Researchers have verified the significant effects of organizational ambidexterity on the long-term development of firms. To understand knowledge accumulation and how it fosters performance, recent researchers have shifted their focus from organizational ambidexterity to individual ambidexterity. They have investigated knowledge accumulation, knowledge flow practices of top-down/bottom-up/horizon, knowledge flowing of seeking and offering in individual ambidexterity, however few researches have paid particular attention to knowledge seeking process in individual ambidexterity. Thus, based on their research trend, this paper investigates knowledge seeking process in individual ambidexterity and discusses such suggestions’ significances for overcoming limitations of organizational ambidexterity. Our aim is to draw the attention of managers to the contribution of employee (individual) ambidexterity to organizational ambidexterity. Particularly, it suggests four types of knowledge seeking process and each has two stages: Stage 1(core)+Stage 2(outside → own), Stage 1 (core)+Stage 2(outside → others), Stage 1 (core)+Stage 2(core → own), Stage 1(core)+Stage 2(core → outside). This suggestion makes management for organizational ambidexterity more flexible and requires less coordination work from top management.

After the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, China has actively adopted measures for epidemic control and prevention to block further spreading, and gained favorable effect in epidemic control. However, individual behaviors still may hinder prevention and control to certain degree and may affect psychological states of the surrounding people as well. In accordance with research findings of public emergencies as well as study and analysis on public health events, this paper sets up a model with four factors of information, risk, budget and effective prevention, and puts forward relevant assumptions. The questionnaire with Likert scale is designed in accordance with assumptions and former research findings, and offered to personnel and experts with regard to epidemic prevention and control for interview. This paper collects the questionnaire, applies SPSS25.0 software for statistical analysis, and verifies assumptions based on statistical results to get significant correlation and significant impacts among four factors. Then, corresponding suggestions and countermeasures are proposed in line with the conclusion.

Woodrow Wilson served as president of the United States for two consecutive terms before and after the first World War. As for Wilson's international political thought, the academic circles of international relations generally believe that it is the reflection of the realistic interests and expansion objectives of the United States, but some scholars emphasize that Wilson's diplomacy can not be simply equated with the realistic policy of the United States. It is undoubtedly necessary to study the formation and personality characteristics of Wilson's international political thought for a correct understanding of Wilson's doctrine and diplomacy in this period. This paper combs and evaluates the views of scholars at home and abroad by reading the relevant research on Wilsonianism.

The opinion that female leaders are not as efficient as male leaders was not true nor institutionalized (Waring, 2003). Leadership attributes were dominated by males in the field of leadership studies is common to see. There have been prior meta-analyses (Eagly & Carli, 2007; Flabbi et al., 2019) which found that women in authority positions were more democratic (or participative) and less autocratic (or direct). In today's world, women outperform men in terms of productivity (Egly & Carli, 2007). However, women's research is underrepresented, and the quantitative features of gender leadership studies remain largely similar. Research concentrating on the dialogue between male and female effectiveness should be revived, since the examination of leadership and leadership effectiveness was clearer than that of person and gender roles (Johnson et al., 2008). It is vital to have an understanding into how women lead effectively and what elements impact women leadership.

This report explains why sales employees treat tangible rewards differently from cash rewards and how tangible rewards motivate sales employees to attain better performance based on relevant theories and experiments. Five main explanations are given. Firstly, employees perceive cash rewards as “more salary” and treat tangible rewards separately from cash earnings. Consequently, tangible rewards are perceived more valuable. Secondly, the hedonic nature and an ambiguity in value lead to an increase in perceived value of tangible rewards. Thirdly, tangible rewards better convey employers’ recognition and appreciation of employees’ good performance and therefore are perceived more memorable and valuable. Fourthly, employees find it is easier to justify hedonic purchases if the hedonic goods are earned as tangible rewards. Accordingly, tangible rewards are more attractive. Lastly, poor-performing sales employees tend to be more optimistic when eligible for tangible rewards and exert more effort. Based on the findings, the report also gives some recommendation on using tangible rewards to motivate employees: To consider the income level of employees To ensure tangible rewards are of hedonic nature To implement some tournaments schemes if applicable To communicate recognition and appreciation through tangible rewards
