How do you manage disruptive behaviors?

Employees are a business’s best asset, but they can also carry a business’s highest risk. Employees are human and have good days and bad days. Sometimes those bad days can turn into weeks or months, and can wreak havoc on company culture and erode trust, communication and morale. Employees that bring personal issues into the office or struggle to deal with work-related issues are often seen as distracting, a time-suck, or not worth the effort. But it’s a myth that difficult employees aren’t good at their jobs; they can be very good at what they do, they just need a little course correction along the way.

Addressing behavioral or performance issues isn’t easy.

It’s almost always awkward or uncomfortable. But while working with difficult employees can be challenging, they present a great opportunity for employers and managers to improve communication and discover underlying chronic problems and remedy them. Open communication engenders mutual trust and respect. Solving issues can improve work performance and productivity, and loyalty to a company and mission. It is in everyone’s best interest to tackle the issues head-on. We show you how to handle ten behaviors like a pro:

  • Time management issues
  • Isolation-type behavior
  • Offensive language
  • Inability to accept feedback
  • Negativity or bad attitude
  • Not being a team player
  • Dress code violations
  • Crying at work
