Hi,

Some questions to ask again...

1) What is a "passive-aggressive leadership behavior"?

2) Please explain this sentence. "Partnership harvests the potential of the team."

3) Pls explain. "The integrity is essentially at stake."

4) When people said "I have my back to you", what does he mean?

5) What is "The Partnership Imperative"?

6) What is a "leadership shadowing"?

7) Please give me some sample of "group facilitation skill", what does it exactly mean?

8) What is a "compressed workweek"? Pls give me some samples.

9) Pls explain this sentence. "A wise leader once told me to draw the target and get out of the way."

10) What is another way to say "Don’t check your brain at the door"?

Thank you.u.u.u. :wink:

(6). A potential student follows an old student all day along, sitting with him, eating with him, playing with him, to get to know about the school he is applying, this is called shadowing.

(8). Work 10 hours each day for 4 days, instead of the regular 8 hours for 5 days, for a total of 40 hours in a week, excluding weekends.

During a 2-week period, do eight 9-hour days and one 8 hour day, and get one day off, for a total of 80 hours in 2 weeks (10 work days), excluding weekends.

1. Passive-aggressive behavior is damaging an organization or unit very quietly, usually by failing to do good things rather than by doing bad things.
Passive-aggressives usually feel that they are not being treated fairly, so they find ways to make things work badly for eveyone else.

2. That means that people working together as real partners will maximize the skills and of the others on the team. Cooperation will lead to success.

3. More context is needed. It means that the integrity of some entity is at risk.

4. If this is literal, it means that one person's back is facing another person. If three people are sitting at a bar and the middle person turns to face the person on his right, he has his back to the person on his left.

5, 6, 7, ???????????????????????

8. A compressed workweek is one that is shorter than 5 days or 40 hours.

A four day week or five 6-hour days would be examples.

9. That means that the boss should set goals for his workers and then let them do their work. Often, the boss feels compelled to micromanage his employees -- control every step.

10. Don't check your brain at the door = We expect you to think when you are working.

11. A powerful realization is having a profound idea or learning experience.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your clarification. It helps me a lot!! Well, I have something to share with you.

Actaully I'm quite confused about the meaning of "integrity". From dictionary, it can mean "honest", "united" or "strong belief". From the context, it says "Integrity is about creating a set of operating values and then living true to them. Integrity lays the foundation of trust and respect." Does it imply "honest" or "straight-forward"?

Re the question no. 3, the context is "People who don't do what they say, they are going to do are showing a lack of respect for the rest of us. Their integrity is essentially at stake."

So, I think that it might say that people who don't do what they say they are going to do, they have no integrity or they are not honest. Can??

:(

5. The Partnership Imperative is the title. The context of that chapter is talking about partnership. I don't know why the author used the word "Imperative". This word is not used in this chapter at all.

:shock:

Yes. When people repeatedly fail to follow through on their promises, they are not being honest. People will learn not to trust such people. Integrity includes those issues of honesty and trustworthiness.

:shock:

In that case, the word "imperative" means that partnership is extremely important for an organization to be successful.

One more question about the word "affirmation". In this book, it said the "affirmation" is important to let people know that the things they do are important. It seems to thank or praise when they are doing good. Why don't they use the word "praising" or "appreciation" instead. Any idea? :wink:

I don't know why they chose that particular word. One could say that affirmation is broader than praise, thanks, and appreciation, and it includes all three.
