Case: MANAGING UP AND ACROSS
As an operation professional, you need to be able to interact effectively with many internal
customers—from corporate managers to field representatives. One of your peers is Jessica,
who is a talented operation professional but who is downright rude to her internal
customers. Her attitude is so bad that people around your company ask specifically to deal
with you instead of Jessica. You’ve heard many tales about her sarcasm and her
unwillingness to deliver anything other than the absolute minimum to other employees.
You’ve thought about talking to Bruce, the manager to whom both you and Jessica report,
but you and everyone else knows that they’re dating. In the meantime, your workload is
increasing because of Jessica’s reputation.
How do you handle Jessica and Bruce? (2.5 Marks)
