Leadership Training Program

Leadership Training Program
Congratulations! Your boss has just given you the task of helping organize a training for new leaders entering your
organization. She mentioned that you will be expecting 10 new employees for the training, and she wants you to be in
charge of preparing them for their new roles in leadership. She also added that she hopes you can show them that
leadership is more than just management.
Based on what you have learned so far in our course, create a training that will help the new leaders understand the
difference between leadership and management. Additionally, you will help develop their leadership skills and explain why
leadership is important in the organization.
Describe at least two exercises you could implement that could help the new leaders develop leadership competencies.
Include in your description each training method that you will use (computer-based, traditional, and/or e-learning) and the
reason why you chose this method. Also, include what you hope the new leaders will learn from this training.
Remember, these new employees are part of the future of your company. Getting them excited from the start about their
new leadership roles will have positive effects.
Your scholarly activity should be a minimum of three full pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. You
must use at least one outside resource, which could include a required reading article, or any useful resource you find.
Regardless of which you choose to include, any and all must have accompanying APA citations.

Interviewing/Interrogating for the Robbery at the Centervale Grocery Emporium

While on patrol with the Centervale Police Department (CPD) you are dispatched to a robbery in progress at the Centervale grocery store. You arrive to find the suspects have fled the scene. There are several witnesses inside the store including customers and two store employees. Obviously shaken, they are huddled together discussing the robbery. You know that taking witnesses’ statements is a critical piece of any investigation because witnesses often hold valuable information about the incident and critical evidence. Further, witnesses also have first-hand knowledge that can be helpful in narrowing the scope towards apprehending a suspect and the eventual successful prosecution of a case. After calling in a Be on the lookout (BOLO) for the suspects and their vehicle, you proceed by separating the three witnesses inside the store in order to appropriately conduct interviews: Cashier—Connie Cousins; Maintenance manager—Larry Sweeney; and Customer—Sally Frederickson.
Connie Cousins, who is noticeably upset, shares that she has seen these culprits in the store before. She states, “They have been here before, one of them knows Larry, they seemed to know right where we keep our cash and who may be able to retrieve it, me. The older guy had a huge gun; he put it right in my face. He’s the one that drove the vehicle that they came in.”
Sally Frederickson, a customer, states, “I’ve never seen these guys before. They had a gun and seemed to want to shoot someone. I think I can identify them if I see them again, hey, I heard one of them call that guy (pointing to Larry) by his name. Larry right?”
During your investigation you develop a lead that another witness, Larry; the maintenance person of the store, is related to one of the suspects. Larry Sweeney is 80 years old and he appears mentally challenged. You learn from a fellow employee that Larry’s mental capacity is below the fifth grade level. You know that it is crucial that Larry’s mental capacity, his age, as well as his potential relationship to one of the suspects are factors that must be considered throughout the duration of the interview process.
During your investigation you notice some communication challenges as well as some inconsistencies between witness statements. Based on your findings, you begin to theorize that Larry Sweeney might have been involved in the crime. Because you have no probable cause you continue with the investigation by gathering important information to help determine who was involved and whose level of involvement meets the legal elements in order to be appropriately charged.
Two hours after the incident, a fellow police officer spots a vehicle sitting at a stoplight that matches the description of the suspect’s vehicle. The officer observes two individuals sitting in the front driver’s seat and front passenger’s seat of the vehicle. Based on the information in the BOLO both individuals fit the descriptions that were given by witnesses at the store. The officer stops the suspect’s vehicle and detains the suspects without incident. The suspects are then transported to the CPD for further investigation. The suspects were later identified as, 14-years-old, Jerry Smith, and Scot Sweeney, 18 year-old-driver of the vehicle.
There are many issues that must be considered when conducting a successful investigation. In many cases, witness statements and suspect interrogations are critical towards successful prosecution. Because a case cannot make it into the courtroom unless legally sound, the importance of the legal issues in the above scenario cannot be understated.
In a 7- to 8-page Microsoft Word document, develop a plan for the interview and/or the interrogation of the witnesses and suspects in this case scenario. Use APA in-text citations to cite external sources The details of your plan should include, but are not limited to the following questions:
• Identify and discuss three strategies that could be effective in handling the multiple witnesses to the crime? Analyze controversial research and/or theory relating to interview and interrogation. Use this information to justify your three strategy selections and how you might avoid eliciting false-confessions.

• Describe the optimum room design for conducting this investigation. In preparation for these interviews and interrogations create a table of General Questions and Specific Questions to ask the witnesses and/or suspects. Analyze each question and provide your rationale for why you would ask the witnesses or suspects each question.

• The situation with witness/suspect, Larry Sweeney, needs to be handled carefully for many reasons. Evaluate this situation: will you be conducting an interview or an interrogation? Explain the reason for your decision to conduct either an interview or an interrogation. What strategies will you employ to effectively interview or interrogate Larry and uncover his involvement in this criminal case? How will your personal attributes interrelate with the strategies you selected?

• Evaluate the legal implications that need to be considered when interrogating juveniles, the elderly, and individuals with questionable mental capacity. What laws, case law, and Constitutional Amendments are involved? Evaluate the differences between Larry Sweeney and Jerry Smith.

Leadership Personal Issues and the Rules of Law

Law enforcement in America has seen drastic changes over the past one hundred years, from the educational requirements of officers to the interpretation of the bill of rights. Law enforcement officers today are expected to perform their duties at a very high level of professionalism and morality. Unfortunately, when officers don’t perform at this high level it is their commanders who ultimately may be held responsible for their actions. Use your textbook, the Internet, and / or library to research credible sources on the aforementioned issues as they relate to law enforcement operations and management.
Write a five to seven (5-7) page paper in which you:
Examine the higher (postsecondary education) requirements that police hiring agencies have for potential candidates. Support or critique the requirement that officers possess such an education.
Compare and contrast the fundamental differences between arrest and searches and seizures conducted with and without warrants. Provide a rationale for why these areas are important as they relate to the Bill of Rights and Fourth Amendment guarantees.
Compare and contrast the main ways in which Packard’s crime-control model and the due process model differ in the matter of police ethics. Provide your opinion on which of the two (2) approaches lends itself to the possibility of ethical violations in law enforcement?
Hypothesize two (2) situations where police supervisors may be held criminally liable for their officers’ misconduct.
Use at least four (4) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

Assignment 4: Annual Review

Imagine you work at a company and it is time for an employee named Jim’s annual review. While he was a model employee the first nine (9) months of the year, recently Jim has been coming in late. It has not been just a few minutes each day, either. It is starting to cause problems in the production line. In this assignment, write a one (1) page summary of your conversation with Jim. How will you address his recent performance issues while still praising him for his previous nine (9) months of good work? Your goal is to balance the negative and positive feedback so that Jim will leave motivated to do his best.

Write a one (1) page paper in which you:

Explain how you will address Jim’s recent performance issues.
Suggest both constructive and positive feedback designed so that Jim will leave motivated to do his best.
Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, your professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

Explain effective approaches to the broad spectrum of employee relations, including career development, fostering ethical behavior, discipline, labor relations, and dismissals.
Analyze various techniques, considerations, and designs of performance appraisal programs.
Use technology and information resources to research issues in human resource management.
Write clearly and concisely about human resource management using proper writing mechanics.

how Spotify has altered people’s habits of everyday life and music experience

The research proposal has illustrated research questions for the topic. The way how Spotify has altered people’s habits of everyday life and music experience, as well as how the streaming experience affect people differently, and it changes the way people relate to music and relate to each other are the interesting points that I would like to focus.

– Can talk about the idea of Marshall McLuhan in relation to the topic and research questions. The bibliography in the proposal is useful for writing the research paper.

– This is an individual, written, research report, reporting what you’ve found in your research, and how this has changed your thought about, and understanding of, advanced media issues. "Advanced media issues" might well mean "contemporary media issues" but it does not have to. You may well be interested in VR or AI, but you may just as easily be interested in advanced thinking about communication 10,000, or for that matter 10 million years ago.

Criteria for this Assignment

1. Your research into the topic, and your links between the specifics involved and more general issues.

2. Your critical thinking through of the issues involved and careful response to them. Note here that “critical thinking” is not just (or even) saying “what’s wrong” with something. “Critical” is much misunderstood as a term. In this course, “critical thinking” means that you need to explore what actually works or what’s valuable in the ideas/events you’re engaged with, as well as what doesn’t work. You need to ask where the ideas could go further, where their limits are (the point at which such ideas cease to be useful), or how they could be modified to be more useful, etc.

3. Your synthesis (bringing together) of the ideas, practices and issues you’re dealing with into a satisfactory form of expression.

4. Your demonstrated engagement with at least some of the materials/readings/explorations/ideas for the course. Please note that this does not mean extensive engagement if that is not relevant to your research. It just means that at some point you should touch on something from the course. Since there is so much on the course, from such a variety of sources, on such a variety of topics, this should not be too difficult. However, we don’t want this criterion to stop your own exploration of your chosen research topic, in your own way. If you’re really interested in some of the ideas or events discussed on the course, you can of course focus on those. If however your topic diverges from the kinds of things we discuss on the course, you only have to touch on a bit from the course. If you’re concerned about this, talk to your tutor about it. They will be happy to discuss it with you.

5. You should have done appropriate research, demonstrate your work from the course as a whole, and, just as importantly, have done some careful critical thinking, as above.

the evolution of sport law

SPT 610: Midterm Exam

Answer all of the questions listed.

1. Discuss the evolution of sport law. Provide at least one example as part of your analysis.

2. Review the following information:

FACTS: Mariana Shaw was a sophomore at Stanford University. She was a talented tennis player who had earned a full four-year athletic scholarship. Last year, she attended a Stanford- USC football game with two friends. She left the game early to go to the library to study for her Sport Law midterm. She walked through a Stanford University parking lot on her way to the library and noticed two men who appeared to be drunk and fighting. The two men were walking away from each other when one of them staggered and fell into Mariana from behind, tearing the ACL in her left knee. There were no security personnel from Stanford in the area when the injury occurred.

Shaw sued Stanford alleging that she, as a business invitee, should have been protected by Stanford from the act of this third party. Stanford argued that it had no liability absent any actual notice of a particular danger to a patron.

The trial court granted Stanford’s motion for summary judgment.

HOLDING: The California Court of Appeals reversed and remanded the case back to the trial court.

a. Justify the trial court’s decision to grant summary judgment.

b. Why do you think the Appellate Court did not agree with the trial court’s decision?

3. Review the following information:

Homer Foster took his family (7-year-old son Bart, 9-year-old daughter Lisa, and wife Marge) to see the New Hampshire Fisher Cats baseball team. A colleague from the Southern New Hampshire University Sport Management department gave him four tickets to the game and told him to bring baseball gloves because the seats were in the first row behind the first base dugout. It was a rainy day but the umpires decided to let the game be played. Only Homer and Marge had been to a baseball game before. Between the third and fourth innings, Bart volunteered to participate in a promotional event to run around the bases against the team mascot. Bart, in a state of confusion, turned around and ran into the mascot upon reaching second base, sustaining a concussion and a broken arm. Bart, being a tough kid, returned to his seat, put on his iPod, and watched the rest of the game. In the sixth inning, the mascot came over to see how Bart was doing, and then Bart and Lisa played with the mascot. While the visiting team was throwing the ball around between plays, and while Lisa and Bart were being distracted by the mascot, the shortstop accidentally threw the wet, slippery ball over the first baseman and into the stands, hitting Lisa in the face and breaking her nose. Homer finished his fifth beer, which he had just purchased from the same beer vendor, and immediately left with Bart, Lisa, and Marge to go to the hospital. In his rush to get to the hospital, he hit a school bus carrying Girl Scouts, seriously injuring the bus driver and two of the scouts. The bus driver was driving 10 miles per hour over the speed limit and his driver’s license was under suspension due to his recent conviction for operating a motor vehicle under the influence (alcohol-related).

Discuss the potential plaintiffs, defendants, and theories of liability and likely defenses as a result of these facts. Brief one of the possible lawsuits.

4. Review the following information:

The plaintiff, Michael Wildman, sued the defendant, Mount Manchester, LLC for injuries he suffered while skiing at the defendant’s ski area. The plaintiff alleged that he “went off the trail and descended into the woods.” The plaintiff’s expert witness testified that he struck “…either a rock, stumps, cut log or tree.” The expert also cited several “failures” of the defendant including inadequate construction and maintenance of the ski trails; inadequate warnings, markings and directions; inadequate channeling of skiers; inadequate safety measures and risk reduction policies; inadequate inspection; and inadequate training, supervision, and management of personnel.

Use New Hampshire law (RSA 225-A:23 and 225-A:24) to assist in your analysis.

a. What does the plaintiff have to prove?
b. What defenses does the ski area have?
c. Discuss whether you think the ski area has any liability.
