“The Breakfast Club” In the movie “The Breakfast Club” three interpersonal Terms that I found to be successfully use in the movie is. Interpersonal communication when the five high school student has to realize their mean to communicate with one another. Affection, the basic human need to be liked, this is when the tough guy that show himself not as one of the high school student, but show some affection and caring toward other as well, and Self-disclosure, an occasion when you just want to tell someone something about you, open up to others.
While these students are in a completely different clique, they were not complete stranger to another; force to stay in detention, these five students got to know one another by sharing their stories and understanding one another. The breakfast club is one of a great movie that express the form of message to convey that communication can really bring the best out of one another. In the breakfast club we have, Allison, a weirdo, Brian, a nerd, John, a criminal, Claire, a prom queen, and Andrew, a jock, all of them are forced to stay in detention on Saturday, but by the end of the day, these kids found out that they have more in common to one another then they believed elsewhere.
The interpersonal communication term will be selected from the scene where Clair and bender are going through one another purse. The scene represent that interpersonal communication is a very heavy influences on both of the characters. In the previous scene between Bender and Claire, they are very hostile toward one another, and very self-disclose.
Claire ask Bender some very personal question from either her experience to his experience, and Bender will answer, but no matter what Bender answer he continuously sending Claire a message about himself, which is a form of communication. As for Bender he probably wouldn’t mind asking the same question after realizing about Claire disbelief in monogamy. We know that interpersonal communication is irreversible as well, after this scene has been showed to us, it would be very hard for Bender to argue that he believes in monogamy or for Claire to argue that she doesn’t.
Then we come to Affection. Affection defines as a basic human need to be liked and esteemed. We take “The criminal” John Bender, he show now respect toward anyone more especially toward the teacher and school property, but then John began to begin to show acceptance for himself and to his classmates during at the end of the movies, He began to accept that he need to accept the kind of person he is, and showing more and more kindness toward everyone else.
During the whole movies, John always make fun of Claire “ The Princess”, but at the end we all know that he doing it obviously doing it to shows compassion toward her. This showed he wanted to belong somewhere. He accepted himself by not showing as a tough guys throughout the entire show, but showing affection and caring.
Lastly, Self-Discloser. “ We are all pretty bizarre. Some of us are better at hiding it, that’s all” Andrew “The Breakfast Club”. Andrew describes the struggle to live up to his father expectation, and other opinion as well. Also of Bender stories of how his father abuse him. Both stories are somewhat very different among each other, but that is why Bender tell Andrew “ I think my dad and your dad ought to get together and go bowling”. Both of them now are bonding together to fight against someone that are very self-discloser to them. Parent, peer pressure, boredom but mostly it is authority figures.
Business management discussion response
The first thing I would recommend Gap do is to solicit input from their customers using methods like a survey or a competition to come up with an idea for what they would like to see on the market. This would put them back in touch with their customers and give them a feel for what they want so that they are not switching blindly and rapidly from one product to the next that doesn’t sell. Secondly, since Gap was trying to copy rivals and had no direction of their own, I think it would be a good idea for them to decide what kind of company they want to be. Do they want to cater to high-end customers or provide products at a low cost? Developing a mission statement would articulate their desired direction and help them focus their brand. Keeping their mission in mind would help them to avoid some of their mistakes, like cutting quality and expanding too fast. For example, if their goals included producing high quality products or targeting a higher end market, cutting quality would not have been a move that made sense for them.
I would also advise Gap to use a good decision approach. I think the conceptual style would work well here, because this approach involves the use of data and evidence. Looking at a wealth of information and using it to come up with multiple possible solutions to each problem could help them land on some winner ideas that will accomplish their goals with the least amount of time and resources used. As well as looking at information, this style also relies on communicating and collaborating with other people. Talking to coworkers, customers, and others in the business could generate good ideas that those making decisions may not have thought of on their own, and it also puts them in touch with what people want.
I would have to agree that most catastrophes in organizations, or any capacity really, result from a series of small problems or mistakes. As a new, entry level manager, I would attempt to observe as much as possible and ask for feedback from the current employees since they likely have been working at this organization longer than me and have a better idea of what has been working and what has not in terms of functionality,
I would also analyze each situation or process that I need to make decisions on to evaluate the long term impact as many decisions have one answer that seems like it would be the best solution, but the long term effects may not be as subtle so another choice would have less of a negative impact.
As a new manager I would apply the understanding that one must take record of their previous mistakes and in turn learn from them in order to not make the same mistake multiple times. By limiting the accumulation of small problems one can mitigate the number of catastrophes that may occur. I would also analyze the decisions I have seen previous managers make in my own decision making processes. I have had some exceptional managers and some that were not as great so I would draw from my past experiences prior to being a manager and how employees reacted to those decisions to help influence my own decision making. Of course, not all decisions can be repeated or translated directly across, but even the general trends of management I have experienced in the past are good to keep in mind.
