A reader writes:

I just lately employed an worker in a pinch as a result of we thought he may fill a niche shortly and effectively, nevertheless it seems he was horrible and both dishonest or in denial about his personal abilities. He didn’t pay attention or observe directions, and his customer support abilities had been terrible. Many occasions, even after after teaching, he was unable to finish duties accurately.

After six months, he determined to resign. He wrote an e mail saying that he couldn’t work for me anymore as a result of I’m offended and hostile. He additionally wrote that after talking with different staff, he has concluded that I’m an sad individual with anger points, and that he feels that making an attempt to vary the environment wouldn’t be potential as that is simply who I’m at my core.

It’s one factor to lift the problem that our skilled interactions weren’t constructive (which is legitimate, I admittedly misplaced my endurance with this man), nevertheless it’s one other for him to say that I’m an sad individual at my core. He doesn’t know me.

If I’m sincere, I simply didn’t really feel like I had numerous recourse, and I used to be offended about it. He pissed off me a number of occasions a day and I admittedly stopped placing forth effort to deal with his shortcomings in a greater approach as a result of I used to be uninterested in it.

I actually wish to set the report straight with this man, that he doesn’t know me personally and I’m not an sad, offended individual. I failed as a supervisor, however he additionally failed as an worker. Is that price it? Extra importantly, I wish to set the report straight with my employees. How do I transfer ahead with them?

I reply this query over at Inc. at present, the place I’m revisiting letters which were buried within the archives right here from years in the past (and typically updating/increasing my solutions to them). You can learn it right here.
