaviour is when a person is shy from telling a person how they really feel and not seeking to achieve their needs, particularly when other people have conflicting needs. A submissive person usually fears upsetting others because they do not wish to hurt their feelings or fear them.
Members must overcome the need to protect themselves. One way to tell if you have trust in members they do not hold back, air dirty laundry, and admit their mistakes or weaknesses. If there is a lack of debate this indicates absence of trust. Dysfunction number two is fear of conflict. Teams that are lacking on trust are incapable of engaging in passionate debate about key issues.
“For there are two main obstacles to gaining knowledge of affairs: modesty, which throws the mind into confusion; and fear, which keeps people from undertaking noble exploits once the danger becomes apparent. But folly removes these hindrances in a fine fashion”(42) Naturally given the nature of Folly the answer is herself. But Folly as an answer to attaining wisdom is paradoxical. To overcome the parameters of gaining knowledge she embraces the very opposite. It doesn’t attempt to solve the problem of knowledge, it just distracts from it.
The traditional account of weakness of will is as follows: an agent is weak-willed on an occasion if and only if the agent does not do that which she believes is best. The agent thinks she knows what the best course of action to take is, and knowingly acts against it. However, Holton disagrees, he argues that weakness of the will involves revising one’s resolutions too easily. By this, Holton means it is possible to act against one’s better judgement (that is, being Akratic) but without being weak-willed. Holton, on the other hand, argues that the traditional akratic account is flawed.
People resist change for several reasons. Some people resist change because of poor communication. The changes may not be communicated thoroughly or efficiently therefore leaving people confused and more inclined to resist; miscommunication can cause resistance. Fear of the unknown is also a reason to resist change. People may be scared to do something different because they don't know what the outcome will be; they are scared to take a chance or a risk.
People are often afraid of failure, and when someone believes that you can not do something, it motivates you to not fail, using the fear as fuel for success. Another example is people who are afraid of public speaking. When one is afraid of speaking in front of others, they often use the fear as a motivation to make their speech good, so that they don’t have to worry about having a bad speech as well as speaking in front of others. A comfort zone for people afraid of public speaking or performing would be picturing the crowd in their underwear. Many people are also afraid of loneliness.
Another major aspect to the act of degradation involves the idea of the act being apprehended by oneself and the PUBLIC as demeaning to one’s moral character. Thus, any act of degradation has to be a public event for it to be fully comprehended as “degrading.” Thus, concealed acts of abuse and exploitation cannot be deemed as degrading since they do not lower one’s moral worth. Hill also mentions that just because someone does not oppose to an act of degradation, it does not making it any justifiable. She mentions that surely when one person acts in a cowardly manner in times of portraying moral courage, he/she undermines her character and becomes a subordinate person. However, this does not justify others immoral and degrading actions towards this person, it merely indicates a deterioration of one’s moral courage.
Unfamiliar objects or people are considered threats to our well-being. I understood this ideology when contemplating my own fears. Consider my fear of presenting to an audience whom I don’t know. The main reason for my discomfort is the very fact that I am uncertain of what my audience thinks of me. If I had replaced this very audience with friends who I know, then my fear of presenting would be eliminated.
The not so great this about this is that even if your intentions are good you tend to forget that not everyone thinks like you and is clear on their own sense of values. Believing that you are doing the right thing justifies on what other people’s opinions are. My strengths and weaknesses are that I can not help but to feel damaged whenever I see something going on around me that I can not naturally fix myself. However, a strength is that I look at it as a challenge and make my best effort to over come that challenge and help others even if others do not agree with my process in doing
I sometimes have a weakness in the fact that I may be too honest with my answer and do not think before answering. I realize that when you are communicating with people, they really do not want the truth because it hurts and is offensive. I find that it is much easier for me to communicate, when I have knowledge of the conversation being discussed. I am very weak when it comes to starting a conversation and leading the discussion. I will avoid a conversation as much as possible when I have to present the information to be discussed.
