Mock Mediation Roleplay #3 (continued)

Tool Box

Credit Where Credit is Due (A Co-Worker Dispute)


You have requested this mediation. You are concerned about your working relationship with John. On the last three projects you've worked on together, he has taken credit for ideas that were yours! You have heard repeated reports that in the presidents council meetings where John often presents the results of projects, he often neglects to mention your name, and tends to say "I" rather than "we".

This semester you have a grad seminar on the days that the president's council meets, but even last semester, John was always the one being asked by your boss to report results. You're getting fed up. Last week you confronted John in the breakroom, but he just blew up at you and has avoided you ever since. John is an old friend from undergraduate days, and you still spend some time with him socially.

You're worried about your own advancement at the University, and really feel that you no longer trust John. Right now you wish you never had to work with John again!
