Servant Leadership is a theory for organizational leadership. This idea or concept was founded by Robert Greanleaf back in the 1970's. (Robbins & Coutire, 2000) Servant Leadership is different because it develops employees to bring out the best in them; these leaders facilitate personal growth amongst their employees. Their focus is to meet the needs of those they are working with. These leaders listen to their employees and find a solution to their needs and build a sense of community amongst everyone. “Greenleaf envisioned a servant leader as one who facilitates achievement of a shared vision via the personal development and empowerment of followers. This concept of servant leadership emphasized the interests, development, and empowerment of followers in order to achieve a shared vision.”(Russell, R. 2000). This philosophy has been adopted and practiced by many managers over a long period of time. The servant leader devotes him or her to serving the needs of their employees. Their goal is to develop those whom follow to bring out the best in them. Servant leadership is looked at as being effective because the needs of their…...

A True Christmas

...A True Christmas Once upon a time, in a land far away, a beautiful baby girl was born on the 25th of December. She was called Nicole. On this same day, a gorgeous baby boy was born and he was called Nick. After 20 years, Nicole was shopping in Westland, the biggest shopping mall in Eastford. While there, she met Nick who was taking photos for his ‘Shopaholics’ assignment. The moment Nick saw her, he thought, he knew that she was the one for him. He walked up to her. But she didn’t have quite the same reaction when she saw him. When Nick said hi, Nicole’s reply was “EEW! Who are you?” Nick bowed and said, “Hi I’m Nick. You are?” “Nicole. Now can you move? It’s my birthday soon and I need to buy a present.” She said looking through the clothes on the clothes rack. “For yourself?” Nick asked. “Yes are you deaf?” “Sorry. My birthday is coming up too. When is your birthday?” “25th of December. Excuse me I need to get through.” “Oh My Gosh! Really! My birthday is on the same day too!” Nick said excitedly. “Uh-huh.” Nicole said not really listening. “Hey are you a shopaholic?” “What do you think?” “Well. OK. Can I take a few photos? Do you want to be a model for a photo shoot?” Suddenly Nicole got really excited. “Yes! Yes! Yes!” “OK calm down. Are you free tomorrow?” “Yes!” “OK can we meet up at 12:30, have lunch, take some photos and go home?” “Sure but why are we going to have lunch together?” “Um… so we can get to know each other.” “OK. She said reluctantly.”...

...was more interested in Nicole Perry’s new makeover she had heard about. What if she’s prettier than us now, Christi thought to herself. “What if she thinks just because she’s pretty that she can join the Christi Clique?” “Oh well, it can’t be that bad.” Melissa, Kalli, and Christi stepped into the Cadillac Escalade, buckled their seat belts and started discussing the new year’s latest fashions. When the pearly white car approached Maryville Middle School Christi noticed a giant group of students huddled around someone. “What’s going on over there?” Christi asked, suddenly getting worried. All of her bad thoughts about Nicole Perry flooded back into her mind. The girls were relieved to be out of the car because of Christi’s oh-so annoying mother who was just determined to be a part of their conversation. They rushed over to the crowd. “Um-Hell-o? Why aren’t you people surrounding me?” Christi demanded. The whole group of people turned for about three seconds to stare at Melissa, Kalli, and Christi, but then went back to their business. “Well if they don’t adore us anymore, we’re just going to show them whose boss. Isn’t that right girls?” Melissa and Kalli just stood there with their mouths wide open. The group of people had broken apart and there was Nicole Perry. “Oh Nicole, you look gorgeous! How is your mother doing?” Melissa and Kalli swirled around to see who was talking but Christi already knew. It was her mother. Nicole responded with a......

According to the harvester or the Thermoelectric generator (TEG), in order for it to harvest electricity is to balance the heat side and the cold side of the TEG so for our project there is a tube for the cold side of the TEG to put in ice or cold water to balance the temperature that the TEG needed. The project has two parts the converter and the storage. The converter consists of TEG and a dock to be connected to the other part which is the storage. The storage is......

Psychology Reflective Journal

...personality is attracting to me as I think the knowledge of psychology can help interpret others’ behaviors and thoughts. Undoubtedly, the concept of personality is essential in the field of psychology together with our daily life. My cousins are twins, called Nicole and Mandy, and both of them are 15 years old. I would like to examine the biological, environment factors, lifestyles and social learning theory on personality through my own experiences. Even though they have a very similar appearance, their behaviors and temperaments are totally different. Every weekend, I will teach them mathematics. For example, once Nicole encountered some difficult questions, she lost her temper or even does not complete the rest of the questions. In contrast, Mandy was more patience while she got some problematic questions. She paid much more efforts to figure out how to finish the questions. Bouchard (1994) notes that in making one’s personality, is by the sound foundations in the emerging theory of nature and nurture, but a larger portion is still uncertain. Despite the fact that the heredity determines personality, especially Nicole and Mandy who have similar genes, it seems that they do not share the same personality traits. Nicole and Mandy’s illustration shows that genes are not the main factors for the formation of personality traits and how much personality traits are destined. During the lecture in psychology course, I learned that there are various factors affecting......

Dinner in Strange Woods

...SCENE 1: Dave and Nicole are sitting around a table looking over their analysis essays for their English 113 class. They are overly stressed about their papers because their evil English Professor Ryan Brown had failed everyone who were foolish enough to take his class. Dave and Nicole were stressing over which American Author to write a seven page paper on. NICOLE: Why in the world did you sign up for this class? The only reason I took this class is because there were no other English classes available. DAVE: Well...I thought he’d take it easy on me because he’s engaged to my sister. Apparently, he doesn't care. DAVE: Why do you think he's so hard to get with? Do you think it’s because he's colorblind? NICOLE: No that can't be it...maybe he's just mad because no one showed up for his poem club. DAVE: Yeah...we should've went to that. Anyways do you have any idea on who you are going to write about? NICOLE: I still have no idea. There has to be something that we could do that would at least earn us a few brownie points. DAVE: I know! Why don't we throw a dinner party for him to celebrate his engagement? We could have it at that quaint cottage in the woods. NICOLE: wha...what kind of stupid idea is that? It sounds like a stupid play [DAVE cuts NICOLE off by laughing followed by a glare and a harsh hush].

Marie Nicole Thompson Case

...Problem The problem in this case is that Marie did not acquire Jane’s inherited referent power, which is triggering conflict among colleagues resulting in negative side effects. ● The two senior secretaries developed and shared similar values, accepting Marie’s work ethic and job responsibilities was a struggle for them and is leading to strained relationships. ● Jane’s influence was so strong that after a few weeks they actually had an exorcism. Due to Jane being held to such high esteem, Marie’s stature and position are constantly under fire. ● The staff thinks Marie should stay in reading and writing all day instead of attending meetings because that was more in line with Jane’s role. Therefore, conflict surrounding how Marie is spending her time is occurring. ● When Marie wanted to correct an ethical mistake regarding her schooling that Chuck had dictated, because of Theresa’s personal perceptions she became very upset and saw it as burning a bridge. ● Maria unfairly complained to Chuck about Marie because there was a jurisdictional dispute between the two of them about missing a deadline. Solution The solution to the problem we have identified is to eliminate the negative impacts of conflict between Marie and colleagues by restructuring interdependence by clarifying existing relationships. ● By communicating openly about Marie’s position and expectations, a difference between Jane and Marie’s positions can be established and understood by the entire......

How Does Cormier Present the Character Nicole in Heroes?

...present the character Nicole in Heroes?- In this essay I will be talking about how the character, Nicole, is portrayed in Cormier’s novel; Heroes. This will include mentioning the events that Nicole has been through, how they have affected her as a person throughout her life in the novel and if they determine if she is a hero or not. Nicole is first mentioned in the novel by Francis whilst he is on his own in church, ‘I pray of course for Nicole Renard’. Francis is speaking to us as reader in first person, telling us without any background information on the 4th page of the novel the name of a girl who is the person he would ‘of course’ pray for. This shows that Nicole is of significance to the character and to the rest of the novel, we assume as his mentioning of her was so brief but exact that she will be expanded on more. ‘It will always be Nicole Renard’ as she is mentioned again it assures the reader that she will definitely be included more. The structure of the name drop raises interests and we become intrigued, Cormier is wanting us to make assumptions about her. The second paragraph starts with ‘I saw Nicole Renard for the first time in seventh grade’. It’s an instant impact to the reader similar to the effect we assume Nicole had on Francis. The suddenness of the statement shows there was an automatic spark for Francis as he still remembers the exact time they had their first encounter. ‘followed by the most beautiful girl I had ever seen’ Nicole is presented as......

Pacific Medical Supply

...Sales Management Summer 2015 Case Study 1 Pacific Medical Supply: Hiring, Motivating, and Retaining Good Salespeople Jim Shine had some big problems on his hands as the owner and sales manager of Pacific Medical Supply Company. But these are the types of problems owners of a successful small businesses like Jim like to have. Jim problems involved his most junior salesperson, Nicole Landis. Nicole’s impact on Pacific Medical Supply’s sales was huge, despite the fact that the company hired her right out of college. The specific problems Jim faced as a result of Nicole’s extraordinary sales efforts involved professional jealousy among his sales staff, the discovery of an out-of-whack sales commission structure, and a customer service department that was tired of being dumped on by the salesperson they nicknamed the “land shark.” The company’s sales commission structure is as follows: Pacific Medical Supply Company pays a commission on customer orders placed based on the tiered commission rates on the chart below. [pic] Example: Monthly sales of $120,000 would result in a monthly commission of $10,500.00 ($100,000 X .085 + $20,000 X .10). This commission level, if sustained, would equate to $126,000 in annual income. Note: If all the orders were new business, $1,200 per month, or $14,400 per year would be added to the salesperson’s commission.

Db1-Nicole Elkins

...Hello everyone! My name is Nicole Elkins, but I usually go by Nikki. I went to college for a semester after high school but started to invest my time in other things. I’m now pursuing my degree in Special Education and really looking forward to getting back on track. Currently, I am a nanny for 3 kids, ages 13,10 and 6. I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. I recently moved to North Carolina to become more spiritually invested (and to be closer to the beach). During my free time I love to travel and help others. Last summer our church took a construction team to El Salvador where my life was forever changed. Over the last five years I have been trying to decide what I wanted to do with my life and it wasn’t until I started faithfully attending church and devoting my life to God that I finally realized what direction he was leading me in. After reading the Liberty University mission statement I feel that their goals closely align with my personal educational goals. Being that I was recently baptized I understand this a crucial and fragile time in my life and that I need to surround myself with those who encourage Christian faith. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” {1 Peter 3:15}. By having a liberal arts program with a Christian focus students are able to become well-rounded in their knowledge and be prepared to complete any task from different angles. Not only can they communicate on an......

...……The advertisements have been described thus: "The first advertisement, without dialogue, showed Nicole in a spotted summer frock, slipping past Papa and driving away with the Clio for a rendezvous with her boyfriend. The second featured Nicole, even more chic in a black dress, and her new boyfriend taking Papa's Clio to a ball, now with Papa's consent. (Papa goes off on a romantic rendezvous, too). A third saw Nicole and Papa on a skiing holiday, as research demanded they be together for a change. In every advertisement, there is a small twist, leaving questions unanswered. In 1994, with the new generation Clio, Nicole grows up. Directed by Richard Loncraine and shot in Provence, the TVCs continue le savon populaire. Instead of the typical car advertising gimmicks of macho postures and voice-overs ranting about the new drivers side airbag, the 1994 blitz began with Nicole, now a sophisticated young woman, on a shopping trip”. Thus the series featured two dramatis personae, the person of “Papa” and the person of “Nicole”. The basic idea is that both have a lover in the neighbouring town. The question is always, who gets to go in that car; Papa to a rendezvous with a matronly French lady, and Nicole with her boyfriend. It is a simple concept, a comedy of manners, whose wit lies in the idea of mutual concealment. The scenes are all set in a southern French town with its iron balconies, terracotta roofs and stucco walls, and the French countryside. The journey is from......

Since this project is her first assignment, Nicole started by making appointments with each of the divisional managers to gather information for the budget and also to learn more about the company. MEETING WITH THE SALES DEPARTMENT Walking down the hallway towards the office of Jeff Barza, the sales manager, Nicole read the results for last quarter which ended on December 31, 2015. Henri Boulangerie sold 45,000 one-dozen packages of muffins for $5.50 each, 65,000 one-dozen packages of cookies for $4.75 each, and 85,000 one-dozen loaves of bread for $5.25 each. When Nicole got to Jeff’s office, he motioned her in to have a seat. “Is it time for our meeting already?” he asked. “Where does the day go?” “Who knows? It seems like one minute I’m having my morning muffin and the next I’m saying good-bye to everyone,” Nicole said with a sigh. “There’s never time to get everything done. And now I get to do the budget.” Jeff started to laugh. “Thanks,” she muttered. “I knew I could count on your support.” “I’m sorry. I just have to laugh at the amount of time you are going to put into something that isn’t really used anyway, except for setting bonuses, of course.” “Not really used? I don’t know how it’s been around here in the past, but this year, at least, the budget will prove to be a valuable tool.” Nicole waved away Jeff’s retort. “Anyway, one......

Lingvostylystic Means of Creating Psychological Effect in the Novel by Scott Fizgerald “Tender Is the Night”

...strength to his civilization, his identification with the curtailment of natural impulse through psychiatry and prewar American civilization. The relationship between Nicole and Dick is such that what happens to the one must happen to the other. Both Nicole and Dick turn by the novel¹s end to impulse and instinct, but while Nicole does this by gaining an independent self-consciousness, Dick achieves this only through drinking. Throughout the novel Nicole is identified with the childish and animalistic wildness of instinct. This is most obvious in the uninhibited expression of emotion which characterizes her episodes of madness. We see, for instance, her frenzied laughter as she rides the Ferris wheel and causes her car to crash. As the car finally comes to a halt, "She was laughing hilariously, unashamed, unafraid, unconcernedŠ.She laughed as after some mild escape of childhood" . And as a patient at the clinic, after having her affection for Dick rebuffed, we are told, "Nicole’s world had fallen to pieces, but it was only a flimsy and scarcely created world; beneath it her emotions and instincts fought on" [1, 155]. As the story progresses, though, the expression of these impulses become less openly dangerous and abnormal and more linked to her growing sense of self. One more restrained way in which Nicole is identified with impulse is her use of money. Money in the story is a sort of materialized passion, the tangible expression of an appetite to possess and control.......
