THIS CASE IS A NUTSHELL
Two Sales Managers are interested to launch and run a new European Branch office in Madrid, Spain for their company.
But only one of them can get that job. If they don’t agree, their CEO/Company owner will hire someone else.
The stakes are high. The manager who is successful in Europe would be a good candidate for becoming the company’s next CEO.
Each Sales Manager needs also to convince their families that moving to Europe is a good idea.
