...Understand own ability to fulfil key responsibilities of the leadership role
Leadership is the ability to pinpoint values or objectives which can be reached through encouragement and a cohesive effort through the gradual assistance to the members of the team. The objective can be reached through persistence and insistence in such a way that members are not irritated or discouraged. In a particular company the commercial Department has four branches the Sales team, Business Sales, Customer Experience and Marketing Teams. We will evaluate leadership roles incorporating different Leadership Styles and how they impact the Customer Experience Team and the Sales Team.
The Customer Experience team evaluates the importance of understanding the client, empathising and providing solutions for their queries in a convenient time frame. The clients’ degree of satisfaction dictates the choice of decisions. The democratic approach shows and indicates that once the team members feel important because they are involved they do willingly provide a better service and once they come across some problem or some difficulty they are more prone to discuss it with their supervisor and in so doing they achieve client satisfaction in a quicker manner (Kurt Lewin, 1939). However when there is the autocratic approach which means the Leader has technically his own way, the other team members feel uneasy to approach him and because of this attitude the clients may suffer with the result that they...
...management. Even during the days of batter trading to ensure that what one received was equal in value to what one gave was through effective information management. Information management (IM) has been defined as the means by which an organisation efficiently collects, organizes, uses, controls disseminates and disposes of its information (O’Brien, 2003). The more sophisticated and seamless the organization’s information management the more effective it is, this also in turn could result in an increase in its competitive advantage. Organizational effectiveness has been described as its ability to perform functions with optimal levels of input and output (Gish).1 In essence if the organization inputs little and translates that into affordable products or services that are in high demand, its IM is highly effective. This assignment will assess how IM can be used to increase the chances of the outcome just highlighted. It will illustrate how the use of appropriate information systems (IS)2 at various levels within an organization can be used to achieve effectiveness thereby increasing the competitive advantage. It will also look at the pitfalls of IS implementation and poor IM and how these can have an adverse effect on profits and ability to generate those profits.
As stated earlier IM has been a significant tool in trading and commerce since the beginning of time. However what sets an organization apart is its ability to change data into...

...o you think romantic relationships would distract two employees from performing their jobs? Why or Why not?
As we name the two individuals as an “employees” so it is fair to point that work hours only belong to the company and not personal life. It is too unprofessional and unethical to devote paid company time to personal relationships.
Office relationships do distract the couples from their duties. The meetings throughout the office and breaks spent together are just part of the problem. Just to have that time together, their work will suffer the most. The organisation are certainly not paying them for this. Their co-workers left with no choice and will cover them off when their superiors are around. These kind of behaviour affects the organisational goals and the performance of both the employees.
When there is any relationship, there is always conflicts and fights and because of these fights it create stress which can affect office environment and will make difficult to achieve organisational goals. Fights in small matters create confusion, stress which will affect team work and misunderstanding and would lack interest to perform in the organisation.
Due to spending most of the office time togather can create a decline in their performance level which is noticed by their colleagues and can take advantage of them. Workplace romance can decrease the concentration level depending on the state in the relationship. . In most of the workplace...

A Depression Scholar Knows What It Takes
By: Robert Samuelson
It would have been insane for US president Barack Obama not to nominate Ben Bernanke to a second term as chairman of the Federal Reserve. The economics dictated, as did the politics.
We will never know whether the world might have suffered a depression if Bernanke’s Fed had not responded so aggressively.
Early this year, the Nobel Prize- winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman issues depression warnings.
Bernanke admitted similar fears in interviews with David Wessel, economics editor of The Wall Street Journal and author of In Fed We Trust. The fact that the global economy is no longer uncontrollably spiraling downward (for 2010, the Economist Intelligence Unit predicts growth of 2.7 percent for the world and 1.8 percent for the United States) was no foregone conclusion.
Nor was it ordained that the panic gripping financial markets just six months ago would subside. From recent lows in March, the US stock market is now up roughly 50 percent.
It is not that Bernanke’s performance was flawless. Far from it. He made two blunders. First, he didn’t see the crisis coming. Even after the collapse of the investment bank Bear Stearns in March 2008, he didn’t foresee a widespread financial panic or a savage...
