Research suggests that there are typically two different leadership roles that are held by different individuals. Instrumental leadership is leadership that emphasizes the completion of tasks by a social group. Group members look to instrumental leaders to “get things done”. Expressive leadership, on the other hand, is leadership that emphasizes the collective well-beings of a social group’s members. Expressive leaders are less concerned with the overall goals of the group than with providing emotional support to group members and attempting to minimize tension and conflict among them。
Instrumental leaders are likely to have a rather secondary relationship to other group members. They give others and may discipline group members who inhibit attainment of the groups goals. Expressive leaders cultivate a more personal or primary relationship to others in the group. They offer sympathy when someone experiences difficulties and try to resolve issues that threaten to divide the group. As the difference in these two roles suggest, expressive leaders generally receive more personal affection from group members; instrumental leaders, if they are successful in promoting group goals, may enjoy a more distant respect。
Nowadays, some universities give students the right to choose who teaches some of their classes. This has led to some debate over whether students should be given this much power.
There are several factors that students consider when choosing a lecturer, including the teaching style of the lecturer, the lecturer’s academic background, and the lecturer’s reputation among students. The ideal lecturer is one who has an interesting teaching style, a diverse academic background, and a good reputation among students.
There are both positive and negative aspects to allowing students to choose their lecturers. Giving students the choice encourages them to take ownership for their classes, and also puts pressure on teachers to improve their teaching quality.
However, the factors that students consider might not be the ones that lead to the highest quality of education. Schools might end up with lecturers who teach interesting classes without much content.
I'd like to write to share my opinion on the reemployment of laid-off workers which is the topic from last week.
We all know that the market economy has brought China problems as well as benefits. One of the major problems is that of finding new jobs for laid-off workers. The problem is quite serious as the workers are mostly middle-aged and poorly equipped with the computer technology, coupled with the already competitive job market for new college graduates every year.
Still we can manage to find some solutions to it. To begin with, priority should be given to the expansion of the service industry because the service sector can create a great number of positions with few restrictions on age, education, and skills etc.. In addition, the laid-off workers have to update their skills to meet the demands of society. Just as the old saying goes, "God helps those who help themselves."Lastly, they should stop relying on the state and throw away any worries about their face while doing some odd jobs such as washing dishes at restaurants or sending newspapers to households.
As a college student still on campus, I realize that I have the great chance and responsibility to prepare myself better for future work, like learning English harder and taking computer courses more seriously. No one is entitled to idle time away.
