The first mover advantage applies particularly in crisis situations. Whoever is first to define the crisis, the motives, and the next steps typically wins.
Consider an example from the book David Letterman first mover step as he is been blackmailed by one of the CBS news producer Hildebrand. Letterman had used the first mover advantage effectively. He took the initiative and kept it. He defined the crisis as an extortion attempt. He defined his motives as self-protection and the protection of his friends and family. Example from the real life events On February 2014 C.V. announced it would no longer sell cigarette and any of its stores C.V. got a lot of press coverage and also got a lot of good will from customers who don’t want to shop.
The other two competitors Rite Aid and Walgreen would get benefits but if they were discontinued the cigarettes wouldn’t get the same press that C.V. got. 5. What is disproportional? Cite an example from the book and an example from real life recent events. Disproportional states that not all actions are equivalent, and there isn’t necessarily a one-to-one stimulus response relationship. Example different words have different impact and because communication is a process of mutual adoption, of move and countermen, the leader needs to consider the response his or her words are likely to provide.
Disproportional applies not only to what one says but also to when one says it. Example in real life is educated vs. literate people has different impact education teaches us what to write and what to read where literacy teaches us how to write and how to read.

Triage Team Subject of meeting is to clear backlogs in a week. Discussion:
This is my project experience which influenced me a lot. In the meeting Leader took a decision to clear all the backlog of the issues in a week where usually it takes ;’0 weeks to finish the task. Leader should be up front person who can solve problem or stand and guide you when you are in problem. We are five people in the meeting. The presenter has no impact and was very clear while assigning the task to the team. Now it is a challenge to the team to complete the task in time. Leader started motivation, People can be motivated by forces such as beliefs, values, interests, fear, and worthy causes.
Some of these forces are internal, such as needs, interests, and beliefs. Others are external, such as danger, the environment, or pressure from a loved one. There is no simple formula for motivation -? you must keep an open viewpoint on human nature. There is a complex array of forces steering the direction of each person and these forces cannot always be seen or studied. In addition, if the same forces are steering two different people, each one may act differently. Knowing that each person may react to different needs will guide your decisions and actions in certain situations.
