1. What opportunities do you see as a result of the changes in our nation’s workforce?
Note: Both demographics and diversity will serve to drive the future workforce structure. How these factors are integrated into the overall business base will determine the ultimate outcome. Your opinion is a valued approach to a viable solution for future managers.
2. Identify someone you think is an effective leader. What traits and skills does this person possess that makes him or her effective?
Note: Since our class is focused on the business environment, let’s keep our examples in that sector. We need to stay away from the world of politics here and focus our thoughts on some really successful business leaders. These individuals can be local or national and may be involved in any phase of the business environment; wholesale, retail, manufacturing, service industry, etc.
