Case Study: With Friends Like This . . .

One morning, well before the start of your department’s normal working hours, you were

enjoying a cup of coffee in the cafeteria, shaping up your calendar of tasks and appointments for

the day, when you were approached by one of your employees. The employee, Millie Norman,

one of your two or three most senior professionals in terms of service, seated herself across from

you and said, “There’s something going on in the department that you need to know about, and

I’ve waited far too long to tell you.” You reacted internally with both impatience and

annoyance—you were not prepared to interrupt what you were doing, and you had not even

invited Millie to join you.

Millie proceeded to tell you (“In strictness confidence, please, I know you’ll understand

why”) that another long-term professional employee, Cathy Johnson, had been making a great

many derogatory comments about you throughout the department and generally questioning your

competence.

For 10 minutes Millie showered you with criticism of you, your management style, and

your approach to individual employees, all attributed to Cathy Johnson. On exhausting her litany,

Millie proclaimed that she did not ordinarily “carry tales” but that she felt you “had a right to

know, for the good of the department—but please don’t tell her I said anything.”

Although Millie’s comments were filled with “she saids” and “she dids,” and generally

twice-told tales without connection to specific incidents, something extremely disturbing clicked

in your mind while you were listening. Recently your posted departmental schedule had been

altered, without your knowledge, in a way indicating that someone had tried to copy your

handwriting and forge your initials. Two separate, seemingly unconnected comments by Millie

together revealed that only one of two people could have altered your schedule. Those two

people were Cathy Johnson and Millie Norman herself.

As Millie finally fell silent you were left with an intense feeling of disappointment. You

wondered if you could ever again fully trust two of your key employees.
