SLS could create an outline of what the goals of the organization really are. They could also ask the employees who work there what they think needs to be improved or changed. Getting feedback and having an outline would make it easier to see which model would fit best.

 

Ethical Decision Making

Do you think that this kind of action is unethical because Charlie knows he is leaving soon?

It isnít necessarily unethical for him to tell her to come back to meet in 2 or 3 weeks. It is immature to not be straight forward and tell her he wonít be meeting with her. He should tell her heís leaving and someone else will handle her request.
