  • CREATING TRUST A new employee, who has been on the job for six months and is one of your direct reports, asks how he is performing. You have been disappointed in his performance up to this point. Do you: a.Tell him that you are disappointed and why? b.Ask him how he thinks he is doing, and then share your thoughts on where he might improve? c.Tell him hes doing fine, but watch him more closely and look for opportunities to help him improve?
  • Slide 5
  • CREATING TRUST Your boss has become enamored with automated answering systems, and spends a good deal of time and money with the representative from the company that sold him the system trying to figure out how to expand its application to every possible client inquiry, thus eliminating all need for human contact. Your customers keep telling you that they HATE the system, and would rather speak to a real person. When anyone questions the use of the system, your boss gets very testy. Would you: a.Tell him that the customers you deal with hate the system and that it should be dumped? b.Suggest ways that the system could be modified to please the customers who would prefer to deal with a real person? c.Say nothing and tell your customers theres nothing you can do about it?
  • Slide 6
  • CREATING TRUST You have been working late every night for the past month on several special projects that your CEO has given to you at the last minute and you are beginning to feel stressed, used, and unappreciated. Tonight you are scheduled to go see your seven-year-old perform in the school play. She approaches you as you are walking out the door and asks you to stay late and put together some numbers so she can use them in a presentation she is making tomorrow. This is an assignment she could have easily given to you days ago, but she tends to do things at the last minute. If you stay, you will miss the play. Would you: a.Say, OK, stay to do the work and miss the play? b.Politely decline, explaining that youre on your way to your childs school play? c.Say youll take care of it, go to the play, and then return to the office after the play to work on it late into the night?
