Yelling In The Hallway

Conflict coaching episode: what happened when Paula inherited a problem employee?

Show notes

There was yelling in the hallway...

This is a conflict coaching episode with my anonymous guest, Paula. Paula shares her experience starting a new job at a nonprofit. When she started her job, she inherited a worker who had been displaying innaoproiate behaviour with her co-workers and clients for decades. However, since no former manager had ever called her out, she didn't believe there was a problem with her behavious and blamed Paula for addressing it. This created a huge conflict, challenges and impacts. 

Join us as we talk about how the situation happened, how Paula was impacted and... that 'C' word.
