Then, list an alternative to your value (i.e., How would someone else disagree or have a different perspective?). Finally, briefly explain how each value (i.e., your own and the alternative) impacts managerial responsibilities. For your response, include any value and alternative except for those in the table of United States Values and Possible Alternatives.

Your response should be at least 150 words in length. All sources used must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
