Answer each question separately, with a short-answer essay response:
- What was Cynthia Cooper’s role in uncovering the fraud at WorldCom?
- Colquitt (your textbook authoer) defines conflict at the beginning of the section on conflict resolution (p. 424): “Conflict arises when two or more individuals perceive that their goals are in opposition”. Using this definition of conflict, describe the conflict that Cynthia Cooper faced with Scott Sullivan. Which conflict resolution style did Cynthia Cooper use? Was it the right choice?
- Compare Cynthia Cooper’s conflict resolution style with the style used by Betty Vinson. (Remember that Betty Vinson was the subject of Assignment 2.)
