When referring to a 'working person' what are the underlying models and frameworks influencing and guiding a person's behavior and actions in a professional environment and impact on one's work performance in the workplace.
A working person is the one who, whether skilled or unskilled, earns his living at some manual or industrial work. The people who are able and likely to work between the age group of 20-65 years comes under the category of working person and who contributes to growth of an economy of a country. Each region may have different range of ages, but generally 20-65 are used. An individual and his/her behavior cannot be understand without considering various aspects of that individual's environment i.e. social, political, familial, temporal, spiritual, and economical. A working person's behavior may be affected by any of these aspects. A person-in-environment will provide more adequate framework for assessing an individual and his/her problems and strengths than an approach which focuses only on changing an individual's behavior, or that focuses only on environment conditions. There were a number of historical developments in the first two decades of the 20th century which leads to the more formal view of the concept in the emerging profession. A person working in an organisation is affected by many factors. Decisions about right or wrong permeate everyday life. Ethics concerns person's all levels of life i.e. acting properly as individuals working and expanding organisations. Both law and ethics deal with how one should live together with others. Law should be flexible enough so that individuals can act comfortably in a professional environment. There is a difference between Professional Attitudes and Behaviors. Attitudes are the values which an individual hold, their thoughts and feelings.…...

A Respectable Person

...A Respectable Person Who is the superman in the world? I would answer my grandfather without any hesitation. When I was little, my grandpa took much care of me, and he also picked me up from school every weekday, because both of my parents were busy with their work. My grandfather was not only a family leader and a farmer, but also a mentor and a wonderful grandpa for me. He was a very perseverant person, and he taught me many things that I cannot learn from school, such as the hard-working spirit, optimistic attitude, frugal lifestyle and the philosophy to deal with problems. Besides, my grandpa was generous and loved to help the underprivileged. Therefore, my grandfather was the person whom I admire and respect most. My grandfather was a hard-working farmer. Living in the countryside, my grandfather owned a piece of land to grow grains. It seemed that he had no holiday because he worked in the farm every single day, wearing a raincoat on rainy days and putting on a straw hat under the heating sun. Whenever he picked me up from school, instead of going back home directly, he always took me to see his farm first. I sat on the back of grandpa’s bicycle, and enjoyed the view of crops glowing in the sunset. Every time when we were there, he would read a Chinese poem, “How many of you realize that each grain in your rice plate is a result of hard labor.” in order to tell me how hard it was to grow the crops. Besides, he tried to be the model for me not to waste any food...

What Is a Person

...question “what is a person,” is a question that many use to argue points of contention. In cases relating to abortion, capital punishment, or even animal rights, this question is posed to create a line; on opposite sides of this line lay the differences between “persons” and “not persons.” However, it is not practical, nor is it possible to have one unified definition that defends or refutes any of these points. It is important to note that although this question can be answered for individual points, it is not a question that can be answered with the same boundaries for all points collectively. Although a case by case basis can be given, a unified answer lies in the fact that the all points can collectively be answered ethically. As defined by Mary Warren in her argument that abortion is an ethically acceptable action, a person is a being that fulfills five characteristics: consciousness, reasoning, motivation, capacity to communicate, and the concept of self (the ability to see oneself as an entity). She concedes that there are cases in which a person may be considered a person if that being has several of these characteristics, but also states that in these marginal cases, the greatest benefit to society is that personhood is defined to ethically condone the most moral actions. For example, in the case of a mentally retarded human being who most likely has consciousness, motivation, and communication skills, that person should be considered a person as this person has......

Person Perception

...Person Perception - The psychological processes by which we form impressions of other people and formulate judgements about them. Social cognition is the study of how people process social information about other people it includes how we perceive other people and the impressions we form of them. Also how we interpret the causes of their behaviour and the attitudes we have about them. Central Traits are personality characteristics that have a greater impact on the formation of impressions about other people because they correlate highly with other traits allowing more inferences to be drawn about a person Impression formation An active process (or set of processes) through which we seek to know and understand others (Baron &Byrne, 1997, p38) First impression refers to the influence of information that came early rather than late in a social encounter. This is also known as the primacy effect (Asch, S. E (1946) Forming impressions of personality, Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology, 41, 258-290). Asch found that initial information carries greater weight than subsequent information. An example of such; a person we have just met makes an initial intelligent comment but subsequently says several things that sound not so intelligent. The early intelligent comment would carry a disproportion influence on the impression we have of this person. Physical attractiveness heavily influences first impressions. People immediately assume that handsome and......

Persons with Disabilities

...PERSONS with DISABILITIES Persons with disabilities are faced with challenges that go beyond the average person, When they are sick or have something they are unable to communicate or how about legal issues. These issues require someone to speak up on their behalf, someone who will support them and look out for them in their best interest. Advocacy Advocacy is the act of pleading or arguing in favor of something, such as a cause, idea, or policy; active support (The Free dictionary by Farlex, 2013). Many face problems when it comes to advocating for people with disabilities because of the communication. Many who cannot communicate effectively are misunderstood. Because they cannot express themselves or they are at a level where they cannot explain their needs. This happens in all areas of their life. Then you have those who do not speak and are limited or do not know how to use sign language and those further threatened by not being able to sign or communicate. This causes the needs of those with disabilities to not to be met, affecting their well-being. This follows in their personal life, medical/health, and legal issues as well. The issue of needed advocacy and their needs properly met is a problem (Krahn & Campbell, 2013). Plan recommendation This plan could help, certainly, the issues still would befall but these could aid the situation. Public health awareness requires appropriate data so it is followed and traced. The population monitored to aid in the tracing....

The Manager as a Person

...The Manager as a Person Calvin H Cole III BUS 201 Dr. Amanyraoufpoor November 23, 2009 The Manager as a Person Why does the same retail store as another, within the same market area as another, do so much better than the first? The company is the same, the merchandise is the same, customers are the same, and prices are the same. The only thing different are the people who work in the two stores and the people who manage the two stores. Employees are the same almost anywhere you go. Some are hard workers, some are lazy, some are always on time, some are always late, some want to be at work, and others never want to be at work. What makes the difference between the two stores are the managers and their ways of managing. What makes manager’s different are their values, attitudes, emotions, and culture: The manager as a person. There are many things that make us become the person we become in life. These things include family, friends, special moments, tragic events, and just plain old every day life. All of these things help us decide who we are and what we become. Within each of us are values. Values are the ideas we have and that helps us to believe what is good, right, desirable, and beautiful as a society (Jones & George, 2007a, p. 60). These same values are what makes managers decide to manage the way they do, and make the decisions they make everyday to run a business. Their values are what makes them behave the way they do and the......

Working

...is not exceptional for people with an international career. People who work in the IT sector have to travel a lot as well. Even scientists have several conferences in different countries. All in all, it is clear that an international career comes with both advantages and disadvantages. It allows people to discover new places and thereby get new experiences. Yet, it also demands from the employees to stay away from home and have a certain language capability as well as several other qualities. I personally would reject an international career because I believe that it requires too much of oneself. The major disadvantage, in my opinion, is that you are not able to live at home. However, for people with the ambition of travelling while working at the same time, an international career might be something worth pursuing....

...phones are useful in case of an emergency, if necessary, you should pull over to the side of the road, stop the vehicle, make a call, and re-enter traffic after the call is completed. There are several ways the government could regulated cellular phone usage while driving that could benefit everyone on and off the road. Cell phones were introduced in the United States market in the decade of 1980 and their usage instantly grew during next two decades. The trend of using cell phones has increased throughout the world. One of the primary reasons for the gigantic growth of cell phones is that they facilitate communication offering high levels of flexibility reaching desired person within seconds whether he/she is at office, home, or outside driving a car etc. Cell phones support in making a direct contact with person effectively and without wastage of any time. Other main reason for the explosive growth of cell phones is the safety aspect.

What Is a Person?

...Anthony Cimini Paper 1 2-23-14 What is a Person? What is a person? What are the properties that make up a person? What makes a person different that any other animal on planet earth? These are questions that philosophers have debated over for years. One common characteristic that philosophers have agreed upon is a person has the moral right of self- determination. This trait gives people inalienable rights. They are to be treated with more respect and dignity than one would give to a pet or a piece of property. But this is not the only trait that makes up a person. According to a philosopher named Dr. Philosophicus Veritas, in order for something to be considered a person it must possess the properties of intelligence and self-awareness. I would agree with this definition of a person, but I do not believe it is complete. I would add the properties of phenomenal consciousness and free will to the list. These properties are essential in order to be considered a human. To begin with, Dr. Veritas and I agree that the first property of intelligence is a vital piece of being a person. Intelligence is defined as the ability to learn and adapt to one’s environment and experiences on a daily basis. Without this property one could not be considered a human because I would not be doing anything morally wrong if I were to lock a creature without intelligence in my basement and treat it as a pet. Without intelligence the creature would not know that the environment of......

Bigger Person

...Bigger Person Mahatma Gandhi’s quote, “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win,” demonstrates how people are quick to judge and how being the bigger person pays off. Being the bigger person results in a quicker solution than arguing about the topic. Being the bigger person additionally enables the person to feel good about themselves. They can view themselves as more mature and strong-minded. Gandhi is teaching his audience how to win a fight against ignorant people through this quote. “First they ignore you,” is referring to the beginning of the argument when people judge you, and do not take you seriously. Therefore, they ignore you. Ignoring the person who is talking does not do anything, but make the person being ignored feel disrespected. An example of this in life would be a professor. If students are talking while the professor is speaking it is perceived as very disrespectful. Because the students are talking, they are ignoring the opportunity to learn from the professor. Racism could be another real-life example of this idea. For example, if in a group of people there is only one person of a different race, this person may not be heard for what he or she has to offer. That is not justified because all people should be treated equally. Another example of discrimination could be if a person is judged as not as intelligent as the people surrounding them. Maybe that person is just quiet and afraid to speak. The group could......

Person Essay

...Professor Basic Writing March 17, 2015 Set in Stone One of the most influential people in my life for me is my father Willian S. Diehl or also affectionately known as Pop. I am fortunate to have been raised and taught by a man like my father. The type of person, husband, and parent I have aspired to be is due in large part to the way I was encouraged, mentored and taught by Pop. He was a wise teacher who instilled in me the importance of working hard and being honest. He taught me that if I desired something strongly enough, I could with honest hard work, earn whatever I was seeking and be successful in all of my endeavors. I am sure my life has been profoundly influenced because of his teachings. Dad also taught me many trade skills that I would use extensively throughout my whole life. He also practiced and preached kindness and patience towards others and to be calm and level headed in stressful situations, to use your head as well as your hands. I guess the three things that I remember most about Dad is his intelligence, positive, calm personality, and honest work ethic. My father had wispy blond hair and was slightly balding. He was about 5’ 10” tall with deep blue eyes, fair complexion and weathered looking skin draped over a thin and lanky frame. When Dad walked, he had a slow, quiet, almost stealthy gait to him. Pop rarely yelled at me and my brother, he had a soft kind voice to match his demeanor. He was always clean shaven, with a minty sweet scent of after......

The Human Person

...The Dignity of the Human Person The “human person” is a philosophy of Louis Janssens from Vatican II, basically says that the human person is made in the image of God and is the unity of body and soul and that the person is human and living because of the soul. One of Janssen’s points was that all persons are utterly original but fundamentally equal. Daniel Sulmasy said that there are two types of dignity: intrinsic and attributed. He said that intrinsic is the kind people have simply because they are members of the human family; it is intrinsic to being human. Attributed dignity is the value or worth one attributes to others or to oneself. It is based on ones power, prestige, function, productivity, and degree of control. I believe that intrinsic dignity is the element that makes all human persons’ fundamentally equal and attributed dignity that makes them unique and the role of the health care provider is not to protect the dignity of the patient, but to respect the dignity of the patient as well as all human persons. Intrinsic dignity is not earned, compromised, increased or decreased by one's conduct or the conduct of others. This also means that no disease, disability, or suffering, of any kind, can reduce or compromise our intrinsic dignity, regardless of the quality of life. Intrinsic dignity remains equal in all humans from their beginning to their death and beyond. People in the severest stages of illness, who may have lost all measurable autonomy,......

The Influential Person

...Most of us would say that the person who made a big influence to them was their mother or their father .Some of us would say that their friends were the ones who influenced them, especially those people that have the same age like me. Someone might consider the influence one has and how the environment impacts his or her personality. Since when I was young, I used to be with my relatives so I can’t say that my mother or even my father, where my influence to be who I am since I don’t grow up on them . The person who made a big influence to me is my auntie. She was the one who raised me and took care of me since birth. Her name is Gloria and she is the older sister of my mother. Ever since I was a kid, she and my other aunts were the ones who took care of me because my mother is working abroad particularly on a cruise ship .My auntie is very much hands on towards me and she makes sure that I have the things that I need rather than what I want .She’ has time for me even if she’s not my mother and supported me to the things that I wanted .She has helped me many ways; she pushes me to be the best and she possesses good qualities that I try to obtain. She has taught me that to constant hard work, I will never fail. Even though, at times I get annoyed with her always pushing me, I know that she is just doing it because she wants the best for me. And so far, I have succeeded every time I have listened to her. At times I think the advice she is giving me is wrong, but I still......
