-Discrimination Law Introduction
-Which companies must comply?
-What's considered Discrimination in the workplace

Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast - Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.

MBA Essential Tip:
There are instances when an employer does not have to comply with Discrimination Law. Bona Fide Occupational Qualifications (BFOQ) allow an employer to hire someone on the basis of their religion, sex, or national orgin if those factors are reasonably necessary to the normal operation of that business. This BFOQ defense is NEVER valid if discrimination is based on someone's race or skin color. The employer must show that a person's religion, sex or national origin excluded them from being able to perform the job they were denied.

"Law is order, and good law is good order"  -Aristotle (384-322 BC)

The topic of this show is an introduction to Title VII, the U.S. Discrimination Law. I'm not an attorney, but if you want an introduction to this important labor law, tune in to the podcast. You'll learn about your rights as an employer and as an employee.

You may be surprised to know that not all U.S. companies have to comply with this law.

-What creates Job Satisfaction?
-Differences between Jobs, Careers, and Callings
-Tips for higher Job Satisfaction

Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.

MBA Essential Tip:
  Pare down your daily To-Do list to only those tasks you really need or want to accomplish. If the list is too large, it can seem overwhelming and actually be a distraction.
  Get more accomplished by completing your most critical tasks early in the day. Most of us are more creative in the mornings. It's also usually a quiet time to think before the phone starts ringing. You feel so much more at ease during the day when you know important work has already been done!

"Whatever satisfies the soul is truth" -Walt Whitman (1819-1892)

-Organizational Behavior
-Job Performance components
-Types of Organizational Commitment

Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast - Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.

MBA Essential Tip:
Most companies are in business to make a profit. Is that also why employees work for companies, to bring home the bacon? To a large extent, yes. But many are also interested in a career that makes a difference. Great companies understand that work-life has to transcend a worker's monetary needs and provide them with a vision and purpose. Whether you are a top manager, owner, or at an entry level position, encourage the development of a purpose for your company that will elevate its reason for existence above monetary income. A common vision encourages teamwork and will get the best work from people. Determine what your product or service really does for your customers. How does it solve their problem(s) and why did they come to you vs. to your competition? This is the first step to establishing your company's higher purpose.

"Losers make promises they often break. Winners make commitments they always keep." -Denis Waitley
