In any organisation, either education or finance, the employee usually engaged in the sense of competition where they project their skills and competencies to prove that they are eligible for promotions than another employee. However, sometimes this competition turns into a fierce struggle of survival among employees and survival means anything will be permissible to survive the time. Similarly, this trend is also common in the teaching profession as well where teachers engage in aggressive behaviour to reach their higher goals, but sometimes this competition again leads to a survival mode where this struggle ended up in unethical behaviour. The question is what makes employees engage with this survival mode or in unethical conduct? Continue reading “When the Competition Between Employees Become Unethical Behaviour”
Why Do We Get Mad at People for No Reason?
By Ahmad Amirali
There are instances in our lives when we get so angry that we sometimes forget every single ethic of our lives. As a result of which we ended up in guilt for our entire lives.

Then I might not apply for that program because I don’t want to be rejected’. Later that day, I thought about that guy and questioned myself, why do we fear rejection? Rejection, either in relationships or in a career, is equally brutal for almost every person. Students fear failure in exams, teachers fear the failure of their lesson plans, and parents fear their children’s future decisions. We are all scared of being rejected, but what makes us fear such rejections? Continue reading “Why do we Fear Rejection?”
