The organization I will focus my assessment on is Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU). SNHU is a private, nonprofit, accredited institution with more than 70,000 online students, where I work as a specialized Military Academic Advisor. Southern New Hampshire University, founded in 1932 as the New Hampshire School of Accounting and Secretarial Science, has evolved into one of the fastest growing and most dynamic private, nonprofit universities in the nation (About us, 2017). There are many departments and programs at SNHU, but I will focus on my position as a fully online Military Academic Advisor. The online programs fall under the College of Continuing and Online Education (COCE). I began training in October 2016, and have retained a lot of the latest information and built on that with continued training and mentorship. Our mission says “We exist to make high-quality education accessible and affordable for all. Through our innovative culture and unwavering commitment to student success, we empower students to transform their lives and the lives of those around them” (About us, 2017).
Nucor has been facing many industry challenges including the overall development of the industry. They are competing with foreign firms on cost and efficiency.

Cynthia Cooper was contemplating over this whole debacle with what was the right decision to make with her discovering “almost four billion dollars in questionable accounting entries”. (Mead) While contemplating something crossed her mind on deciding if she should speak up and become known as a whistleblower, is that her findings could cost WorldCom’s credibility, about seventy thousand employees would lose their jobs, and also pension funds that were loaded with WorldCom stock. Her job as an internal auditor she had a responsibility to WorldCom’s Stockholders and also her own conscious to do something like as the fraud that was uncovered was so
Yes, the “About MTC” pages of Management and Training Corporation (MTC) do reflect its mission statement; it reads,
Candidate Raies delivered a complete order but attempted to use large complex words to add emphasis to the order. These larger words caused him to slip up and miss some critical details of the statements he was trying to convey. This also led to him not briefing an initial plan and wasting time once he climbed onto the obstacle to develop one. While he developed his plan on the obstacle, his team sat idle and failed to maintain progress toward the objective. During execution, he utilized mission type orders to accomplish his goal, but froze when one of his subordinates was given a penalty. After this failure, it took Candidate Raies almost two minutes to develop a new plan. This affected his overall confidence for the rest of the exercise
Mr. Toster has not seen in the CCSS OUTREACH lunch program. Mr. Toaster was having challenges finding an apartment due to his criminal record. He is being exited from the PATH/OUTREACH program because he left during the operating year. Hopefully, Case management can find his file to integrate the new exit forms the PATH/ OUTREACH program
A dependence grows between employee and leader in which the employee has grown accustomed to the leader giving orders and directions, and makes every effort to follow such guidance to the letter. This dependence does not bode well in situations of high stress and shortened reaction times. As General Honoré stated, the first part of the leader 's job is to "set people on the right path" (“A Military General’s Leadership Lessons,” 2009). This happens when the leader gives the initial order. In this case, it was to evacuate the people out of harms way. The plan was then laid out for the authorities to execute.
1. If I were Skip Grenoble, which alternative would you advise Ms. Shannon to implement? What criteria would you use to arrive at your decision?
Furthermore, the Sheriff used an autocratic style of leadership during the initiation of the task to be performed by giving direct orders towards his Deputies. However, he then switched his approach to Democratic leadership style when all three Deputies questioned their tasking. The Sheriff has allowed his Deputies to vote regarding as to what type of action to take. In my opinion, during this type of critical situation, the Sheriff should have stay firmed on his decision because any delay on response is critical and possible lives could be lost. Further, he should have maintained better control of the situation by dictating and controlling all the decision with little feedbacks from the team. Moreover, although the Sheriff was overwhelmed
The Masters in Human Resources from CSU Global is an exceptional fit for my ambitions because of the overall academic excellence, emphasis on management, flexibility, and value. The knowledge gained from this degree will allow me to continue to increase the value of my contribution to my professional organizations, and will also be the next step toward my long-held personal goals of advancing my education. I plan to capitalize and enhance my current strengths and knowledge I have gained through work experience as they relate to my interests and professional advancement.
As a group we discussed and brainstormed what purpose of the CPSJ, the values which it was built on, and the core responsibilities it will have.
“Ah, speak, and I shall listen with great intent.” Neither of these powerful men’s minds were working properly, this increased the risk of making a faulty decision.

One of the main goals of Corporate Service Corps program is to use resources and technology to solve the problems of the world, which to me takes center stage. The experience and exposure to different cultures and communities around the world can go a large extent in building ones understanding and empathy towards issues that plague many countries. I believe all these combined together makes me want to be a part of the program. One’s ability and mettle can be tested only when given situations and a time frame that is challenging, which this program provides you with. This being my early years in a huge and ever expanding industry the program will help me strength my technical knowledge and along with it give me taste of leadership and the world
I have always taken what I have been given in most aspects of my life. In terms of school and implement I figured if the rules and regulations are set then there is good reasoning behind it all. Typically looking at how a change might affect employees and professors, if had a problem with something I just did my best to work within constraints. There has been times where I felt like I did not have enough time to finish an assignment or where I felt there was too much work for one class but never actually looked at it as being something that could change. After taking this class I now see that the reason people take a stance is to make change that is fair for both employee/student and employer/professor. Being given the chance to have a say in our work load as students seemed being a golden ticket. This of course was going in blind without any background information about what a union was and how a collective bargaining team worked for the greater good of the entire union.
