Don't let an insubordinate employee worry you. Here's
what to do.
An insubordinate employee can hurt the morale and success
of a business. But do these disobedient employees have another
side to them? In one instance, an employee might be disobedient
because of flawed policies and rules. If they are a popular
and instrumental key to your workforce then you may give
them heed and listen to their reasoning behind being insubordinate.
It could lead you to understanding why the business is running
not as smoothly as you would like. It could turn things around
with performance, and then you are the wiser employer.
Many insubordinate employees have trouble with authority,
which could be hard coded into them, or it could be a response
to outside circumstances. Take the time to get to know your
employees. By talking to them when they first are insubordinate,
you may uncover key issues outside work that have soured
their attitude and caused them to respond negatively.
Not all insubordination can be valuable. Most of the time
insubordinate employees cause poor work performance, and
bring down the morale of the work environment. By taking
the time to personally get involved in the mechanics of the
environment, you can weed out the bad attitude and foster
growth of positive criticism.
