Characteristic Weakness


current time:

Lee works for an insurance agency. His area of expertise is shipping insurance. They cover ships for accidents at sea due to many causes, from bad weather to inadequate manning on the vessel. Lee always researches the companies he covers and he has two assistants to help him. It is characteristic for him to ask them to do something, and then do it himself. It implies that he does not trust them, and they sense it. This creates an unfortunate office climate, which is too bad because Lee does trust them, but he enjoys his work so much that he does it himself. He has a lot to learn about managing people.
