A3F Competence Paper I never realized our the importance pf how I engage within my work environments and a grouo until I tool this class. I have been operating on the defense and blaming people from not seeing things through my lense. Years of working with families and children as well as team groupo settings had added a level of stress to me that is insane. I would always wonder why arer people doing certain things are choosing to express themsleves in certain ways. Now that I have taken this class and through the rradings and grooup assignments I have discovered that this is a necessary process when working woth different people in different settings. My cultural orinetations have been a true shock to me since starting

I have had many road blocks and at times issues with comprehension and completion of task. I alos had alot of anxiety working within the group because of my poreconceive notions that I thought people would have about me. The funny thing is no one even made me feel that way but brought those feelings on myself. When I first met with my group I was so scared because of the unknown and I was aware that everyone would be bringing something to the groupo but I didn’t know what my coontribution would be initally. So I was very obserservant during my first group encounter and I mainly listened. After the ball started rolling and the conference call started and the deadlines needed to be met that’s when I really seen how a few of my orinetations were impactful to the group and also how I handle issues within my work environment. One orientation that stood out the most for me was my ability to be Fixed which means I need to follow schedules and manage time precisely. Now for me this was something new because although I would complette tasks within my work …show more content…
According to the cultural navigator people in the U.S. business world feel that the expression “nobody is above the law” applies to corporate human resources policies as well. Historically, the United States was founded on the concept that all are created equal, and that laws should apply evenly to everyone, a universalistic attribute that translates to U.S. business values as well. My COI correlates with the same notins as most americans according to the cultural navigator. My sense of obligation is primarily tied to rules and not to individuals. I have little tolerance for making exceptions to these rules and principles, and you expect people to submit to general guidelines. I believe that everyone has essentially the same rights and responsibilities, regardless of particular circumstances. I strongly dislike favoritism and value fairness as an essential component of integrity and professionalism. The COI report acording to the cultural navigator states that Australians believe in a universalistic orientation in the workplace. They place value on laws governing equal rights and negatively react to abuses of power.our business interactions usually conform to a solid base of principles. I on other hand beilve that judgments and actions are guided by an abstract sense of fairness and right and wrong. I associate fairness with a

    I never liked working with people, as I am not a very socialize person and struggle to interact with new people or people whom I don’t really know well. However, this group presentation has changed my whole perspective of working in teams. And now I can say that, I will be able to put myself out in front of people, and bond with them better than before. From this presentation preparation, I not only improved in working in a group, I also learned methods of researching and analyzing. The presentation contain many tasks; such as selecting reading materials, reading various article and critically analyzing them.…

    Nishii and Özbilgin (2007: 1883) argue that every nation 's understanding for diversity and difference are exclusive only to their context. Such as in Canada the emphasis isn 't on ethnicity or gender but on whether someone is English or French speaking. For an employer of some country, diversity might mean something totally different than to his employee of another origin, leading to conflicted thought processes. Secondly, Managing diversity theoretically can be difficult to attain due the sameness and difference perspective. In the case of managers adapting the sameness approach, they suggest everyone is treated in the same manner and follow the ‘Equality Approach ' or ‘Equal Treatment ' without differentiating.…

    Also, some of my students were never before educated in English. I had to provide the expectations and structure for my classroom myself. I had to let students know what expectations I had and what consequences I was willing to enforce when the students did not follow my guidelines. I learned that an exciting lesson plan wasn’t enough to hold their attention, although it is a good start. For one thing, it’s very hard to be exciting every day.…

    I always believed that the teachers needed to give lectures and provide help, but the mindset was to go get your own help or fail. Initially, I thought that this class would provide structure and guidance to earn the qualifying score, but my teacher’s opinion was clearly different than what I believed. The situation was stressful, time consuming, and very frustrating for me to handle. I’ve never had so much difficulty with a class and it was mind boggling for me because I could not provide my own solution with such different opinions. Nevertheless, I endured the storm of…

    There 's A Lot of Difference Between Listening and Hearing Over the course of working on this semester long project with my group I have learned that my views regarding how I believed the team would function were inaccurate and have changed due to not aligning with how the group actually functioned. Tuckman’s stages of team development are very evident in our group as everyone was initially very open and energetic regarding the project, however very quickly we progressed into storming. The speed at which the dynamic of the group changed leaves me in awe looking back and curious as to how we accomplished anything. A few of the things I have learned from working in a group is that not all voices are heard the same way, there is more alienation…

    Teachers, well they made it even easier because I could call on them last second in the semester and they would come ready to help me tackle whatever task it was that I needed to get done. From my parents’ relationship, to my friendships and teachers I created terrible habits and more so a terrible attitude. I was never grateful for their help and positive attitudes when I without a doubt should’ve been. I began losing “friends” because I was so selfish and only wanted them to help with my school work. All of this occurred because I wasn’t sure how to handle my emotions.…

    School incorporated the notion of conformity into my head. Ever since then, my writing has been full of obstacles and different styles. My creativity has been colliding with the limits and restrictions of society. Sometimes, I can’t even think with my own mind because I’m too busy thinking about what and how everyone else is writing, how to appease my teacher, or the procedures of writing. My…

    Until my 20's I was constantly getting disciplined for something or other.With a life long history of severe ADD it has been very hard to be disciplined in any form or fashion.The word reminds me of all of my personal failures.Already after reading a few chapters and articles about the true meaning of spiritual discipline I feel that my view is going to be changed for the better by the end of this semester. Fasting,submission,meditation,solitude,prayer,worship,celebration,confession,guidance,service,and simplicity are the spiritual disciplines we are covering in this class. The two disciplines I am not familiar with are guidance and simplicity. After reading some of Ortberg's book I think the disciplines of guidance and simplicity will be taught in the book. Personally the act of worship always brings me encouragement.…

    Be it my own stubborn ignorance, my fear of genuine connection, or even my unwillingness to openly engage with emotions and experience them honestly. All of these difficulties were of my own design and I don’t feel that I have yet overcome any of them fully, but I do believe that I’ve made significant progress by confronting them head-on since the beginning of this course. First, I must admit that I came into this class at the beginning of the semester believing the work I was doing in it to be frivolous. I felt that we were going over material and techniques that complicated the acting process instead of nurturing it. I understood that acting took a lot and required relaxation and…
