“So, Phillip can handle tasks with a one month time span, but falls short on tasks with a longer time span,” Joyce confirmed.
“So, what does that tell you about his role? You told me that you promoted him to Warehouse Manager. Based on the level of work in the role, is that appropriate for Phillip?” I asked.

“So, if you had determined the level of work before the promotion, you might have done something differently?” I prompted.
“Absolutely. When I look at Time Span, it becomes so obvious that his promotion was a bone-headed decision.”
“And who was responsible for that bone-headed decision?”
“That would be me,” Joyce replied.
