’Tune your management style to your employee’s need’

Setting of the workshop:

Managing staff often requires a different approach depending on the situation and the staff member involved.

Situations:

  • Your employee has a problem, and you give her advice. After some time you find out that she totally has ignored your advice.
  • Your employee thinks he knows it all, but you notice he makes a lot of mistakes. When you address this, he starts to argue and to mope.
  • What do you do when your ICT-manager is good at his job, but at the same time, he is not able to motivate his staff to perform at their best?

Sometimes you respond with more directions; other times you respond by being more supportive by giving compliments. That goes well in a lot of cases; while in other cases, you might get disappointed or even angry at your staff for not performing at their best, thinking they should have done a good job, considering their motivation and working history.
