5 Read the following scenario and respond to the following questions:
1. State how you would behave if you were in Candace’s position.
- Do you believe Candace will provide honest input in the future if asked by Britney?
- How could Britney have approached this situation with Candace differently to avoid the predicament Candace is currently in?
- Is Britney’s leadership style effective in this situation?
In this case, Candace has to decide whether she should give Britney the names of the managers who may be displaying favoritism toward certain employees or risk the ire of her new boss. Candace excelled in her position at ABCO Corporation and had a good repertoire with her previous supervisor. When the new supervisor, Britney, started her position, she asked the employees if they had any suggestions that would improve the efficiency of the division. Candace informed Britney that while staff worked hard, she had noticed some managers giving promotions and overtime based upon who they liked instead of the quality of their work. Britney, a no-nonsense type of manager, thanked Candace for her input. The next day, Britney met with Candace and demanded that she tell her the names of the managers to which she was referring to so she could create an example to show that all employees should work hard and favoritism would not be allowed. If Candace does not tell Britney the managers’ names, then Britney may view her as part of the problem.
