Misconceptions about emotional intelligence: Deploying emotional intelligence in one’s life dimensions
Anobé Badenhorst,Dawie Smith
South African Journal of Human Resource Management , 2007, DOI: 10.4102/sajhrm.v5i3.146
Abstract: Emotional intelligence (EI) has become a buzz-word over the past ten years, yet misconceptions with regard to the concept abound. This leads to confusion among the general public, the scientific community, as well as to unfounded claims being made as to what the development of EI can accomplish in a person’s life. In this article the aim is to clarify the concept EI by making a sharper demarcation between the Emotional Life Dimension and the other life dimensions. Based on this clarification, the conceptualisation of EI in the literature is reviewed in more depth.
Conceptualisation of the spiritual life dimension: A personal and proffessional leadership perspective
Dawie Smith,Marianne Louw
South African Journal of Human Resource Management , 2007, DOI: 10.4102/sajhrm.v5i1.104
Abstract: The focus of this article is a conceptualisation of the spiritual life dimension of the human being. The central perspective or approach is the Personal, Interpersonal and Professional Leadership (PiPL) perspective developed by Smith. PiPL is a holistic wellness perspective that includes the personal, interpersonal and professional contexts of the individual’s life, and considers the anthropological characteristics, existential realities and phenomenology that humankind is faced with. PiPL views the spiritual life dimension as the core of being human. In this article Smith’s PiPL perspective of the nature and manifestations of the spiritual life dimension in the existential world will be explored.
A Personal, Interpersonal And Professional Leadership (PIPL) Model Of Executive Facilitation
Derek Verrier,Dawie Smith
South African Journal of Human Resource Management , 2005, DOI: 10.4102/sajhrm.v3i1.53
Abstract: The focus of this article is to present an empirically-based model of Executive Facilitation based on the Personal, Interpersonal and Professional Leadership (PiPL) paradigm. PiPL is a holistic, wellness perspective that includes the personal, interpersonal, and professional contexts of one’s life, and considers the anthropological characteristics and certain existential realities that humankind is confronted with. The executive facilitation model is based upon the current PiPL theoretical framework, emerging streams of organisational theory, the work of classic management gurus, typical problems of executives, and various current executive facilitation models.
Towards a methodology for the use of geo-information technology in disaster assessment
Dawie van Vuuren
Jàmbá : Journal of Disaster Risk Studies , 2006, DOI: 10.4102/jamba.v1i1.6
Abstract: Disaster assessment entails the description of disaster events and their impact on human lives, property and the environment. Information is a vital component of this process, and geo-information technology in particular should have a key role in this regard.
In vitro measurement of tibiofemoral kinematics after patient-specific unicompartmental knee replacement  [PDF]
Dawie van den Heever, Cornie Scheffer, Pieter Erasmus, Edwin Dillon
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2012.512091
Abstract: It is suggested that unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR) offers the potential to restore normal knee kinematics better than total knee replacement (TKR) because of retaining the cruciate ligaments, and better preservation of the overall geometry. It was hypothesized that patient-specific UKR would restore normal knee kinematics even better because of a customised articular shape. A comparative kinematics study was conducted on three cadaver limbs using two different test setups, a loaded ankle rig and an unloaded ankle rig. Kinematics was compared between a patient-specific UKR and a conventional fixed-bearing UKR. Both the UKRs showed similar kinematic patterns to the normal knee using both the test apparatus. The patient-specific UKR showed good results and with the other benefits it shows potential to dramatically improve clinical outcomes of knee replacement surgery.
Factors of Acceptance for Mobile Learning in Corporate Settings: An Empirical Investigation in Banking Industry  [PDF]

Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2013.55015
Abstract: Due to the proliferation of mobile technology and devices like smartphones and tablet PCs into our daily lives, m-learning attracts also more attention in professional training in enterprises. Derived from these statements, this research paper is focused on the following question: what are acceptance factors for m-learning (mobile learning) in the organizational setting? The paper analyzes a real experience in m-learning for training the banking personnel in an international banking institution in Turkey. For this purpose, a mobile virtual learning environment called as mFOR@ was developed and implemented, which was designed to support the training and development process for employees using Pocket PCs. The participants of the training activity (13 professionals) evaluated the m-learning experience via a semi-structured interview; all the content and interactions within mFOR@ were analyzed via content analysis. As a basis for a successful implementation in professional training in enterprises, the acceptance by decision makers and the learners is critical. That is the reason why I present a qualitative analysis of acceptance and the perceived value of m-learning in a corporate setting.
Behind the Scenes with a Video Training Platform: The Challenges of Researching the Provision of Open Educational Resources  [PDF]

Advances in Internet of Things (AIT) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ait.2013.34009

Video training platforms are now being implemented on a large scale in organizations. In this paper, I look at a video training platform including open educational resources available for many employees with varying patterns and motivations for use. This has provided me with a research challenge to find methods that help other practitioners in the field understand and explain such initiatives. I describe ways to model the research and identify where pressures and contradictions can be found, drawing on a reflective view of my own practice in performing the research. Open educational resources are defined as technology-enabled educational resources that are openly available for consultation, use and adaptation by users for non-commercial purposes [1]. The bank subject to this case study has been the first organisation in Turkey that provided open educational resources for all its employees. The video platform (called “For @ Tube”) provides users with over 100 video lectures drawn from reputable universities around the world including Yale and Harvard. Other learning tools such as discussion forums, blogs and traditional e-learning courses have been made available to the users on the e-learning platform called “For @” since 2006. In this paper, I aim to introduce the new video training platform (“For @ Tube”) and outline some of the main research issues surrounding such an

The integration of intrapreneurship into a performance management model
Thabo WL Foba,Dawie de Villiers
South African Journal of Human Resource Management , 2007, DOI: 10.4102/sajhrm.v5i2.114
Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the feasibility of using the dynamics of intrapreneurship to develop a new generation performance management model based on the structural dynamics of the Balanced Score Card approach. The literature survey covered entrepreneurship, from which the construct, intrapreneurship, was synthesized. Reconstructive logic and Hermeneutic methodology were used in studying the performance management systems and the Balanced Score Card approach. The dynamics were then integrated into a new approach for the management of performance of intrapreneurial employees in the corporate environment. An unstructured opinion survey followed: a sample of intrapreneurship students evaluated and validated the model’s conceptual feasibility and probable practical value.
Gesondheid: 'n realistiese perspektief

Health SA Gesondheid , 1996, DOI: 10.4102/hsag.v1i1.288
Abstract: This article presents a realistic perspective on the definition of health. Debates in tins article include amongst others the World Health Organization's definition on health and the'7 Nursing for the Whole Person " health definition." Opsomming Die term gesondheid was nog altyd moeilik om te definieer, omdat daar soveel uiteenlopende beskouiings is oor wat die begrip gesondheid behels. *Please note: This is a reduced version of the abstract.
