Weekly Tip Thirty

Handling Employee Reactions


When raising a performance problem with an employee you do not always get an open/accepting response.

Here are some tips for handling passive reactions.

The passive person can be quiet, withdrawn, disinterested and/or silently defiant. The person is simply passive.

 

You should:

  • Be patient – slow the conversation down.
  • Use silence – allow space for a response.
  • Ask a variety of questions – closed questions to get the person talking.
  • Use follow-up and probing questions.
  • Paraphrase.
  • Show empathy.
