Memo On Management Behavior

868 words, 4 pages

Intro Sample...

Workers want to see significant improvements in their quality of work life. A classic example was when I was working for a payroll company serving as supervisory manager. Most of the managerial duties were geared towards planning, organising, coordinating, leading and controlling. There is always a direct correlation between your duties and behaviour because everything you do is depicted and acted upon by a subordinate.

Additionally, equal employment opportunities are the types of management actions that are in line with employment laws, whilst unequal treatment and discrimination runs contrary to employment laws. The broader goal of equal employment opportunity is to provide for all, regardless of race, age, gender, religion, national origin, or disability, an equal opportunity to compete for jobs for which they are qualified. From a managerial perspective, it is important to understand the rights as well as obligations of employers, job candidates and employees.Indeed, understanding these laws and their management implications is critical for all managers. As you will see, ignorance in this area can turn out to be very expensive. Discrimination is only when candidates are excluded on a prohibited basis, one that is not related to the job (eg.age, race, gender), that unlawful and unfair discrimination exist. Discrimination in any form or shape contravenes employment laws both at the state and federal levels, and employers must contract prospective employees based on their skills, knowledge and expertise but not on age, race, gender or national origin.

Furthermore, diverse work environment throws more light on a manager’s behaviour. Diversity refers to human qualities that are different from our own and those of groups to which we belong; but that are manifested in other individuals and groups. Dimension of diversity include but not limited to age,ethnicity,gender,ph View More »

    Iraq & Vietnam

    3335 words, 14 pages

    Events in Iraq have prompted some people on the left to make comparisons to the American experience in the Vietnam War. These people argue that the United States has put itself into an in-extractable “quagmire” from which there is no feasible withdrawal. This type of reasoning by historical comparison is not wise because no two historical events are completely alike. In the case of Iraq and Vietnam, extreme caution should be exercised in comparing two wars so far apart in historical circumstances, geography, and time. It becomes pretty obvious that the differences between the two conflicts

Two theories can be reviewed when examining motivation. The first is expectancy theory. Expectancy theory holds that people are motivated to behave in ways that produce desired combinations of expected outcomes (Kreitner & Kinicki, 2004). Vroom’s expectancy theory is a mathematical model that looks at motivation. Employee motivation is influenced by expectation. If I get a raise at
