You are the Sales Manager in an insurance company and are in charge of a territory. You are heading a team of six people. There is a possibility you may be promoted soon if you achieve your sales target of $300,000 this year. You are confident that you will achieve this target.
However, one of your star salespeople has been behaving abrasively with you and the other members of the sales team.

However, his attitude is lowering the morale of the entire team. It is time you did something to save the situation.
