Interview a Leader What is the leaders current job title

Step 1: Interview a Leader What is the leaders current job title, and briefly describe what are specific job behaviors and outcomes that are needed for her/his subordinates to be perceived as an effective employee in her/his job role? How does the leader’s place of business try to motivate employees to engage in desirable job behaviors (task and citizenship behaviors) and discourage undesirable job behaviors (i.e., counterproductive behaviors)? You may want to follow up with questions about using selection, fairness of the rewards/outcomes, fairness of treatment, performance goals, job design/characteristics, etc. Step 2: Translate the “real world” into class concepts in the paper Restate the leader’s motivational practices into terms and concepts from our class, and then evaluate the leader’s effectiveness using theoretical explanations and evidence from class lecture and textbook (please cite by theory/article author, year). Example 1: “There are financial incentives.” Describe in terms of reinforcement schedule. Are they fairly distributed based on equity theory? Are the rewards linked to goals? Are the comments consistent with extrinsic rewards evidence, or the undermining effect of self-determination theory? Example 2: “We have to reach our performance goals”. Do the goals have the characteristics of goal-setting theory? How is feedback given and does that help? Example 3: “My employees just like what they do and so it’s motivating to them.” What aspects of the job make it intrinsically motivating, and is this consistent with job characteristics theory or theories about leadership, power, and influence tactics? Step 3: Write Paper Heading: The leader’s name, email address (or telephone number), Introduction: The job title and organization of your interviewee, description of the type of work and desired performance behaviors. Motivational Practices: Summarize the interviews: how did the leader try to motivate people, and what challenges do s/he faces. Be sure to USE TERMS from our class, and THEORIES (citing the relevant authors) to ‘make sense’ of their comments. Evaluate effectiveness based on evidence: How effective is the leadership and motivational practices, especially considering this group of employees/job context? Cite specific examples that provide evidence for these practices and how they are enacting them, moderators, etc. What changes to these practices would you recommend to increase motivation for their desired behaviors and/or discourage undesired behaviors? Are there costs or downsides to these practices? What about stress, well-being, job satisfaction? NOTE: Be sure to cite two or more specific THEORIES to support your evaluation and recommendations. Theories should come from the book or lecture slides, no extras needed. Papers are 2-3 typed pages MAX, Double-spaced, 1 inch margins, 12-point font) No cover page needed, no reference list–I should be able to find cites in the book or my slides. Must use APA-style formatting for in-text citations. PROOFREAD and FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS – You will lose points if you describe a work practice without showing its connection to the class topics. Bring in all theories/findings that are relevant for your interviewee’s comments! Think carefully about the interview and how it relates to class – this should involve reviewing the class notes and textbook. https://www.sendspace.com/file/eg60ox

Please use simple word with correct grammar (high school and college levels are fine). Here’s attached the information I got from the live dance performance. Please use it. Thank you! Concert evaluation paper: Critique of your required attendance at a “live, professional” dance performance. Talk about the dance performance.

Please see the attached worksheet. 1. A short (not greater than one page) conclusion that briefly summarizes your commentary on the actual spending compared to your budget set at the beginning of the month. In addition, comment on any other observations that you have on your spending analysis. 2. Hardcopy (one document in word) to be submitted using TurnItIn. You need to copy the excel as a table in your spending analysis. 3. The guideline: -Compile an estimate (budget) for how much you feel you will spend in the next 4 weeks (or as a normal spend in any 4 weeks within the next year) – just one number for each spending category under worksheet – for example, housing (accomodation) could be $500 because this is the proportion of your university housing already paid for the semester, or $500 because this is the share of the rent for off-campus accomodation actually paid each month . -Have a method of recording your actual spending each day, beginning this week (Jan 23rd), so that you will easily have a total at the end of the 4 weeks for each category. Have a glance at mint.com in case it can be of help although you may just settle with using excel. -Certain spending may be non-recurring, such as a tuition payment or deposit for a future event. These should still be reflected but will need to be noted when making comparisons to your budget which may not have included them or have the proportionate amount.

Does the state have a history of direct democracy

Since we are learning about state legislatures and how state governments operate in general, let’s take the opportunity to discover more interesting details about the many states in the Union. For this assignment, choose a state (FL, CA and TX are off limits! Can’t use any of these) and find out more about their particular governmental setup. How are powers separated (branches) and what are the individual powers of those entities? What is unique about their legislature? Does the state have a history of direct democracy? Are there any unique amendments in their state constitutions? And finally, does the state have important resources, landscapes and famous citizens? Paper Details 2-3 pages Typed, Double-spaced 12 pt. TIMES NEW ROMAN 1 inch margins on all sides Use proper SOURCING (works cited page) and IN-TEXT CITATIONS (MLA Style) Use AT LEAST 5 FORMAL SOURCES in your research – any less and points will be deducted. Each student will be required to write research papers on issues of state and local politics and government. See Course Calendar for Term Paper due date. Proper citation of sources is necessary; if you do not include your sources, you will receive a failing grade! Further information on the details of the paper (and how to turn it in) will be provided on Blackboard and discussed in class. CLICK THE LINK TO SUBMIT YOUR ASSIGNMENT
