I have to agree with Bafana on this, the best possible action is to pull him to one side and explain the conditions, that if he doesn't play the ball, then he's not a team player, he's got no other alternative but to have him removed.Bafana wrote:Sack or transfer your husbands staff. He won't stop and will probably only get worse if your husband tried to handle this in a politically correct manner/.
Your husband is his boss and therefore has the right to get rid of him and your husbands boss will go along with the call as this is the right way to do things. If your husbands boss does not support him than your husband knows he should look for a better opportunity. in the least the big boss may chew the guy out as he will loose face by not support your husband and having to deal with the mess he is creating.
14 year means nothing - Not anymore.
Agree with your post and wished more Singapore Based or Singapore Satellite Offices of foreign companies had the same culture but they don't.Hactar wrote:I come from a country and company with a rather flat organisation structure and very casual communication lines.
I think this is pretty much the right way to approach the person. They need to understand that there is a proper reporting line, and they need to observe it. At the same time, the new manager needs to communicate that the experienced staff member is valued due to the time they have spent with the company, and the new manager could even suggest that the experienced (even if more junior) person actually guide them, and feel free to correct them, if they feel that something is not being done right.metroguy wrote:I sat down with this staff and explained her how I want things to done and she should be willing to adapt to change. I made it very clear that there was no reason to be insecure about her position in the department, just because there is a new manager. I actually valued her experience and the value it could bring to team if she used it positively.
I agree this type of problem is not common among engineers. But I think it is common among operations, finance folks. I have been worked all these departments.Hactar wrote:I see;
I haven't come across this, but I realise I have come across similar phenomena. I'll keep my eyes open in the comming time.
There's always a lot of backstabbing in companies; but the amount differs between types of company (at least back in Holland). High-tech Engineers tend to be less obsessed with it than other branches, I think. I guess the work itself is more of a fascination than climbing the tree for us. Maybe that also accounts for my lack of experience with this.
Without a doubt. I'd almost be willing to say it's more prevalent here than other industries. Most of my background is in the Petro/chem/construction industries and I'v seen my share I can guarantee.Bafana wrote:Try construction engineering - Very common.banker wrote:I agree this type of problem is not common among engineers.
