My Staff Uses Continuous Jargon, Unpleasant Colleagues Want to Have Lunch Together, and more
My employee uses odd, repetitive jargon
I have an employee who has a very unusual habit. She uses the word “visibility” in almost every other sentence. For example, someone will ask him, “Can you tell me why do we give all our customers a free teapot?” And he will say, “Yes, this is to give them visibility on the ongoing tea.” There is more visibility on this issue, “” visibility key, “and” let’s rotate it by creating visibility. “She says so much, I will not exaggerate in saying that it is in every three to four sentences.
It is actually obstructing the ability of people to truly understand the potential.
I have addressed it together in one, and then it is going on, I try to dig deeper into what it means in terms of functions.
I have a meeting wherein they will have a big contribution. How can I address it or can I help to speak this heterogeneous, recurrent jargon which he is using? As you can see, I can use some visibility on this.
If this was just an annoying habit, but in fact was not affecting anything, then I have to say that you should give some feedback on it and then let it go. But since it is actually interfering in the ability of people to understand it, I think that you stand to emphasize it. (And in fact, it seems that it is so stable that it is probably affecting its reputation, which is actually useless for that.)
I wonder how so direct you were when you addressed it with him. Have you adopted a soft approach to try to say it to him how often he calls it and cuts it down, or you told him directly that it disrupts the ability of people to understand them and by using it Need to stop, period? The manager often takes the first, soft approach, thinking that it is about to soften the message. And sometimes it works – but often people will miss the message or they will not feel that the manager is serious about it (as opposed to giving an alternative suggestion).
So, as long as you were not very clear and clear for the first time, I will go back to him and say something like, “I know that we had talked about it in the past, and it seems like a small thing. But it is at that point where I feel that the ability of people to understand what you mean – that means that it makes you less effective and possibly disappointed others. I know that changing a habit is not easy in the night, but I’m asking you to work on it. Your work is good, and I want people to see it – do not get distracted by this habit.
The unpleasant coworker always wants lunch together
I work in the department of about 25, but my condition works closely with Jane. Jane is junior to me and has been in the post for almost a year. I am a close friend with my manager, and essentially in the second order in the department, and we often do lunch together, where both the work (not compatible with Jane) and social matters are discussed. Most of the rest of the department has lunch together in the dining room and anyone is free to join (which I do once a week).
My problem is that Jane has no friends to actually have lunch, and is constantly following me to lunch with him. If we do not have any problems, or I feel happy about being around him. He is a very negative person and spends his time complaining about other people of the company. I try to have lunch with him at least once a week, but I have stopped meetings with him from lunch before the lunch so that I am doing what is inevitable “lunch for lunch ? ” Avoid conversation. I am feeling guilty now that I am leaving him four days a week, and “What are you doing for lunch?” The conversation is getting weird. Should I give more time to him or not, how do I set a fair and kind limit?
Now you do not need to eat Jane more often than you are doing. Frankly, you do not need to have lunch once a week, if you do not, especially since she welcomes you to join the rest of the team in the lunch room. (But even if it does not happen, you will not be obliged to do lunch with him)
It is perfectly right to say that you are going out to do some work, or reading a book, or any other solo activity. It is okay to ask her to read something again, to ask her to read her expectations again, “I will not be available for lunch, as much as I have been doing – I am using that time to catch / read / receive work Clear some exercise / my head.
Your lunch is your own time, and Jane is an adult who can find out what to do with that time. It is certainly for you to eat with him on this occasion.
