Just checking...

  Have you ever…

  • Rolled your eyes at an employees’ request or suggestion?
  • Used sarcasm instead of dealing with the situation directly?
  • Delivered negative feedback to an employee in front of the whole team?
  • Shared bad news in a biting way? 

Embarrass an employee and you may take away their dignity.
Treat your team with respect and you will earn theirs. 
My Dad used to tell me that you can’t back people into a corner and win. 

This week, when you ask an employee to do something new or to change their behavior, give them time and space to absorb your message and treat them with dignity.
