Management and Leadership are positions of authority that require conflict resolution, critiquing, conferencing and other communication. Cameras are now as small as a cell phone. Company surveillance is a part of the security systems that secure expensive equipment, as well as monitor employee behavior.

Washington Monthly’s November 2009 issue has an article about how London has about a million surveillance cameras.

‘Two years ago I warned that we were in danger of sleepwalking into a surveillance society,’ said the British information commissioner. ‘Today I fear that we are in fact waking up to a surveillance society that is already all around us’ (Malanowski, 2009).

And employees in large and small companies are waking up to surveillance employment that is already all around us. Data bases that check the computer systems we use, some employment is terminated as a result of improper computer use.

Movies have been made that reflect the use of surveillance equipment to monitor crime, many years ago it did not seem as possible as it is. The police are not the only thing clocking your driving speed, so is a camera on the traffic light. Malls have cameras systems, some security TVs the customers can see. This new use of technology and advances in technology make the profession of surveillance available to individuals, an example is home security systems. Some homes have outside cameras that monitor the door and garage areas.

Other countries are more honest about the use of surveillance equipment. As Managers and Leaders we must stay up-to-date on surveillance abilities and protect individual’s rights. Management and Leadership also requires in some cases, becoming an advocate. Some surveillance use may be questionable.

TMSC International® Management & Leadership: How To Find Success In Corporate America

In corporate America individuals find success many different ways. Success is measured by the goals each individual sets. The environment we interact with may not be controllable, the real question is, “What can we control?”

Success is perceived by values. There are three views of perception:

  1. What we perceive
  2. What think others perceive
  3. What others really perceive

Literally perception is the forming of mental representations of the objects that give rise to sensory experiences.

Corporate America values:

  1. Education
  2. Training
  3. Employment
  4. Ownership
  5. Organizations
  6. Professional Associations and
  7. Developing Relationship

1. Education is standard internationally. High School, College and University, Graduate School, and Professional Schools (Doctor/Lawyer) are valued to measure success in Corporate America.

2. Training can include vocational training and company offered training. Not all employee training is required. Many companies have management training programs. continuing education is also valued for success, up to date information in your field profession, or organization helps to set you ahead of the competition.

3. Employment history is also a measure of success in Corporate America. I have been in vocational training education, college and university, and  educational training for over 13 years. Resume building is one of the “Keys” to success. A resume may also be used to monitor your progress, honors, and awards. Once I stopped my career to study to become a missionary. I was also working on my Doctorate, one day I looked at my resume and saw I had not received an award in 3 years. I said to myself, “Self, what have you done to get an award?” I started writing poetry and am now an International Best Poems and Poets of 2007 award winner. I received several other awards in poetry for years before that. A Resume is a good way to monitor your own progress.

4. Ownership is also valued for a measure of success in corporate America. Businesses, companies, houses, cars, cell phones, property, computers, and friends (HA! HA!).

5. Organizations are a measure of success in Corporate America. Many organizations have standard requirements for membership. This may also be a “Key” to success. When enrolled in field, profession, or vocational training programs, many times individuals can join organizations that would otherwise take years to qualify for. These organizations have professionals at the top of the fields and may offer mentoring opportunities.

6. Professional associations also are a measure of success in Corporate America. A professional association is specific to a field, profession, or vocation and require proof of education and training. Professional associations also offer mentoring opportunities.

7. Developing relationships, for a full article go to: Maintaining Relationships

In conclusion, education, training, employment, ownership, organizations, professional associations, and developing relationships are “Keys” to success in Corporate America.
