1. Analyze the behavior of each party from the perspective of the Six Pillars of Character. Assess the personal responsibility of Ed Giles and Sue Regas for the relationship that developed between them. Who do you think is mostly to blame?
2. If Giles were a person of integrity but just happened to have a “weak moment” in starting a relationship with Reg as, what do you think he would say when he meets with Herb Morris? Why?
3. Assume Ed Giles is the biggest “Rainmaker” in the firm. What would you do if you were in Herb Morris’s position when you meet with Giles? In your response, consider how you would resolve the situation in regard to both the completion of the CAA Industries audit and the longer-term issue of the continued employment of Giles and Regas in the accounting firm.
