Unit 8 DB: Equal Pay for Equal Work (HRM307)
Please watch the video in the “Readings and Resources” section above on equal pay and share your views on whether we have an equal pay problem in the U.S. and why or why not? Have you or anyone close to you ever experienced gender pay inequality on the job? If yes, please explain.
Unit 8.1 Discussion: Leadership (HRM335)
Consider a highly visible businessperson in a leadership position. Consider a highly visible leader whose styles/traits fit in terms of what we have learned from our reading.
- What characteristics have made this person successful?
- Since all leaders encounter dissension at some point, what characteristics have helped this person handle conflict and what characteristics have hindered him/her?
- How could the latter be addressed effectively?
Provide examples and cite all resources.
To recap, focus on applying the various leadership styles to your real-world example instead of providing an assessment of leadership qualities and achievement.
Final Discussion: Course Reflection (HRM335)
After having the opportunity to complete the course, what would you change and why? What topic particularly caught your interest and what do you want to know more about? Last, but not least, if you could share with the next class one piece of advice about this class, what would it be? Please note that this pertains to the class, the materials, flow/organization, etc.
Thank you and good luck on your educational journey!
