Description

Situation

You work for XYZ Company, a national sales organization of electrical products for developers and contractors. As a Regional Office Manager in Montreal, head office has recently communicated their intentions to transfer you to the Vancouver office with the goal of improving their poor performance. During your first few weeks in Vancouver, you begin to notice different work practices and expectations among your staff than you are accustomed to. Specifically, In Montreal, team members regularly called customers after a sale to ask whether the products arrived on time and whether they are satisfied.
