Help With Employee
When it comes to needing help with employees its never to late to ask for help, in fact I read this great blog by Dr Sheri Jacobson 9 real reasons you always go it alone, she suggests that the benefit of asking for help are
- Reach our goals quicker
- Experience less stress and anxiety than if we tried to do everything alone
- Wasting time trying to figure out what we don’t know or aren’t really good at that subject
- A gaining more time to do tasks we are good at and mean something
The true benefits of asking for help is the emotional and psychological element you get from sharing a problem with an expert or someone you trust.
- Feel supported and valuable
- Allow others to feel supported and valued (trust)
So, when it comes to needing help with an employee what should you do?
Here are my top tips for needing help with an employee.
Identify the problem first, get a second opinion if you have someone close you trust
Spotting signs of stress
If you are stressed you may notice changes in the way you think or feel, for example:
- feeling negative
- being indecisive
- feeling isolated
- feeling nervous
- being unable to concentrate
Identify the causes of the problem, may make you realise it a fixable problem, there are many causes of conflict like
- Information conflicts – incomplete commination missing or ambiguous
- Values conflicts – clash in values leads to conflict
- Interest conflicts – lack of appropriate interest in work
- Relationship conflicts – trust clash of personalities
- Structural conflicts – lacking guides’ or skills to do the role
Be open to feedback
- Before you receive feedback set professional goals
- Ask questions to be curious
- Analyse patters of behave share your plan and ask for support.
Why it is important to get feedback?
- Feedback provides a positive criticism and gives everyone a chance to improve results and focus, this brings people together to engage in a healthy working environment.
Stay calm and show respect to employee
- Demonstrate respect in the workplace by encouraging people to give and receive feedback that is productive. Recognize employee achievements regular and empathizes with your employees and understand that life happens.
Write down expectations and consequences of employment
- An example of this may include arriving on time, following dress code, completing tasks on time, meeting deadlines, quality of work and displaying a cheerful outlook to co- workers and being respectful of any differences.
Look the most important thing is do not react on gut feeling speak to a professional.
Get help first and make sure you have all the facts before you react.
