Smart Responses to Negative Emotions at Work

This is a solution of Smart Responses to Negative Emotions at Work in which we discuss causes of these depressing emotions. Introduction Negative emotions have a way of piling up in many organizations. Surprisingly, most employees fail to take notice until when it is too late. Some of the causes of these depressing emotions include personal stress, work stress, unfair treatment at the workplace or sometimes they are related to drug and substance abuse. If not properly managed, negative emotions can disrupt workflow, violence incidences can occur, and some employees can end up losing their jobs. In a worst case scenario, some companies can even be forced to suspend their operations. Most people tend to quell negative emotions with equally negative ones. What they do not know is that negativity and negativity only breed more negativity. There exist better and more productive ways of dealing with this problem. The first step is watching out for the warning signs that indicate the underlying negative emotions. These kinds of feelings do not just blow over the roof in a single day. They build up bit by bit. If the management is keen enough, then they will surely take notice. Some of the signs that should raise a red flag include: Employees putting...

Performance Enhancement in Doping Assignment

Performance Enhancement in Doping Assignment DOPING AS A SPIRIT OF SPORT: PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT VS. ILLICIT USE As per the most commonly accepted regulation of sports, the use of drugs is not allowed. However, it is we who decide upon the rules. The question of deception would not come into play if doping were legalized. The World Anti-Doping Agency code considers a drug to be not legal in case it artificially enhances the abilities of users, can have adverse side-effects or be in breach of the ‘‘spirit of sport’’ (WADA, 2003). The definition of this spirit as given by them is (WADA, 2003) the celebration of the human spirit, body, and mind, comprising of the following values: ethics, fair play and honesty health excellence in performance character and education fun and joy teamwork dedication and commitment respect for rules and laws respect for self and other participants courage community and solidarity Is the consensus that unrestricted and legalized usage of performance enhancing substances be in breach of the idea of this ‘‘spirit’’? Can we contend that such rules would benefit the sports? The competition between humans has a significant difference from the sports involving animals like horse or dog races. The objective in these races is to find out who is...

Drug Regulation in Australian Sport Assignment

Drug Regulation in Australian Sport Assignment DRUG REGULATION IN AUSTRALIAN SPORT The International Olympic Committee (IOC) applied its anti-doping regulations and policies in the 1970s. However, their limited focus and erratic endorsement by international sport authorities made them only marginally effective (Hunt, 2007). The doping scandals that arose in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and the 1998 Tour de France prompted the IOC out of its languid approach to its anti-doping policies. The evidence given by such events left no doubts towards rampant doping prevalent in professional sports (Hanstad et al., 2008). The Committee was prompted into action and established an international agency for global enforcement of anti-doping code and bring some uniformity to to the high stakes playing-field of international sports (Pampel, 2007). WADA was setup in 1999 (Hanstad et al., 2008), with the objective of (1) testing for doping amongst athletes,(2) investigating allegations of use, possession or trafficking, (3) establishment of laws in case of breach of the code, and (4) spread the benefits of drug-free sport, and ‘promote fairness and equality for all’ (Pound, 2006). WADA assumed the central role in the drugs-in-sport(DIS) regulatory field, and now is perhaps the single most influential factor establishment of anti-doping agendas. The ACG adopted the World Anti-Doping Code in 2004,...

International Labor Mobility and its Effects on Countries

International Labor Mobility and its Effects on Countries International labor mobility and its effects on countries International labor mobility defines the mobility of the workforce among the geographical locations or occupations between the several countries. The major reason for the international labor mobility is the difference in resources possessed by the two countries due to which mobility gets impacted. In United States there are several regulations which prevails in order to curb the high mobility and to provide maximum opportunities to the local workforce such as minimum wages law, absence of right to work, binding ties to a geographic location and government regulations to the industry such as license (Krugman, 2009). All these efforts & policies laid down by United States helps in order to maintain the adequate number of workers so that at any point of time there are no excess numbers of work forces or lack of workforce in order to handle the jobs being available in United States. Looking into Indian context for the international labor mobility there are several barriers which does not allow workers to become mobile includes high availability of the workers in local region, differences in qualification at regional level and lack of standards for vocations skills which does not qualifies the unskilled...
