Definition of leadership
Every business owner and CEO wants to be a good leader, but how can you be a good leader if you don't know what leadership really is?Unfortunately, leadership doesn't have a one-size-fits-all definition. We all have our own ideas about what it means to be a good leader. For example, some people think leadership means guiding others to complete a particular task, while others believe it means motivating the members of your team to be their best selves. But while the definitions may vary, the general sentiments remain the same: leaders are people who know how to achieve goals and inspire people along the way (Hilmrich. B 2015).

Costco's CEO is the Normal Guy

Over the past five years Jim Sinegal has shepherded his company Costco to impressive returns. Costco's stock has doubled, and revenues continue to grow at an impressive rate.
Yet Sinegal might be better known as a man of the people at Costco. His name tag plainly says "Jim," he answers his own phone, and his plain office at the company headquarters doesn't even have walls. While other CEOs are spending tens of thousands of dollars just decorating their offices, Sinegal's pays himself a yearly salary of $350,00. Most CEOs of large company are paid in the millions. His simple contract is only a page long, and even includes a section that outlines how he can be terminated for not doing his work. So how did he come up with that number? He figured he shouldn't be paid more than 12 people working on the floor. His employee turnover rate is the lowest in the retail industry, over five times less than rival Wal-Mart. In an age where CEOs are paid in the millions and would never be seen in the "trenches," Jim Sinegal is an anomaly. And his workers love him…...

Consciousness

...or self-collapse, with a discrete conscious event. Sequences of OR events give rise to a "stream" of consciousness. Microtubule-associated-proteins can "tune" the quantum oscillations of the coherent superposed states; the OR is thus self-organized, or "orchestrated" ("Orch OR"). Each Orch OR event selects (non-computably) microtubule subunit states which regulate synaptic/neural functions using classical signaling. The quantum gravity threshold for self-collapse is relevant to consciousness, according to our arguments, because macroscopic superposed quantum states each have their own space-time geometries (Penrose, 1994; 1996). These geometries are also superposed, and in some way "separated," but when sufficiently separated, the superposition of space-time geometries becomes significantly unstable, and reduce to a single universe state. Quantum gravity determines the limits of the instability; we contend that the actual choice of state made by Nature is non-computable. Thus each Orch OR event is a self-selection of space-time geometry, coupled to the brain through microtubules and other biomolecules. If conscious experience is intimately connected with the very physics underlying space-time structure, then Orch OR in microtubules indeed provides us with a completely new and uniquely promising perspective on the hard problem of consciousness....

Effect on Multitasking in Classroom and Daily Life

...get. But when children use there electronics to become multitaskers it’s a completely different story. They become so fixated on what they were supposed to do, that they have to double the amount of time just to finish what they started. Doing homework while instant messaging, listening to music, and watching television becomes more of a concern for parents everyday. Family life is becoming a concern for children and how they act around there family member. A specific study by Anthropologist Elinor Orch, director of UCLA’s center on everyday lives of families. Because of the large scale of multitasking with children in there homes, they become so fixated with what they are doing they don’t give parents enough attention. The study was done over a four year periods which ranged from thirty two families in California. What they found was that most parents aren’t as occupied with multitasking and they don’t know how to relate to there children. Orch says, “We also saw how difficult it was for parents to penetrate the child’s universe. We have so many videotapes of parents actually backing away, retreating from kids who are so absorbed by whatever they’re doing.” This study shows exactly how multitasking can create negative affects on family life. Because of the large increase in multitasking with children it has a large affect on there family life. Not only because of school work but also how they act around there parents. The problem is the lack of......
