Dalton Tanonaka Four Steps to Deal With Difficult Employee Behaviors

  • Giving and Receiving Effective Feedback — is a skill that always needs about as much exercise as your abs do during this pandemic. (Someone told me recently that they needed to socially distance from their refrigerator and flatten their curve!! LOL, can you relate? I sure can) People have a big appetite for feedback, so feed it.
  • Setting Boundaries?- People feel safer with boundaries, than without them, even if their initial reaction to them smells like dead fish… their respect for their leaders increases when boundaries are established and maintained.
  • Having Difficult Conversations — This is the step most people would rather sweep under the carpet. Feel the fear and do it anyway! It gets easier with time.
  • Follow Up and Follow Through — My favorite step because I get to say FU… meaning Follow Up and follow through… everyone respects a leader who sets a standard and holds true to it.
