The General Manager, Kimberley, told the other managers in a meeting that one her staff members had left. Kimberley told them that the employee was really valuable and she depended on her greatly. When Kimberley asked her why she was leaving she said 'I don't feel appreciated'. Kimberley was dumbfounded. ‘Did you ever tell her?’ one manager asked. ‘No’, she said. ‘I thought it was obvious.’
A company director, John, needed to provide one of his senior managers with feedback on his poor performance. The previous director had failed to approach this manager on his poor performance and it had been allowed to continue and become entrenched.
John felt anxious about doing this as he was concerned his manager would get upset and start blaming him, or worse still, get angry and undermine him later by spreading malicious gossip. He was heard to say ‘He is a senior manager; I shouldn't have to give him feedback; he should be self-motivated’. He felt uncomfortable with strong displays of emotions and wasn't sure he had the skills to handle them. He preferred to avoid conflict.

Assessment Task 3 – Case Study
Task 3.1
TASK SUMMARY:
You will need to review the case study below and answer a series of questions to show you can recognise and respond to emotional states in others.
INSTRUCTIONS:
Review the following case study.
CASE STUDY: BERYL AND YUKO
You are the Manager of a team of telemarketing staff for an online rental property business. The business specialises in finding both commercial and residential tenants for landlords, as well as matching landlords with tenants.
All staff work an eight-hour day from 9am to 5.30 pm, with 30 minutes for lunch.
Beryl is the Team Leader of the telemarketing group responsible for:
? supervision and mentoring of a telemarketing team of 8
? outbound sales calls to real estate agents, property managers and landlords
? appointment setting for field sales teams
? inbound query resolution and customer service
? maintenance of all customer contacts in the Customer Relationship Management system.
Beryl, aged 62, has been with the company for 3 years. She was born in Australia and she
has worked in sales most of her life. Beryl was hoping to retire at 60, but personal circumstances have meant she is continuing to work. Beryl is a very hard worker and achieves above the required results for signing up tenants and landlords.
One of the telemarketers that Beryl is responsible for is Yuko. Yuko is Japanese, aged 40 and has been in Australia for 2 years. She speaks good English and although she is generally quiet she gets on with her team members. She has always been very reliable with her attendance at work.
As the Operations Manager of the company and the overall manager of the team, you have noticed recently that there is tension between Beryl and Yuko.
You have noticed that Beryl often ignores Yuko or addresses her through another member of the team. You have also noticed Beryl whispering to other workers and you sense that this is in relation to Yuko.
Yuko’s work performance is suffering and she is not making the required amount of daily calls to sign up new tenants and landlords. Yuko has also become more withdrawn recently and tends not to sit in the staff room anymore or attend staff social functions.
This situation is stressful for you as the Manager, as the team’s performance targets are not being met and the situation seems to be having an effect on other staff members.
You have heard through another member of staff that Yuko feels that Beryl is racist and that Beryl complains that she can’t understand Yuko’s accent and she feels Yuko is never very enthusiastic about her work.
You would like to resolve this situation by getting Beryl and Yuko to understand each other’s perspectives and to manage their emotions at work. At this stage there are no options for moving either member of staff to another team.
