What Is Social Justice To Me?, Michal Felan Dec 2019

What Is Social Justice To Me?, Michal Felan

Social Justice Class Papers

What is social justice? Okay, wow what a loaded question. I think that social justice can be a little different for everyone. It all depends on how you were raised and the people you are surrounded with. We as humans get a lot of our ideas from others, and we then form our own ideas based off those ideas. Social justice has many different meanings for me alone, much less the entire world. I think that there is an endless number of definitions. It is hard to know where to begin. I believe that social justice includes a wide variety ...


What Is Social Justice?, Jeremy Boone Dec 2019

What Is Social Justice?, Jeremy Boone

Social Justice Class Papers

What is social justice is a very broad question to ask anybody, even a student in a social justice class. In my opinion, social justice has been the latest discussion in today’s society due to the crime rate, inequality in race and gender, and the hatred in the streets. Some people may consider that this is the main root of the definition of social justice. In my opinion, the definition of social justice is the foundation for a stable and safe community. It should reflect the characteristics of each person showing that a human has values that should be ...

Leadership Theories And United States Demographic Shifts: Responsiveness In The Workplace, Sherry H. Latten, Jonathan Perez Dec 2019

Leadership Theories And United States Demographic Shifts: Responsiveness In The Workplace, Sherry H. Latten, Jonathan Perez

Journal of Research Initiatives

As the United States becomes increasingly more diverse, it is imperative that organizations consider the implications of their leadership pipeline. Given the differences that can exist by social identity groups in experiences, values, interests, and communications, it raises a question about the responsiveness of current leadership theories to the changing demographics. This article explores the responsiveness of transformational leadership, authentic leadership, and leader-member exchange (LMX) theory to the demographic changes as a means of helping organizations consider how existing leadership norms and theories need to be expanded to encompass the future population of leaders across race, sex, and age.

Social Justice Credo, Erica Wilmath Dec 2019

Social Justice Credo, Erica Wilmath

Social Justice Class Papers

There is this infamous question that has dangled over our heads for hundreds of years, starting back to B.C. The question is simple but complex at the same time, what is social justice, and how does it have anything to do with me? I myself have thought this question long before taking this course. I had no clue the impact injustice had on me nor the calling I had to make a difference.

Throughout our day to day lives, especially when we are younger, social justice or even justice alone isn't a part of our vocab or daily ...

Acts Of The Holy Spirit In Leadership: A Case For Holy Leadership In The Church, Jeffrey James Boone Sr Dec 2019

Acts Of The Holy Spirit In Leadership: A Case For Holy Leadership In The Church, Jeffrey James Boone Sr

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of the research is to remove worldly leadership from, Abundant Life Community Christian Church (ALCCC), and to replace it with a biblical leadership model. Biblical leadership is spiritual and holy. Biblical leadership is predicated upon Jesus Christ's leadership example and teachings. The first-century Apostles’ leadership modeled the words and works of Jesus Christ. The problem of secular leadership at ALCCC is the cause of stagnation and declination of the church. Worldly leadership at ALCCC is the root cause of inefficiency, ineffectiveness, in-house fighting, strife, division, rivalry, preeminence, predominance, lack of humility, outreach neglect, evangelism neglect, and unproductivity ...


Millennial Perceptions Of Leadership As An Influential Factor In Nursing Retention: A Phenomenological Study, M'Lyn Spinks Nov 2019

Millennial Perceptions Of Leadership As An Influential Factor In Nursing Retention: A Phenomenological Study, M'Lyn Spinks

Doctorate of Nursing Science Dissertations

For years, stakeholders in nursing have anticipated the retirement of the baby-boomer nursing workforce while heralding it as a major factor in a persistent global nursing shortage (American Association of Colleges of Nursing [AACN], 2017). Nursing shortages, known to have a negative impact on patient safety and outcomes, call for strategies to alleviate, if not resolve, issues of retention (Aiken et al., 2017). Authentic leadership, an identified retention factor among professional nurses and associated with improved patient outcomes, has the potential to provide the theoretical support needed to better inform millennial nursing leadership training and development. This phenomenological study explored ...

An Exploration Of Contextual Factors Of Weight-Based Discrimination Against Business Leaders, Ellen Hermann Lynch Nov 2019

An Exploration Of Contextual Factors Of Weight-Based Discrimination Against Business Leaders, Ellen Hermann Lynch

Dissertations

Two-thirds of the adult population of the United States are considered overweight (Ogden, Carroll, Kit, & Flegal, 2013) and are susceptible to weight-based discrimination in the workplace (Rudolph, Wells, Weller, & Baltes, 2009). The weight-based discrimination experienced by business leaders is relatively unknown. The present research used Leader Categorization Theory (Lord & Maher, 1991) as a framework to examine the extent to which a business leader’s weight is associated with their perceived leadership qualities and effectiveness in two studies. The first study isolated the relationship between the base rate of weight in an organization and the assumed weight of the COO by ...


The Relative Importance Of Transformational Leadership And Contingent Reward On Satisfaction With Supervision In Nonprofit And For-Profit Organizations, Agnieszka Kwapisz, F. William Brown, Scott Bryant, Robyn Chupka, Terry Profota Nov 2019

The Relative Importance Of Transformational Leadership And Contingent Reward On Satisfaction With Supervision In Nonprofit And For-Profit Organizations, Agnieszka Kwapisz, F. William Brown, Scott Bryant, Robyn Chupka, Terry Profota

Journal of International & Interdisciplinary Business Research

We study the relationships and intervening mechanism between leaders’ transformational and contingent reward behaviors and the raters’ satisfaction with their supervision in the context of nonprofit and for-profit management settings in the United States. The results show that regardless of the context, transformational leadership on the part of the manager relates positively to the raters’ satisfaction with supervision and that this relationship is stronger in nonprofit organizations. Our results also provide evidence for the differential impact of contingent reward in for-profit and nonprofit settings. In the for-profit context, the relationship between contingent reward and satisfaction with supervision is negative while ...

Promoting Creativity In The Cooperative Work Environment: A Case Study Of The Lacol Cooperative, Teresa Morlà-Folch, Mar Joanpere-Foraster, Eleni Papaoikonomou

The Qualitative Report

Previous research has examined organizational factors that could facilitate or limit creativity also indicating that although cooperatives can be seen as innovative business formats, they are also considered slow growth models because of their organizational characteristics. In this study we aim to explore the processes, practices, and other organizational characteristics that define the creative dynamics in cooperatives. In this way, our goals are (a) to understand how the promotion of the creativity is carried out in the cooperative workplace and (b) to study the factors that can accelerate the development of a more positive climate for creativity, boosting transformative elements ...

A mixed methods approach of both quantitative and qualitative research was applied to the congregation at Greenhouse ...
