We all have a right to basic knowledge (facts, information, descriptions, etc), but it is a privilege to be able to exercise our knowledge for the benefit of others. Epistemology is the study of knowledge in regard to its method and scope, and also how knowledge is acquired. Knowledge is power, and a prerequisite for wisdom. To assume knowledge, or take ones intelligence for granted is foolish and a waste. Embrace your knowledge, grow its base, and leverage it for the better.
1) leadership styles
Each of us display work styles that have been shaped by our past experiences and relationships. Our unique style is demonstrated in our personal or recreational time as well as our work time. We adopt styles that we have experienced to be normative and successful. Some of our behaviors at work can be explained through operant conditioning, as described by B.F. Skinner in studies dating back to 1938. We tend to repeat the behaviors that are successful, and we avoid those that are unsuccessful or generate negative experiences.
2) valuing time
Time is the most valuable type of currency in existence. It has universal value wherever we go, and can be used and spent in similar fashions wherever we are. For centuries, time has been a coveted treasure, and it is often the one thing we wish we had more of.
3) Managing time
It was the Greek philosopher Heraclitus who was known for his doctrine that change is central to the universe. Among his many writings, he stated that nothing remains the same and that everything changes. Now, nearly 2,500 years later managers in all aspects of business continue to philosophize about the best ways to understand and manage change. We could say that one thing has in fact remained unchanged, and that is our constant struggle to understand and manage change.
