Seminar 2! Behavioral Actions!

I want to portray a professional image in my field of work, I think by doing this it will set me up for success, and open opportunities for me that would not have presented them otherwise. I want a to display a professional image, not only in the way I look but in the way I act, talk, and to show knowledge in my line of work on the product we sell, our safety record, and professionalism. In my field of work, I speak to a lot of customers, ranging from CEO to supervisors. Throughout my experience in this field I have learned to dress appropriately, talk professionally, and present my knowledge in a way to insure my company and I are capable of doing the job but not too show that my company and I are the only ones who know what is going on. My dress code at work can be jeans, and collared shirt when I am in our branch office, khakis, with nice dress shirt when I visit other locations, suit or dress slacks with company shirt when I am at corporate office. When I am in the field or on customer sites, I will have to have the proper PPE on. I try to make sure when I schedule customer site walk through, on site visits, or in house meetings I dress appropriately with the proper attire. This shows professionalism, and suitable manner for the job duty applied. I try my hardest to make sure I am making myself look appropriate in the customer’s eyes and I try to always make sense and sound professional while speaking.
Some behavioral actions that are inappropriate in my work field are aggression, manipulation, poor listening, not keeping eye contact, and bad manners. I believe these are all important items to not do in any field of work but especially mine. If you are aggressive, have bad manners, or don’t listen to your customer, the customer may not want your company to do the task at hand. I think it is important to not manipulate…...

Humanized Urbanism - [Human Behavior in Public Spaces in a Contemporary City] - a Action Methodology

...20th International Seminar on Urban Form Conference Sub-Theme Pushing the Edge – New technologies and new techniques Title: Humanized Urbanism - [Human behavior in public spaces in a contemporary city] - A action methodology Abstract As a social being, human being interacts with everything around him, promoting exchanges between various objects that surround it and a range of environments that populate their feelings, cognitions and expectations. Human being houses in the entire world are a reflection of socio-cultural values of time and region. When human being builds houses, builds a physical and a psychological environment. However, the built environment is becoming increasingly inappropriate to the context of life.

...Behavior Change Summary My behavior change project was to get more sleep at night. The goal of my behavior change plan was to get at least seven or eight hours of sleep and to determine the amount of sleep that was best for my body. I wanted to feel energized when I woke up in the morning, and to continue that feeling throughout the day. My plan was to have set times that I would need to be in bed by. I began with the amount of sleep I was currently getting each night, which was only about four or five hours. I then increased the amount of sleep I was getting by a half hour, and continued to get that amount of sleep for a week, until I increased the amount by another half hour. I repeated this process each week until I received eight hours of sleep per night. I was not to take any naps during the day if I did not receive the planned amount of sleep that night. The reason for this type of plan was because I knew I would not be able to just increase the amount of sleep to eight hours right off the bat. I needed to gradually get my body used to that kind of sleep each night. I feel that in a sense I did accomplish my goal. Although I am not at exactly eight hours of sleep per night, I have found the number of hours of sleep each night that my body needs to feel rejuvenated. I have found that eight hours of sleep each night is too much for my body. I wake up feeling way too tired. However, when I was at weeks three, four, and five, I woke up feeling awake and energized and it......

...his or her actions and behaviors depending on the scenario or the type of situation at hand. Values are established and implanted in the early stages of life, but each individual person interprets his or her own values differently, and their actions and behaviors show how values are being perceived and displayed by the individual. People act off of their individual values that are embedded within them, and the actions and behaviors of individuals are a mere image reflection of his or her personal values.

Disciplinary Action

...THE IMPACT OF DISCIPLINARY ACTION IN THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF MARINE STUDENTS OF UNIVERSITY OF CAGAYAN VALLEY THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND: Introduction: Student discipline is an issue that has been and continues to remain an issue in school settings. Managing classroom discipline is an obstacle that impedes the academic performance of some students. Because all students, even those students who are disruptive in the classroom, are required to be assessed on grade level, it is imperative that they are educated just as the remainder of the student population. Teachers have the difficult task of educating students. Educating students encompasses many factors in addition to the delivery of content. Other responsibilities of a teacher include such tasks maintaining accurate records, ensuring that modifications are applied to students with special needs, sustaining contact with parents, and employing instructional and management strategies consistent with campus and district initiatives (Wolford, McGee, & Ritchey, 1996). In conjunction with all of these expectations, managing student discipline is yet another requirement of teachers. In the event of student misbehavior, an appropriate consequence is assigned to combat the inappropriate conduct. As the degree or frequency of the undesired conduct increases, the severity of the behavior intervention escalates. Historically, combating student misconduct has resulted in punitive measures that remove the student from the......

Analyze the nature and find the relationship between them. *) Definition of motivation: Internal and external factors that stimulate desire and energy in people to be continually interested and committed to a job, role or subject, or to make an effort to attain a goal. Motivation results from the interaction of both conscious and unconscious factors such as the (1) intensity of desire or need, (2) incentive or reward value of the goal, and (3) expectations of the individual and of his or her peers. *) Definition of Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Theory. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in 1943. This theory is one of the most popular theories of motivation. It presents the idea that human actions are directed toward goal attainment. Maslow proposed that motivation is a function of five basic needs and it has often been represented in a hierarchical pyramid with five levels. Five needs are arranged in the hierarchy shown in Figure 8-1. (1) Physiological. Most basic needs (includes air, food, water, sex, sleep, other factors towards homeostasis, etc.) (2) Safety.

Reasoned Action

...consumers’ behavioral intentions? (Use the Theory of Reasoned Action to guide your thinking and your answer.) This is a review and application question with a web exercise. Fishbein and Ajzen’s Theory of Reasoned Action is a powerful model for analyzing and understanding the factors that influence voluntary, overt behaviors. Students need to understand the basic components of the model and the logic that underlies their interrelationships. Exhibit 6.6 in the text clearly presents the major components of the model and their interrelationships. Students should be able to discuss these "flows of influence." The theory of reasoned action identifies two main influences on behavioral intentions--Aact and SN that is attitudes toward the action and subjective norms. Different promotional strategies, such as those used by The Gap, can try to change consumers’ attitudes and/or their subjective norms. For instance, if the weak BI is due to negative attitudes toward purchasing clothing from The Gap, advertising needs to focus on the specific negative beliefs about the consequences of buying and using the product. Alternatively, The Gap could try to use social influences to impact subjective norms by communicating social acceptability by wearing clothing from The Gap. 7. Use the example of “The Gap” to distinguish between the multi-attribute attitude model and the theory of reasoned action. How could each model contribute to the development of......
