Today, in Canada Insurance, Leia is named salesperson of the month by her boss, Greg.
Wow! Thank you so much, sir! I promise to keep up the good work!
Good morning Leia! I would like to let you know that you are this month's salesperson of the month!
Of course, sir! I will get to work right away.
Oh no. That's too much for me to handle, but I will try to do my best!
Because of your out standing performance this past month, I decided to place eight new clients under your care.
Leia ponders about the new clients she has received. It appears she is struggling to balance her attention equally to each client.
I can't seem to keep all of my clients happy ever since I got eight new ones. My older clients are upset that I rarely focus on them. The amount of people I have to serve is getting too stressful. I will have to work overtime just to make all of them happy
These past few weeks have been very stressful for Leia. Instead of working a maximum of 35 hours per week, Leia is working 50 hours per week.
I need to speak with a co-worker to help me balance my time with all these clients I have.
That's it! I cannot work like this any longer! I barely talk with my family anymore because of all the time I put in my work. All I can think of everyday is work! The stress is ruining my relationship with my family.
The next day, Leia goes to her co-worker, Rick, to help her with handling her clients
Good morning, Rick. I was wondering if you can help me with some of my clients? I got too many under my care and lately the stress is causing to space myself from my family.
I'm sorry, Leia, but I cannot help you. I too have a lot of clients that I recently got and I cannot focus on new ones at the moment. Maybe you should talk to our boss if he can do something about it.
Here is Leia standing outside of her boss's office, ready to talk to him.
Maybe I should ask my boss. There is no way I can continue to work like this. But wouldn't this make me a bad employee?
