Week 5: Debriefing Assignment of Shadow Health Week 4. Paper details To the writer : Please Use the Soap Note template provided by the school to complete the assignment and also the Lab Pass needs to be submitted along with the SOAP Note Purpose Debriefing is a critical conversation to reframe the context of a situation and to clarify perspectives and assumptions, both subjectively and objectively. Debriefing yields better retention, deeper learning, and increases the likelihood of the transfer of new or reinforced knowledge, skills and abilities to the clinical or broader healthcare setting. During the debriefing process, students reflect upon their simulation experience and revisit their assessments, interventions, and observations. The faculty-facilitator coaches the students to review the patient data and reflect upon the interventions performed in response to the clinical situation presented during the simulation experience Activity Learning Outcomes Through this discussion, the student will demonstrate the ability to: Reframe the context of a situation to clarify perspectives and assumptions (CO1) Foster high participant engagement through the use of interpersonal and communication skills (CO1) Differentiate normal and abnormal assessment findings (CO2) Facilitate transfer of knowledge gained from simulation experiences to actual clinical practice (CO4) Due Date The date and time for these synchronous activities will be posted in the course announcements made by the course instructor. Students are expected to arrive on time for Debriefing. Students who arrive late will be denied access to the debriefing session (locked out) by the debriefing facilitator. If the facilitator allows a student who is late to attend the debriefing session, a deduction of 10% of the total points will be applied to the final grade. Total Points Possible: 30 Points Requirements: NOTE: Students who attend Debriefing DO NOT COMPLETE the NR 509 Alternative Writing Assignment for the given week.

Leadership and Management Leadership and management often remain confused as these two are mostly taken in one content. John kotter who belongs to Harvard Business School classifies these two indifferent content, leadership as a part of management. According to him a single word management include different concept and leadership is one of its concept. Leadership actually means ability to influence other behaviours and acts in order to achieve a certain goal. In multi-national organization, leadership strategy is used by the managers as they want to lead their sub-ordinates to achieve that purpose for which the organization is made for. In any leader, confidence, motivation, better communication system, influencing others, decision making and goal setting characters are essentials as these are the major characters of any leader. The topic that the paper will cover is the leadership in McDonald within US and China. The paper aims to see the differences in leadership strategy used by US and China while particularly taking McDonald in consideration. This difference enables us to know different strategies these two countries have adopted. Moreover, the paper aims to describe the different leadership strategies used by these countries. Leadership in McDonald by US The democracy in US is more than in China, the reason compromises that US have high political background and have high delegate authority. The political system of the US country favours the democracy and the top management do not love to involve in the issues rather they use to delegate the authorities to their sub-ordinates and much of the authority is in the hand of middle and lower level managers. In US the individualism is preferred than the group working. US McDonald usually seek the Variety reduction in leadership, means that they use to remove the uncertainty by focusing on limited number of resources. This enables the US leader to control the poor performance of their subordinates. Moreover, the McDonald in US prefers to get experienced employees in their firm. The McDonald of US focus mainly on opportunities and less on problems and that is why the McDonald adopted diversification in US. The US manager working in China for McDonald are less ethnocentric rather the Chinese managers. The US manager believes on giving the authority form the top while giving the decision making and problem solving authority to the middle manager. The organizational process in US McDonald is that main authority is passed form the top while lower level mangers that directly interact with the customers solve the problems by them selves. They decide by themselves that how they have to treat people and what will be their next step in the future. Leadership in McDonald by China According to Charles W.L. Hill, Gareth R, Jones (2003) democracy trend in china is very low and that is the reason that leaders in china usually take care of their employees. In fact, China believes on high group orientation, where the leadership strategy works less rather team working is preferred more. We can say that in China paternalistic strategy work more in which the employees are considered as partners. Above all, the china though does not prefer leadership, but do not allow the MNE’s of international firms to lead the china employees in their showroom and firm. McDonald working in China can not adopt leadership strategy to lead the Chinese employees in their country and thus found many problems. Chinese usually adopt the variety amplifier strategy in which the uncertainty increases as the Chinese manager usually seek different alternatives, evaluate them for their further future use. Chinese leaders are the problem seeker; they believe that solving different problems within the firm can reduce uncertainty and increases efficiency while seeking the opportunities. They believe that solving the existing problems while seeking the new opportunities is more important fro the firm to work in the future. The individual behaviour in the McDonald working in China is different form that of USD. The individualism is not a belief of china rather they believe on group dynamics. The organizational behaviour in Chinese McDonald is basically depending on team working and on paternalistic in which a system works on define pattern. Authority and major decision are in the hand of top management, not believe on individualism rather work in teams or groups to solve different problems. While working in US and China, McDonald faces different problems as what type of leadership strategy they must adopt in order to achieve the goals and objectives. A detail theory and concept is provided that will suggest that what type of strategies the firm must adopt to deal with this leadership in these two countries. The very first section deals with contingency design theory and the other section will deals with structuration theory. Contingency theory Al Dunlap experience shows that different leadership strategies must be adopted by the firm when working at global level. The reason is that different countries culture and tradition highly affect the leadership in countries. Some people do not love to lead while some people love to get supervision form the top to know that what should be their next step. Therefore, contingency theory suggests that different leadership strategies should be adopted according to the country type. In this contingency theory, different concept and strategies are used and these will be the part of paper description. Fielder Model According to fielder contingency model, the group performance can be made better if the proper matching of leader style and situation is gained by the leader. This is actually a proper matching between the leader style and type of situation. Different situation required different styles of leadership. For this the leadership style is required to be identified according to the situation. To know that what actually the style should be Fielder developed last preferred co-worker questioner. This questioner will help the leader to know that either their employees are task oriented or relationship oriented. Fielder develops a 16 pager questioner in which he ranked question into two categories, task oriented and relationship oriented. These questioners are then circulated within the employees who than elaborate that what type of leadership strategies are required by the employees. Similarly the McDonald should adopt the similar way of questioner before operating in any country to know that what type of leadership strategy they want in the company, either want task oriented leadership or relationship oriented leadership. While working at global level, such mechanism won’t work as the number of employees is huge and taking view of each employee at each region would not be possible by the McDonald. Later fielder has developed three contingency dimensions which should be taken in consideration as these will define the key situational factors of any firm. These three contingency dimensions are given as Leader-member relations: this defines the relationship within the employees and their leaders. This dimension also shows the degree of confidence, respect and trust the members have on their leaders. Task structure: this dimension enables the leader to know that which job assignment should be structured and which should not be structured. Position power: this dimension describes the power of the leader such as power of hiring, firing, promoting and salary increase. According to fielder view, the more the better relation within the leader and the employee, better will be the structure of an organization. The stronger the position of the leader in the firm, the more he/she will has control over the employees. In matching leaders and situations, the fielder proposed that task-oriented leaders can work better in situation in which the circumstances enhance the task orientated nature of the leaders. For instance fro task oriented leaders, a better structured and manages system will work better. Moreover, the more the power given to the task-oriented leaders, the more they can achieve their task efficiently and quickly. Cognitive resource theory Fielder with his co-worker Joe Garcia re-conceptualized the above mentioned theory and suggests a new theory that is named as cognitive resource theory. According to this theory, they two suggest that the stress actually influence the situation and leadership quality but experience and intelligence can lower this stress that influences the leadership quality. Rationality actually affected by this stress because this affects the logical and analytical thinking of the leaders. But they also suggest that the intelligence and experience of the leaders can help them to minimize this stress. According to this concept they suggested three conclusions Directive behaviour result the good performance only when the high intelligence is linked with the low stress. In high-stress situation, the link between the job experience and performance become very positive and strong The intellectual abilities of the leaders when matched properly with the group performance, it leads to a low stress situation. Hersey and Blanchard’s situational theory This theory was developed by Paul Hersey and Ken Blanchard and is named as situational leadership theory. According to Stephen P. Robbins (2001) “Situation leadership is a contingency theory that focuses on the followers. Successful leadership is achieving by selecting the right leadership style, which Hersey and Blanchard argue is contingent on the level of followers, readiness.” Book: (organizational behaviour, 9th edition) p. 322. The main emphasis is on focusing the followers and readiness. Focusing on followers means that actually the leadership style depend on the followers, what type of leadership style they want. Readiness means the willingness and ability of the followers and people to accomplish any task. Hersey and Blanchard developed four leader behaviours that are from highly directive to highly laissez-faire. Whereas according to them the most effective behaviour always depends on the follower’s ability and motivation. According to these two studies, when the followers are unable and unwilling, then task-oriented behaviour and leadership is required that lead such followers to accomplish different tasks. But on the other hand, when the followers are willing to do work and are able than the relationship based leadership would be a better choice. Taking McDonald in consideration, the Chinese employees are very able and willing to work hard; therefore, the relationship strategy would be a better choice for the McDonald chain in the china. Where as in US the McDonald has to seek the types of employees in different regions as not all the employees and followers in US are able and willing to work hard. Leader-member exchange theory According to this Fred Luthans (2001), leader usually under pressure form different in-group and out0group. In0group followers are those which are preferred by the leader more, they are more close to the leaders as these people are more efficient. With time, the leaders come to know that which of the followers are more efficient, have competencies and are more able than other. This helps the leaders to form the in-group and out-group formation. In in-group followers the relationship of the leaders are different than out-group. The leaders are more friendly and dependent on the in-group and have relationship leadership. Where as, with the out-group the leaders usually adopt the task-oriented leadership behaviour. These in-group people have personalities and are efficient to provide higher performance, more output and extra working rather out-group people. This differentiation of eladers helps the leader to adopt different leadership strategies with these followers. This situation is mostly seen in different organization. Therefore, it is advisable for the McDonald to adopt such behaviour in US but when working in China, such behaviour is not advisable as this work on equality and hypocrisy is what Chinese hates. Therefore, it is advisable for the McDonald to achieve the in-group and out-group strategy in US but working in china, the McDonald has to take care of their employees and must provide efficient relation with all employees. Path Goal Theory Robert House path goal theory in contingency model provides an efficient way for the leaders. According to this theory, the leader must provide efficient assistant to the followers so that they can achieve the goals according to the firm objectives. The leaders must lead the followers efficiently to keep them on the track for achieving the particular goals. According to Robert House, there are four different styles of leadership that a leader must adopt Directive leaders: the strategy states that the leaders should direct their followers efficiently so that their sub-ordinates and followers can achieve the specified goals. They should provide them efficient schedule and guidelines to accomplish their tasks Supportive leader: according to this, the leaders must be supportive for their followers so that they can be friendly enough to support them at their difficulties. Participative leader: the leaders should take suggestions from the followers and sub-ordinates so that they together can make a better decision. Achievement –oriented leaders: these are the leaders that provide challenges to their followers and expect from them that they can provide the high level performance to these tasks. According to Robert, environmental contingency factors and subordinates contingency factors affect on these four leadership styles. The leaders can adopt different leader’s styles among these four styles according to the environmental factors and subordinated factors. The leader can choose different strategies among these according to the situation. A leader must have these styles that can be changed with time and situation. This white paper suggest that the McDonald top management should also adopt this strategy in which different leadership styles can be adopted with time and situation while working in china and America. Leader participate model Philips Kotler (2003) argued that leader participate model describes that leader should participate in any problem and decision making when required. It is advisable that the leaders can provide a set of rules and followers should adopt these rules. While major problem solving and decision making must be given to the middle level and lower level managers. This is suitable for the top management. The top management of McDonald are advised that they can provide the set of rules but rest of decision making and problem solving authority should be given to the managers so that they can decide accordingly. It is noticed that leaders are some time irrelevant in aiming decision making. Moreover, in globalization of firm, the top management can not understand the situation at each step and at each region. Structural theory Peter Ferdinand Drucker (2007) stated that structural theory describe that what type of structure a firm must adopt while working at global level. Either too many hierarchies would be a better choice, or a flat organization. A simple organizational structure is better than a bureaucracy. Team working would a better choice or the centralized decision making would be the better choice. Weber describes that when a firm working at global level than the bureaucracy would be the better choice. In bureaucracy, division of labour clearly defines rules and regulations and impersonal relation ship is used to from a clear structure. Therefore, McDonald is advised to adopt the bureaucracy structural model when it seeks that the employees are not able and unwilling to do work. In such situation bureaucracy is the better choice. While working in China, it is preferable to adopt team working organizational structure in which the leadership strategy must be based on relation ship. Different teams should be made at each department and level that together work for the organization. A complete structure of the organization defines that how much power should be given to each employee, how the conflict will be solved and who will solve this, what will be the matrix of the organization. Conclusion McDonald while working in China must consider their ethics and values and most adopt the strategies that they usually used. The firm while working in UIS or china should adopt leadership strategise according to the region in which they are working. The more they are according to the employees expectations, the more they will gain the satisfaction. The above mentioned four leader’s styles must be adopted by their leaders in order to provide sufficient leaders qualities with change in time and situation. References Charles W.L.

Engineering and Teton Dam Research Paper
python assignment help Table of Contents Introduction Teton Dam The Disaster Engineering Conclusion References Introduction Engineering is an important part of human existence. It may not be obvious at first but once the term engineering is defined as the manipulation of the natural environment through scientific means, its value is made more evident. Even in pre-historic times, ancient peoples rely on engineering feats to solve their problems. But in the modern world engineering has become an indispensable tool for human survival. The importance of engineering is linked to technology and innovation. Most of the time, innovation and technology is a positive development in the lives of people. But in certain occasions the inappropriate use of innovation and technology has brought more harm than good. In cases of man-made disasters, scientists, investigators and various stakeholders attempt to understand the engineering aspect of the application of the said technology. In this particular study the Teton Dam disaster is the object of inquiry. Before going any further it is important to reiterate that engineering innovation is a key to sustainable growth. Engineering innovation can be the main difference between the survival or the demise of a firm. Organizations that did not invest in the research, development and use of engineering innovation may find themselves in the brink of obsolescence or bankruptcy. Some of the more important companies in the last fifty years understood the importance of engineering innovation. There must be a continuous move forward when it comes to engineering innovation because according to experts in this field, it has become a survival imperative (Christensen, 2001). The same thing can be said about national governments and local communities. It is critically important for a city, state, and nation to look ahead and prepare for the inevitable. But more often than not, engineering innovation is the by-product of a need to solve a particular problem. In the case of the State of Idaho and the town of Rexburg, engineering innovation was needed to deal with the growing needs of an expanding township. In the latter part of the 19th century, settlers began to pour into the area near Idaho falls because of the discovery of gold (McDonald, 2006, p.9). One of the locations chosen to build a town to support the gold prospecting activities in the said region is Rexburg. For many decades the local residents contributed to the success of the area and agriculture became the region’s lifeblood (McDonald, 2006, p.9). Get your 100% original paper on any topic done in as little as 3 hours Learn More It did not take long before the region became known for the abundant harvest of wheat, sugar beets, and potatoes (McDonald, 2006, p.9). But with the success of the settlement also comes the inevitable problems related to sustainability. Thus, there came a time when the need for a dam was deemed a necessity. Teton Dam In 1964 the U.S. Congress approved the construction of the Teton Dam on the Teton River located in the southeast portion of Idaho (Williamson, 1997, p. 31). The purpose of the dam was for the benefit of the residents living in the area. The goal was to complete an engineering feat that would help control the chronic flooding as well as to provide irrigation and recreational facilities for the people living in the area. The construction of the said dam was started in 1972. But the necessary preparation was made years before the first construction material was brought to the site. When the dam was completed the people marveled at the fact that the structure was 305 feet high and the base was almost 1,700 feet thick (Williamson, 1997). After the completion of the project the homeowners and farmers placed their trust on the Teton Dam and as a result many of them cancelled their flood insurance (Williamson, 1997, p. 311). They were confident that the presence of the dam has eliminated the possibility of further flooding. But they were mistaken. A competent engineer should have been contracted by the residents to determine if the Teton Dam was impervious to leaks and other structural problems that could bring about the destruction of dam. They needed to find out if the dam can protect life and property. The Disaster The dam was designed to hold significant amounts of water. It would require massive and impervious structure to contain the potential energy contained in the daily impounding of free-flowing water from the Teton River. Seepage, cracks and other minor imperfections must be corrected because these insignificant failures can be multiplied after the passage of time. In the case of the Teton Dam, the engineers and workers were unable to fix the problems in time. The cracks became unmanageable until it resulted in the total destruction of the said dam. We will write a custom Research Paper on Engineering and Teton Dam specifically for you! Get your first paper with 15% OFF Learn More There are three main reasons why the dam failed. First, there was an urgent need to build a dam for the sake of the community that lives nearby. It can be argued that the urgency forced many to shortcut the process. In other words engineers, surveyors, politicians and other stakeholders were pressed for time to complete the dam. The second major reason is the failure of the government agency and the surveying team to properly acknowledge the importance of the geological features of the Teton River. Subsequent investigations would reveal that the dam was constructed in an area composed mostly of volcanic rocks such as rhyolite. It is a type of rock that is lightweight and easily fractured (Ellingwood

Chapter 1 – Sociology in the Real World: Society’s Impact on YouThe sociological perspective involves analyzing human behavior within its broader social context. In other words, sociologists look at how the large-scale social structure impacts our lives. Your assignment is to examine your life using the sociological perspective. Choose three macro-level forces that have influenced your life. Use examples from your life to help illustrate each concept. For example, the neighborhood where you grew up plays an important part in shaping your behavior. Think about how the house you lived in, your neighbors, or even the town influenced your life. I am looking for you to accurately apply terms from the textbook in your paper to demonstrate your understanding of the sociological concepts. Here are some macro-level factors as suggestions (you may use others): governmentreligioneconomyfamily (nuclear family and/or extended family)friendseducationculturemediaorganized extracurricular activities (soccer, band, ballet, gymnastics, mock trial, etc.)neighborhoodwork (volunteer work, job, unpaid responsibilities)-use your own word please and DO NOT COPY ANYTHING ON LINE!

Please Use easy grammar and you you are all wodd to answer all these questions.-must be complete by complete sentences and one question lease 5 sentences!-if you need books to answer the questions I will sensed to you. -use easy grammar and easy to understand! Please———————————————————————Next, read and respond to at least two other students’ posts.1.The three macro-levels that influenced me throughout my life would have to be: religion, neighborhood and work. Religion as always been apart of my life, whether I wanted it to be or not. My family would attend mass every Sunday, participate in winter shelters and volunteer our summers to help raise money during the annual fair. Although I dreaded it growing up (like any kid I would imagine) it did teach me meaningful lessons that I still believe in today. The church taught me to be considerate to others, to treat as you would want to be treated and to be grateful for life itself and what it has to offer. Macro-levels are zooming out and looking at larger social structures and to see how it affects smaller groups and individuals. This is how religion affected me. I grew up in a not so nice neighborhood in LA. As Adriana Hernandez said in her writing, it wasn’t always so hipster. Using macro-level thinking I can now understand why I am the way I am. Where my home and my school were, there was a lot of violence and tension. I wasn’t scared of the place, because it was my home but I learned how to get by. I learned if I mind my own business, keep my head down and do what I had to do ill be fine. And it was true for me. My surroundings and the people in it taught me exactly what not to do; the ones that were getting into trouble were my guidelines onto how to stay out of it. I got my first job fairly young I was a sophomore in high school. Being so young people might have not taken me seriously at first but it didn’t matter to me because I used what I had learned from religion and my past neighborhood. But having a job teaches you another wide range of traits to adopt as well. It teaches you how to be fast, how to be efficient and how to time manage.2.Viewing the society from the point of a social analyst, I believe my friends has an influence on who I am today. Me and my best friends have known each other in junior year of high school and we remained best friends ever since. Examine it from the micro- level, I realize the personalities traits have similarities among us, for instance we all like to keep to ourselves a lot of times and just do our own things. We joined together to hang out and chat once in a while when we feel to need to either express ourselves and be each other’s psychologist and solving what bothering each other. Examining it from a macro perspective, the whole school is divided up in a similar fashion and even within the ‘Chinese group’ there are many sub-groups that are divided geographically.Culture also have a lot to do with how I view myself and society at large. Thinking sociologically, I have experience the culture shock when I first arrived in U.S. when I was 11 years old, although I wasn’t firmly set in Chinese culture, still I spent a great portion of my childhood growing up in it and everything in America seems foreign to me. American culture focus more on independence for which I believe is a great way to learn the necessary social skills. I have to not just deal with the language adaptability, but also with the way how people think and behave. This new way to see the ‘new world’ helped me to see my old culture objectively and learn to adapt to the new culture with less heartache.Media also played an important part in my teenager years mainly because I spent many hours watching television. This way to spent time off from school almost become my entire hobby since I lack playmates or friends that are also interested in outdoor activities. WWE become my favorite thing to watch on TV, Sci-Fi channel is also one of my favorite. By watching these shows and movies, I achieved a state called collective effervescence because I joined the people in the arena through TV. I felt I belong in that particular group called WWE fans and felt extremely
