From Conflict to Career Launch
A young executive, seemingly destined for a bright future with the company, was having a series of conflicts with a receptionist. These conflicts included her lack of job conscientiousness, a disrespectful attitude, and a dismissive arrogance when confronted.
Take the Money and Run
The problem was that the owner, who held over 90 percent of the ownership, was accustomed to operating the company as their own personal piggy bank. The result of this was that other managers, as well as others at the company who knew what was going on, were feeling used and very resentful of the owner.
Transfer or Outright Sell?
The owner was in his late 60’s and wanted to retire. He had long nourished ideas that his son would be the person to take over the business. Both of his advisors thought this was unwise.
Reluctant Father and Capable Son
The CEO of a $30M family-owned business had brought his three children into the company even though they were not qualified at the time. Despite their lack of business skills, the children had been given senior management positions. The father was reluctant to step aside and there was considerable rivalry between the children in the business.
Should the Son Take Over?
The CEO of a long-established manufacturing company was having difficulties with regard to his company’s succession plan.He was considering retiring and having his son take over the business. However, his accountant and attorneys were against this plan because they didn’t believe the son was capable of running the business.
Any Virtue to an Excess is a Vice
The dilemma was that a leader involved in the field of compliance auditing had a style that was very black and white, right and wrong. He tended to alienate people because he was very diligent and harsh with other people. When it came to people who were slow to get things to him, he would get “on them” in an aggressive way and put them to the test.
