Tough Guy Case Study
Read through the article, we know that Jeremy Frazer, an associate at the investment bank called Hudson Smith Gordon, was confronted with a challenge. He knew that investment bank is such competitive and cruel field so that he would meet and work with people with different personalities: aggressive, ambitious, and arrogant. He never thought that one day he have to deal with person like Chip Mazey, the vice president of the company, who was known his poor personal skills. For Chip Mazey’s bad manners, Jeremy Frazer’s excitement was diminished quickly during their first meet. Afterwards, he knew that many peers had experienced Mazey’s ...view middle of the document...

Teamwork and communication are two of the core keys to construct an effective and harmonious atmosphere yet Mazey’s nitpicking behavior and one-way communicating skill would definitely ruin the balance.

No doubt that Mazey is an aggressive communicator who always tries to manipulate people to do what he wants. One of the representative examples is that when Frazer first met Mazey he was shocked by Mazey’s outrageous behavior of ordering him to stand “right here” and pointing a spot in front of his desk. By doing so at their first time meet, Mazey wanted to show that “this is my place and all of you should listen to me”. In terms of Fenster’s experience, which she was derogated and insulted directly by Mazey for her unqualified assignment. We can assume Mazey has his own high standard and excessively strict to his subordinates, nevertheless he was unable to express his own opinions and attitudes to the peers may accounted for why he was so easily irritated to some extent. What’s worse, he is a changeable person that you will never know what he will do next.

He is an absolutely workaholic, but as a leader his duty is to unite and to manage people. It seemed he was doing the opposite.

There are several options for Frazer to choose: to negotiate with Mazey, to compromise with Mazey’s leadership style, to say nothing but suffering or to quit and find another job. It is likely doesn’t work to negotiate with Mazey because he has high self-confidence that he will deny every negative personalities he has and every suggestions given by the others. Nonfeasance and resign are also not good choices. The best option for Frazer would be find a way for Frazer and Mazey to compromise. As a qualified leader, one should switch his/her leadership style in terms of employees’ style. For example, when facing employees who with low skill and High motivation, an influence style would be more suitable while a direction style would be appropriate when dealing with low...
