Cherie is an accountant for a large advertising agency. After receiving notice of a prospective, large account, she thinks of a creative advertising campaign and tells her idea to Charles, her manager. Charles shoots down her idea and reminds her that her job is accounting. Several days later, the design team visits Charles and asks him for more details on his brilliant campaign idea. Cherie realizes that the campaign being discussed is her idea.  What does this outcome indicate about the communication climate and power holding in the agency? If you were Cherie, would you approach Charles about stealing your idea, or would you show support for your manager? Why?  Class, I’m sure that this week’s scenario will prove to be an interesting conversation. To get us started, let’s address a few issues: Have you experienced a similar situation in your own professional experience to that of Charles and Cherie in the scenario? Please tell us about it. How did you resolve it? Review the steps for improving relationships with others (195). How would you use these steps to address the situation described above?…

When it comes to coworkers, why are strong interpersonal relationships important in business?

I have not had this happen to me, but it has happened to my partner. And you are right. You should not act on anger. I, too, give myself 24 hours if I am really angry. Words cannot be taken back and the damage done by them cannot be undone. After all, you still have to work for your manager. It is best to just support the manager and know in your mind that the idea was yours. I do believe that managers that steal ideas and not give credit are not good leaders and usually do not get the respect that a manager should receive. That being said, I tend to give the respect to the position (in this situation) not the person in the position. Respect is earned and mangers that steal ideas have not earned it.

The steps for improving relationships in this situation could be to accept the person for who he/she is. Forget that they stole your idea and focus on the future. Confronting the person and letting them know how you feel could also be beneficial. This could help you understand why they did what they did. And always maintain professional during these situations. By not giving into anger you could save yourself from being targeted in future situations…
