Project Manager/Consultant

This is an article about the interview process and a recent job seeking experience of mine. I am interested in finding out how often a scenario such as this takes place in today's environment. Is it something that just happens on occasion or does experience, age, communication skill, etc. influence the situation? Your comments are welcome.

So far we dealt with Mr. Genius by clueing him in to what everyone else already knows: he doesn’t have all the answers.  Then we overcame Ms. Bellows by digging to the root causes and getting her to calm down.  But Mr. Promise seems like he would be a great guy to have around.  How could he possibly be evil?

Confrontational Conversations

It was a rough game.  During the week I spend my life as a mild mannered project manager, but on the weekends I turn into an AYSO Soccer Referee.  Unfortunately this time there was trouble.  The blue coach was the one that started pushing my buttons.  It probably started right at the beginning when I informed him that his spectator’s dog had to leave the field.  From then on he questioned everything and generally caused me grief.  I ended up calling both coaches to the center of the field and loudly telling them to knock it off.  It was my first such confrontational conversation as a ref.

A Question of Ethics

Ethics has been the topic of several separate conversations I have had recently.  One friend expressed near outrage about a discussion she overheard between two of her managers.  It ended with one saying, “Well, your ethics aren’t necessarily mine!”  Another friend found it amusing that he was able to avoid the company ethics meeting by lying about already attending.
