Ten Leadership Theories
1. The Great Man Theory – Great Leaders are Born, not Made.
2. The Trait Theory of Leadership – Ideal Characteristics for Leaders.
3. The Skills Theory of Leadership – Ideal Technical, Personal and Conceptual Skills for Managers and Leaders.
4. The Style Theories of Leadership – e.g Leadership Continuum, Managerial Grid.
5. The Situational Leadership Theory – There is no-one-size-fits-all-model, the leader must adapt.
6. The Contingency Theory - There is no-one-size-fits-all-model, choose an appropriate leader.

The mind/body problem is one that consists of the inconsistent tetrad, which states that: 1. the human body is a material thing, 2. the human mind is a spiritual thing, 3. mind and body causally interact, and 4. spirit and matter do not causally interact. The Identity Theory attempts to solve this problem by denying number 2. It is a materialists’ theory which claims that the human mind is not a spiritual, but a physical thing. The theory claims that states and processes of the mind are identical to states and processes of the brain.” Smart says that experiences such as pain, seeing something, or having a mental image are not just correlated with events that take place in the brain,...

Theories of International Trade & the Multinational Enterprise
Theories of International Trade & the Multinational Enterprise
International trade is the exchange of goods and services across borders. Trade provides people with greater selection of goods and services to choose from. The importance of international trade to a nation economic welfare and development suggest that economies need to export goods and services in order to generate revenue to finance imported goods and services which cannot be produce indigenously (Coutts and Godley, 1992: McCombie and Thirlwall, 1992). Most theories of international trade such as comparative advantage theory, product life cycle...

The Theory of Constraints and the Automotive Industry
The bottleneck appears in many aspects of the automotive industry. Not only is the specified branch of the manufacturer but also in more specific branches of products such as locally owned dealers, individual parts suppliers, and then on the consumer service side, repair shops. Looking at all of these some bottlenecks or constraints are easily identifiable. For this I will look closer at the service side of the industry and how the theory of constraints can affect the repair shops.
First off forecasting for a repair shop can already be a hard to estimate because it is an as needed service. The slow-downs in this business are close to...

There are several theoretical approaches to what creates an effective leader. Four main approaches are identified for this report; they are the Trait Approach, the Skills Approach, The Style Approach, and the Situational Approach. For over a century researchers have been trying to define what makes an effective or good leader, there are several theories with the most common question appearing to be are good or effective leaders born or bred. Our book, Leadership Theory and Practice, treats leadership as a complex process having multiple dimensions. (Northouse, 2013).
The Trait Approach was identified as one of the earliest attempts to study leadership in the early 20th century. The...

Institutional Theory Part One
Introduction of Institutional Theory What are institutions? The general understanding of institutions can be defined as a set of formal and informal rules of conduct, made by humans that facilitate coordination or govern relationships between individuals, organizations or
government. Examples of institutions include laws, regulations, customs, social and professional norms, culture, and ethics. Selznick (1949) notes that "the most important thing about organizations is that, though they are tools, each nevertheless has a life of its own". While he acknowledges rational view that organizations are designed to attain goals, he notes that the formal...

Game theory is the method utilized to understand the behavior of oligopolies or market situations in which each of a few producers affects but does not control the market. Unlike monopolies in which a company has complete control of the entire supply of goods and/or services in a certain market, oligopolies do have competitors with in the market. However, unlike monopolistically competitive firms and perfectly competitive firms, firms within a oligopolistic frame work have so few competitors that marketing and pricing decisions made by one firm has a very unique possibility of affecting all the other firms within that market segment. In essence, competitors must take their competitors'...

THEORY SYNTHESIS #3
CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, DOMINGUEZ HILLS
I. Theories of Organizational Culture and Change
Organizational Culture and Change theories were first introduced between the 1950’s and 1960’s, but gained an unsavory reputation in the 1980’s. The origins of this theory came from the realization that U.S. companies and government agencies had lost their competitiveness and agility during the last three decades of the 20th century (Shafritz, Ott, Jang, 2011, pg. 338). This was in addition to the understanding that organizational change required more than structural or functional tweaking but instead that that organizational cultures had to be...

Classical Conditioning: Association of Interest Led to Conditioning
Classical conditioning, synonymous with Pavlovian and respondent conditioning, is one of two types of learning (the other type of learning is operant conditioning) that provide a systematic approach to understanding human and nonhuman behavior and the potentiality of changing behavior. Learning significantly affects our way of living, functioning, and survival. Learning's predictability qualities assist in directing behavior. Kowalski & Westen (2009) affirm, "Learning is essentially about...

BAND THEORY OF SOLIDS
According to quantum free electron theory of metals, a electron in a metal experiences constant(or zero) potential and free to move inside the crystal but will not come out of the metal because an infinite potential exists at the surface.
Bloch Theorem: According to this theorem, the periodic potentials due to the positive ions in metal have been considered. (i.e. the electrons moves in a periodic potential provided by lattice). If the electron moves through these ions, it experiences varying potentials. The potential of an electron at the positive ion site zero and is maximum in between two ions. i.e. the potential experienced by an electron varies periodically...

Social Exchange Theory
Social exchange theory is a social psychological and sociological perspective that explains social change and stability as a process of negotiated exchanges between parties. Social exchange theory posits that human relationships are formed by the use of a subjective cost-benefit analysis and the comparison of alternatives. The theory has roots in economics, psychology and sociology. Social exchange theory features many of the main assumptions found in rational choice theory and structuralism. Social exchange theory was introduced in 1958 by the sociologist George Homans with the publication of his work "Social Behavior as Exchange". He...

CONTINGENCY THEORY (1960s-1970s)
Contingency theory derives from system theory but it focuses more on deeper aspects. Contingency theory is a management approach that emphasizes what managers do in practice depends on a given set of circumstances (situation) (Boehm, A &L. Howard, 1997). Basically, it is the practice of the mangers depending on their environmental circumstances or situation. It is also called as “It all depends” theory or “Situation” theory (Thenmozhi, 2010,2011). According to Howard (1997), although adapting a management decision to situation seems to be simple, but it is actually very complex due to unpredictable situation.
This theory exists during the emergence of new...

Jack A. Adams’ A Closed-Loop Theory Of Motor Learning attempts to explain the process of how motor learning is achieved in humans. He argues that a sufficient motor learning theory should cover how verbal and motor processes work together to produce learning and also how errors are detected and corrected. In this paper it will be shown that Adams fails to do this as there are numerous flaws incorporated into his argument. Adams tends to overlook necessary details and his theory fails to explain how motor learning is achieved in individuals who do not possess a “verbal capability”.
The central components to Adams theory are the concepts of knowledge of results or KR, the perceptual trace,...

Left Realism is part of Social Conflict Theory; The Critical Criminologist examines in a critical way how the conservative agenda of lowering labor costs through Union busting and welfare limitations and tax cuts that favored the wealthy, ending affirmative action, and reducing environmental control and regulations, how these actions effect the common person. Using Left Realism Theory the Critical Criminologist believes they have an obligation and responsibility for informing the public about the dangers of these developments.

Critically evaluate Maslow’s hierarchy of needs as way of understanding employee motivation in contemporary Chinese business
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a famous psychological theory developed by Abraham Maslow in 1943. This theory says that there is a hierarchy of human needs which reflects their motivations. He divided human needs into five hierarchies: physical needs, security needs, social needs, self-esteem and self-actualization needs. He stated that human motivations approximately change through these five levels. As a result, it has been considered as a useful tool in management in western countries because motivation is an important factor of human behaviors. Motivation plays an...

Feminist Social Theory.
The feminist social theory calls for equality for both genders- men and women. It entails studying gender inequality, the roles of women in the society, their experiences, duties and their contribution in fields such as, among others, sociology, and literature. The theory has been studied examined and expanded by several analysts such as sociologist Dorothy Smith, Patricia Hill Collins and Judith Butler. They all have their distinct views regarding the topic. Their conclusions also contain differences as well as similarities.
First, Dorothy Smith is a Canadian sociologist who involves neo-Marxist and phenomenological concepts and ideas...

Positive Accounting Theory:
A Ten Year Perspective
Ross L. Watts and Jerold L. Zimmerman
University of Rochester
ABSTRACT: This paper reviews and critiques the positive accounting literature
following publication of Watts and Zimmerman (1978, 1979). The
1978 paper helped generate the positive accounting literature which offers
an explanation of accounting practice, suggests the importance of contracting
costs, and has led to the discovery of some previously unknown
empirical regularities. The 1979 paper produced a methodological debate
that has not been very productive. This paper attempts to remove some
common misconceptions about methodology that surfaced in the debate. It

Outline and evaluate the restorative theory as explanation of a function of sleep
The restorative theory is suggested to be a purpose of sleep that serves the function of restoring the body in several ways; firstly Slow Wave Sleep (SWS) is said to be the stage of sleep that releases the growth hormone. This hormone is functional for renewing proteins and involved in protein synthesis, and also involved in the immune system in restoring antibodies. This idea is supported by Sassin et al who looked at individuals who "reversed" their sleep cycle, so they were asleep during the day and awake at night, and the growth hormone was still released during sleep, supporting the role of the SWS...

a) Explain Plato’s Theory of Forms
Plato’s Theory of Forms is similar to many other beliefs about the world. For instance, Heraclitus’ notion was that we see a world of perception in constant flux of which we have no true knowledge, while Zeno believed that we can see a static unchanging world and it can be grasped through reason. Plato’s theory is strongly based on what is real and what is not. What is real is thought to be perfect, but something cannot be real or perfect if it is transient. He explains that the World of Forms is very different to the World of Shadows. The World of Forms can only be properly understood by philosophers and those who seek knowledge, not by the ignorant or...

Kelling was formerly the director of the evaluation field staff of the Police foundation. Later he became a fellow researcher at the John F. Kennedy School of Government Harvard. These two men developed the “Broken Windows Theory” in 1982.
In the mid-1970, the state of New Jersey, the governor decided that he wanted to take a different approach to crime prevention. He decided to take city police officers out of their cars and put them on foot patrol. The police chief of each of the twenty-eight cities thought that this would be a good idea.

Because there are so many people of all different ages there are many patterns of interaction and diversity issues that affect the family dynamics.

Perception and Attribution Theory
Understanding how people form perceptions and attributions is a necessary skill in order to succeed in communications and long lasting business relationships. In the study of social psychology person perception is defined as the process in which humans form impressions of one another which encompasses the perceptions and judgments people develop every day. A new acquaintance is encountered everyday especially when one works in the business arena and impressions are created due the persons attire, language, body language, and especially how well they communicate. Based on all these characterisis conclusions are drawn even tough not much is known about the...

‘English law is based on an objective theory of contract. The commercial advantage of this approach is that it promotes certainty and predictability in the resolution of contractual disputes. Also as a matter of principle, it is not unfair to impute to the parties to a contract or a potential contact an intention that in the event of a dispute a neutral judge should decide the case applying an objective standard of reasonableness.’
Discuss whether an objective approach is satisfactory and the extent to which English law is committed to that approach in relation to the finding of offer and acceptance.

Born and raised a Catholic, I have been exposed to religion my entire life. I went Catholic schools from nursery school, all the way up until college and have observed all of the different levels of religiousness people display. I look at religious belief as a spectrum. On one side there are those who are infatuated with religion and God almost on an unhealthy level. As you work your way down the spectrum you begin to experience people who are less in love with religion and God, and more cynical about the whole thing. Here we come across Agnostics, who feel as if it is impossible for them to know if there really is any divine being out there. And finally, on the complete opposite side of the...

My Theory of Personality
I would approach personality from a behavioural point of view. Behaviour is influenced to a great deal by the environment that a person grows in. Many a times we are a product of what we interact with and it is this what shapes our character to attain that complete being with a particular trait that people are able to identify. The behaviours that one may pick in his/her process of growth may be influenced by various factors including such as culture, and family values among many others. The world provides a platform for people to exercise self-realization. We are all born into this world...

To call women the weaker sex is a libel. It is man’s injustice to women. If by strength is a man’s strength brute; then indeed is a woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is man’s power, as she has better intuition. Is she not more self sacrificing? Has she not greater endurance? Has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If non violence is the law of our being, the future is with women.

Moral development was described in two stages by Piaget. Kohlberg took those two...

Economics: Micro and Macro Theory and Application
In economics, and cost accounting, total cost (TC) describes the total economic cost of production and is made up of variable costs, which vary according to the quantity of a good produced and include inputs such as labor and raw materials, plus fixed costs, which are independent of the quantity of a good produced and include inputs (capital) that cannot be varied in the short term, such as buildings and machinery.
TC = FC + VC
Average cost equals to total cost divided by the number of goods produced (output). It is also a sum of average variable costs plus average fixed costs. Average costs may dependent on the time...

A number of prisoners are bound by their necks and legs so that they cannot turn around. They have been this way since birth and know no other life than this. Behind the prisoners are a low wall, a walkway and a fire that burns. From time to time individuals carry objects like marionettes in front of the fire and shadows are cast against the wall in front of them. The prisoners observe the shadows that flicker before them and have developed a game over time. They try to predict the movements of the shadows. They associate the sounds made by the individuals with the shadows as...

OPERANT CONDITIONING, A THEORY DEVELOPED BY B.F. SKINNER
Dating back to the 1800’s, many theories have developed in reference to Child Development. There have been theories that have become classics and those that continue to cause controversy. Doing research on these theories one of them really stood out to me and that is the one of B.F. Skinner. Skinner believed that the best way to understand behavior is to look at the causes of an action and its consequences. He called this approach operant conditioning. The main principles of operant conditioning, as defined by Skinner, are reinforcement, punishment, shaping, extinction, discrimination, and generalization.
Reinforcement is the key...

a.) Aristotle’s Theory of The Four Causes.
Aristotle argues for and explains the four causes in his books ‘Physics’ and ‘Metaphysics’. He claims that there are only four causes (or explanations) needed to give evidence for change in the world. A complete explanation of the change of any object will use all four causes. These causes are; material, formal, efficient and final. Aristotle understood that each of the four causes was necessary to explain the change from potentiality to actuality.
The material cause is the substance of which something is made out of; "That from which, as a constituent, an object comes into being." The human bodies ‘material causes’ are cells,...

Our piece was based on the ‘British bakeoff” in which one of our contestants cheated (me being the cheat) and somebody saw and nobody speaks up about it. The piece portrayed the importance of speaking up and not being a bystander.
