The two men had been in constant disagreement ever since they became co-managers of the marketing department two months ago, and this disagreement was starting to impact all parts of the department. During a mediationsession, Molly asked the men to explain their conflict over a recent business proposal. "Tell me exactly which part of the proposal is causing theissues," she instructed.
