In my opinion, Andrew nailed
it. He understood the perspective of other parties who have invested in UPC.
This indicates his thoughtful strategic move is proactive, reactive and
creative. His vision is UPC’s future and not just profit projections alone.
He views downsizing as an opportunity rather than a
threat. His decision to support Charles is intentional. In this whole process, he
attempts reorientation approach to change UPC’s mission, strategies and systems
and abandon past activities. In this whole process, Andrew knows how others
feel and what they might be thinking. Empathic concern was somewhere missing
which is vital to maintain sustainable success. He knew that the interests and
concerns of the other stakeholders in this situation are a priority and they
need to know that their voice matters. Instead of being self-biased, the plan
of action he brought to the table was to benefit all the stakeholders and UPC. Despite
the fact that he could be on who may be laid off too. Andrew has examined his
plan in every aspect for waste which could lead to savings of more than 11% in
the long run.
