Introduction A manager’s position entails operating a business with the intent of making profit  and admitting to the responsibilities of an organization’s success. Sieng Liem, a manager  of My Market and Liquor operates and manages a small store in the south side of Los  Angeles, California. Liem’s store retails alcoholic beverages and general items you would  commonly  find at a marketplace. Some of his responsibilities include store operations,  sales and record keeping, and dealing with customer services. His current occupation as a  manager has been an accumulation of experience throughout his life. Liem’s prior  profession was also a manager of a liquor store in Pennsylvania for seven years. Because  of his expertise in the business, he decided to search for employment in the same field  when he moved to California in 2004. Since then, his business has been booming and even  possesses the luxury of working only two weeks per month at the age of 45. Sieng Liem  has expanded his business in My Market and Liquor through utilizing key elements of  organizational behavior concepts as a top manager. Personality Sieng Liem is known for his empathetic, friendly, and hardworking personality.  Liem exhibits traits of a successful manager and is entirely devoted to his role. According  to the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality assessment test, he scored the traits  as being extraverted, the sensing type, thinking type, and judging type. This test measured  Liem to be an organizer that, “is realistically logical, analytical, and decisive; perfect for  business and mechanics” (Robbins and Judge, 124). The MBTI identified Liem as a person Lam2

who does best when dealing with business, which shows that becoming a manger was an  excellent choice for him. Through this test, it reveals both his strengths and weaknesses. A  positive aspect about his character is that he is “decisive in moving quickly to implement  decisions and focusing on getting results in the most efficient way possible”. However, he  is “forceful in implementing his plans” (The Myers & Briggs Foundation, 1). By  understanding these traits, Liem can use the MBTI as a valuable tool to guide him to  improve his business performances. Understanding Liem’s personality can help him

    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.
