Strengths to Leverage

Step 1: The most effective and satisfied people align their work with their natural strong points. Identify 3-5 of your key strengths (see Column 1 below); these could be a competency, skill, ability, knowledge area or personal characteristic. Think about how you can leverage those strengths to be effective in your work, achieve your professional goals, and become a leader in your profession.

Step 2: At the beginning of each course in your MBA program, answer the following question either using this template or a narrative format. What do you expect to learn in this course that will help you leverage your strengths? (See Column 2 below). Be as specific as you can, e.g., assume that strength is your analytical ability. You might expect to understand more about macroeconomics so that you can analyze how the housing crisis affects other segments of the economy, such as interest rates or unemployment. At the beginning of the course you are not expected to be an expert in all facets of the course learning; however, you can glean valuable insights from the course description or purpose, course and unit learning objectives, and from unit themes.

Step 3: At the end of each course (Unit 6) answer the following questions either using this template or a narrative format. Did you learn what you expected to learn? (See Column 3 below). Was there information or insights that helped you that you didn’t expect…...

Ireland’s Conflicted Ethno Nationalist History

...Popular there was a splinter in the unionist movement with the formation of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), this party came to the fore with a more traditional hard line stance against nationalist politics and the Catholic Church. The DUP hoped to recapture the more hard line demographic, due to the change to a more pragmatic position by the UUP in later years. The Nationalists form the apposing and protagonist position with in the state and are placed in stark contrast to the Unionist movement. With an agenda of unification established through the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), which contests the nationalist vote with Sinn Féin. Sinn Féin generally being accepted as the diplomatic arm of the Irish Republican Army IRA or conversely the IRA as the Para-military arm of Sinn Féin. This is the point at which political aspiration diverges to become physical terrorism, with the SDLP conceding that unification cannot be achieved without the majority of Northern Ireland’s support, however Sinn Féin through the IRA believed that a protracted campaign of terror designed to coerce the unionists and the minority Protestant population and by proxy the British government to concede to a reunification of Ireland through force. (Malamud. 2012. Pg.) Whilst IRA activity is well documented, it plays no part in the actual source of the conflict and like the British Army deployed to Northern Ireland is simply an extension of the means of failed political discourse.

Assess the View That Since 2007 the Assembly Has Been Successful in Holding the Executive Committee to Account

...ministers are within their right to ignore recommendations offered by the committees however effective they may be. Although they may say that they will take on board what the committee has suggested to amend and improve, Executive ministers have the final call and thus the judgment as to how effective the assembly actually is at not only holding the Executive to account, but also ensuring that it is followed through with. Another, less prevalent method of scrutiny is Question Time in the Assembly chamber itself. Oral and written questions can be asked of Departmental Ministers and they are obliged to give a reply to the statutory committee MLA member. Written questions in particular can provide an MLA with valuable information. Dolores Kelly SDLP used this when she asked a question of Edwin Poots, Health Minister, about the location of the Children’s Heart Surgery Centre; Dublin or Belfast, in May 2013. Question Time also allows MLAs to gain understanding and information: some time ago Martin McGuinness, Deputy First Minister, had to respond to questions about OFMDFM’s plan for delivering a shared future. This not only gained access to important information for the public, but it is also stood as a primary source and example of holding an Executive minister to account. However it can happen that, given the historical legacy that still resinates within many of our members of Parliament, many examples go to show that the function of Question Time as a method of scrutiny......

Belfast

...of Parliament (MP) for Belfast West. When he resigned in 2011 he had to accept a paid office of the Crown and was made Crown Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead although this title was rejected by Adams. He has been the president of Sinn Féin since 1983. Since that time the party has become the fourth-largest party in the Republic of Ireland, the second-largest political party in Northern Ireland and the largest Irish nationalist party in that region. In 1984, Adams was seriously wounded in an assassination attempt by several gunmen including John Gregg. From the late 1980s onwards, Adams was an important figure in the Northern Ireland peace process, initially following contact by the then-Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) leader John Hume and then subsequently with the Irish and British governments. In 2005, the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) indicated that its armed campaign was over and that it was exclusively committed to democratic politics. Under Adams, Sinn Féin changed its traditional policy of abstentionism towards the Oireachtas, the Parliament of the Republic of Ireland, in 1986 and later took seats in the power-sharing Northern Ireland Assembly. In 2014, he was arrested for questioning and held for four days by the Police Service of Northern Ireland in connection with the abduction and murder of Jean McConville in 1972. He was freed without charge and a file was to be compiled and sent to the Public Prosecution Service for Northern...

Key to Politics

...Politics Voting systems are often imperfect and often do not guarantee that the majority will of particular constituents are fulfilled. For instance, under Britain’s first past the post general election voting system, MP’s will frequently be elected with a minority of constituents support. In the 2010 election and the previous 2 elections (2001,2005) no MP had achieved the support of 50% of the total electorate in their constituency. A prime example of an MP winning with a minority was in the most recent election when Alastair McDonnell of the SDLP won Belfast South with a mere 24.5% of the vote, this means over three quarters of Belfast South did not want him to represent them. The electoral reform society were able to predict the result of 363/650 constituencies four weeks prior to the 2015 election, these are called safe seats. On the other hand some seats (81) are ‘marginal’ and an example of a ‘swing’ seat is Derby North where this year the Tories only won by 41 votes and it is these fine margins that decide our election. MP’s frequently follow party leadership instructions over thinking for themselves, their constituents or what is in the genuine best interest of the majority of the nation. For example Teresa Pearce, MP for Erith and Thamesmead has only voted twice against Labour and on a separate occasion opposed the majority will of her constituents by voting in favour of gay marriage. Elected representatives also frequently enjoy long terms in office (e.g. MP’s...

The referendum was on whether Northern Ireland should remain part of the United Kingdom or join with the Republic of Ireland to form a ‘United Ireland’. It was the first major referendum to be held in a region of the United Kingdom. The referendum was held On 23 January 1973, the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) called on its members "to ignore completely the referendum and reject this extremely irresponsible decision by the British Government".  Gerry Fitt, leader of the SDLP, said he “had organised a boycott to stop an escalation in violence”. The question “Do you want Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom?” won by a land slide 98.9% over the 1.1% of voters voting against. The electorate were asked to indicate: Choice | Vote | Percentage[5] | Do you want Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom? | 591,820 | 98.9% | Do you want Northern Ireland to be joined with the Republic of Ireland outside the United Kingdom? | 6,463 | 1.1% | The vote was not legitimate because the SDLP members did not vote. They could have opposed staying in the United Kingdom. Votes breakdown: * Electorate: 1,030,084 (in 1973 * Total votes: 604,256 (58.66% of Electorate) * Valid votes: 598,283 (99.01% of Total votes) * Spoiled votes: 5,973 (0.99% of Total votes) * Non-voters: 425,828 (41.34% of Electorate) Consequences: The Government of the United Kingdom took no......
