Pengertian Kepuasan kerja
Kepuasan kerja merupakan hal yang bersifat individual. Setiap individu mempunyai tingkat kepuasan yang berbeda-beda, seperti yang didefinisikan oleh Kreitner & Kinicki (2005), bahwa kepuasan kerja sebagai efektivitas atau respons emosional terhadap berbagai aspek pekerjaan. Definisi ini mengandung pengertian bahwa kepuasan kerja bukanlah suatu konsep tunggal, sebaliknya seseorang dapat relatif puas dengan suatu aspek dari pekerjaannya dan tidak puas dengan salah satu atau beberapa aspek lainnya. Blum (As’ad, 2000) mengatakan bahwa kepuasan kerja merupakan suatu sikap umum yang merupakan hasil dari beberapa sikap khusus terhadap faktor-faktor pekerjaan, karakteristik individual, serta hubungan kelompok di luar pekerjaan itu sendiri. Handoko (2001) mengatakan bahwa kepuasan kerja sebagai respon emosional menunjukkan perasaan yang menyenangkan berkaitan dengan pandangan karyawan terhadap pekerjaannya.
Tiffin mengemukakan bahwa kepuasan kerja berhubungan dengan sikap dari karyawan terhadap pekerjaan itu sendiri, situasi kerja, kerjasama antara pimpinan dan sesama pimpinan dan sesama karyawan. Locke dan Luthans berpendapat bahwa kepuasan kerja adalah perasaan pekerja atau karyawan yang berhubungan dengan pekerjaannya, yaitu merasa senang atau tidak senang, sebagai hasil penilaian individu yang bersangkutan terhadap pekerjaannya.
Herzberg di dalam teorinya Two Factors Theory mengatakan bahwa kepuasan kerja dan ketidakpuasan kerja merupakan dua hal yang berbeda serta kepuasan dan ketidakpuasan terhadap pekerjaan itu tidak merupakan suatu variabel yang kontinyu. Berdasarkan penelitian yang ia lakukan, Herzberg membagi situasi yang mempengaruhi sikap seseorang terhadap pekerjaannya menjadi dua kelompok yaitu kelompok satisfiers dan kelompok dissatisfiers. Kelompok satisfiers atau motivator adalah faktor-faktor atau situasi yang dibuktikannya…...

...are the qualities of good leaders? What makes them successful? Think of some of the greatest leaders of all time. What made them stand out from others? We may think of adjectives such as “heroic,” “charismatic,” and “strategic.” These are all leadership qualities, but what really makes for a strong and successful leader? Successful leaders are able to influence others. They use their innate qualities to inspire a workforce, a team, or a nation to achieve goals. Leaders can see beyond themselves and beyond the task at hand to look at achieving long-term goals by utilizing their strengths combined with the strengths of others. Effective leaders are able to manage relationships with others and create positive outcomes. Winston Churchill often comes to mind as one of the greatest leaders in history. He was a talented orator and politician, but what made Churchill a phenomenal leader was his ability to mobilize and strengthen the will of his people through his words and policies. Although his strategic actions were often criticized at the time for being impulsive, Churchill allowed his belief in democracy and his intolerance for fascism to dictate his wartime policies. It was not only his passion for the policies but his ability to carry out his plans that made him a successful leader.

...without evaluating the alternative emerging wireless technology, which had been gaining ground in other countries. Peeters’ aggressive campaign against government regulation also had unintended consequences. Rather than achieving less regulation, criticizing government and its telecommunications regulator made Profitel look even more arrogant in the eyes of both customers and government leaders. Profitel’s board was troubled by the company’s lackluster share price, which had declined 20 percent since Peeters was hired. Some board members also worried that the company had bet on the wrong wireless technology and that subscription levels would stall far below the number necessary to achieve the profits stated in Peeters’ strategic plan. This concern came closer to reality when a foreign-owned competitor won a $1 billion government contract to improve broadband services in regional areas of the country. Profitel’s proposal for that regional broadband upgrade specified high prices and limited corporate investment, but Peeters was confident Profitel would be awarded the contract because of its market dominance and existing infrastructure with the new wireless network. When the government decided otherwise, Profitel’s board fired Peeters, along with two executives he had hired from the European company where he previously worked. Now, the board had to figure out what went wrong and how to avoid this problem in the future....

...THE LEADER A loss leader or leader[1] is a product sold at a low price (at cost or below cost)[2] to stimulate other, profitable sales. It is a kind of sales promotion, in other words marketing concentrating on a pricing strategy. The price can even be so low that the product is sold at a loss. A loss leader is often a popular article. Sometimes leader is now used as a related term and means any popular article, in other words one sold at a normal price.[3] [pic]Sales of other items in the same visit One use of a loss leader is to draw customers into a store where they are likely to buy other goods. The vendor expects that the typical customer will purchase other items at the same time as the loss leader and that the profit made on these items will be such that an overall profit is generated for the vendor. Loss Lead describes the concept that an item offered for sale at a reduced price and is intended to lead to the subsequent sale of other items, the sales of which will be made in greater numbers, or greater profits, or both. It is offered at a price below its minimum profit margin-- not necessarily below cost. The firm tries to maintain a current analysis of its accounts for both the loss lead and the associated items, so it can monitor how well the scheme is doing, as quickly as possible, thereby never suffering an overall net loss. An example is a supermarket selling sugar or milk at less than cost to draw customers to that particular supermarket. Marketing......

Proposal for Market Leader - Red Bull

...RED BULL India Assessing market leader challenges RED BULL India Assessing market leader challenges 1. Background In 1984 Red Bull GmBH was co-founded by Dietrich Mateschitz, an Austrian entrepreneur and former marketing director for Blendax, a toothpaste company. After visiting Thailand in 1982 Mateschitz discovered that a drink called Krating Daeng helped cure his jet lag. After some research, he contacted the owner ChaleoYoovidhya, a self-made Thai billionaire who introduced Krating Daeng to the world in 1976 to strike a business deal to sell the drink in Europe. Krating Daeng, which means “Red Bull” in English, was inspired by the tonic drink Lipovitan of Japan, with prime ingredient as Taurine, and was popular among Thai truck drivers and labourers. After agreeing to the terms, Red Bull GmbH was founded by each partner investing $500,000 of savings and taking a stake in the new company. Chaleo and Dietrich each held a 49% share of the new company and gave the remaining 2% to Chaleo's son Chalerm, but it was agreed that Mateschitz would run the company. The product was initially launched in 1987 in Austria as a carbonated version. Today, Red Bull is the most popular energy drink in the world in terms of market share selling over 5.2 Billion cans worldwide in 2012. 2.

...Are Leaders Born or Made? Professional Development-MBA 525 St. Leo University Bruce Hammond February 10, 2013 Abstract This paper will discuss whether the greatest leaders are made or born. While many people are born with natural, instinctive leadership qualities and traits; many people can become great leaders with the training, earned respect and situations or environment. This paper will also discuss what makes an effective leader. Paper Section Whether great leaders are born or are they made is a greatly debated subject. Some people are certainly born with leadership instinct(s) that may never be fully realized and developed. Others may have traits that may not be traditionally thought of as natural born leader traits but they possess other skills and the desire to lead that can turn them into an effective leader. "Leaders are developed. Leadership is nothing more than a collection of skills, that when employed, produces results." (Garic, 2006) In today's ever-changing job market and economy, many leaders and many types of effective leaders will be needed. Leadership development is the way to mold various personal traits: personality, talent, honesty, ability, sincerity, skill, confidence, integrity, into a good leader. As Pace states: "There are no set rules for what makes a good leader, but most successful leaders can draw on several qualities to help them lead." (Pace, 2006) Leaders draw on personal experience, as well as, training,......

Presentation Self Evaluation “Presentation”, which means presenting visually yourself or presenting a detailed analysis of some one’s life history in your own words in an acceptable manner by the audience. I presented the life history of an innovative leader who has revolutionised the entire electronic world and he is none other than Steve Jobs, who is well known as former CEO of Apple Company. I had a great opportunity to look at my presentation which enhances my knowledge how to be a good speaker and eventually to be a good leader. It is critical for a leader to have excellent communication skills to convey what he/she is thinking about visions or goals to his/her followers. When I watched my presentation video, I observed many flaws I had made and those are like turbulence in voice and broken sentences and it doesn’t mean that I am a bad speaker. I felt my speech was a good one but not good enough as an effective speaker. Considering the flaws I made, there is an opportunity for me to improve myself and not to commit the same mistakes again in the future. Unnecessary pauses, in correct gestures are also included in the flaws I had committed. Throughout the speech, I have noticed that my voice was clear and my pronunciation was good which was understandable most of the time. It is a great quality to have for a effective leader because; he/she need to communicate effectively and in an......

...and place. Communication includes writing and talking, as well as nonverbal communication (such as facial expressions, body language, or gestures), visual communication (the use of images or pictures, such as painting, photography, video or film) and electronic communication (telephone calls, electronic mail, cable television, or satellite broadcasts). Communication is a vital part of personal life and is also important in business, education, and any other situations where people encounter each other (Encarta, 1998). The purpose of this study was to discover whether or not there was a communication gap between the supervisors and the customer service representatives and/or unit leaders within organization, XYZ. The data was collected from the customer service representatives and/or unit leaders through the use of a multiple choice single answer survey. The survey was distributed via face-to-face (drop-off-survey). Eighty seven percent of the surveys were returned to the researcher. Although once rumored that there was a lack of communication within the organization, the result of the research was quite the opposite. Majority of the participants straddled the fence when asked about the overall satisfaction of communication within the organization. They thought that their supervisor's communicated well. And like other organizations they usually received most of their information through the grapevine. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not......

...technologies, competition, new ideas, profitability expectations, new leadership, and employee turnover. Organizations expect leaders to be a catalyst for change, therefore, the leader cannot afford to stick his or her head in the sand whenever change is occurring and hope the situation will quietly pass them by. Learning to manage high-velocity change is one of the most important leadership skills for a person to master for themselves, their employees, and the organization. What Leaders Need To Know About Managing Change Many of the changes that occurred in the last 18 months were unpredictable, or at least unpredicted, like the crash of the housing market, the collapse of numerous home mortgage and lending institutions, the near meltdown of the big-three U. S. automakers, and the millions of unemployed workers. The implication of the unpredictable nature of change for organizations is clear: although in many cases they may not be able to anticipate change, they can always be fast adapters (Lawler, et al., 2006). In uncertain and rapidly changing environments, organizations are challenged to accomplish two often-conflicting objectives: performing well against a current set of environmental demands and changing themselves to face future business environments (Lawler, et al., 2006). To meet these objectives, the organization must be able to count on the leaders at all levels to understand and adapt to these ever-changing environments. Simply stated, the challenge......

Red Bull: the Global Market Leader in Energy Drinks Is Considering Further Market Expansion

...Case Study 11.1 Red Bull: The global market leader in energy drinks is considering further market expansion November 16th, 2015 Executive Summary Red Bull, an original in the energy drink market, was founded in 1984 by marketing guru Dietrich Mateschitz and formula developer Chaleo Yoovidhya. The product is often used for boosting energy, increasing focus, and as a mixer for alcoholic drinks. Red Bull is well recognised for its extreme marketing strategies. For example, Red Bull has a “Mobile Energy Team,” which is largely made up of university students. The Mobile Energy Team regularly travels from University to University to promote Red Bull and provide samples of the product. A second example of Red Bull’s marketing strategy is their support for extreme sporting events, for example; Nascar driving. However, with the increase of new entrants in the functional drink market, Red Bull’s market share has decreased. This decrease leads straight into the problem statement; What strategy(ies) can Red Bull, the global market leader, use to further expand into current and emerging markets within the next three years in order to increase market share and sales? Several symptoms from the case where used to create an Industry Competitive analysis, a Fishbone analysis, and a SWOT analysis. Ultimately, after evaluating the Industry Competitive analysis, the Fishbone analysis, and the SWOT analysis, three alternatives were chosen to be further explored. These three......

...Toward a Conceptual Model of Global Leadership Jose Mathews* In the globalized world, global organizations have to contend with global leaders, and no easy parallel can be found between domestic and global leaderships. Researchers have approached the construct of global leadership from different perspectives of cognitive complexity, competency, behavioral, human capital, personality process and global mindset. In relation to these perspectives and the contextual elements of global business environment, a model of global leadership is derived. The key content variables of global leadership are explained in the realms of cognitive complexity, emotional resilience, cultural intelligence, motivational processes and related facets which interact with the global business environment. Introduction In organizational behavior, leadership appears to be the most researched, debated and discussed topic, and researchers have analyzed what leaders are like, what they do, how they are effective, what are the conditions/situations that make them effective, how do they bring about changes among the followers, the styles of their interactions with the followers and how they go about achieving their individual, group and organizational goals (George, 2000). The traditional focus of leadership is the organization that operates within a limited boundary. However, the changed context of globalization and the emergence of multinational and transnational corporations......
