Yet, we treat each other with subjective actions depending on the facts and personal feeling. The treatment of people should be held to the heavenly standard regardless of whether they are different or the same. This is especially important in my current position and place of employment.

Creating a Positive Classroom Culture - Effective Teaching strategies In order to be an effective teacher there needs to be an understanding that we all learn differently, this means that no single teaching strategy is effective for all students/learners all the time. This makes teaching a complex process because you need to understand and meet the requirements of all of your learners. Students learn best when they aren’t asked to simply memorise information but when they form their own understandings of what is being taught. When a student has successfully learnt a new idea they are able to then intergrate this information with their previously learnt information and make sense of it....   [tags: Building a Positive ClassroomClimate]

Critic of The Power of a Positive No - We are all influenced by our human nature. Indeed, very often, our natural traits affect more than we would the decisions we think we make rationally. One of these human tendencies is to agree with our neighbor and to some extend, to avoid conflicts with individuals that we know. In other words, we are intrinsically inclined to say yes, especially if we praise the relationship. Even if negotiators are fully aware of this weakness, they cannot get rid of it. On the contrary, when they strongly desire a positive outcome to an exciting or a challenging negotiation, they might yield to any agreement, just to close the deal....   [tags: william ury, positive yes, negotiations]

Why Positive Thinking Is Bad For You - As the famous American industrialist and businessman, Henry Ford, once said, “Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right” (qtd. in BrainyQuote), but disputes have recently popped up concerning the truth of that statement.

In either example, it's advice that's being given to help somebody out. The other way I mentioned was advice given by actions.
