Sometimes our actions speak louder than our words.
Have you ever…
- Rolled your eyes at an employee's 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?
These behaviors can embarrass an employee and that may take away their dignity.
Be specific, be honest and be respectful. People can handle the truth if it's delivered well.
