Yes, in a conflict situation with an executive director. When I realised my active listening was not going to resolve, I politely requested to terminate the meeting. Then I escalated the situation to my own executive director and briefed him on my discussion.
I told them a bit of my background and studies career. I also told them that I came into IT without knowing anything about IT. My only impression before starting IT was i always thought it was all to do with Microsoft stuff. Therefore, i told them that i can adjust to anything , anywhere regardless of what I am doing with proper guidance. I don't ever give up on something without giving it a fight, even if my competitors have the better odds.
I explained that I was not interested in joining any graduate program. I had consciously chose IBM because of the projects they are involved in. I wanted to be able to change roles within the company to see which area I would like to specialise in.
