MG665 Managerial Communication Lesson #6 Assignment #2 1. How would you define the problem that has arisen between Dick Garanti and Mary Wilson? What aspects of the scene have particular bearing on the problem? For example, is Mary’s relationship to David Smith incidental or does it significantly complicate the situation? It seems that Mary aspired to do more in the publishing field, so she chose to obtain a Master’s degree and take on additional responsibility to prove herself.

Dick was supportive of Mary finding an editorial position, and it appeared that he did all that he could to help her. He even supported her leaving Dotsworth if she could find a suitable position elsewhere. Mary, on the other hand, got frustrated with the situation and took it out on Dick. He had no bearing on a tight job market, nor did have any bearing on editorial positions not opening up at Dotsworth. However, as pointed out, Dick should have risen above the situation by giving honest, objective feedback without “personalizing” the issue. Mary’s behavior was unprofessional, and it was stated that she became abusive and insulting.

    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.
