Need to Discuss Business Scenario at Interview

Dear Experts, I recently was invited to an on-site interview with a marketing firm. When I received the e-mail with all the necessary information, I was sent a document detailing a business scenario that will be further discussed during the interview. The interview panel would like me to think about answers or recommendations for this scenario. This is my first time encountering this type of interview tactic; I have answered the scenario questions, but is there any other advice you can provide? Thanks! Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#266 This approach is 2 understand ur work style. Tie n answers 2 job description n show results of actions.

Last week during my Office Hours on Youtube, a client asked about how to deal with a workplace bully.
