Ashley prides herself on her keen ambition and sees no reason why she shouldn’t achieve what she feels she deserves. There is always a cost, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be a cost borne by herself. The other employees in her new firm need to be conquered either by charm or clever manoeuvring but as long as the end result is that she powers up the corporate ladder, Ashley considers that things are progressing exactly as they should be.
Helena welcomes the opportunity to mentor a new person on her team, and fully believes in the value of a happy and nurturing workplace. If she can bring out the talents of her colleagues in such a way that the company receives their best efforts, it’s a win-win all around. Inviting her new young colleague Ashley to assist in an exciting new project, Helena envisions that between Ashley and herself, magic will happen. What happens next is nothing of the sort.
