Wharton interpersonal challenge essay [#permalink] New post 12 Sep 2011, 20:32
Quick content question on the Wharton interpersonal challenge essay. Are you guys writing about a difficult relationship (e.g. a difficult or non-cooperative coworker)? Or can these essays also be about individual incidents (like a really poorly conducted meeting where no one wanted to see it your way, and you went and somehow turned it around)?

I feel like the question is pretty broad and can capture both types of "challenging interpersonal experiences", but reading online about examples, I really only see long-term relationships being written about.

The question reads:

"Discuss a time when you faced a challenging interpersonal experience. How did you navigate the situation and what did you learn from it?"

Taken at face value, what do you think? That should be your answer.
