 Discussion: Managing Emotions in the Workplace

Emotions can be highly advantageous to both individuals and the workplace. It can be incredibly positive to have energetic and enthusiastic individuals in an organization, but it can also be counter-productive and destructive. 

Initial Post

Assess what emotions “are” and the potential damage they can create in the workplace. Then, most importantly, offer two (2) strategies supervisors and managers can teach employees to use to control their most destructive emotions better and describe how supervisors can best train their employees in using those strategies.
Post your initial response by Wednesday, 11:59 pm ET.

Response Post

Read through the post of your peers and select a minimum of two to discuss the impact technology has on how our emotional responses and personality are expressed. Your responses are due by Sunday, 11:59 pm ET.


It is important that you review the Discussion Rubric and read the Discussion Posting Guide. These documents lay out the basis for how you should engage in discussions and how you will be evaluated.
All discussions combined are worth 20% of your final course grade.

Discussion Scenario

In this module’s discussion activity, you will investigate these areas of corporate finance as you examine
basic financial statements for Etsy (ETSY), an online retailing e-commerce platform. Etsy, which was
formed in 2005, held its initial public offering in 2015, and we can thus think of Etsy as a new, publicly
traded firm. Etsy has experienced rapid growth (Egan, 2015; Securities and Exchange Commission, n.d.).
It is also the largest certified socially-responsible company, or B Corporation, to go public in the United
States (Schweiger & Marcus, 2015; Sweeney, 2013). Benefit corporations expand the obligations of
boards legally, requiring them to consider environmental and social factors, as well as the financial
interests of shareholders. This gives directors and officers the legal protection to pursue a mission and
consider the impact their business has on society and the environment. An enacting state’s benefit
corporation statutes are placed within existing state incorporation codes so that existing code applies to
benefit corporations in every respect, except where explicit provisions unique to the benefit corporation
form have been included. Directors are required to balance stockholders’ interests, interests of those
materially affected by the corporation’s conduct, and a specific public benefit(s) identified in the firm’s
certificate of incorporation. Prior to engaging in this discussion, please review the Management
Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) section of Etsy’s Annual Report to Shareholders, and other research or
materials of your choosing to become familiar with Etsy. Etsy’s financial statements are provided, for
your convenience. You may also visit Yahoo Finance, and type Esty’s ticker symbol (ETSY) into the search
box, to investigate more recent activity, however your answers here should address financial statements
that are provided for your use.

Asset Management is the act of expanding all out abundance over the long haul by procuring, keeping up with, and exchanging ventures that can possibly increase company value. Asset Management experts  perform this help for small and big companies. They may likewise be called portfolio administrators or financial consultants. Many work freely while others work for a venture bank or other financial establishment.
The Accounts Payable Turnover formula demonstrates transient liquidity and shows the rate at which the organization can pay its suppliers. ETSY is somewhat higher than Amazon in 2015 yet had an altogether higher proportion in 2014 and 2013 showing ETSY pays its debt more rapidly than Amazon.
It is calculated Purchases = Cost of revenue + Ending inventory – Starting inventory Accounts payable turnover ratio = Total purchases / Average accounts payable

Profitability ratios are financial metrics used by analysts and investors to measure and evaluate the ability of a company to generate income relative to revenue, balance sheet assets

 during a specific period of time. They show how well a company utilizes its assets to produce profit and value to shareholders. Leverage ratios. A leverage ratio is any of a few financial measurements that express how much capital comes as debts (loans) or surveys the capacity of an organization to meet its monetary obligation. ETSY has a comparative Debt ratio as Amazon yet is roughly multiple times lower in the obligation to value proportion. This shows Amazon is utilizing influence to buy resources at a pace of 3:1 looked at to ETSY.
Debt to equity ratio = Total Debt / Total Equity
Debt ratio = Total Debt / Total Assets
A high ratio indicates that the bulk of asset purchases are being funded with debt.
Amazon is a proper optimistic friend for Etsy in that it gives a positive financial good example. Amazon’s consistent ROE is something exceptionally alluring to financial backers. ETSY can likewise be glad that their Accounts Payable Turnover Ratio has been practically twofold Amazon’s in 2014 and 2013. The recent drop in 2015 ought to be investigated further to assess the reason. Ultimately, ETSY can see that utilizing more influence is entirely conceivable while going on with a comparable Debt Ratio as this is the thing is noticed right now in Amazon.
