Unit 8 Assignment – Communication Page 2 of 6 Communication & Conflict Resolution In a voice message from Amelia, the boss learns that Amelia’s team has been prescreening athletes for several new campaigns. She found a candidate who seems perfect for the sports drink promotional campaign for one specific client, but she found out that this athlete might be taking steroids. Amelia reported this to her team to discuss this, and their response was that she is imagining things and just needs to sign this athlete, who has a huge following, on before a competitor gets him and they lose their opportunity. She said that the client has made it clear that they want this particular athlete, and they implied that their future relationship with the company might be at risk depending on whether or not they are able to sign on this athlete. Amelia expressed concern about the company's reputation as well as the company’s client’s reputation. If the athlete turns out to be taking steroids he could be banned from the games, which would reflect badly on both the company and the client’s campaign. She said she spoke to the athlete’s agent who is not be supportive of taking a drug test at this time. This means the decision will have to be made without the precaution of a drug screening. Amelia said that her colleagues on this assignment want to override her stance and one even said that if she doesn’t sign this athlete on within the next 24 hours, he would. Amelia requested an email response advising her of the boss’ thoughts and directives on how to proceed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
