CHAPTER – 5 Case Incident 1 On the Costs of Being Nice

5-16 do you think employees must choose between agreeable employees and top performers? Why or why not?
5-16 Yes, I believe that employers must choose between agreeable employees and top performers. In an ideal world, employees would have both these qualities: agreeability and great performance. However, for the most part – as the case states – agreeable employees tend to be good-natured, cooperative, trusting and accommodating, whereas top performers tend to focus on being leaders, or doing what is needed to do the job right, without caring for others. If an employer find amongst its possible future employees who have both these qualities, he or she should definitely be hired. If both qualities are not present in a single candidate for employment, then the employer must decide which is more important for the company: agreeability or top performance.

5-17 often, the effects of personality depends on the situation. Can you think of some job situation in which agreeableness is an important virtue, and some in which it is harmful to job performance?

5-17 Agreeability is always important if you want your firm to have a good working environment and not a hostile one. However, there are instances in which being agreeable is more important. Such cases may be when dealing with others. For instance, people who work in the customer service sector must be agreeable, as customer satisfaction is very important. Another job situation could be working with patients or students – especially young ones. Being too agreeable could be harmful, for instance, in the real estate sector, where every employee wants to get more commissions by selling more properties. Being too agreeable in this instance could be harmful, as the person could tend to help others, and forget that his or her own goal is the same: to sell houses. Another situation in which it may be harmful is in the military sector, as the leaders of which need to show dominance for others to follow their orders.

5-18 in some research we have conducted, we have found that the negative effect of agreeableness on earnings is stronger for men than for women (that is, being agreeable hurt men’s earnings more than women’s). What do you think this might be the case?

Document File obvious that a globe is what you need. Even thousands of years ago, people saw things happening around them everyday that couldn't be explained by the theory of a flat world. If the world was flat, why did the sun always come up every morning in the east and go down every evening in the west? And why did the stars move in a circle in the night sky? These movements in the sky didn't prove that the world wasn't flat. But they gave clues about the real shape of the earth. More people in the ancient world came to believe that the world was a sphere. 5. You are a member of a committee formed to develop parks in your city.

Diels Alder Paper

...aldehyde as the heterodienophile and a diene in a hetero-Diels-Alder reaction. Extensive studies on this reaction have been completed. Huang and Rawal chose to study this reaction using hydrogen bond promoted ketones as the heterodienophile rather than aldehydes. This is the first time that unactivated ketones have been successfully utilized in a hetero-Diels-Alder reaction. This research is extremely valuable as it expands the extent by which oxygen heterocycles can be formed. This is extremely important to the biological chemists who study and utilize oxygen heterocycles frequently (1). Huang and Rawal began their study by observing the hetero-Diels Alder reaction rates between various aldehydes and the diene 1-amino-3-siloxybuadiene. They found that the reaction rate was siginificantly higher in polar protic solvents rather than polar aprotic solvents (2). They attributed this change in the reaction rate to the fact that the carbonyl oxygen in the aldehyde could readily hydrogen bond to the hydrogen in the polar protic solvents. This hydrogen bonding causes the carbonyl carbon to develop a partial positive charge, thus enabling the aldehyde to be a stronger heterodienophile. This in turn causes the hetero-Diels-Alder reaction to proceed at a faster rate. After seeing the effect of the solvent on the aldehydes, Huang and Rawal decided to extend their study to ketones. Similarly, these researchers found that the polar protic solvents also affected the......

The mean concentrations of Ca, Cd, Fe, Pb and Mn were significantly different between the three study sites (River Chenab, River Ravi and Rawal Lake Reservoir). The mean concentrations of Ca, Cd, Fe and Mn were significantly greater at the River Chenab heronry and Cr, Co, Zn, and Pb concentrations at the River Ravi heronry. The feathers of cattle egrets collected from the Rawal Lake Reservoir heronry were least contaminated. Multivariate statistical methods viz., Factor Analysis based on Principal Component Analysis (FA/PCA); Hierarchical Cluster analyses (HACA), and Correlation Analyses identified relatively similar associations of metals and their sources of input. Metals such as Ca, Mg, and K were related with natural input from parent rock material whereas trace metals viz., Cu, Cd, Co, Pb, Ni, and Zn were associated mainly with anthropogenic processes. Metals such as Fe, Mn, and Li were either correlated with natural input or with anthropogenic activities. Concentration......

...CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR Service Quality Perceptions of Domestic Airline Consumers in India: An Empirical Study SUBMIITED TO: MEENAKSHI HANDA BY: SAHIL MALHOTRA (13) RAHUL KALRA (39) Abstract Pricing and service quality are the key variables that decide the brand equity of each player in the airline industry. Existing literature suggests that measurement and management of service quality is the key for survival of airline companies. This research paper examines the service quality delivered by four major airlines in India on the backdrop of stiff competition in the airline service sector. The process of traveling on a domestic airline was divided into pre-flight, in- flight and post-flight experiences. A survey was conducted to find out the perceived service quality of frequent fliers on each of the four airlines across a series of service performance variables. The airline brands were positioned in a perceptual space, where the perceived service attributes were also mapped. Clear differences emerged among the airlines, with two of them perceived as being similar to each other, and the other two differing in many respects. INTRODUCTION India at present has twelve competing airlines in the domestic market as against a single government owned airline in 1991. According to McKinsey Quarterly (2005), the Indian aircraft market is the world’s second largest commercial aircraft market. On-time performance and service levels have risen dramatically and fares......

Child Abuse

...Child Sexual Abuse in the Home The majority of organisations have encountered obstacles in working on child sexual abuse within the family. Most people said families were difficult to access, since the family is private terrain, which culturally cannot be questioned or looked into. Challenging these norms however were, organisation like Breaking the Silence (Bangladesh), Sahil (Pakistan) and Rozan (Pakistan). By working in schools and providing anonymous counselling through help-lines, email and postal mail, they seemed to be successful in reaching out to children within their homes. In all countries visited, it was found that women were the primary target group in terms of psychosocial support and protection for children from abusers both within and outside the family. Talking to mothers on how to protect their children was considered to be a concrete step towards both prevention and reducing further abuse. Male members of families rarely came to centres for counselling, and no interventions were identified that focussed on working with fathers or other male family members. A study conducted by Sahil, called ‘Conversations with Mothers about Child Sexual Abuse’ investigated the family as a potential site of sexual violence. Some interesting findings about family relationships and children’s views of violence can also be found in ‘The 5 Children of Kabul: Discussions with Afghan Families’, an as yet unpublished report by SC US, Afghanistan. It was seen that......

...reputation remains untainted. The group member found this book to be interesting with an unpredictable twist in the end. The need to have a good reputation is not only found in humans but, this blemish can also be found in dogs. The second book, “Call of the Wild” read by Sahil depicts this theme from the initial scene with Buck’s new friend, Curly getting brutally murdered. Curly unknowingly hurts the ego and pride of the Alpha dog, Spitz provoking him to act out to protect his wounded pride and live up to his status. In addition, throughout the book, Buck is required to build a name and reputation for him amidst all the other wild dogs. Formerly a domesticated dog, Buck initially struggles in finding his roots and his ability to mix in with the rest of the naturally wild dogs. By becoming primitive, Buck strongly desires to not only survive in the wild but, to become the leader of the pack. This causes the arousal of conflicts between Spitz and Buck which were preventable if the dogs did not have much importance for their pride. Due to his need to protect his own competency, Buck is fueled with his primitive instincts enabling him to rightfully become the new Alpha leader of the pack. Regarding this book, Sahil comments, “This book was pretty interesting and the characters were surprisingly intriguing and relatable.” He enjoyed the book and had a fairly positive opinion about it. Even though this book had dogs as the main characters, it still mirrored the same theme as the......
