Ã¢â¬Å"Since the focus of LD is to facilitate change, itÃ¢â¬â¢s your role to make sure employees understand how to embrace it. YouÃ¢â¬â¢re not just implementing a new learning tool or delivering a course. You also need to be able to help employees manage the mental process of understanding change.Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â Todd Dewett [Tweet Learning Development isÃ one of the many areas where HR is innovating.] The business world is changing. Millennials in the workplace are looking for something more than just making money. They are looking for a purpose and employers must find a way to keep this talent motivated and develop them to their full potential. Learning Development isÃ one of the many areas where HR is innovating this year. Sending employees to training and coaching workshops occasionally is no longer enough, and is not creating an impact on the young employees. Employers are looking for new ways to approach this in the workplace. To be able to achieve an effective result, businessmen and businesswomen will have to think outside the box. Satisfying the need of self-development and developing talent will be hard but, in my opinion, there are innovative ways to accomplish it. The philosophy behind yoga is based on self-development and can serve as a guideline for people development in the workplace. Yoga may not seem the obvious choice, but the philosophy behind yoga is based on self-development and can serve as a guideline for people development in the workplace. There are multiple ways to see a yoga practice. Some people see it as a physical exercise, others see it as a spiritual practice and some others, like me, came across yoga in a moment ofÃ needing clarity. Since I began my yoga practice, IÃ¢â¬â¢ve been looking for a way to mix the business world with the yoga world. It hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t been easy since most people when thinking about business in the yoga world automatically think about teaching or opening studios. However, I have experienced yoga as a self-discovery path and an empowering practice that in my opinion could be used as a Learning Development tool to keep employees engaged. Yoga as a self-awareness practice The style of yoga that I practice is called Rocket Yoga. On the outside people may think it looks like just fun, all fancy poses and circus-like people, but what you find in this yoga style is a search for your inner teacher. Rocket yoga may challenge you physically but in every practice the sequence lets you go inwards. In each pose, the teacher doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t tell you what you should do but instead guides you to get to know your body and listen to what it needs and can do in each moment of the practice. This style encourages you to have a voice, to know what you as an individual want to do. The Rocket taught me how to find the limit of my comfort zone and encourages me to challenge myself to always go even further, not only in my yoga practice but in my daily life. Having a constant practice of self-reflection helps us be aware of patterns and to create new ones. Yoga as a self-reflection practice Since I started practicing Rocket yoga my teacher always encouraged me to practice self-reflection. During our teacher training, we started a habit of journaling after each practice to reflect on the experience we had and what we observe about ourselves. This can also be applied to your professional and personal life. I think doing this after a day of work is a great practice to create mindfulness and self-reflection. Having a constant practice of self-reflection helps us be aware of patterns and to create new ones. One of my favorite examples of this is an aspect of LululemonÃ¢â¬â¢s culture, the habit of goal setting. Every employee from top to bottom in the company must define a list of goals and steps to achieve them. The difference from other existing programs IÃ¢â¬â¢ve seen is that employees come back frequently to these goals and are encouraged and coached by peers to achieve them. Yoga as a tool for work/life balance ItÃ¢â¬â¢s not a secret anymore that stress in the workplace doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t do any good to employees, but how do we manage that stress? Having yoga classes within companies is now a trend but most of the time itÃ¢â¬â¢s just something that looks good in a company description but doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t really create value. Bringing yoga to the companies is a good first step, but for it to become an important asset it must be more than a simple benefit. As any LD program, for a yoga program to have the results mentioned above it must consist also of constant check-ins and follow-ups. The Yoga Club in action at the Hut San Francisco campus. [Tweet Yoga Club at Hult provides support to the student community] These are some of the reasons why I decided to open the Yoga Club at Hult. Our club members are people that had never or barely practiced yoga before but were interested in the benefits theyÃ¢â¬â¢d heard yoga could give them. The club is not made for six times a week yogis but instead provides a safe space and support for people interested in the benefits of yoga to explore them. [Tweet Yoga as a LD tool empowers you to keep changing and growing.] My teacher always encouraged me to think about three questions: What do you want? Where do you want to live? Who do you want to be when you grow up? These questions may not seem yoga-related but they are. Yoga can be whatever you want it to be, but if you choose it to be a learning and development tool it will give you insights about your mind and life that you had never noticed, and it will empower you to always keep changing and growing.

Mersault, Antigone and Gregor as Outsiders In every society there is an outsider, a person who stands out amongst the crowd, someone who does not fit in with the norm. Most of the time it is obvious who the outsider in a group is, but sometimes it takes a deeper look into the personality and characteristics of a person to see the traits that make the person an Outsider. The characters that will be compared are Mersault from Camuss The Outsider, Sophocless Antigone and Gregor Samsa from Kafkas Metamorphosis. Each of these characters is portrayed as anÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦The characters confront Mersault and give a greater look into the personality of the antagonist. Sophocles also uses this technique; he contrasts Antigone to her sister Ismene. It is only possible to this via dialogue; Antigone is a play therefore all the message the playwright wants to bring across must be in dialogue or actions. These contrasts show us how Antigone and Mersault differ from the people around, and it also allows the author to show us the deeper personalities of the outsiders. In Metamorphosis Kafka uses other techniques to give us the impression that Gregor is an outsider. He makes it obvious Gregor is different by changing him into a bug, but he also writes about certain minor changes that make Gregor different and less human. At the beginning of the book when the reader first discovers what has befallen Gregor, Kafka writes it as if there is nothing absurd about this change, he gives us no reason for the change therefore giving the impression of indifference on both his and Gregors part. Camus Mersault also conveys this indifference. Kafka makes it seem as if Gregors metamorphosis is not the actual highlight of

Comparing the industrialization of Britain and Japan Two ships can arrive at the same destination; however that does not necessarily mean that they used the same route on their journey. Such is the same with the industrialization of Britain and Japan. Both rose to become the two great pioneers of the modern world; however the paths they took to success were different. This paper will compare Japan and Britain, exploring the causes of its industrialization, and how the countries drastically changed because of it. What sets BritainÃ¢â¬â¢s industrialization process apart from Japans is that it did not have a role model to base its development on; it was the first industrial nation. Therefore the cause of its industrialization must have muchÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦However the biggest advantage Britain had that spurred their modern thinking into industrial factories was its geography. England had fast flowing rivers that were effective to power water mills for machinery, and provided transportation routes for industrial goods. The weak point about rivers was that in winter they froze, stopping the water powered machinery and blocking routes (Little, n.d.). This leads to the true geographical advantage of Britain, one that wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t stop by the effects of seasons: high deposits of coal and iron ore. Coal was able to power the newly invented steam engine, which was a breakthrough leading to large scale industries (Little, n.d.). The idea of using steam as a force to power machinery was not new during the seventeen hundreds; it had already been mentioned by ancient Greek scholars. It was scientist such as James watt that refined that idea to create the steam engine (Live science, 2012). The concept is simple, water is heated by coal and the resulting steam acts as a driving force for the machines, similar to how the rivers flow powered the mills (Live science, 2012). Water power meant that factories were limited to certain locations, however steam powered factories could did not have such constraint (Live sc ience, 2012). The steam engine expanded industries all over Britain. First, it improved the coal industry by pumping water out of coal mines, making it safe from flooding (Live science, 2012).

It is a pace where they do not have to worry about the evil of society. It is a place where they can drawback from society and just relax.

Question: Discuss about the Potential Risks and Risk Eva Luation. Answer: Potential Risks The potential risk might originate from both interior and outer sources. The outside dangers are those that are not in coordinate control of the administration. These incorporate political issues, trade rates, financing costs, et cetera. Inward dangers, then again, incorporate rebelliousness or data breaks, among a few others. The risk management is imperative in an association in light of the fact that without it, a firm can't in any way, shape or form characterize its destinations for what's to come. In the event that an organization characterizes targets without thinking about the dangers, odds are that they will lose course once any of these dangers hit home. The possible risk components in the virtual reality real estate agency are: customer along with open trust in the virtual reality real estate agency; credibility, notoriety as well as virtual reality status; equipment as well as the virtual reality capability for the real estate agency; financial functioning of the real estate agency for the money related matters health and wellbeing of workers, clients, volunteers and members. The showcasing and money related capacity requires records of consumptions and wage, and expense records, publicizing solicitations and that's only the tip of the iceberg. The occupant administration includes records of every one of their solicitations, rental installment history and standards infringement, and office upkeep and repairs require support plans, repair records for guarantee, and representative and subcontractor faculty records (McGivern,2012). Risk Mitigation A methodical way to deal with overseeing risk is currently viewed as best administration rehearse. The approach taken quite often benefits the association regardless of sort of hazard included. Once the risk is recognized it is reported in detail; accordingly, the concerned partners attempt conceivable risk (Adair,2005). There are two bolsters that shall support the virtual reality real estate agency risk alleviation program: an all-around contrived speculation arrangement and a thorough and intensive checking framework. The speculation approach must reflect and convey to administrators the vital concentration and targets of the land portfolio, yet be adjusted by a worked in adaptability to position the portfolio for a ever evolving market. A venture strategy that can explore between these two clashing objectives (Atherton, 2008). The major key concentration for this real estate agency shall be adaptability It shall fill in as a risk relief apparatus for virtual reality agency. Be that as it may, the concentrate should dependably stay on the key goal of land in the general portfolio. Something else, there is the potential for vital float and of bringing dangers into the portfolio. In the meantime, checking frameworks and intermittent audits are basic for keeping the portfolio in accordance with vital targets. Focusing on the "tall trees" and observing portfolio exposures can help guarantee that a financial specialist is clinging to the key goals. At long last, it is basic to remember the general population side of the condition. A fruitful risk administration process must penetrate all through the firm and the basic leadership process in the agency. The virtual reality firm must endeavor to have an adjusted view from the speculation/return viewpoint and the risk premise for their employees as well as for the client. It is vital not to go into full-drive hostile mode or withdraw into a protective stance for a really long time (Antunes, 2015). Each new venture, strategy or creation ought to incorporate all the conceivable expected dangers that one may perhaps stand up to. Basic leadership process needs to consider dangers distinguished, its effect and response on the business. By making a watchful examination, organizations will have less astonishments and subsequently may at last invest less energy recouping from the misfortunes that might be unavoidable on occasion. At the point when organizations don't have "a sharp eye on the sort of hazard", chance maintenance can turn into a true blue method for dealing with the risk. Risk Eva luation Risk examination is the introduce and reason for the hazard choice. Along these lines, a great hazard examination is imperative for financial specialists, it is the way to decide the venture. the procedure of the hazard investigation is for the most part the hazard distinguishing proof, estimation and assessment. At long last, make a far reaching and framework investigation as per the past examination. Counting hazard recognizable proof, chance appraisal and hazard assessment organize (Flyvbjerg,2015). The land speculation chance order During the time spent the land venture, capital necessities a long and tireless period, which makes the hazard changed and complex, which mostly including the accompanying the real estate properties. Rivalry in the market Rivalry in the market chance alludes to that there is excessively comparative structures in the land showcase, which makes the land rivalry and the relating advancement expenses may enhance, lodging unsolvable et cetera . Which will creates an extraordinary effect to financial specialists. Furthermore, the primary purpose behind the market hazard is that the early market research and examination of the work is bad. Among them, the market rivalry capacity is the principle deals chance (Flyvbjerg,2015). Business Risk Deviating alludes to the normal esteem and the real working outcomes, and the reason for this circumstance is the operational blunders. This hazard has the accompanying three circumstances (Flyvbjerg,2015): To begin with, because of the poor advantage of the endeavor, administration level is not flawless, if those are not sold in time, the lodging opening rate will be high, the benefit is additionally moderately well underneath desires, which related costs expanded. Second, the financial specialist's administration basic leadership blunders prompt the operational hazard, which is for the most part since speculators are not know exact market data, and settle on botches in basic leadership. Third, the applicable legitimate arrangements, and city arranging controls makes taxation rate for financial specialists, for example, land venture movement is essential, however it doesn't exceptionally get it. The liquidity risk When Real domain is settled, the arrangement can just is the procedure of proprietorship or the exchange of utilizing right and the element can't move. Since it takes up more cash, and the amount is huge, which make the land exchange is an a significant long process, These are the impacting components of the stream danger of land and liquidation capacity is poor, for example, land speculators would be seriously needing money yet they would not offer the land in the hands at the earliest opportunity, regardless of the possibility that effective, which will influence the venture wage, so it bring land financial specialists to sell returns on hazard (Flyvbjerg,2015). The obtaining power risk It is for the most part alludes to the acquiring energy of land of individuals relative decay, since individuals purchase land product request diminishes moderately, additionally along these lines, which will make it hard to deal for land financial specialists, and cause harm (Flyvbjerg,2015).

Question: Discuss about the 21st Century Leadership for Complexity and Collaboration. Answer: Introduction The inception of management research transformed how leadership was perceived. The emergence of new managerial skills led to a new perspective on leadership. This was because, within management research, leadership was taken to be effective only if it resulted in higher economic output (Lorz, 2005). The objective of this study, therefore, is to provide a critical literature review on the topic of 21st century leadership. Lorze, (2005) note that there are numerous definitions of what is leadership. However, he identifies four elements which are persistent in all leadership definitions. These elements include; Integration of these components, therefore, results to the formulation of what can be termed as 21st century leadership definition. Leadership is the relationship process between the leaders, the followers, and the environment. It is an interaction process because it entails vision formulation on the basis of situational knowledge and unifying the followers to attain the vision (Lorz, 2005). According to Saee, (2005) the 21st century environment is featured by tremendous changes which have influenced how business is conducted. Advancement in telecommunication and availability of internet has contributed to rapid globalisation. As a result, the contemporary society is well interconnected through the internet; hence, a changed business environment which demands new competencies. Predicted Key Competencies for the 21st Century Leaders The key competencies for 21st century leaders are rooted in the organisational trends, global trends, and the follower trends. Each of the trends demands certain kind of competence. For example, organisation trends refer to the advancements that affect the core designs of the organisations and how they respond to the changing environment. Hence, leaders are evaluated not only on the basis of the profits they make for the organisation, but also on the ability to interact with stakeholders both within and externally of the organisation. Organisations thus demand a leader who can make it fit for the changing environment. Therefore, flexibility is a key competence predicted for the 21st century leaders. It is the utmost to aid the organisation to react to the shifting trends (Strock, 2010). To achieve it organisation leaders need to replace the network and hierarchies with structures that support flexibility. Global trends, on the other hand, refer to the trends that arise external of the organisation but have a significant impact on the organisational advancement, on the followers, and on the leaders. The influence of global trends leads to increased dynamism that affects almost every business process. Advancement of technology has further connected all stakeholders on a global standpoint. Internet availability has made information available hence increased levels of knowledge (Tice, 2007). Besides, this has intensified competition for cost efficient processes and creativity. Similarly, the quality and the cost of products and services can be compared with ease on the global platform. Hence, 21st leaders are expected to be innovative. They must have the ability to think creatively and to see beyond the immediate situation. Similarly, they must have the audacity to explore and integrate emerging trend to their organisations as well as to appreciate emerging and unexpected opportunities. Followers trends are mainly affected by both the global and organisations trends. Followers transform as the environment around them change. As a result of this change, followers become diverse. This diversity is further influenced by gender and culture as well as culture. Global and organisation trends enable followers to be knowledgeable. Therefore, 21st century leaders need to possess the exceptional intelligence to manage all the followers. Equally, they must have the ability to manage diverse people. The Difference between Classical Leadership capabilities and the 21st Century Leadership Capabilities In classical leadership, leaders were conceptualised as the well-educated professionals who understood organisation rules, and thus they managed their enterprises in hierarchical order. Hence, classical leadership is featured by autocratic leadership model which applies classical management style. In such leadership, a leader is a manager who is authoritarian. In addition, he/she is power-retentive, and all decisions are dependent on them (Dantzer, 2000). As a result, this kind of a leader heads the organisation alone and impacts it alone. This style of leadership, on the other hand, does not entertain consultations and entail issuing of orders and requests. Similarly, classical leadership is characterized by bureaucratic leadership approach. According to Perrin, et al., (2010), classical leadership approach emphasise adherence to stipulated administrative policies and procedures. Hence, it is marked by differential models of authority, division of administrative duties, and linear c areer path. Conversely, 21st century leadership is featured by leadership capabilities which are focused on replacing the classical leadership approaches. Hence, the leadership in the 21st century is marked by core capabilities such empowering, visioning, sensemaking, relating, and inventing, among others. In classical leadership approaches, only a limited amount of powers are delegated, this is done to ensure only the leader retain the control. However, in the 21st century leadership, leaders empower all those under them at all levels (Streat, 2012). Leaders also ensure transparency and accountability to enhance attainment of the organisations objectives. This is further boosted by the ability of the leader to make sense of the environment. Hence, in this model of leadership, a leader must be conversant with all that happen around the organisation. Leadership styles in the 21st century also acknowledge that a leader must have the ability to relate with and work through the other people. To achieve this, leader then must possess effective communication skills which will move the team members to commitment. Similarly, a 21st leader must have the ability to create a vision for the organisation. That is, he/she must identify what the organisation aims to achieve, what is possible, and how to attain the set objectives (Bersin, 2012). These demands call for a leader who is innovative. Innovation will be the key to achieving the set vision through creating processes and structures which will aid the team to work towards the vision. Underlying Causes of Changes in Leadership Capabilities Longwell-McKean, (2012) argues that the changing trends are transforming how, where, and with whom the business is conducted with. Technological and telecommunication advancement have made business environment highly competitive. Therefore, change seems the most natural thing to fit in the 21st century business environment. Similarly, the needs and the knowledge of the customer is rapidly evolving due to globalisation; therefore, any organisation willing to remain relevant must change to meet the demands of their customer. Davis, (2012) affirms that the underlying cause of change to leadership capabilities include external drivers like technological and telecommunication advancement, Availability of information, and changing business environment, globalisation, diversity, and downsizing. Analysis of 21st Century Leadership The 21st century is characterised by rapid technological advancement, development of a global economy, and increasing cultural diversity. Hence, leadership competencies have changed to adapt to these changes. As a result all scholars who have indulged in the management research agree that leaders have an obligation of identifying vision, formulating strategies and mobilising both financial and human resources to attain the vision. Besides, leaders monitor both the external and the internal environment of the organisation to align the organisation vision and the means to attain it. This approach is present in both classical leadership styles and the 21st leadership approach. However, in the 21st century leadership have been transformed into teamwork, where decisions are made in collaboration (Davis, 2012). In addition, this study has established that extensive research has been done on this subject of 21st leadership. However, researches indicate that leaders in the private sector are rated higher in leadership competencies than those in public sector. Dantzer, (2000) argues that the disparity result from different perception of which leadership competencies are the most critical in each sector. This fact, therefore, indicates a research gap in which both sectors can share leadership competencies in the 21st century. Therefore, a study should be launched to identify these competencies considering the same external drivers influence both sectors. Conclusion The 21st century leadership demands creative thinking on ways to solve the current global challenges. According to George, (2010) leaders must establish innovative approaches to deal with the complexities facing the organisations and the business environment today. To achieve the adaptability needed for the current challenges leaders must appreciate collaborative thinking. As acknowledged earlier, the 21st century leadership is featured by interdependence and interconnection of both the internal and external drivers which has changed the business environment. As a result, new competencies are demanded to address the emerging complex global issues. This research, therefore, recommends that there is urgent need to retrain leadership candidates both in the private and the public sectors on new emerging competencies. The study has further identified communication, visioning, teamwork, ability to learn, and cosmopolitan view of the world as the most critical competencies the 21st century leadership candidates must be trained on References Battilana, J., Gilmartin, M., Sengul, M., Pache, A.
