You have just received an email from your boss (the CEO). He wants you to help turn around the organization’s anti-union culture. He has asked you to prepare a slide presentation (10-15 slides) with notes at the bottom that he (the CEO) will give to his top management staff next week. In the presentation he wants to explain why it is important for all managers and supervisors to stop with their narrow anti-union mentality and instead keep unions out by building workplace relations and employee engagement. Remaining union-free is still your organization’s goal, but there needs to be more emphasis on strengthening workplace relations and employee engagement. Your boss wants you to email him the slides “today if possible, and tomorrow at the latest.”
You are currently sitting in an airport in Paris with a 10-hour delay. It is a good time to write and send in this presentation. You have prepared slides and notes for your boss before. He wants appealing slides with attached, meaningful notes so that he doesn’t need to add content.
