Tran Introduction The manager referenced in this paper is part of a non-profit organization, THINK  Together. This organization provides teaching and volunteering opportunities for those who are  interested in pursuing a career in helping children achieve their full potential. Rupa Patel is the  Manager of Volunteers at the San Bernardino location. Her job duties include planning events  and guiding those who are interested through the process of obtaining a volunteer position.   Personality  Personality plays a huge role in creating the culture within a business or any form of  organization. Employees who exude positivity may receive greater benefits such as a raise or a  higher position within the firm. Personality as defined by Allport is “the dynamic organization  within the individual of those psychophysical systems that determine his unique adjustments to  his environment.” Essentially, this is the sum total of ways in which an individual reacts to and  interacts with others. It is widely debated that personality can either be a product of our  environment or hereditary. As research has proven, personality is in fact hereditary. Our  personality traits are highly influenced by the genes passed down by our parents. In a broader  sense, personality has five basic dimensions, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness,  emotional stability and openness to experience. As a whole, these dimensions can either be  positive or negative. As a manager, Rupa Patel believes that having a friendly, outgoing  personality is highly beneficial to the organization. It creates a welcoming atmosphere that  nurtures positivity within the firm. Her extroversion allows her to do her job well as both a leader and a manager.  2

Tran Motivation  Motivation is defined as the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a  particular way. Being motivated at work leads to higher job satisfaction and lower rates of  employee turnover. Rupa strongly believes in the mission statement of THINK Together, which  is to “create opportunities for all kids to discover their passions and reach their full potential.” As the Manager of Volunteers the mission in itself motivates her to come to work because this is  something that she truly values as well. Just the action of being at work motivates her to do  exceptionally well because she is surrounded by a group of people who also value the mission  statement. She states “I like working with a group of people who support the mission. This

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
