#1 Honesty and Integrity
Great leaders create an organizational culture built on these
two core values and hold all employees accountable to
them. Without honesty and integrity as fundamental
cornerstones of an organization, they will rarely succeed
long term. And creating such a culture starts at the top of
the organization. Everyone watches the leader and takes
their cues as to what is acceptable behavior.
Effective leaders must also be trustworthy. They are
recognized for always telling the truth and for practicing the
highest standards of ethical conduct. Subordinates believe
them and do not feel that their leader has hidden agendas.
Good leaders readily admit their mistakes. Although difficult
to do, this shows they are honest and can be trusted.
Great leaders show they have the best interests of the
company in mind rather than their own personal gain, by
making good on their commitments. They hold themselves
accountable for their actions and decisions, and encourage
their employees to do likewise.
Transparency is also important, even when there is bad
news to share. Employees know when things are not going
well. Trying to put a positive spin without acknowledging
the organization’s difficulties will cost the leader his or her
credibility. Sharing both the bad and the good creates
deeper trust and respect.
#2 Outstanding Self Awareness
A leader must understand their own strengths and
weaknesses. All of us have faults and instinctive behaviors
that produce unintended results and/or consequences. It is
critical for a leader to really know themselves, admit their
shortcomings and ask for their help in addressing them.
This demonstrates humility and humanizes the leader. No
one is perfect and if a leader acts like they are, they will
lose credibility and trust. In the worst case they will be seen
as arrogant and intimidating.

...How to calculate an ANOVA table Calculations by Hand We look at the following example: Let us say we measure the height of some plants under the effect of 3 different fertilizers. Treatment X Y Z Overall mean STEP 0: The model: Yij = µ + Ai + i ij Measures Mean 1 2 2 ... 5 6 5 ... 2 1 ... // . . . ˆ Ai ... ... ... (0.1) (0.2) n i Ai = 0 Interpretation: An observation yij is given by: the average height of the plants (µ), plus the effect of the fertilizer (Ai ). and an ”error” term ( ij ), i.e. every seed is different and therefore any plant will be different. All these values (µ, Ai , ij ) are UNKNOWN! Our GOAL is to test if the hypothesis A1 = A2 = A3 = 0 is plausible1 . Remark 1 If we have a control group (for example treatment ”X” is ”without any fertilizer”, then we assume that the values of X are in some way the best approximation for µ, therefore we can choose A1 = 0 is spite of condition (0.2). STEP 1: complete the first table. For the treatment means it is enough to calculate the mean of the values M eanX M eanY M eanZ 1 = = = 1+2+2 = 1.667 3 5+6+5 = 5.333 3 1+2 = 1.5 2 We DO NOT find ”the correct value” for the Ai We WILL NOT find which factor (treatment) has an effect, we just look if in general treatments has effect on the results. 1 The (estimated) overall mean (ˆ, which is an estimation of the exact, unµ known overall mean µ) is calculated as follows2 : µ = ˆ 1+2+2+5+6+5+2+1 =3 8 ˆ The estimated effects Ai are the difference between the...

...ASSIGNMENT 1 –ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY The Shawshank Redemption In 1946, a banker named Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is convicted of a double murder, even though he stubbornly proclaims his innocence. He's sentenced to a life term at the Shawshank State Prison in Maine, where another lifer, Ellis "Red" Redding (Morgan Freeman), picks him as the new recruit most likely to crack under the pressure. The ugly realities of prison life are quickly introduced to Andy: a corrupt warden (Bob Gunton), sadistic guards led by Capt. Byron Hadley (Clancy Brown), and inmates who are little better than animals, willing to use rape or beatings to insure their dominance. But Andy does not crack: he has the hope of the truly innocent, which (together with his smarts) allow him to prevail behind bars. He uses his banking skills to win favor with the warden and the guards, doing the books for Norton's illegal business schemes and keeping an eye on the investments of most of the prison staff. In exchange, he is able to improve the prison library and bring some dignity and respect back to many of the inmates, including Red. Based on a story by Stephen King, The Shawshank Redemption was the directorial debut of screenwriter Frank Darabont. After a long discussion, we have agreed that Andy’s act in helping Warden Norton to launder his money is ethical because he has to follow the orders given in order to keep himself from being hurt and to survive in the prison.

...MOHAMMED ALAIFAN MS.PIWARSH ENGLISH 110 February 10, 2014 Communities and contact zone The art of the contact zone is a book written by Mary Pratt. Mary Pratt is a Spanish and Portuguese languages professor. It actually contains a deep literal and psychological meaning in it and is intended to be used especially in a classroom set up to teach about our diverse nature; cultural behavior, colonialism, slavery and power plays. Its effects are wide and large as it has been able to affect various communities by its writing, art work and literacy. The contact zones, according to the book are quite important areas as they are areas where a community is able to see the world in a foreign community perceptive. Contact zones as defined in the book, are areas where various communities meet and have an uneven exchange in culture and beliefs. Mary Pratt tries to explain how our cultural knowledge is misguided due to the fact that we missed a crucial part of our heritage and the heritage of other communities too. This is mainly due to the fact that most of it is hidden from us by those who are supposed to preserve and pass it to us. Accepting us involves appreciating our past that is our history and upholding it by making sure that the future generations receive the information as it is. Those charged with the preservation of our culture choose the parts of history to pass down and deliberately omit others as a means of defending the community from the subsequent humiliation and shame that...

...Resolving legal disputes in international transactions has some issues. There are three choices a company has when looking into a legal dispute. First choice is to take legal actions, which can hurt the future business relationships between a country and the business. This option is perfectly legal by the terms of the contract set up before the two decided to do business. The second choice is to not take any legal action, which hurts the company financially and also defeats the purpose of the contract if there is no punishment for the breach of contract. The third choice is to find the alternative for both parties to benefit. It will save the party breaching the contract from going to court and the other party to regain the financial losses it would have had if it decided not to take any actions. This is the preferable action to take because the relationship is not completely hurt with a chance of future business. Something to think about, taking legal actions will hurt the business partner financially and will hurt the partnership for future business. Sublicensing has some factors to consider, like the time and cost involved, and also ensuring the quality standards. The foreign authorities can also play a role in determining if sublicensing is the best options for the country because the generic product would be cheaper and more affordable for the public. When laws conflict locally and abroad, the contract should prevail because that is the agreement the partnership is...

...CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE INTRODUCTION Rationale of the Study The ship is a unique environment that it is not only a place of work but at the same time a home to seafarers working on board. Working on ships entails seafarers’ absence for a long period away from home. This situation and other conditions on board such as the weather and the crewing arrangement may compound the situation of seafarers aboard ship. This results into various psychological experiences that could lead to psychosocial problems such as stress, alcohol, tobacco and drugs, HIV/Aids, and violence, consequently, affecting their health, well-being and effectiveness in work. Each of these factors is correlated with each other that one problem may either cause another or be the result or effect of another problem. This greatly affects to the cadets/cadetes in the maritime world who are new to this profession Towards this end, the selected students of the NSA 16th batch 4th year cadets conducted this exploratory study to generate information on the sources of stress of RCPO cadets on board ships and the coping mechanisms employed to minimize the impact of stress. This information will then be used to highlight the good practices/strategies in managing stress on board with the end view of boosting the quality of RCPO cadets in the international labour market. Specifically, the study pursued the following objectives: 1. Determine the sources of stress of RCPO cadets; 2...
