Life Stages Interviews and Reports
Everyone perspectives on lifestyle changes in all phases of adulthood have changed drastically over the years. Different choices, influences, and situations play a part in adult’s choices that they make throughout his or her young early, middle, and late adulthood years. Team A has conducted three interviews that focus on each stage of adulthood. The interview will cover some of the biological factors, cognitive factors, psychosocial factors, and cultural factors that influence the interviewees. All of the issues help to explain many of the lifestyle changes that adults make over the years.
Young Adulthood
The first interview conducted focused on the early stage of adulthood. A young woman age 25 by the name of Kelsey was asked a series of questions to help us gain some insight on her stage of development and allow her responses to be analyzed. I began with questions regarding her physical stage of development. I asked Kelsey how she feels about her physical state and what she does to take care of herself. Her response explained that she believes that she is in pretty good health although she does not have to do too much to stay that way. She reported that she eats fast- food a few times a week due to her busy schedule, but she does make time to exercise at least three times a week. She is a college student at the local college and she is also working part-time. I asked if there are any apparent differences between your previous physical state during her previous stage of adolescents and now. She named weight gain as her primary change. She explained that she used to be able to eat whatever she wanted without a change in her weight, but now she is noticing that she gains it easier and it is harder to get rid of.
The next series of questions related to her social and emotional stage of development. I asked her which…...

Interview

...Business source complete Great Eastern Life Assurance this week became the first Asian insurance company outside Australia or Japan to sell a subordinated bond. The Singaporean borrower raised S$400m ($310.5m) in a deal that bankers hope will encourage regulators across Asia to let insurers turn to the debt markets to shore up their capital positions. Singapore is rare among Asian countries in having explicit capital regulations for insurance companies that allow the use of various forms of debt, as well as equities, to function as capital. But no issuer had tested the regulations before, and the lead managers held long discussions with the Monetary Authority of Singapore while they were structuring the deal. One of the points under discussion was whether the coupons needed to be deferrable -- something that would strengthen the bond's function as capital, but would have made the deal a tougher sell to investors. "It was more investor friendly to make coupons non-deferrable and we had to debate that point a bit with the MAS," Tony Cheong, group chief financial officer at Great Eastern Life Assurance told EuroWeek Asia. "But this is a common structure for banks. You will likely see the capital requirements of banks and insurance companies move closer and closer together, so it made sense." The issuer and its bankers won that argument, allowing Great Eastern to sell a S$400m 15 year non-call 10 bond with non-deferrable coupons. The bond got around S$1.2bn of demand...

Observation of a Life Stage

...?". This personal observation relates to Erik Eriksons concept of Identity crisis, in adolescence. A concept that relates to Erik Eriksons, fifth stage of psychosocial development. The stage of psychosocial development in which identity crisis may occur is called, Identity versus Role Confusion. This life stage takes place between the ages of eleven and eighteen. During adolescence, we are faced with physical growth, sexual maturation, and combining our ideas of ourselves and what others think of us. According to Berger, (2012), "We form our self-image and face the task of resolving the crisis of our basic ego identity". (Pg.518). Acceptance of this crisis depends on the persons progress through previous stages, focusing on trust, autonomy, and initiative (Cherry,2012). According Shultz and Shultz (2007), Erikson stated: "people going through an identity crisis are said to be exhibiting confusion". They often seem to have no idea who or what they are, where they belong or where they want to go. They may withdraw from normal life, not taking action or acting as they usually would at school or work and around family and peers" (Pg.227) This was the case for myself, I was unaware of whom I was. I was changing my attitudes and clothing in order to form peer acceptance and create self image. These decisions showed my confusion about "who am I?". According to Cherry, (2012) "Erikson stated that to someone having an identity crisis, it is more......

Life Style Inventory Report

... Life Style Inventory Results Management 591 Leadership and Organizational Behavior Anne Hallcom September 16, 2012 The LSI, life styles inventory, measures twelve specific patterns of thinking that are broken down into three categories: constructive, passive/defensive, and aggressive/defensive. Constructive styles reflect self- thinking to receive your own satisfaction, develop relationships to work with people, and task completion. Passive/defensive styles reflect self- protecting thinking to ensure security needs with people. Aggressive/defensive styles reflect self-promoting thinking to maintain position through security needs by task-related activities. After taking the LSI survey my primary and secondary styles of thinking fall under aggressive/defensive thinking. My limiting style of thinking falls under passive/defensive thinking. My primary thinking style, power, measures your self-worth to a degree that we can control and dominate others. Power thinkers lack confidence in others and try to establish their feelings of self-importance. Power thinkers are characterized to be aggressive and to have a rigid way of thinking. Power thinkers have a high need for control, power, prestige, and status. Power thinkers dictate the actions of others and they are threatened by undermined authority. Consequently, the qualities I found to be true about me regarding power is that I have a lot of aggression, lack confidence in others, and I have a high need of control and...

Report from Interview

...Report from Interview Student’s Name Institution Report from Interview Work at an airline calls for undivided attention, focus and stamina. Top executives find themselves torn between balancing work and family. While work is important in ensuring employees meet their family needs, it has become increasing important for senior executives to try to strike a balance between the two (Masuda & Chinchilla, 2010). Ability to ensure both sides are well catered for requires careful examination of ones conduct and building a clear time frame. Success may be achieved at workplace through putting more efforts and time. This means less time and personal touch with family members, which may be harmful to the wellbeing of all parties. In the long run, it does more harm than good. Maintaining a balance between work and family is crucial as it will ensure support from family members as one pursues their goals at the working place. Undergoing a thorough self transformation to achieve a win-win situation will entail time adjustment, more efforts to complete task within given time frame so that time to see ones family is available and is not disrupted (Masuda & Chinchilla, 2010). Not only will the top executive ensure strict adherence to the schedule but will also need to ensure the entire labor force is moving in the same direction, since failure to do so will mean their family time will be consumed solving institutional problems.

...An Interview with a Doctor - Medicine, medical supplies, and medical treatment are multi-billion dollar industries crucial to the wellbeing of the public. Doctors and other members of the health-care industry do their best to provide excellent care for the nation’s sick and injured, while scientists and researchers work to develop new drugs and technologies to fight disease. We often view medical care as a basic human right; something that all persons, rich or poor, should have access to in times of need. But despite our notions of what healthcare should be, those who make a living in this industry, specifically owners of firms, must contend with the same economic questions facing businesses in any industry....

Interview

... plan for the future needs of the clinic. Lacey said the goal of her work, to provide the best patient care, has not changed when her positions changed from nurse to supervisor, but instead of being in direct contact with patient she is now focused on providing the structure and tools for other employees to do that work. When it comes to formal training, Lacey has attended several courses on leadership and management; this has provided her with tools on leading, coaching, and effectively disciplining employees. The bachelor’s degree in nursing program also provided training in management of staff that she recalls helping her in the supervisor role. Lacey says the move valuable “training” she has had would be the experiences she gained while being on a team and being the lead nurse. Lessons she learned while doing those things “can’t be taught” she said. She does not have any additional training outside of this, but says being a parent has also given her a lot of the training tools, like prioritizing and managing multiple tasks, that she applies not only to her job but everyday life. It was my overall impression that Lacey really enjoys her job and the role she is currently in. Going into the interview I was very curious to find out how her transition from nurse to manager went and have to admit I was surprised how smoothly it went internally for her, though I understand now it was because of all her prior experience that being the nurse lead gave her. I personally think......
