TMSC International® Management & Leadership: Personifcations of Self

We use names to decribe behaviors. For example:

  1. Formal Names for Work: Mr., Mrs., Ms.
  2. Informal Name for social: First name, nick names.

We use titles to describe behaviors. For example:

  1. At work: Boss, Supervisor, line staff
  2. Family and Friends: Peer, Aunt-uncle…, organization members.

The names and titles trigger individuals to behave in a manner that is defined by a role we have.

Each of these names and titles have sets/sects of behaviors that we place with them.

Confucius the philosopher talks about roles and how they impact life, behaviors, and relationship.
