–Reflective essay– As part of my Business Innovation Development Project Unit, I had the opportunity to put myself into group with my friends or people I believed I could work well with. In the first stages of our group we all tried to get to know each other more through analysing personality and learning types’ test that we previously undertook. I realise we were going through the normal stages of the team formation in particular forming and norming (Tuckman, 1965). In my assignment group we had all Belbin team roles which helped us perform well throughout our project and also helped us to identify other team members’ behavioural strengths and weaknesses. During the initial stages of the group getting together I believed it was …show more content…
Unfortunately there was a second thing I did not like, which was that one of our team members decided to drop out of the course in the middle of our project which made us change some of our workload responsibilities. However looking back, I believe that was the right choice for her at that time which I cannot change. My assignment group was very fortunate as we didn’t face any conflicts within our group. However I am aware that there could have been many different types of conflicts such as; different personality issue, different point of views or some people just don’t get along which leads to dysfunctional conflict (Huczynski & Buchanan, 2007), this can of course affect the productivity of a team or individual. I now realised that we all focused on everyone’s feelings of how fairly they were treated (Adams’ Equity theory) within the team. It is necessary, I believe, to make everyone treated equally, respected and to feel part of the team because in my opinion that makes a strong relationship between the team members and it avoids conflicts. Overall if I reflect back on our group work I believe we worked very well as a team and my contribution to the group was significantly high because I had an aim in my mind which I focused on until the end. As I worked the extra mile for our project, it resulted that it gave us, as a team, a bit more time in preparation for our presentation and finalizing the app which was crucial at that time for us. This experience has allowed me
I believe that I have a good understanding of the law in general which is a good start for APS. On the other hand, I was struggling with the files at first. I then decide to always work, review, ask someone different for help with my file. This way, I see different ways to do my file and have a larger knowledge of the file work. I also always bring my previous file to work on my current file. Doing this, I don’t do the same mistakes twice and quickly improve. When I receive the correction of my file, I take time to read and understand my mistakes and ask questions if needed. I consider report writing one of the most important skills you can have as a police officer because you will use it a lot. Bad files can have big repercussions on a suspect
The political system in haiti's 1969 was terrible. It was just like when woman had no rights all over the world before that time. They did not have the right to do anything in life, they didn't have the right to vote, go to school, get jobs or anything. All we could do was be housewives. All we did was cook, clean, and have babies. Woman was always treated unfairly back then we, weren't even treated like we were humans. Woman was not allowed to do what they wanted, we had to do what we was born to do in the political system. Danticat's Couldn't grow up to do what she wanted to. Growing up not knowing that you don't have the right to do things men can do can change the way you look at the world a lot. Woman soon started to get tired of being
One important lesson that I learned after getting certified as a sniper is the importance of selecting and adjusting a quality trigger. When shooting it’s important to have an adjustable trigger that will allow the shooter to have a light and crisp shot. In the military a heavier two stage trigger is used, and this aids a soldier with better accuracy under pressure and when using winter gloves. It allows the soldier to feel a little extra creep or bump before the shot breaks. If these rifles are used in the civilian market, the trigger may need replacement to accommodate the bench rest or sports shooter.
Another religious value that was key to the success of Louie was forgiveness. After being tortured for two years as a prisoner of war Louie had terrible nightmares about the bird. He drank every day to try and forget. He couldn’t run in competitions anymore because his leg was damaged from falling when he was carrying coal in the Japanese camp. When he came back from being a prisoner everyone from Torrance was there to see Louie and cheer for him. It felt different than when they cheered for him when he ran. He didn’t feel like a hero because he did nothing but survive. When he first met his wife he thought that she would help him forget about the torture he went through but it never helped. Not even having a kid took away the bad memories. On chapter 17 page
Although I do not have extensive experience with young children during my B.S.W. studies, I developed the knowledge and skills needed to conduct through interview with clients. I learned how to do assessments on clients and evaluating them properly. I have conducted interventions on clients while recording documentation and reporting the information properly. I have gained the strengths to advocate services for clients. I have learned how to access and deliver the best approaches to further help clients receive services based upon their situations. I have mainly worked with adults with disabilities or addictions. At my internship during my senior year, I gained practical experience in hemodialysis setting by conducting interviews with clients,established
Alcoholism and the addiction to any drug destroy lives, families and financial security. Growing up with an alcoholic as a parent not only tore my family apart to the point of divorce in 2013; but also left me as a financial insecure college student and a supporter for my younger sister through the years to come. Faced with the sudden tasks of paying for myself and raising my sister, I struggled to through the semesters trying to pay rent and be at home. Academically, I was disappointed in myself and knew I needed to make a change. Through many appointments through the success center, I became proactive to take control of the difficult situation I was in. Though I am still in this situation today, I have learned to time-manage and prioritize
I showed up to every class period that we met and completed the tasks that were asked of me when discussed amongst the group. I would like to think of myself as generally a nice individual with a personality that is easy to get along with. In the beginning, when we first were put into groups, we established a set of simple rules to communicate with each other, which I felt was a great aide in the effectiveness of working with each other. When talking about myself, I was very respectful, open to listening to everyone’s ideas and making sure what was input to the project was relevant to what our topic was (Domestic Violence). One thing I learned from this experience was how to take on a leadership role, especially in dealing with certain challenges that came up. It gave me a better appreciation for group dynamics because I got to do something I am not typically used to. It forced me to come out of my comfort zone a bit, an essential tool in working with the
I had the privilege of meeting IU Health Representatives: Jason, Karen, and Deb, at the recruiting luncheon, hosted at Indiana Wesleyan University this past Tuesday. It was an excellent opportunity to meet IU Health staff and discuss employment opportunities. I am applying to be a Registered Nurse working on the Medical Surgical Unit at IU Health Methodist Hospital because I value people and enjoy bringing communities closer together. I am passionate about providing quality patient care. The IU Health Mission emphasizes innovation and excellence and both are essential aspects of providing quality healthcare.
Whilst on clinical placement, a male resident with dementia and I were sitting in his room within the nursing home for which he resided for the past two years. The resident was becoming anxious about his family, stating that they lived far away and he missed them. He showed me a card from one of his daughters she had sent for his birthday. As I was reading what she had written I became overwhelmed with empathetic emotion and wanted to cry due to her emotive words.
I was a 13 years old when I joined Shamrock in 2007, and it was the first time I was living away from my family. It was pretty hard to get used to everything at first, but things started to get only better and better.
To describe an event or experience in my life and how it influenced my decision to further my education was a culmination of several situations that had happened in the last two years. It started with my place of employment. I had gone up as high that I could in the company and without any further education I no longer had the ability to make more money or to do anything else in the corporation. I began to get frustrated with the situation and with myself. I knew I had more to offer and the desired to do so. As the days passed I had a conversation I had with my daughter. She had questioned the importance of her schooling. I was stressing to her the importance of a good education and how that education will change her life for the better. I explained how an education can give
My strategical approaches includes early identifying the cause , Referrals made appropriately, Interventions that are timely , Significance of treatments, Patient education and measuring the outcomes.The biggest barrier I have come across is nurses have no available help how to respond on a patients death and dying. It is not common to include courses on death and dying in nursing curriculums (Jonas, Simpson, Pilkington, MacDonald & McMahon 2013, 2). Patient death and dying may impact nurses adversely, producing feelings such as depression and guilt (Martins, Chaves & Campos 2014, 172; Gerow, Conejo, Alonzo, Davis, Rodgers & Domian 2010, 123; Shorter & Stayt 2010, 160). Some nurses reported their unpreparedness when dealing with patient death and dying, attributing this to having received insufficient education (Alvaro 2009, 29).
In the beginning of the year I was not confident in my writing abilities. I did not know how to format different types of essays, nor did I know the meticulous research that goes into each and every paper. When we started off with narrative writings I felt fairly comfortable, but little did I know that I was a grammatical nightmare. My most common mistake was forgetting about commas before coordinating conjunctions. I would also often times become wordy or improper whenever I wasn't sure how to get an idea across. Whenever the year started I was clueless on how to format any dialogue at all, but as the year progressed these dialogue mishaps dwindled down until in my final papers they were much improved. Finally, my greatest personal improvement
The different activities I have participated in over the past 3 semesters have been incredibly rewarding! The majority of the activities I have participate in over the past 3 years have been on the USF campus, the organizations that I have completed these hours with were primarily with the offices of the Global Citizens Project (GCP) and the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement’s Lead Fellows Board (CLCE), but also some hours were completed with the USF chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and with the GloBULL Ambassadors. The various activities performed spanned a wide range of different things including planning events that help to promote leadership across USF with the CLCE, tabling at events and presenting presentations with the Global Citizens Project, and
