Apply what you learned from the chapter reading this week and from the article on managing difficult employees. Determine what type of difficult employee you have for your case; then decide if this scenario meets the definition of interpersonal conflict as it is discussed in the book (i.e., expressed disagreement, interdependence, and opposition). Next, create a way to address the problem based on the guidelines for effective communication in conflict situations (focusing on the overall communication system, time conflict effectively, aim for win–win conflict, etc.).

Your response should be a one-page (300-350 words) report that makes informed references from this module’s materials. A grading rubric (how this assignment will be graded) is provided.
