BUS 4012 Capella University Effective Leadership Best Practices Paper.
This assessment provides you the opportunity to demonstrate a solid theory of leadership in a practical application that you can use in your organization.By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:Competency 1: Analyze the art and science of leadership.Write a leader guidebook of best practices that reflect the new science realities.Describe how the new science guidelines impact the success of an enterprise.Competency 3: Create an effective theory of leadership.Describe behaviors of effective leaders.ContextThe resources provided in this assessment cover both change renewal and chaos. Even though we fear change and long for the comfort of equilibrium, this closed and insulated stance means choosing to wear down and decay. When allowed to grow and evolve, living systems integrate diverse information through open feedback loops. Through self-referencing of values, traditions, aspirations, competency, and culture, systems recreate themselves in similar shapes, or what Wheatley (2006), calls fractals. A leader’s role is to invite disturbance, to create dangerously, because disturbance leads to dis-equilibrium and, therefore, growth and resilience.SHOW LESSBy choosing to openly engage with change and remembering identity, leaders can increase speed to market and shape consumer preference. Although counterintuitive, the more freedom allowed in a self-organizing system, the more creative and adaptive it can be. Most innovation to the marketplace occurs through the adaptation to a customer’s request by one or two individuals. Information, rather than needing to be managed, needs to be shared and processed to increase awareness and consciousness of complexity and ambiguity. In the absence of information, people make it up. They will make their own meaning.It seems the leader’s role is to openly invite new and disturbing information and to allow the organization to learn, make sense of, and respond or adapt to a changing environment, trusting self-referencing and stressing long-term identity.The resources in this assessment also explore the paradox of order and chaos—how, over time and with a perspective toward wholeness, what might appear as chaos begins to build up a repeatable pattern of the strange attractor. In human systems, meaning, purpose, and mission are the organizing principles. Even a small change may result in a big impact on the whole system, and it is sometimes the slow but constant factor that is the unseen danger. So it is a combination of a leader holding tightly to vision and values while allowing individuals the freedom to act.ReferenceWheatley, M. J. (2006). Leadership and the new science: Discovering order in a chaotic world. San Francisco, CA: Berrett–Koehler.Questions to ConsiderTo deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.Disruptive Information: Tell a story about a time in your life where you encountered disruptive information that resulted in innovation or growth. Describe the tension between ignoring, insulating, and avoiding this new information and how it gave way to opening, embracing, and integrating this disturbance. What was the role of self-referencing, remembering who you are and your values, aspirations, and gifts, to the eventual innovation or growth? Why is this an important capability for leaders, and why are you a better leader as a result of this experience?Adaptation: Think of a technology that was once cutting edge but later ceased to exist. Why did it die? Was it insulated? Did it die because it presented a closed posture to new or disturbing information? Also, tell a story of a technology that has survived due to the creativity of one or two individuals who adapted to their environment and who had the freedom to be flexible and adapt to a new reality. What role did a leader have in both of these situations? How would you write a self-organizing story for the self-destructed technology? What would a growth scenario look like for the technology that became obsolete? Visualize the leadership behavior that would encourage this renewal phenomenon.Discovery: Surprise is the only route to discovery. Given the new science, the New Business Realities, and the Thinking Habits, consider how a leader might include others in a journey of discovery that encourages empowerment, independence, and diversity while assuring alignment to values and mission.ResourcesSuggested ResourcesThe following optional resources are provided to support you in completing the assessment or to provide a helpful context.

In the Central and Western District on Hong Kong Island, there are quite a number of pre-World War II ancient buildings and avenues, most of them are going to be dismantled for solving the problem of urban disintegration. Sheung Wan Wing Lee Street, a tenement portion to the URA H19 and integral part of redevelopment proposal, in view of last few months, the community’s interest on Wing Lee Street. And majority of the opinion stating out that this URA project is completely failed to adopt the “people-centered” approach. Obviously, the major cause of the failure is due to the social value of Wing Lee Street. When decide whether to conserve the old building, we should take into account expert assessments of its cultural value and also its social value. Let us taking an international environmental paper “Bula Charter Guidelines as an example, “Cultural Values” Article 2.5 from the guidelines state that “Social value embraces the qualities for which a place has become a focus of spiritual, political, national or other cultural sentiment to a majority or minority group”. There are a lot of buildings in different places in Hong Kong of resembling time of life and style. What is extraordinary and unusual here is that the whole street has not been redeveloped recently. Many people thought that streets with old buildings like Wing Lee Street should be preserved because they were replete with Hong Kong people’s collective memories. As a result, there is a growing body of sentiment for its preservation. However, the government used to emphasize and spot development at the expense of preservation. They will not try to seek to get a proper scale between redevelopment and conservation. The URA’s original plan is to solve the puzzle of urban decay and to ameliorate the living conditions of habitants in decayed urban areas. But the plan for redeveloping Wing Lee Street is not in keeping with the dogma of balancing urban evolution against conservation. The government only thought that the street cannot show monuments, nor do any of the buildings there, appearing a special design. What’s more, a film produced by Hong Kong director – ‘Echoes of a Rainbow’ awarded with Crystal Bear prize at Berlin International Film Festival. It was the first time that a Hong Kong movie has obtained this award. This has delivered Hong Kong citizens together once again to consider of the preservation of our collective memories and the historical buildings. This film presented the collective remembrance of people here through the description of a Hong Kong household of four during the 1960s. It is significant stating that the execution of the film was come from Wing Lee Street in the Central district. That region about the street is slated for redevelopment by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA). The director has used a lot of authentic and actual acts on that street as background of the film, as a result it does not only make it to appear more practical-minded but also give audiences some immeasurable sensation and nostalgia of these decayed and old streets. After the film getting the award and was screened, there has raised a “fever” in hunting and exploration of Wing Lee Street. Just like the main theme of ‘Echoes of a Rainbow’-“Time can be a thief, but time cannot steal good memories and the Hong Kong spirit”. This is the foremost message that the producer wants to show to us. So, Wing Lee Street in Sheung Wan may be just a street, but it is part of Hong Kong history and keeps us reminded and citizens including the “post 1980s” and “post-1990s” generations join their efforts to treasure and safeguard them and therefore the redevelopment plan for the street is completely failed due to the eminent social value of Wing Lee Street. Apart from the high social value of Wing Lee Street, Building Value is another factor of the failure of the proposal. Quite a number of professors and scholars finished a building research from Sai Ying Pun to Central. They have recognized a “tenement buildings, being its puny body weight, stretchable layout, the construction of a simple form, should be our city building a part of cultural heritage.”As the Wing Lee Street, the tenement housing in the entirety and in a extraordinary space on the street level, and its architectural significance is much higher than some singular buildings infrequent on the avenue or in a tenement building has been segregated and contrasted with the building in No. 145-153 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun, is also appreciated as ” distinctive value of the architecture of cultural heritage, it is of an equivalent value. So calls on the government not to dismantle but to preserve Wing Lee Street have become increasingly sturdy among conservationists for cultural heritages. Moreover, the main purpose of this redevelopment project is due to the building safety of the buildings of Wing Lee Street. Secretary for Development Carrie Lam had said that the buildings there were beyond repair and had to be dismantled. However, after carrying out a preparatory reconnaissance on Wing Lee Street Buildings by professional engineers and surveyors, it can be established that the whole set of columns do not discover tenement difficulty to repair the building safety puzzles. The existing portions of the wall surface cracks and illegal porch and roof fabrication, can be repaired by the rehabilitation efforts, there is no insurmountable technical problems. Actually, Wing Lee Street 1-2 has been completed rehabilitation of the outcomes somewhat well. At the same time, a up-to-date main research of old buildings conducted by the Buildings Department, also shows that the environs is not the old housing in Wing Lee Street buildings fall into disrepair, imperiling the safety of the pillar. In an article issued by the URA in March 2008 report of the scrutiny of the street and the buildings have not been come to the “incapability for rehabilitation due to old age” settlement. So, the view that “the buildings there were beyond repair and had to be demolished” should be discarded. Therefore, this project will redouble social controversy, leading in momentous repercussions of the public right “URA violates about private property rights” interests. In conclusion, the URA is required to adore the residents’ will be able to redevelop the Wing Lee Street, and to explore another proposals.
A vampire is a mythological or folkloric creature that is famous in their blood sucking ability in order to prolong their life and their super strength. The term vampires was not popularized until 18th century in Western Europe because of superstitious beliefs and continuously popularized in our present time because of some famous movies and books that were related to vampires attracted us. We were fascinated by their special traits, habit, characteristics and ability. But those were just fictional characters and created by the artistic imagination of the authors or the movie makers about vampires. People of today, when hear the word “vampire”, the first thing they come in their mind is Edward Cullen (Twilight 2008 the vampire romance series) and any movies that has a vampire appearances or those vampires that they read in a fictional book particularly “The Twilight Saga” by Stephanie Meyer. They don’t have any ideas what is a real human vampire. But do you have any idea what are the characteristics of a real vampire? Do you want to know the common misconceptions about them? And why these misconception spread out all over the world? History of the word vampire: The word vampire was borrowed from the French word “vampir” in the early 18th century. But according to some sources it came from Slavic language “vampir”, Bulgarian “vapir” Croatian “upir/upirina, Czech and Slovac “upir”, Russian “upyr'”, Belarusian “upir” and Ukaranian “upir”, many of these languages have also borrowed from the word”vampir/wampir” in the western country. The word “upir” as a term of vampire, was first founded in year 1047 AD into a letter to a Novgorodian prince referring to him as “Upir Lichyj” which means the wicked vampire. The word “upir” is still a controversial based on its real meaning, in some languages upir means “to blow”. “to drink” “bat” and “to fly”. It is still hard to tell how the word vampire came from and what it is real origin, if it was discovered, invented or flourished by just a written word, the exact etymology from where the word vampire is still a mystery and unclear. (http://vampires.monstrous.com/etymology_vampire/htm) The first vampire word appears in the Oxford English Dictionary in 1734 and it came from the old Russian word “upir”. A brief description about vampire myths Vampires are evil creatures with very pale skin and wear capes are believed to live for more than a hundred of years. They commonly live in coffins, but they also live in graves or any dark places and sleep upside down. They are nocturnal, meaning that they are active at night and asleep by day. Vampires are afraid of sunlight or any ultraviolet lights and cannot touch religious artifacts, they burned into ashes when they were expose to sunlight or sprinkled by holy water. Garlics, roses, rosary, silver and an aloe vera hung backwards are the famous repellent to them. They don’t have any reflection when they look in a mirror and don’t cast shadows because they were believe that they have no souls. They have super strengths and they have a special ability to transform into any kinds of animal, particularly into a bat. Most of all, they have long sharp fangs that they use to bite the neck of their victims easily and suck their blood and then the victim instantly turns into a vampire himself. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/vampires) Misconceptions about vampires Vampires are evil and know what they are doing is an evil thing. They are seductive, physically strong, and they don’t need any jobs. They are immortal or undead and the only way to kill them are by exposing them on sunlight, hit their heart with a stake, break their neck or beheaded them, burn them with fire and more vampire-fictional killing method. (http://hubpages.com/hub/howtokillavampire/) They were repelled by roses, garlics, roses and silvers. They drink human blood to nourish them and give them strength; otherwise, if they don’t suck blood, they die. They can’t expose themselves on sunlight or any ultraviolet lights or else, they might get burned or explode violently. They live and sleep in a coffin upside down, wear black cape and have long and very sharp fangs that grows longer and longer when they smell blood, and when their victim was bitten, it instantly became vampire themselves. They had a very pale skin, and when they look in a mirror, they don’t have any reflection because it is believed that they have no souls and they don’t cast shadow either. They can’t go into church and touch religious artifacts or else they get burned. They can fly and they have an ability transform into any kinds of animals particularly into a bat. (http://vampireamongus.com/vampchars.html) The real human vampire Human vampires exist, but they are not like those on what we watch on TV’s or what we read on books or novels. They were called vampires because they have some characteristics like a vampire. Human vampires have strong desire on blood. The people you get close to tend become tired, weary and upset a lot when with you. They begin to find you interesting at first, but soon they began to avoid you. Even if you are with others, you feel alone. The sunlight or bright lights tend to hurt your eyes easily and you prefer to work at night because you feel more comfortable at night. You have strong interest about vampires, you seldom get sick and when you have a wound, they heal easily and swiftly. You have the ability to read the auras of the others and you seem look younger even if you are more than 20 years of age. Animals get tends to you and you have strong passion about sex. You only have one or two friends or companion who really understands you and whom you get along with. They suffer from allergies and have very sensitive senses.Most of all, they are humans with some extraordinary traits or habits. The truth about vampires: The statement of Lady Rose Noire(2008): Vampires are just like everyone else, they have generally tend to have more intense and charismatic personalities. Vampires need to earn a living, which mean they need a job to buy some foods and other necessary things that we need in order to live. Vampires are physically mortal and have immortal souls. They can die from anything, bullets AIDS or even accidents, however, the sunlight can’t kill them, it is just fictional way to slay them. Roses, garlic and others repellents on vampires have no effect on them, the only way they might repelled by rose is because the thorns might prick them. They drink blood, but they have a regular diet to, and drinks water as well. Vampires can go out in sunlight and the reason they exposed much on sunlight is because their eyes might irritate them, cause headache and they take care of themselves to prevent heatstroke. They don’t ware capes at all, they wear just like the normal people, they don’t have any fangs, unless it is surgically implanted and vampire might be pale if he/she avoid sunlight if he/she is sensitive to it. (http://vampireamongus.com/vampchars.html) Not all vampires are evil and they don’t know if there doings is an evil thing or not, “…there is no being on earth who can state with any validation what is good and what is evil. There are a great many evil humans out there too, anyway. Furthermore, not all vampires even know they are vampires…let alone contemplating whether their vampirism makes them good or bad. “(Lady Rose Noire, 2008) The statement of Robias (2008) Vampires are sensitive to sunlight, especially their eyes. So they were eye glasses to prevent their eyes from soaring or irritation. They get burned, but only a sun burn. Vampires aren’t afraid of garlics, and they can eat garlics. They were repelled if they were allergic to it or sometimes they can’t take too long the smell of the garlic. The only way they might repelled by roses in when the thorns prick them. Vampires can go to church, touch religious artifacts and don’t get burned when sprinkled by holy water. This myth came from religious people that believed that vampires are evil and don’t have any souls. Vampires are undead. Vampires are not dead; they are alive and have pulse. These rumours spread out because vampires in the early times are cadaver that awakens after their burial. Vampires don’t have any long sharp fangs, unless it was surgically implanted or they wear fake fangs. In early times, it is believed that their fangs grow longer and longer when they smell blood and vampires need these fangs to bite easily their victim. Vampires don’t have super strengths. Most vampires that appear in the movie, particularly Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga has super-human strength. This isn’t true, it is a fiction. Vampires can’t transform into a bat or any kinds of animals, even human living vampires, they can’t transform into anything they want. This is another myth among vampires. Vampires don’t sleep in a coffin. They were once thought that they rise from their resting place when the sun goes down and goes back to their tomb before the sun rise, they do this to prevent light from entering their resting place. (http://www.vampireforum.net/vampire-general-discussion-vampire-chat/3329-vampire-misconceptions.html) Why these misconception spread out? Literatures The poem Vampire (1748) by Heinrich August Ossenfelder, is where the first vampire appeared. The influential fictional book of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1987), the famous Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight (2005) became the most influential cause of misconceptions of vampires. These also include the first scientific novel of Richard Matheson’s 1954 “I Am Legend”. (http://www.ign.com/blogs/DarkBlood999/2010/10/14/correcting-a-misconception-the-vampire-diaries/) Movies Mostly, vampire movies originated from books or novels about vampires and still the misconception about vampires broadcast it in that movie. Like “I am Legend” (2007), Twilight (2008) “The Vampire Chronicles: Interview with the vampire” (1997) they added some fictional features of vampires which is totally a myth. (http://www.ign.com/blogs/DarkBlood999/2010/10/14/correcting-a-misconception-the-vampire-diaries/) Conclusion Vampires in our era are only based on a myth created by artistic imagination of some people. They are just like any other human beings in this world, but they have extraordinary habits like strong passion on bloods. No one can judge them if they are evil or not. “…there is no being on earth who can state with any validation what is good and what is evil…” (Lady Rose Noire, 2008). The reason why these misconception spread out is because of those movies and novels about vampires defining them as a super natural being that live for more than a hundred of years and have super extraordinary power is absolutely ridiculous. They are humans; they have mortal bodies and have immortal souls.
