I face problems head on.

Exactly like me - I analyze the situation, look for solutions, and choos e the best one. Somewhat like me - I might try to avoid facing it, in the hopes that it will go away on its own, but failing that, I will try to find a solution. Not really like me - unfortunately, Denial is my middle name. 81. When something is really bothering me, I: Give in to the negative emotions until they are all I can think about. Distract myself as much as possible. Seek out help from others, even if it's just someone to talk to. Get to the root of the issue, and find a way to solve the problem on my own.

Let him/her speak without interruption, and adjust my speech accordingly to make it easier to understand.

94. Off the top of your head, can you name three things that motivate you to work hard (at a task at work, personal goal, weight loss, exercise, etc.)? Yes I can name 1 or 2 No 95. If you found out that the company you worked for was engaging in clearly unethical practices (e.g. dumping waste in rivers, animal cruelty), how would y ou react? I'd quit immediately. I'd be upset, and would want to quit, but I'd be afraid of not finding a nother job. I'd stick around and bear it. I wouldn't do anything differently. I'm just there to do my job. I'd write a scathing letter or speak directly to the head of the company , and insist that they change these practices. I'd complain about the unethical conduct to friends and family, and perh aps some of my co-workers too, but I don't think I'd do anything about it. I would gather evidence and report the company to the proper authorities . 96. How often do you find yourself going against your morals/principles, des pite your better judgment? (e.g. letting a friend get away with something you kn ow is wrong, turning a blind eye to an injustice, etc.).

97. Your company raises money for a children's charity, and collects donatio ns from all employees. You and your boss are counting the donations, which total to the amount of $10,200. Your boss decides to even things out, and takes the $ 200 for himself/herself. You're the only two people in the room and there are no cameras, so he/she can easily get away with it. Your boss doesn't seem to care, emphasizing that most charities are scams anyway. What would you do in response to this? I'd insist that he/she put it back, because it's just so wrong to take m oney from children. I'd hope that he/she would change his/her mind. I'd insist that he/she put it back, or I'd tell upper management or the rest of the employees. And I'd actually do so if he/she didn't return it. I'd threaten to tell if he/she didn't put it back, but I wouldn't actual ly do so. I'd make a disapproving face at most, but I would let it go. I'd let him/her get away with it. $200 isn't much, and the charity will get a good $10,000 anyway. I'd threaten to tell unless he/she gave me half. 98. You're working as a salesperson for a company. Would you advocate a prod uct or service to a client knowing that it wouldn't fit his or her needs? Absolutely not Probably not Maybe Probably Absolutely 99.

You've been working on it for at least six months, without much observable progress, at least from an outsider's perspective. How would you most likely be feeling at this moment? Fed up and ready to give up. Somewhat frustrated, but I'd try to remind myself that it will all be wo rth it in the end. A little disappointed that it's taking longer than expected, but I would

manage to stay invested. I'd feel just fine, because I know that I am working towards an amazing goal. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have lasted as long as six months. I w ould have given up by now.

100. Irene's friend is angry with her and Irene has no idea why. How do you t hink she should resolve the situation? Ignore him or her until he/she gets over it. Angrily demand an explanation.

What is the best thing to do to help with Am elia's unhappiness with her job? Talk to her boss to find a way to make her current job more tolerable. Quit her job immediately, before things get worse. Look for another job. Do nothing and hope that things will eventually get better. Deliberately sabotage herself at work (working inefficiently or being ca reless) until she is fired.

Get busy - fill his days with activities that keep his mind and body occ upied. Go over the events of the breakup in his mind over and over to make sens e of what happened. Look to the future and try to use what he learned from the relationship. Focus on being happy on his own - enjoy the time he has to himself. Try to get back together with his ex, at any cost.

Take Eileen aside, vent my frustration, then rejoin her friend and try t o have a good time. Lecture Eileen angrily in front of her friend. Don't say anything, but bring it up the next time Eileen makes me mad. Make subtle remarks to Eileen throughout the meal (e.g. comment on how l ate they are finishing dinner) to let her know that I am not happy. Leave the restaurant - I don't deserve this treatment. Ignore Eileen as much as I can throughout the night, to teach her a less on. Try to forget about it. Eileen is there now, and it's not worth getting mad about.

Bring it up when we get home, and tell her that I would appreciate an ap ology or at least a phone call next time. I don't know

He ha s taken the morning off work for this appointment, even though he has a fast-app roaching deadline for a huge project - he assumed that he would be in and out wi thin half an hour, which wouldn't be a big deal. Unfortunately, his appointment was for 9:30am and it is already 10:15 - and he hasn't seen the dentist yet. He is frustrated with the waiting, tired of being patient, and worried about the pr oject. He approaches the receptionist to resolve the situation. She tells him, o nce again, that the dentist will see him shortly - but experience has proven tha t this just isn't the case. How should he deal with this situation? He should tell the receptionist exactly how busy his schedule is and why this waiting is really disastrous for his job. Maybe she can do something to sp eed up the process. He should take an appointment for another day. He should accept the fact that this type of thing happens - he's not the only one who's busy. He should use the waiting time he has to focus his energy on coming up w ith ideas for the project he is working on. He should really get angry with the receptionist, and tell her how compl etely unacceptable it is to let a busy person wait around for a check-up. He sho uld point out that she did a poor job of scheduling the appointments, and insist on seeing the dentist immediately or threaten to switch dentists. He should wait this one time, then switch dentists. He should take an appointment for another day, but seek out a new dentis t. 106. How would you deal with this situation if it had been you?

107. Alice's manager is continually dumping tasks on her desk. They are tasks that have to be completed before morning and he always plops them down near the end of the day. The tasks are not her responsibility but she has been helping h im out without complaint for several weeks. She has been patient with her manage r when he explains why he can't take care of it himself, but this has become a r egular occurrence. What should Alice do? Discuss permanently taking over the responsibilities from her manager in exchange for a raise, a promotion, or extra vacation days. Bring up the issue with her boss.

Continue doing the extra work but intentionally make mistakes that will make the manager look bad. Tell her manager that the extra work is really inconveniencing her, beca use she's struggling to complete her own tasks and even has to stay late sometim es to finish them. Nothing.

Tell her manager that she is happy to help out with the extra work - IF he agrees to give the tasks to her at the beginning of the day and accepts that she will finish them after she completes her own tasks. 108.

109. At a meeting, one of Aidan's colleagues makes a proposal - and Aidan can not believe his ears, because the idea his colleague is proposing is his own! He had discussed it with her just last week. He wanted her feedback so that he cou ld finalize the whole concept before taking it to his superior. He waits patient ly until the end of the presentation hoping that his colleague will at least cre dit him with the idea but it doesn't happen! What should Aidan do? Agree that the proposal is very interesting and worthy of further resear ch. He should add his input to the proposal, making it obvious that he had a lot to add to the idea, but not let on that he had anything to do with its creation . He shouldn't be attached to getting the credit - at least the proposal w as presented and well-received. He should speak up and say that while discussing this idea last week wit h his colleague, he had come up with some additional interesting points. He shou ld make it clear that he had something to do with the proposal as well -- but wi thout entirely discrediting his colleague. He should stand up after she is finished and ridicule her in front of th e entire group for not being able to come up with her own ideas. She will think twice the next time she wants to snatch someone's brilliant idea. Nothing. She'll have to do all the work now and will probably need his h elp at some point - and then he can choose not to lift a finger. Say nothing about the plagiarism but start ignoring his colleague, refus ing to acknowledge her presence from that point on. In the future, he should def initely keep quiet around her when it comes to any of his ideas. Stand up during the proposal and state his claim to the idea. He should tell everyone that he can prove it by asking her questions that only he can answ er (the research basis for the project, all the pros and cons, the costs, etc.). He should threaten to discredit her or intimidate her into admitting to their boss that she stole his idea. 110. How would you respond if you were in Erik's place?

111. The president of the company has just hired his son for a summer positio n in the department that Natalie manages.

As the weeks g o by, Natalie notices that the son is doing less and less work and leaving earli er and earlier in the afternoon. His behavior is unfair to the other employees w ho work long hours and abide by stressful deadlines. How should Natalie deal wit h this behavior? Wait for him to make the next premature exit, then loudly ask where he i s going and let him know that as long as he is working in this department, he wi ll follow the rules she sets. She should threaten to inform his father about his lack of work ethic. She should let it go and pretend not to notice his early departures at a ll. If she complains, her boss will fire her. She should speak with him in private, telling him that she would prefer that he be at work all day. But if he must disappear, she should ask him to be m ore discreet so that the other employees won't be so aware of his special treatm ent. She should confront him and tell him that he is required to work full da ys. She should explain that anything short of a death in the family is an unacce ptable reason to skip out early. She should also let him know that his relations hip with his father has nothing to do with his job in her department. She should ignore his disappearances but send him disapproving looks whe never they cross paths. Hopefully, he'll catch on that she's not impressed. She should speak with him in private and offer him one of two options: e ither he works full days or switches to an hourly pay. She should discuss the problem with his father, explaining that while sh e understands that it's his son, it's leaving a bad impression and is unfair to the other employees. 112.

She is feeling ov er-worked and under-appreciated. As time goes by her friend seems to only become more demanding! How should Rowan address the issue?

She should mention to her friend that she is feeling pretty harried tryi ng to take care of two households at once. She should still continue to come by to help out, but ask him to cut her some slack. She should continue doing the housework, but not as flawlessly as she wo

uld do her own...maybe it will save her some energy when it comes time to doing her chores at home. She should tell her friend about all the chores that have been neglected at her home, explaining that she just can't keep up with his demands. She shoul d emphasize that he can either accept whatever she does manage to do for him, or find someone else.
