Instruction for my homework.

1. Watch the Ted-talk:  Susan Colantuono: The career advice you probably didn’t

2. Analyze the logic of the video (s) by completing the following

a. The main purpose of this video is _____. (Here you are trying to state as accurately as possible the author’s purpose for writing the article. What was the author trying to accomplish?)

b. The key question that the author is addressing is _____. (Your goal is to figure out the key question that was in the author’s mind when he or she wrote the article. What was the key question the article addressed?)

c. The most important information in this video is _____. (You want to identify the key information the author used, or presupposed, in the article to support his or her main arguments. Here you are looking for facts, experiences, data the author is using to support his or her conclusions.)

d. The main inferences/conclusions in this video are _____. (You want to identify the most important conclusions the author comes to and presents in the article.)

e. The key concept(s) we need to understand in this video is (are) _____. By this concept, the author means _____. (To identify the concept, ask yourself: What are the most important ideas that you would have to understand to understand the author’s line of reasoning? Then elaborate briefly on what the author means by these concepts.)

f. The main assumption(s) underlying the author’s thinking is (are) _____. (Ask yourself: What is the author taking for granted that might be questioned? The assumptions are generalizations that the author does not think he or she has to defend in the context of writing the article, and they are usually unstated. This is where the author’s thinking logically begins.)

g. If we take this line of reasoning seriously, the implications are _____. (What consequences are likely to follow if people take the author’s line of reasoning seriously? Here you are to follow the logical implications of the author’s position. You should include implications that the author states, if you believe them to be logical, but you should do your best thinking to determine what you think the implications are.)

h. If we fail to take this line of reasoning seriously, the implications are _____. (What consequences are likely to follow if people ignore or reject the author’s reasoning?)

i. The main point(s) of view presented in this video is (are) _____. (The main question you are trying to answer here is: What is the author looking at, and how is he or she seeing it? For example, in this book, we are looking at education and seeing it as involving the development of intellectual skills. We also are looking at learning as the responsibility of students.)

From a to i, please see the sample’s attachment to the document.  (each section at least 3 sentences but you can write more on c and e section).  Please DO NOT paraphrase the sample.

3. Then you have to write 2 strengths (one or two sentence(s) for each) and 2 weaknesses (one or two sentence(s) for each) from your analyzed critical thinking of the video ted-talk.

4. Then feedback your analysis and the specific critical thinking concepts that could strengthen your analyzed critical thinking. (100 words)

Thank you so much for your help.


The Logic of Susan Colantuono: The career advice you probably didn’t get. 

A.    The main purpose of this video is to communicate that a greater focus needs to be placed on the “missing 33%” (Colantuono, 2013), of a 3-part leadership model discussed. Also, how this 33% differs for men and women in the workplace and steps that can be taken to increase the likelihood of succeeding as a leader for both women and businesses’.  Additionally, the purpose of the video is to showcase where and when women can take that missing piece and implement it.

B.     The key question that the speaker is addressing is “why are there so many women mired in the middle, and what has to take them to the top?” (Colantuono, 2013). The statistics show that 50% of middle managers are women, but only a third of that number go on to senior level management.

C.     The most important information in this video is as follows. First, we are introduced to the 3-part leadership model that Colantuono (2013) discusses.  It says, “use the greatness in you…to achieve and sustain extraordinary outcomes…to engage the greatness in others.” Colantunono (2013) goes on to say that although all three of these parts are important, in order to succeed as a leader in your organization, the most important part is the “to achieve and sustain extraordinary outcomes.” Breaking the part down further, Colantunono says that the skills in this part are characterized as “business, strategic, financial acumen” (2013). In other words, what are you doing as a leader within your organization that shows an understanding of the business, a comprehensive knowledge of both strategy and financial that will advance the business forward. This is the part of the leadership model that women are missing in order to advance. Additionally, the speaker discusses the transitional stages where this part of the model most often takes place. The other two parts of the model are important and they are typically the “conventional advice” given to women. Things like setting goals, self-promotion, have a personal brand and being an effective communicator. Colantunono argues that these pieces of effective leadership are important to break though in the workplace, but usually happen between career start and getting to middle management. Once the transition could take place from middle management to a senior level, Colantunono (2013) is saying the focus needs to shift to “business, strategic and financial acumen.”

D.    The main conclusion in this video is that most of the advice being given to women in the workplace is not closing the gender gap. This is even the case when the performance and talent management systems within organizations focus “3-1” on the other two areas of the leadership model, rather than the importance of the “business, strategic and financial acumen” (Colantuono, 2013).

E.     A key concept discussed in the video is the importance of the transitional phases of both career and leadership. This is also a concept discussed in the article, Becoming a Leader: Early Career Challenges Faces by MBA Graduates by Beth Benjamin and Charles O’Reilly. The article discusses that an individual needs to “pay attention to crucial transition points” (2011).  Transitions “represented particularly critical moments in a young leader’s developmental journey” (2011). Transitioning from MBA graduate to real world application poses challenges that the authors underline. Benjamin and O’Reilly go on to discuss that transitions in the workplace can come in different forms. From individual contributor to a manager, then from manager to higher-level manager. All levels needing sound leadership skills to be most effective both through the process and in the new role. Susan Colantunono also discusses transitions in her TED talk, most specifically when women are looking to transition from middle to senior level management. Within that transition is when the emphasis needs to be placed on “missing 33%.”

F.      The main assumptions underlying the speaker’s thinking is regarding the fact that businesses are not doing enough to support women in both senior level leadership roles and placing emphasis early in one’s career to gain the skills needed for higher level advancement. She is assuming that all companies aren’t taking steps to advance these concepts.

G.    If we take this line of reasoning seriously, the implications are that more women in the workplace will be given opportunities to become senior level executives. Also, for businesses as a whole have a role to play to see proportional pools of women being considered for advancement. This is crucial given that the 50% of middle managers are women and businesses succeed when everyone is working toward the same goals.

H.    If we fail to take this line of reasoning seriously, the implications are that both the gender gap in senior level positions will continue to be there and that business may suffer with their “strategic alliance” (Colantuono, 2013), because everyone is not on the same page when it comes to the businesses, strategic and financial advancement of the company.

I.       The main points of view presented are the differences between men and women in senior level positions. The speaker’s view is that a more specific knowledge and application of leadership needs to be implemented in what is being focused on when looking at women’s career advancement. 

J.       The ways we could/should apply this concept be applied in contemporary global organizations is continuing the conversation both inside and outside of organizations. Like Colantuono said, “it is important for managers, both women and men to examine mindsets we hold…to make sure we are creating a level playing field for everybody” (2013). Additionally, holding CEO’s and board members responsible for acknowledging when the pool of candidates are not proportional and ask, “what are we doing about it?” (2013). Furthermore, Benjamin and O’Reilly (2011) discuss that MBA programs need to be diligent at teaching its students more than a “one-size-fits-all” leadership model. Instead, emphasizing a greater understating on what “needs to be taught as well as how leaders can be helped to learn” (2011).
