  6. Discuss why attempts at stress management interventions appear to be concentrated disproportionately on reducing the effects, rather than reducing the presence of stressors at work.

    Such interventions can include job redesign and work-load reduction. Secondary interventions are more reactive in their purpose and concentrate more on reducing the effects or severity of stressors to the individual, using stress management training for example which can help an individual cope more efficiently. Tertiary interventions are also reactive and often include a treatment programme such as an Employee Assistance Programe which often includes couseling and other forms of health promotion for individuals with existing problems. Tertiary interventions are similar to secondary interventions in the way they focuss on the individual and do not attempt to reduce the presence of stressors.

  7. Is Leadership Nature or Nurture? Discuss with reference to theories whilst critically evaluating available evidence.

    There lies a multitude of research on the subject of leadership. The underlying topic of discussion in most of the research is whether leadership is influenced by nature or nurture. Are there people predestined for leadership from birth or can people be trained and moulded into leaders? When discussing this, authors may choose to focus on role occupancy, which is whether people occupy positions of leadership in organisations (Arvey et al. 2006), or the effectiveness of those already in leadership positions. With the debate in mind, role occupancy seems to be a better fit as it provides more insight on whether those thought destined to lead actually take up leadership positions.
