Dealing with employees

hi,

well we are facing a problem from one of a emplyees  who is very very individualistic 
 
not ready to accept his flaws and feels he is perfect  as well as not ready to adopt new things 
 
he is not atall a team player but is good in whatever work he is doing 
 
what can be the ways to handle such employee without  removing them  please share ur views

Re: Dealing with employees

the deciding factor for a view on this would be what kind of a job is this employee having?? anyhows, i feel that these kind of people take a heavy toll on the morale of the entire organization.

first option avilable could be to place this employee in a group requiring a highly stressing job requiring heavy team work. giving strenous dead lines very often could prove to be a good unlearning excercise for him.

secondly, praise that guy in front of every one.this could prove to be a very good technique.this is known as auto suggestion.praise his abilities and skills and this would surely tone him down.more often than not these people suffer from inferiority complex.so this boost would make them a little more receptive towards their team. do let me know what u feel about this

warm regards

Re: Dealing with employees

Dear chouhan,

If the employee is good at whatever he does, why do u want to change his attitude?? If he ain't ready to accept his flaws, there's a possiblility that he's flawless and whatever u point to is baseless, caused by ur sheer inane desire to change others' attitudes! Let him work the way as he does as long as the company is benefitting from him..

Re: Dealing with employees

Hey Subramani,

I second your point. Most organisations are really confused with ideas abt company culture and try to enforce attitudinal changes even with performing employees. What they dont realise is that under the pretext of blaming someone else's attitude problem they are actually forgetting to correct their negative approach of not being able to look at the positives in another person.

Chouhan
I would advice if the employee you are mentioning abt is adding value to your organisation is indespensable, please do not tell him he has attitude problems. Remember, most of the efficient people tend to have their own ways of doing things, may be that could be perceived by others as an attitude problem. Be good to them and they will be good to you. I am open for discussions on this...

bye
