You run a small company that handles office supplies, and are working on a merger with a large corporation that will prove to be very beneficial both financially and for expansion. To help facilitate the merger, you hire Jane, who has an MBA from Harvard to assist. Dale has been your manager for the last 20 years, and you trust him implicitly. He has a Bachelor’s degree in business, and this has been the only job he has ever had. The other employees are suspicious of Jane, and do not like her high-handed attitude, nor does Dale. The two are both integral to the successful merger, but do not seem to be able to work together.
- Explain the techniques you might utilize with the two of them to resolve the conflict.
