Please complete the following:

Never forget that the most important member of your team is you. You must behave as a team player—in Joe’s words, “lead from ahead, not above.” To foster collaboration and success within your team, you need to lead by example and be a member of your own team. Don’t ask your team members to do things you wouldn’t do yourself. This helps break down barriers between team members and leaders and creates a sense of teamwork. This week, you see examples of how other leaders apply these principles to their own teams. Identify someone in your professional work life (past or current) who leads by example. Describe their specific actions and the impact that those specific actions and their leadership has on others.

When we talk about assets we may think of money, buildings, people, or supplies, but in healthcare, the asset that is growing in volume and importance, is data.  In Rick Smolan’s book The Human Face of Big Data, two statements relate to our discussion this week and the course in general.

“Every two days, mankind creates as much information as it did from the dawn of civilization until 2003. The amount of information that an average person is exposed to in a day is the same as a person from the 15th century was exposed to in his lifetime (Smolan, 2012).”

After reading the above information from Smolan’s book, think about the amount of data you generate or interface with daily. Compile a list of all the data point interactions and trace where the information originates and eventually ends. For example, if you use your credit card, where does the transaction information go and how is it used.  Are you concerned about the explosion of data and your personal information? Why or why not?

This what I have so far: 

My strategic goal is to influence the intrinsic and the extrinsic motivation throughout the Human Resource Community so that I can provide a reliable outlook.  Becoming a Naval Officer been a goal of mine from the beginning of my career.  I have had exceptional Officers who challenged me and molded me to be the sailor I am today because of their leadership attributes. Exceeding my expectations led to me being promoted meritoriously to 3rd, 2nd, and 1st Class Petty Officer at three different commands.  I have so much to offer and it is important that I step out on faith and share the benefit of my experience with others who are trying to find their way.  I knew during my recruiting tour how important Human Resource was both inside and outside of the Navy.  The knowledge and skills I retained allowed me to become Junior Sailor of the Year.  This pushed me to complete my Masters in Human Resource Management.  This is the very reason why I chose your formidable designation to hone my capabilities to become not just a successful Officer, but one who exudes confidence in arming her sailors with the right amount of leadership, care, and knowledge. I believe that I possess the ethical values and capabilities to become a Human Resource Officer. I hope that you give me the great honour of selecting me into your program. With my excellent background, I can and I will become the Officer that the Navy needs!

There are many microloans out there that many small businesses use to keep their company going, need to remodel, or start a business. The microloan’s interest rate ranges from two to eighteen percent, excluding origination and bad debt recovery fees. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to start a small business at such a low-interest rate and get the money quickly. There are a few downsides to having a microloan, is a short-which term payment plan, with certain restrictions, and a loan of a small amount of money. For instance, the business owner can only borrow a maximum of fifty thousand dollars with a short-term payment of 12 months. Also, the bank will only loan money to the business owner for a specific reason is the main restriction of the loan. The small business works hard to keep the business going and make the most profit in order to pay the loan back quickly as possible. The credit card seems a similar idea but requires a certain number of credit scores, loan amount, and a very high-interest rate between twenty-one to twenty-nine percent rate. There are low-interest rate credit cards with small amounts of credit lines for people to use if getting out of debt (Maitra et al., 2017).

The Bible teaches us that it is important to help one another with whatever we need: Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away (Matthew 5:42, King James Version, 2022/2017). The bank should be able to help anyone that will be willing to pay the money back during the loan period. Business owners need to understand that the bank is in charge of the money and owns part of the business until it is fully paid back. One of the unique Bible verses points out to all of us: The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7, King James Version, 2022/2017). The debt should be paid off soon as possible, and avoid borrowing money frequently. The business owner should have self-control with the money and be able to manage money properly every day.

Discussions: A great place to work doesn’t happen by chance. Leaders and employees must have the conscious intention of creating a workplace with positive energy. Leaders must establish workplace boundaries to deter the barriers that can damage a positive workplace culture. The individual employee also has a responsibility to engage in self-assessment, as well as identify ways to enhance one’s positive self-image.
