Additional Information

Open the conversation with positive reinforcement of the employee’s skill and work habits. Approach the subject of assertion by explaining that if the employee does not contribute their ideas or skills to the department, then the department is not operating at full strength. Explain that the employee was hired based on their expertise and that their opinions and ideas are sought by colleagues and management.

Trainer Comments: When working with employees, it is important to always treat them with respect and care. This is as important to their success as it is to yours. A job well done is as important to people today as it ever was, and part of your job as manager is to help your employees achieve that goal. In many cases, when employees don’t complete their work appropriately, it is because they do not clearly understand what’s expected of them. They have not received the necessary training or instruction to do their jobs correctly.
