The first trait is extroversion, which is a trait that indicates a person’s outgoing, talkative, sociable, and assertive. They perform well in sales or managerial jobs. (p. 68) Emotional stability is an individual who can be calm, relax and secure. (p. 68) Agreeableness is an individual who is trusting, kind, forgiving, affectionate, and courteous. (p. 69) These are the people that care for others and enjoy helping and assisting others who are in need of help. Conscientiousness is a trait where a person is dependable, organized, thoughtful, and responsible. Also, they persevere and like accomplishing things. It is mentioned that conscientiousness is “closely linked to job performance”. (p. 69) Openness to experience, are the individuals who are open-minded, creative, curious, and eager to learn new things and new experiences. (p. 69) I believe my top personality trait would be openness to experience because I like to learn new things and experiences and from that, I grow and develop as a person and a leader. But my least trait I have would be extroversion even though I like making friends and meeting new people. The two leaderships are transactional and transformational leadership. Transactional leadership is a style which helps follower identify what must be done to accomplish the goal. (p. 420) They also rely on organizational structures and policies, and they supervise everything and make sure that everything is followed. Transactional leaders use rewards to motivate the followers. On the other hand, transformational leadership motivates followers to work for goals instead of short-term self-interest and achievements. (p. 422) Transformational leaders focus on a vision that motivates the follower to work harder. An important characteristic of a transformational leader is charisma. It allows the leader to connect and communicate well with people which promotes diversity and inclusion and trust within the organization. Lastly, they can promote the importance of teamwork and collaboration.

I believe that extroversion is the one of the Big Five Personality Traits I possess the most. The particular reason I chose this trait is because I tend to be very talkative to others to understand the environment and make everyone feel at ease. Friends are easy to make in a different environment for me so this is the reason why I chose extroversion. I believe that the one I possess the least is agreeableness. According to the text, people posses the agreeableness trait tend to be softhearted, forgiving, and trusting. Individuals high in agreeableness are usually good at customer service and teaching, personally I have no patience for either of them. (pgs.74-75)Transactional leadership is a leader who helps followers identify what must be done to accomplish the desired results while a transformational leader motivates followers to work for goals instead of short-term self interest and for achievement. Both leadership roles are very important to their followers but they both focus directly on different outcomes. Transactional leadership mainly focuses on short term success and their followers desired results. This means that once they get their desired results they are on their own after they get the results they strived for. Transformational leaders mainly focuses on the future goal instead of short term satisfaction. This meaning that instead of focusing on short results, its main focus is their goals and future success.

(2017). International management: Managing across borders and cultures (9th ed.). Boston: PearsonIf BP have employed social responsibility the prevention of oil spills would be gone. They would have added more warning signs to the BP working area so that it would have stop disasters. I think that if there were government regulators to monitor the area then the crude oil will be gone. BP should implement and encourage government safety policies so that they will not have this problem.I think that if big business should do good for the community the same way that the community is good to big business. “In other words= big business should do good for the community the same way that the community is good to big business.” BP needs us (the public) to purchase their gasoline or they will expire. It give the bp businesses to practice integrity when working with the public and this includes safety. The most important thing that BP can help everyone would be safety because it would keep people safe and using good morals the BP would be a better place for employees, wildlife, and society.”Safety must become a way of doing things in the organization to be enforced by all staff and employees. By keeping people safe and using good morals, companies like BP can make a better place for employees, wildlife, and society.”the benefits of using a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) for BP would be: “Improved access to capital, secured license to operate revenue increases cost decreases, risk reduction, increase in brand value improved customer attraction and retention, improved reputation and improved employee recruitment, motivation, and retention.” (International management pg 46).The lack of social responsibility affected BP reputation would be that it would decrease access to capital, secured license to operate revenue decrease, cost increases, risk increases, decrease in brand value decrease customer attraction and retention Decrease reputation and decrease employee recruitment, motivation, and retention.

Clearly, not only did greed play a huge role in the defectiveness of the rig, but pure negligence is also a significant factor. The oil tycoon would eventually lose $100 billion in firm value, have a severely tarnished reputation, and a huge lack of trust from the public all for a measly $2 million dollar part that would have been essential in preventing such a devastating disaster. I remember when this happened and more vividly the outrage from not only the people in the local area but the world. People began to look at other firms and how they were participating in corporate social responsibility and whether or not it shouldn’t be considered voluntary but rather a mandatory practice.In my opinion, each industry should be watched, inspected and punished if strict guidelines are not followed to enforce environmental protections, human rights and workers wellbeing’s, etc. There is a reason why OSHA (Occupation Safety and Health Administration) is such a driving force that is fear in the manufacturing and construction industries, they are here to protect individuals and to institute safe work places. But on the other hand, the oil industry gets massive subsidies that allow them to “get away” with more violations and to operate more secretly, and not to mention, oil is a huge and profitable industry and the government is equally liable. The long-term effects of a stained reputation on BP’s image and business practices will be felt for years to come even though it has already been more than a decade. I have wondered if they have recovered the lost capital, something that they can easily get back, but what was lost in terms of trust and the destruction of the environment will be a continuous fight to restore.
