EXECUTIVE ASSISTANTS BEHAVING BADLY
Peggy Waterman was the senior secretary to the regional vice president of a financial services
firm, a position she held for years. In Peggy’s contacts with other regional offices, she discovered that
her counterparts were promoted to executive assistants. Peggy wanted to be an executive assistant
because the position would give her more status, salary, and vacation time. She approached Ken
Jackson, her manager, and requested a promotion to executive assistant.
Ken liked the idea and asked Peggy to draft a job description that would increase her level of
responsibilities, including work on special assignments. Ken reviewed the description with Peggy,
contacted the headquarters human resource department, and secured the reclassification. Peggy could
not understand why Ken was placing more demands on her time and requesting that she accomplish
more tasks independently. Ken, in turn, could not understand why Peggy was blocking his requests
because it was she who had asked for the promotion.
Peggy would openly complain, “What good is it to be an executive assistant and get more
vacation time? Every time I turn around, Ken has some new project for me. I never get to take the
vacation time I have.” Peggy soon began bad-mouthing Ken. She would answer his telephone calls
and say such things as, “I don’t know where Ken is. He never tells me anything anymore.”
Peggy’s disgruntlement continued, and she stopped providing Ken with the information she
was supposed to. On one occasion, Peggy scheduled several people to meet with Ken but did not tell
him about it until the last minute when the group suddenly appeared at his office. Peggy insisted to
Ken, “I told you the meeting was scheduled. Don’t you listen to me anymore?” Her rhetorical
question was asked in front of the guests who had arrived for the meeting.
Peggy insisted that all the information sent to Ken had to be reviewed by her first, and that
email messages for Ken be sent to her for forwarding. Even hard-copy items were plucked from Ken’s
box and reviewed. Peggy would then openly pass judgment on the contents. Once she told a manager
reporting to Ken that he would most certainly approve a promotion for one of her people. Yet Ken had
not yet read the request.
Once day the company CEO telephoned Ken, and Peggy took the opportunity to describe Ken’s
inability to run his operation. Upon speaking to Ken, the CEO said, “Muzzle her or fire her. I don’t
care which.”
What would be an ineffective structural response by Ken? What would be an effective structural
response?
What would be an ineffective human resource response by Ken? What would be an effective human
resource response?
What would be an ineffective political response by Ken? What would be an effective political
response?
What would be an ineffective symbolic response by Ken? What would be an effective symbolic
response?
