How about roleplaying a confrontation with a team member?

Today, let’s dive into the world of managerial #challenges. 🌟

You know, one of the most demanding aspects of being an effective manager, in my opinion, is #confrontation. 😬

It’s like climbing a steep ladder. When you transition from being an individual contributor to a manager, suddenly, confrontation becomes a significant player in your success story. But it’s a road less traveled, and it’s not always a smooth one. 🚀

The funny thing about confrontation is that it can be both the worst and the most rewarding part of the job. In many situations, it can work wonders. Take, for instance, a team member who keeps missing deadlines despite numerous reminders. Every time, you devise a fresh excuse to let them slide. Then, one day, you take a deep breath and address this behavior head-on. 💪

But there are a few not-so-friendly companions that might tag along:

  • The hesitation to point out mistakes. 🤔
  • The fear of retaliation and conflict. 😰
  • The confusion about goals and expectations. 🤷♂️
