Criticism is criticism and that is important to understand. It helps us think about the way we present the criticism and make it work for the better. Are we moving the person forward is critical.

10 Super Simple Tools to Regain Control When Someone Pushes Your Buttons

10 Super Simple Tools to Regain Control When Someone Pushes Your Buttons | Manage your Manager | Scoop.it

This is the time of year when many of us find ourselves stressed and dealing with people who push our buttons whether on purpose or by accident.

 

Buttons are those areas that when touched on by someone in the course of communication, make us react. Some are bigger buttons than others but everyone has them and we all need tools for handling the communication when those buttons are approached or pushed.

John Michel's curator insight, January 27, 2014 6:21 AM

No leader likes to see an employee fail on the job. From the moment we start the recruitment process, through interviewing, hiring, and training, our goal is to set up our employees for success. It takes a tremendous amount of time, energy, and expense to bring new people into the organization and ramp them up to full productivity, so it’s in everyone’s vested interest to see an employee succeed. Yet we all know there are situations that, for whatever reason, an employee struggles on the job and there isn’t much hope of turning it around.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, January 27, 2014 7:28 AM

Excellent scoop John!  This is a difficult area for many reasons and this article is very helpful. 

 

From the article:

 

5. Blames others, makes excuses, and challenges authority - You know the incredibly loud sound of air raid sirens used in civil defense situations? That’s the sound you should be hearing if you have an employee with a track record of blaming others and making excuses for his poor performance.

 

Troubled employees will often challenge authority by trying to lay the blame at the boss’ feet by saying things like “You should have done this…” or “You didn’t address that problem…” or whatever the case may be. If you have an employee who always seems to be involved in drama, ask yourself “What (or more appropriately ‘who’) is the common denominator in these situations?”



6. Distorts or manipulates the truth - I’ve dealt with employees who were very skilled at manipulating or distorting the truth. In whatever difficult situation they were in, they would find a kernel of truth to justify and excuse their involvement to the point that I would feel compelled to side with them.

 

I learned you have to be discerning and consistent in your approach to dealing with manipulative people and make sure you document your interactions so you have sufficient data to support your termination decision.

An interesting and helpful approach.  I am going to think about my three words today.

(From the article):  This isn’t about goals.  Goals are different from the Big Picture.  Goals are the stepping stones to help you accomplish your Big Picture.
 

This isn’t about resolutions.  Resolutions, which rarely work, are about changes you try to make at the beginning of each year. The road to hell is paved with failed resolutions. (Don’t get me started.)


Think about your Legacy, your Vision, your Purpose, your Mission and boil it all down to 3 words. Then use these 3 Words to guide your decisions, actions, activities, and forward progress in 2014.

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement | Manage your Manager | Scoop.it

So what engages employees? The drivers differ region to region and person to person, but employee engagement is largely about social connections happening in organizations and aligning work experiences with employees’ cultural needs.


What works varies by industry, location, company size, and how much money and resources the organization has to invest into developing its culture, and its value and philosophy around employee engagement.


But there are factors that all highly engaged workplaces have in common.

  1. Silence – A quiet mind helps ensure a successful outcome.  Be still and allow the mind to quieten as often as possible throughout the day. From silence the mind is more able to identify the right choices for the road ahead.
  2. Sense – Be in the moment. Learn to really ‘listen’ to yourself and others. The local environment provides vital feedback, ‘feel’ this feedback, tune-in and act/adapt accordingly.
  3. Strategy – Ensure clarity of direction for the meandering path ahead. What are your instincts saying? What really turns you on? What makes your heart sing? Why are you doing what you are doing? Follow your heart with a clear mind.  Allow it to navigate your transformation with passion and conviction.
