Ashton Deroy Writes “I heard this morning about the attack that left 5 dead near British Parliament from 680 News. This is deeply saddening and tragic news that we are still facing these acts of hate in 2017.”
” It takes a special kind of lunatic to say “I am going to make a statement of defiance by killing people with my car!” If you really feel that defiant don’t join a cult movement. Take up drinking… Like normal people!” – Satirical commentary on the above event.
Diana Skye writes: I was very saddened to hear about what happened in London. While there have been terrorist attacks all over Europe in recent years, the UK was largely spared from them. It just goes to show you are never completely safe from these heartless and selfish terrorists.
Even in Canada there have been attacks, notably the one in Ottawa in 2014 and the incident Ashton and I discussed above. That was when a terrorist attacker wielding a knife went into a military recruitment centre in Toronto and stabbed two soldiers. He also attempted to stab Ashton’s aunt who worked there. Fortunately none of the injuries were serious.
My thoughts go out to London and everyone affected by such senseless attacks.
Organizational Culture Study for Business Management Class.
Ashton Deroy Writes Now to move on to some cool Business School assignments I wanted to share with Blog readers.
What is Organizational Culture? According to works cited in the PDF Organizational culture is defined as, A set of values, beliefs & attitudes possessed by employees of a company.
The major players we found in Organizational culture were:
- Terrence Deal and Allan A.Kennedy – They proposed one of the first models of organizational culture. Terrence was a University professor at the University of California.
- Eric Sinoway – A writer who writes boldly for Harvard Business Review that top performers who hurt employee culture should be fired.
- James Wolfensohn – A former investment banker who said re-staffing management roles was the best way to change organizational structure in a company.

Below is a PDF on Organizational Culture.
One cool thing I found on the work for successful Organizational Cultures, is that they have a lot of affirmative action. A company wants to cut out the cancers so that the life that is the company can live with the highest quality. Alot this statement stems from the investment banker James Wolfensohn’s work in organizational culture structure in the investment banking section of finance.
On thing a professor repeats to me consistently is this. “You can’t soar with eagles, when you fly with chickens.” I apply this to work relationships, friendships & choice of romantic partners.
I have seen what being passive gets you from years of watching loved ones get screwed over by toxic relationships, friendships & relatives. So why bring that crap to work?
