Case Analysis: Aline DeNeuve
The case upholds Aline DeNeuve’s conversations with some of the employees of her workplace regarding the relevancy of taking a business retreat, and what expectations and outcomes can come out of it. After going through the talks with her employees, it can be clearly stated that the management system of the firm is broken down as the low morale and attitudes of the staff are deeply shocking. This mainly caused due to perception error among the employees and their higher ups.
Heather, one of the employees, showed her resentment towards her supervisor because of not promoting her. She attributed his boss’s decision directly to the notion that he doesn’t like foreigners (Heather is Chinese) and completely ignored the fact that she has been taking a large number of sick leaves. From Heather’s point of view taking a three day retreat won’t actually solve this anti-social attitude among the employees within the organization.
As for Jack, the reason he doesn’t want to attend the retreat is also for not getting a promotion to the director post. He stated that he didn’t get the promotion because of himself being black. Also he pointed out to increase the security by investing the money that was financed for the retreat as he accused the staffs for taking out a lot of office supplies. He also emphasized on launching a socialization program in order to increase workplace relationship.
Another employee, named June, complained about her work being too stressful. She also said that the senior management didn’t pay notice to her demand of hiring more service representatives which will ease her work. She also complained regarding the customers of not using their common sense and calling for every tiny bit of issues they are having. These problems are attributing to her depressed and stressed life and also ruining her marriage.

As for Alison, who…...

Case of Aline Deneuve

...Case of Aline DeNeuve This case Aline DeNeuve is written by Alvin Turner, from St. Catharine’s, Ontario, Canada. There are a lot of issues in this case. Aline talked with five random employees to secure their views on having another retreat and to take their opinion how effective was the previous retreat. The first employee she talked with was Heather. The main issue over here is mostly stereotypical and racial discrimination. Heather told she doesn’t like retreats. She also said that she was ignored to give a promotion six months ago by her supervisor Jack as she was Chinese, and that her supervisor doesn’t like foreigners. She also stated that the three day retreat held once a year won’t solve the anti-social atmosphere between the employees. This problem occurred because Heather was upset with Jack for the reason she was not promoted by him. Categorization is an OB concept which falls under stereotyping. This is a comparison process for social identity, and that comparison begins by categorizing people into different groups. Heather thought she was categorized by her supervisor Jack as she was from China. Homogenization is another OB concept that falls under stereotyping. It is a simplified process of comparing people in various groups. Here people tends to think that, people with in a group are very much similar to each other despite the fact that everyone is an individual and have their own different characteristics. Heather thought that jack was homogenization......

Sex and Marriage

...Sex and Marriage “Sex is a big question mark. It is something people will always talk about”-Catherine Deneuve. Sex, in its basic form, is a means of survival. It is necessary in order for a species, like the human race, to reproduce and therefore will always be a topic of thought and discussion. The need and use of sex both in and out of marriage is determined and manipulated by genetic code. Genes have a way of working to either sabotage or safe-guard a relationship. Infidelity Marriage and sex go hand-in-hand and unfortunately infidelity often is part of that union. Both men and women cheat, but for very different reasons. It is these differences that contribute to the variances between men and women and their success or failure in relationships. Men and the Infidelity Gene Why do men cheat? The answer is simple: Reproductive output increases with the increase in sexual partners (Glass, 2000). There is an innate biological need to reproduce in order to pass on a man’s genetics to the next generation. Through the contract of marriage, promises are made to remain monogamous. This contract does not diminish the man’s genetic instinct to reproduce and therefore, depending on the man’s level of commitment and willpower, may result in infidelity. Women and the Infidelity Gene Why do women cheat? Again the answer goes back to the basics. Infidelity may be an opportunity to upgrade the genes of their offspring or find a more committed mate (Glass, &......

Alines Journey

...story which ‘Alines Journey’ deals with. In ‘Alines Journey’ we follow the escape of young Aline, who is also the narrator, and her family from Haiti to the Miami, America. Aline is also the main character of the story, and from the start her father gives her high hopes of leaving a poor Haiti and going to a safe and nice America, even though she feels a bit nervous and sad leaving her home as we see in this extract: “Sometimes when it rains, our rooms get flooded and we must go inlands to escape the water. [..]’ Imagine Aline. Now when it rains we can stay inside our house in Miami. No more waiting for the flood waters to die down before returning to our beds.’“ (p. 12 ll. 5-10) The family is forced to leave Haiti because of Aline’s father’s involvement in anti-government meetings and in perpetuation of these, death threats from a powerful man of the government (p.16). Aline though is not aware of this from the beginning, and feels sad, that she has to leave her home and friends behind. Especially she feels hurt that she cannot say goodbye to her friends (p. 13). This is an example of Alines small-girl innocence, which she upholds throughout the story. As a reader it is not very hard to see through the story and figure out what is happening, but Aline herself is in the beginning more or less oblivious of the real situation, only tagging along to her parents, and doing what she is told and referencing it to the reader with a profound straightforwardness. But Alines......

Aline’s Journey

...Aline’s Journey The story Aline’s Journey is a story about Aline and her family’s Journey form Haiti to Florida and the things she experience when and after they get caught by the police. I think that Aline is about 7 years old she lives with her mom,dad and little brother on Haiti close to the sea. Aline appears to be a very innocent and curious girl. She is to young to understand whats really going on and when her dad says that they have to leave she ask “who will look after our house when we’re gone” which confirms her curiosity. She loves to play and be around her friends and she knows exactly who's best at the different games. She also cares a lot about her family. She seems to have a very close relationship to her dad and I think that she looks up to him as a role model as well. The things Aline experience are horrible and I don't think that any one could go trough what she did without being influenced by it. Particularly for a girl in her age who lives a quiet and calm life with no worries it must has been a shockingly experience. Alines development is obvious. On page 16 last stanza where she says”wondering how Papa is doing, how long he can survive without food and how long we can last without freedom” It is a hole new girl we meet compared to how she thinks in the beginning of the story. She goes from being a uncomprehending child to obtain some really serious aspects in life. What the family went trough must be what we prefer to call the American nightmare. I...

Alines Journey

...the rest of the family and I think the author wants to tell us about changes in life in this short story. The story about Aline and her family starts in their poor and lousy house in Haiti, but then the father takes the sudden decision and they are sailing in a small sailboat to Bahamas where they are transferred over to a bigger motorboat which are sailing the rest of the way to Miami. Wherever the family are we are hearing the story about them from Alines perspective that tells us that Aline is the 1st narrator. It is told from Aline because she is the main character. Aline is a little girl maybe at the age of 10 or something, she live a poor and non-material life in Haiti with her closest family and friends and I do not think that Aline have the age to understand the things and the situation around her completely. Aline do not really see the problem of living in Haiti and therefore she does not really understand the fast decision. “For the trip, I pick out my favourite light blue dress” (p. 13, ll. 1) as we see in the text there is one special things that Aline really cares about and it is her blue dress, which is a symbol of hope. The blue dress is not the only thing Aline care about, she also cares a lot about her family and want them all to be together and feel well. “I miss Manman being well” (p. 15, ll. 34-35) Manman is Alines mother and she is a good and loving mother who cares about their children and wants the best for them....
