As a leader, are you finding yourself making negative judgments about an employee’s behavior? Labeling people based on our judgments changes who we are – not them. Here’s how to better deal with that difficult person at work.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Some differences between behaviors and the labels we give them.
- Behaviors are provable but not the intent behind them.
- When you want to talk to someone about performance, whether it’s a measurable outcome or a behavior, it has to be based in fact, not opinion.
