Needing to deal with poor behavior from someone (especially when it’s consistent) is actually our second problem. Our first problem is telling them.
If we tell them, we fear, they may overreact, under-perform, or leave. But if we don’t tell them, everybody else will overreact, under perform, or leave.
In your corner,
PS: We can’t, under the guise of development, sneak them into a program or have them see a coach to fix their behavior. Without the clear understanding that they have a gap between how they act and how they need to act, they very very likely will not change. Gotta tell ’em.
