Case 13

True to Myself
Ethney Gentry is for a midsized Tulsa-based oil company where she believes that the main reason as to why she is being hired was because of her gender. After having a meeting with Alexis, the first female manager at the company, she realizes that to get promoted at this company she may have to change the way she behaves. Alexis, who now goes by Alex to fit in with the boys, was in a similar situation when she started at the company and was passed over and ignored simply because she was a woman. It wasn’t until Alex began to interact with the men who ran the company on their level that she began to get promoted. Ethney is faced with a dilemma of whether she should change her personality around her coworkers in order to be promoted easier, or to remain the same as she has always been. If I was Ethney I would start off by just being myself in the business world and trying to connect with people on a personal level instead of changing my behavioral patterns. It might be a harder to get promoted in this industry though because it is typically male dominated as a lot of the work is strenuous. It has been awhile since Alex began working at the company so maybe some of the previous people who ignored her ideas in the past are no longer with the company which would make being promoted easier. Since Alex has already been a manager for the company I do not think that it will be as hard to get promoted within the company since she had already paved the way for females in the company. If I do notice that I am being treated differently I might change up my personality a little bit and see if I am actually being treated differently because of the way behave. I think that if I just be myself I can be successful in the company with Alex already paving the way. One strategy that Ethney could use to connect with her co-workers and supervisors is to suggest that the company implement some affinity groups so that everyone in the company can get to know each

    Case Study 13.1 1.) The main source of the conflict is the growing divide between the manual laborers (the Wrench’s) and the sales staff and accounting (the Suits). The way they are communicating seems to also be an issue, from the insults being directed at Jose and also the way Jose and likely the Suits communicate with the other employees. From the book I would categorize this as a mix of values conflict and negotiation of self’s conflict with the labels and also the way they see the importance…

    Brad, Thanks for the questions, first I believe the insulation was to blame in this case it failed. The combustible material, which I believe you are referring to the amount of oxygen in the air worked the way it was designed to. I agree with you that if the system is flexible enough to add additional weight for additional insulation then add it. I see your point with communication being a factor in the Apollo 13 incident. I would have to agree with the rational that you provided that it did attribute…
