Essay 1: Describe a situation, preferably work connected, where you have played an important leadership role. How does this fact make evident your managerial potential?
Almost 30% of dismissals, loss of a considerable number of clients and projects, a qualified labor force, but minimized, confused and morally hit by its coworkers’ s leave; tasks concentration in few hands, unproductive working periods and a country’s precarious economic situation.
