Linda Powell: Abstract
This case presents the difficulties that Linda Powell, Chief Financial Officer for a non-profit organization, is experiencing with her boss. Linda is frustrated by his inability to make decisions and to confront difficult situations, particularly ones that might lead to conflict. She is particularly upset about the way he has handled her salary increases and performance evaluations, and is rapidly losing respect for him. She wonders how she should deal with this situation, and is even considering leaving the organization.
