    Hot Topics to be discussed in class:

    I.  APPROACHES TO LIFE, OPTIMISTS AND PESSIMISTS:

    Note: never try to ascertain the truth, because there rarely exists one. Don’t impose you point of view on the students, because it will hinder the discussion. Encourage each point of view.

    Resources:

    1) Two sales reps were sent to Africa from the USA to investigate the shoe market and provide exhaustive reports on possibilities.

    Naturally, they saw the same, but their reports were different:

    "They all go barefoot. There are no possibilities,” wrote one of them.

    "There are hige possibilities, because they all go barefoot,” wrote the other.

    2) The usual "the glass is half-full/half empty. You may extend on it, proposing to imagine, what different people might say about this. For example, a cynic will say: "who has drunk the other half?’A realist will say: "The liquid will not overflow because the liquid doesn’t reach the brims” etc.

    Questions to be discussed:

    1) Do both texts present the same attitude?

    2) Whose position is more realistic: that of a pessimist, or that of an optimist?

    3) Whom would you like to have for your CEO —an optimist or a pessimist?

    4) Can there be a balance between the both?

    5) What would you say if you lose job:

                       a) "I am ruined. I have lost everything.”

                       b) "That’s interesting. I now have new opportunities open for me.”

                       c)  Other options.

    6) Can it be dangerous to be surrounded only by optimists?

     

    II. PARKINSON’S LAW:

    "Work files up so as to take all the time you have to complete it, and employees multiply at a fixed rate, irrespective of the amount of work produced.”

    What are the possible interpretations of this phrase?

    1) Does it imply that people are usually not able to plan their time and human resources efficiently?

    2) Does it imply that a worker intuitively distiributes his time so as to fit the alloted time-span?

    3) Does it imply it is pointless to set a period of time for the amount of work?

    4) Is it easy to manage your own time at work?
