When it comes to the case of Ricks new job. Rick did not have much experience but his boss Mr. Peterson really liked him and the work that he was doing.

This is when the behavior is reinforced with good outcomes, and then the people will keep repeating that behavior. This is what should have been done in the case of Rick (Blanchard, 2013).

I would also add how to make a rational decision under stress. This would include how do we make decisions, and why we chose that way of thinking, use a behavioral decision-making models, rational models, and what are consequences, and how can you avoid them (MSG, 2015).
