Management Scenario #4 As leader of your work team, you were recently confronted by an angry fellow team member. Linda, a marketing agent on your advertising team, is upset because, for the third time in as many weeks, she was forced to give up part of her weekend for work. This time it was for a black-tie affair that everyone in the office tried to duck. Some team members were either out of town or had already volunteered for other assignments. Linda is particularly angry with Robert, who she feels should have represented the team at the awards dinner. But, he uttered the magic word: “family”. “Robert says he has plans with his family, and it is like a get-out-of-jail free card.” Linda complains to you. “I don’t resent him or his devotion to his family. But I do resent it when my team constantly expects me to give up my personal time because I don’t have kids. That is my choice, and I don’t think I should be punished for it.” You can feel the tension building in your team over this issue and you know you need to address this conflict.
