Discussion: Philosophy for a Happy Life
Locked before Tuesday, May 28, 2019 12:00 AM PDT.
Let’s set aside the discussion of mergers and acquisitions, and of downsizing. They, of course, are important, but so is the stamina to finish this course, and finish it Trident strong.
By wrapping up your MGT491 Capstone in HRM course, this means that many of you are set to finish your BSHRM! There is only one module to go. Is your can-do attitude a little zapped? Need a boost? Listen to Sam Berns sharing his philosophy for a happy life. (This speech took place three months before his death.)
Using this information as a springboard, think about the world of work. What is your own philosophy for a happy work life you would like to share with your fellow classmates? Is your philosophy for a happy work life different than your philosophy for a happy life? Imagine yourself as an HR professional in a workplace, what philosophical words of wisdom would you share with your employees?
Additional Key Elements of the Assignment:
Your Initial Post should occur in a timely manner (by the third day of the module for full timeliness points). Include the original questions along with your initial, informative post. Support your post with information from at least one reference and provide complete source information (so that your peers can find the article if they wish). Bring in your own personal experiences, as applicable.
Your Subsequent Posts: Read through responses by peers and post responses to at least two classmates’ posts. Bring in ideas/comments and/or research not mentioned yet.
Remember—To receive full credit in this forum, you need to post a minimum of three quality posts (your own initial post, and responses to two classmates). Only one outside source is needed (in the initial post). But in any post, if you borrow ideas/information from other authors, give them credit for their work.
