Jamie Turner Case Study Problem Statement Jamie Turner and Pat Cardullo of Modern Lighting Industries, Inc need to recognize and address their interpersonal issues that have created a disconnect between them and throughout the whole MLI workforce. Hypothesis 1. Jamie Turner and Pat Cardullo have very different assumptions and expectations for Turner’s new position and MLI as a company. This hinders their relationship and prevents effective communication. This may be contributed to a poor psychological contract, the contract was weakly established and has not been maintained throughout Turner’s time at MLI. Also, when Jamie was in the process of signing on, Cardullo implied and even made many commitments; since then he has …show more content…
To me these seem like positive beliefs that would help a company, the problem was Cardullo didn’t keep these commitments. Turner was promised the autonomy he had been seeking, but Cardullo constantly intruded on his work and in the end even took back control of pricing which was suppose to be part of Turners job. Many times Jamie tried to communicate with Cardullo, only to be turned away with an insufficient response. Another commitment Cardullo broke was when Jamie inquired about entering a certain market to sell generators. Cardullo was interested in the idea, but after talking with other executives he went back on his word and told Jamie it wasn’t going to happen. The more Cardullo undermined Jamie the more disconnect was created between them. In the end Turner felt like he was supplying the leadership at MLI but without understanding what Cardullo expected of him. 2. Personal style issues add to the problem between Turner and Cardullo. Cardullo is from the Boomer generation, this alone creates disconnect between the two. Jamie being from the late X early Y generation acts and makes decisions differently than Cardullo. Many Boomers see X’ers as “disconnected, cynical, disloyal, and unwilling to accept challenge and responsibility”, I believe that Cardullo has underlying feelings similar to these and in turn does not trust Turner’s insight or decision making. Like these generational differences, both men have separate identities, Cardullo has the

Introduction: Throughout the book of Into The Wild Chris McCandless is known to be a wacko reckless idiot, and is also known to be courageous and heroic.

Many passages from Into The Wild can support this outlook.

Joseph Mallard William Turner’s oil painting done on canvas, Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and the Dying: Typhoon Coming On (1840; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) is a beautiful painting with a lot of movement and colors, it is a landscape painting of the sea during sunset. This paining memorializes an incident 60 years earlier, in which the British Empire’s slave trade ship, the Zong, tossed overboard the sick and dying slaves.. Malnutrition and disease on boad the Zong claimed the life of 70 white men and 60 African slaves before the commander, Luke Collingwood ordered that 133 living slaves be cast overboard. Upon the Zong’s return to England, they fabricated a story justifying the murder of the slaves: it was necessary to kill them due to an insufficient water supply. However, this was proven false and when the owner claimed full value for the slaves, he were denied by the insurers. This example amongst many others of the ill treatment of slaves due to selfishness and greed inspired the formation of the Anti-Slave trade movement four years later.

Towards the end of the eighteenth century and through the middle of the nineteenth century, a climate change throughout Europe was occurring which resulted in the emergence of conservatism and romanticism. Hunt (2012, p. 670) implies that when the dictatorial control of Napoleon Bonaparte ended, taking with it the disillusion of rationalism which was proliferated during the Napoleon’s totalitarianism, a desire for a change for personal, political, and religious freedom ensued. Consequently, freedom was sought through imagination rather than rational thought.

development and implementation of positive growth outcomes for MLI, further compounded by the subsequent failure by both parties to open dialogue about emerging concerns. This scenario between Cardullo and Turner could be improved with conflict resolution meetings in place, to the benefit of MLI and its employees.
In this case, after Turner finished studying in different excellent schools, he started working in different companies. In the past two years, he left his first job in Wolf River because he thought it is not challenge enough for him, then he worked for Lambowland until it fell into a serious cash flow bind, which forced him to start searching for his third job. During that time, he met Cardullo, president of Modern Lighting Industries, Inc. (MLI), who invited him to join the company as vice president for marketing and sales. He had an extremely great first impression about Cardullo and soon accepted his invitation. However, Turner gradually found out that Cardullo started to become distant and critical, he intervened frequently in marketing decisions; he saw people as either competent or incompetent and had great contempt and distrust for those in the latter category; he thought Turner’s attempting to reconcile is meaningless and then declined all Turner’s invitations for lunch; he made poor pricing scheme regardless of Turner’s forceful objection, caused huge damage to the company, and still refused to talk with anyone. Turner felt extremely frustrating and he had an increasing sense of rudderlessness at MLI. He did not want to quit the job because he did not want others to regard him as a job hopper, also, he really likes Chicago and he bought a condo in this city which left him very little wiggle room financially, so he decided to take some immediate action in order to
Although Tom Jones by Henry Fielding is appropriately known as a comic novel written to no set of absolute rules, the work shows many characteristics similar to epics. In epic novels the main protagonist is normally known for following a set series of events called “the hero’s journey.” The hero’s journey is often a three part adventure consisting of a departure, an initiation, and a return, through which the protagonist learns much about their strengths and weaknesses having departed from their “world” to another. In the new “world” they face challenges, enemies, and temptations that usually lead to
