SUBJECT :
Health Benefits
Dear Ms. Smith,
I have been working at Excentrix, Inc. for almost a month now and need to sign up for health benefits. I was told that you,
as the human resources director at Excentrix, could explain the benefits to me. My major concern is coverage for my
2

family. Is my entire family eligible for health insurance benefits? My wife and I have three children. My wife doesn’t
have a job. Our two daughters are still in high school and of course don’ yet work. Our son has finished school, but he is
still living at home with us. He has a full-time job that provides him with health insurance, but perhaps I could get bette
coverage for him through the Excentrix plan. My other question concerns my back. I have been receiving treatment for a
ad back for the past two years. This is a chronic condition, and I will continue to need treatment. Will it be covered
under the Excentrix plan?
Thank you for your help.
Rich Dubois

Part 3: Read the following article and choose the best answer (A, B, C or D) to each question (10 points)
SCHOOL SEEKS TO LEAD THE FIELD IN LEADERSHIP
While leadership can be learnt, it cannot be taught. It is a skill that, like swimming or flamenco guitar, is developed through
personal experience and coaching. Stanford University‟s Graduate School of Business likes to think of itself as better than the rest.
Harvard may be richer and Wharton bigger, but nowhere takes management more seriously than Stanford.
How does this rigorous institution approach “leadership”? It is a field so confused that the experts rarely agree on definitions, let
alone what should be studied or how success should be measured or testable theories developed. Bob Joss, Stanford business
school‟s Dean, has been considering this question since taking the top job five years ago. Now, nearing the end of his first term in
office, he has an answer: Stanford will have a leadership center, dedicated to adding academic backbone to the subject.
