Tough Conversations With Employees
Managers need all the tools they can gather to help them address the concerns, issues and behaviors of employees. To find that simple book that provides a wealth of “how to” at the every day situation level is a great find. I came across “101 Tough Conversations to Have with Employees: A Manager’s Guide to Addressing Performance, Conduct and Disciple Challenges” by Paul Falcone and it does exactly that. Just look at the Table of Contents and you will read detail situations that managers have to handle as part of their responsibilities.
Being in Human Resources for a significant part of my work life, I read the book and saw immediately the situations that I’ve helped managers handle with their team members. How does a manager deal effectively and respectfully with an employee who smells and other employees are complaining about it. How do you respond to an employee that is being laid off? I’ve dealt with this personally many times and his advice is sound in answering the employee’s questions.
If you are managing employees, you will be relieve to have in your hands
a manager’s guide to handling a wide variety of employee issues.
