You are the project manager for a retail clothing company and are responsible for setting up new stores. One of your team members, Bob, has been acting up lately. He often times is in a bad mood and has been creating a lot of conflict. You hear a rumor that he is having personal issues with his spouse, but that is no excuse for his behavior. How should you approach this situation?
A. Call an intervention so the entire team can tell him how his behavior has impacted the team B. Send him an email informing him that his behavior is inappropriate C. Schedule a one-on-one meeting to discuss the issue in private D. Setup a meeting with Bob and his wife to try to help them resolve their differences
