Mock Mediation Roleplay #8 (continued)

Tool Box

College Flex-Time

You are the Director of the Admissions Office. You have been there for 12 years and are responsible for supervising a staff of ten people. Chris is relatively new (1 1/2 years), kind of flaky and often comes up with off-the-wall suggestions. The latest one involved Chris working late sometimes and coming in late sometimes. You run a tight ship. You think staff would be able to express their opinions, but then they need to accept your decisions. You are not opposed to change, as long as it is well thought out and well reasoned. You have been under a lot of stress lately because the office has been really busy. You have paperwork to complete, decisions to make and endless meetings to attend. You admit that sometimes you are short-tempered with people. When Chris suggested mediation, you agreed, if it would not take too long. You are somewhat skeptical about mediation, as it could undermine your power.
