Consider the following scenario: One of your managers heard you are currently completing your master’s degree. He heard about your program’s emphasis on conscious capitalism and servant leadership. He called you into his office to discuss your how school is going. While sharing your excitement about what you are learning, he looked at you, smirked, and said, “All this emphasis on relationships is overrated. I have always made it clear to my subordinates what they need to do if they want to remain employed. All I have to say to them is, ‘Get it done and you will get rewarded, and if not, there will be consequences.’ It truly is that simple! Developing relationships with employees and suppliers or contractors, all that stuff is only good in the textbooks. It never delivers results.”
Prepare a response that explains the value of conscious capitalism and servant leadership and how it can be used to identify potential deficiencies. Include supporting citations to strengthen your claims.
