(Solution Document) Kathy is a good friend. You socialize frequently, your kids play together and you think she has a lot to offer your organization.


Kathy is a good friend. You socialize frequently, your kids play together and you think she has a lot to offer your organization. As a senior manager in your division, you participate in staff meetings to discuss the performance and potential opportunities for individuals in that division. At those meetings, it is apparent that your peers, including Kath's boss, think that Kath's performance is okay, but don't see her as having potential to move any higher in the organization. As Kathy's friend, you know her better and believe they are wrong. You have expressed your point of view in the staff meetings, but the rest of the staff suggests that your evaluation is influenced by your friendship and they stick to their opinions.

You have an opening in your department that would be a promotion for Kathy. Your peers believe you should place Karla in that job because she is evaluated as having greater potential, yet you know if you don't promote Kathy, she will not have any other opportunity to get ahead in the company.
