Add to favorites
  • You, the 'employee', are eager and meticulously prepared, aiming to impress the 'manager' with your recent performance, convinced that you deserve the next step up the career ladder. The 'manager', on the other hand, is supportive yet sees areas for improvement and the need for further development through lateral opportunities. The conversation touches on achievements, aspirations, perceived potential, constructive criticism, and the navigation of delicate work politics. Tensions rise as both sides make their case, leading to a personal breakthrough and mutual understanding, with a hint of personal affection simmering beneath the professional demeanor.

Preparation steps:

  • Both partners should prepare by researching aspects of each other's roles. The 'employee' should put together a mock list of achievements and a persuasive argument for the desired promotion. The 'manager' should create a profile of the 'employee's' performance, making note of strengths and areas for growth. Both should dress in business attire to set the stage and delve into their roles with the use of office props such as portfolios, pens, and notepads.
