Do you have a top performer who’s extremely competent from a technical standpoint, yet “rubs people the wrong way”? You’ve received multiple complaints about this person’s behavior; outbursts during meetings, derogatory comments to employees, even name calling. Their behavior takes a toll on employee morale, your work culture, and may even be affecting your company brand.
As the manager, you’re frustrated. You’ve tried to talk with them and help them see the negative impact of their behavior. They just don’t get it. You receive comments such as “people are too sensitive,” “they’re lazy,” or “you don’t know what happened, you weren’t there.”
Simply put, you’re between a rock and hard place
