The person who seeks to change another person in a relationship basically sets the stage for a great deal of conflict.
~ Wesley Snipes ~

Very often we go into relationships with the idea that we can make somebody better. We set their flaws or shortcomings and take it upon ourselves to help them fix what is wrong. Our task in our relationship is not to fix one another. Our job is to love what we see and support one another in doing better. Fixing is telling what is wrong, why and how to fix it. Supporting is allowing us to make our own choices, being there if things go wrong and supporting us in doing better next time. Fixing is forcing us to do it their way when our way doesn’t work. Supporting is nurturing. Fixing is anger when things get rough. Supporting is knowing things will get better. Supporting is seeing us exactly as we are. Fixing is seeing in them what we refuse to see in ourselves.

I love and support you exactly as you are.

Let go!

When we believe we are losing control, we grab on tight. If we want to avoid pain, we hold on for dear life. When we are in fear of losing, looking bad or being abandoned, we tighten our grip. When our greatest fears come upon us, we clench our fist and teeth, close our eyes and hold on. We must learn how to let go. We have the capacity to live through any adversity if we let it go. We cannot stop time or destiny. Whatever is going to happen has already happened; we must learn how to see it through to the end. When we hold on, we prolong the pain. When we dig our feet in, we must be uprooted. When the time comes for growth and change, we must have the courage and faith to let go.

Whatever leaves my life makes room for something better.

If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.

Where do we get the idea that if a relationship or marriage ends, we have…...

Penn State Case

...ACC 7480 Penn State Case Leslie Erickson October 1, 2012 The Penn State Scandal reflects many failures of the governance system at all levels of the university and not only with in the Board of Trustees. As reported in the Freeh Report, chapter 1 (Key Findings); each school and large department of Penn State have their own Human Resources Staff. Amongst the individual Human Resources Departments if they hadn’t opted out; they were at least lazy with standard rules and procedures for implementing University Policies and rules (includes over 350 policies and procedures for which oversight and compliance is decentralized and uneven). In addition there was no centralized office, officer or committee to oversee compliance with laws, regulations, policies and procedures. Some departments even monitored their compliance issues with the very limited resources available to them from within the departments. The university Police Department was responsible for compliance with the Cleary Act which requires the university to collect crime statistics relating to designated crimes; including sexual offenses occurring on university property and make timely warning of certain crimes that pose an ongoing threat to the community and prepare an annual safety report to be distributed to the campus community. The Cleary Act also requires “Campus Security Authorities” (Coaches, athletes and directors) to report crimes to the Police Department. From 1991-2007 the university delegated......

Predictive Memo on Penn State Scandal

...The court will likely hold Penn State University is liable for negligence actions on the sexual harassment to young children by its former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Under the common law, negligence is defined as failure to exercise ordinary care and caution as would be expected by a reasonably prudent person. Therefore, in order to establish a cause of action in negligence, the plaintiff must show (1) a duty on the part of defendant, (2) a breach of that duty, and (3) an injury or damage proximately resulting from the breach. The first element that a duty on the part of defendant to protect the plaintiff is sufficiently met. According to the law, the owner or operator of a sport or recreation business owes a duty to keep the premises safe for all who enter the facility or premises. The incident occurred on Penn State campus. As the owner, the university is imposed a duty of care to individuals coming to the land. The second and third requirements, that the university breaches that duty and the breach was the proximate cause of children’s damages, are in question. The plaintiff will likely be able to charge that Penn State failed to exercise control over coaching staff. In loco parentis doctrine, the relationship between a student athlete and a school is unique and special. School authorities stand “in place of the parents” and the relationship involves a mutual dependence and control by colleges over student-athletes’ lives. Thus a heightened......

Penn State Scandal

...Penn State Scandal Everything was looking good for Joe Paterno and Penn State football as his football managing career rose with an overall record of 298-136-3 but in 2011, all that changed. Back in 2000 a janitor of Penn State witnessed Sandusky receiving oral sex from a young boy, the janitor reported what he saw to co-workers and his supervisor but none of these men reported these actions to authorities. It wasn’t until November 5, 2011 that Sandusky was arrested on a $100,000 bail and up to 40 criminal counts. ESPN were quickly in the scene to investigate and report the allegations on Sandusky. They quickly reported saying Sandusky was charged with more than 50 counts of child sex-abuse involving 10 boys he met through The Second Mile, a children's charity he founded. New York Times went on to report Sandusky has been accused of these charges before hand and action was never taken until now. 2 days after Sandusky’s arrest, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz stepped down from their positions, also being facing charges for not notifying the police for Sandusky’s actions. On December 16, 2011, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz were held for trial. "I don't remember any reports to me that it was sexual in nature," Mr. Curley told the grand jury, a statement prosecutors contend was a lie (Schmitz) Tim Curley allegedly said he did not report anything to the authorities because he felt a crime never occurred. This controversy......

Penn State Scandal

...Destructive Leadership and The Penn State Scandal: A Toxic Triangle Perspective Christian N. Thoroughgooda and Art Padillab a The Pennsylvania State University, Department of Psychology, 115C Bruce V. Moore Building, University Park, PA 16802; cnt105@psu.edu b The University of Arizona, Eller College of Management, Tucson, AZ 85721 Alderfer’s piece on the Sandusky/Penn State tragedy reminds us that leader-centric analyses, the norm in leadership studies, often miss the mark. Alderfer joins a growing list of writers who increasingly recognize that leadership consists of three key elements in a triangle: leaders, followers, and environments. The Penn State scandal highlights how a conducive environment, typified by centralized power and an absence of checks and balances, coupled with flawed leaders and the actual assistance or quiet submission of certain followers, can lead to disastrous outcomes. As Alderfer observes, leadership is a social, or group, process. Leadership success or failure depends on group results, and group results involve more than just leaders and their characteristics and actions. Yet, over three-quarters of articles in scholarly journals consistently overlook the role of organizational environments and followers (Porter & McLaughlin, 2006), focusing instead on leader traits and behaviors (Kaiser, Hogan, & Craig, 2008; Thoroughgood, Padilla, Hunter, & Tate, 2012). Why do so many articles and stories focus on leaders and neglect the two other crucial......

Penn Central Case Law Summary

...designate the city’s landmarks (and districts) as well as regulate changes made to these designated structures. Penn Central Transportation Company owned the Grand Central Terminal, which had been designated as a landmark under the application of the Landmarks Law in August of 1967. In January of 1968, Penn Central entered into a renewable 50-year lease with Union General Properties, Ltd. (a corporation of the United Kingdom) to allow UGP to construct a multistory office building in the air space above the terminal; UGP would pay Penn Central $1 million for each year of construction and $3 million each year after that. Penn Central and UGP jointly applied to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for permission to build the proposed office building atop the Terminal. The first plan, Breuer I, called for a 55-story building to be cantilevered above the existing façade, but was denied as the Commission thought a building of such great height would not only look outlandish on top of an 8-story historical landmark, but would also diminish the prominence of the landmark itself. The second plan, Breuer II Revised, called for a removal of the Terminal’s 42nd Street façade to build a 53-story office building, but was also rejected by the Commission, as it would destroy the exterior architectural features of the Terminal. After the rejection of their proposals, Penn Central and UGP filed suit against the City of New York, stating that the city, under the guise of the......

The Three Ball Sports at Central Penn College

...The Three Ball Sports at Central Penn College Having sports at Central Penn College can be a great idea. Volleyball, baseball, and softball should be offered at Central Penn College, so that students can keep themselves active. Playing sports keep students in shape and sometimes out of trouble; these sports can also be played by both boys and girls; Central Penn College should offer these three sports so that those students that want to go to college and cannot afford it can do so by earning a free scholarship to play and do what they like and at the same time get a degree.

Reflection - Penn State Student Drinking Behavior

...Reflection - Penn State Student Drinking Behavior The first two observations I made about the survey data were that college age drinking habits have not changed from year to year in a drastic way and students still tend to experience drinking and partying early in their college studies. About age 18 to 19 students transition from high school to this huge opportunity to be out from under the parental “house rules” for the first time in their lives. According to the Pulse survey, 83% of the 1,174 respondents were between the ages of 18 to 20 and 68.7% admitting to light to moderate drinking. These data points are not surprising to me. I think back to my initial college years and my own drinking habits and experiences. I grew up in a college town. Once, I entered college, I quickly learned a way to schedule my classes around evenings I knew I would want to socialize with fellow students which included drinking. I was a typical moderate drinker on weekends and drinking, even though I was under age, was an easy way to wind down and socially acceptable. I think this mentality still holds true with that age range of college students today. What changed for me and many of my friends by the time we were around 20 years of age (junior year) was our focus. We began to settle down into our studies or decide what our paths were going to be. For me, I began my own business and was engaged to marry and exited college. For many of my friends that continued on with......

Penn State Scandal

...The Penn State Scandal: Destructive Leadership Perspective The Penn State Scandal: Destructive Leadership Perspective Abstract The Penn State scandal stressed the involvement of key players in a web of deception, cover-up and sexual accusations of children. Those key players stressed in the case were Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno. Jerry Sandusky was accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15 year period. Sandusky was ultimately found guilty of these charges. Other well-known names, such as Joe Paterno, were arrested and charged with conspiracy because of their failure to report the child abuse. This scandal rocked the Penn State community. Mainly because their culture was driven by a strong college sports influence. Many people wondered how such a strong community of leaders could allow something so awful to happen for so long. Observers of the scandal tended to frame the events in terms of individuals behaving badly or irresponsibly (Alderfer, 2013). So many focus on the leaders involved and neglect to identify an organization as a whole when discussing issues. Many people will participate in the destruction of an organization whether knowingly or not. Why do so many fail to identify all the elements in leadership? What other factors besides leadership contribute to destruction of an organization? Many areas were researched in regards to the organizational leadership of this paper. This paper will evaluate the destructive leadership of Penn State as a......

Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal

...Since the beginning of time, the term power resonates on the way one controls or leads. However there is a distinctive difference in how one uses power and abuses power. Sadly, in the Penn State sex abuse scandal they both become one in the same. The Penn State sex scandal abuse was incident in which Jerry Sandusky, who was a former assistant football coach for Penn State. Sandusky was charged and convicted of multiple counts of sexual abuse of children. Sandusky would victimize his victims through his charity organization, The Second Mile. The Second Mile was a charity designed to help disadvantage boys from dysfunctional and broken homes but instead Sandusky had other plans. How rare and valuable can good leadership be in a Beuarcracy? Why didn’t leadership at Penn State take action for Sandusky’s behaviors? Using Max Weber’s Beauracracy Theory in this paper I will discuss organization behavior and what could have or should have been done to avoid the situation. How rare and valuable can leadership be in a Beuaracracy? Based off of Max Weber, he believed that a B was a type of administrative structure developed through rational-legal authority. Weber felt that the most important problem was not inefficiency or mismanagement but the increased power of, officials. (quote) His main view of a B was the system based on discipline. A Buearactic organization can be considered rational and that leads to efficiency. Efficiency in an organization comes through rationality and......

Penn State Ethics and Morals

...Penn State is an isolated, respected institution that often has done what it wanted. It has the power to ignore ethical issues, at least at times. This is not unique to Penn State but would be true of many institutions and people with great power. Both conscious desires to make money and maintain prestige, and unconscious denial served to maintain a child abuser, Jerry Sandusky, as a football coach for many years, with many victims. (Eisenman, 2013) Everything was looking good for Joe Paterno and Penn State football in 2011. The team was 8-1 and riding an emotional high. Then it all came crashing down. Back in 2001 a graduate assistant coach of Penn State wasn’t exactly sure what he saw but a former Assistant Coach named Jerry Sandusky was showering with a boy from his local charity. It sounded to him like horseplay but wasn’t sure so he went and reported it to the head coach Joe Paterno. The ensuing scandal brought down longtime coach Joe Paterno, who was fired by university trustees amid growing criticism that he should have done more to stop the alleged abuse.” (Marklein, 2011) McQueary changed his story saying he e-mailed his friends and colleagues, saying that he had stopped Sandusky from abusing the boy when he saw it and that he had also reported the abuse to police. The local and campus police denied his statements that brought him into deeper trouble. When he reported it to the coach he was so flustered he couldn’t even report correctly what he saw, so Coach Paterno...
