Consider this scenario: You and your brother work for your father’s
successful family business, which employs 15 individuals. Your role has
evolved from being the Chief Machinist to being the General Manager and
main salesperson for the business. Your brother has creative talent and
is good at designing and fabrication, but is not strong in interpersonal
skills. Additionally, your brother does not take care of his personal
appearance and uses language around customers that is not appropriate.

Your father wants you to give your brother additional
responsibilities. He suggests that your brother should work in the
sales/front-facing side of the business. Your father has asked you to
develop a plan that successfully integrates your brother into the public
side of the business. However, you do not feel that it is the right
thing to do for the business!
