Hi, Managers and Supervisors. How’s it going?
In this podcast episode, Patti discusses interaction with unprofessional people.
Sometimes in our careers, we have all worked with someone unprofessional. They may come across like they don’t care, don’t even know how to behave in a professional setting, or even realize their behavior is unprofessional.
How do most people usually respond? Avoidance! They would rather avoid the situation instead of addressing the unprofessionalism.
Because it is uncomfortable. Whether new or experienced, many managers and supervisors shy away from confrontation, thinking that the behavior will go away or disappear. However, in most cases, the behavior gets worse when it’s not dealt with and continues.Is there a way to help or mentor them?
Yes, of course, there is, by addressing the behavior. However, people can’t change if they don’t know their behavior is displeasing.
Calmly explain to the unprofessional person how to be treated with respect. Give some examples of what is respectful and courteous.
Here are some Self Reflections to Ponder or Journal about:
1. What were some of your experiences dealing with unprofessionalism?
2. What did you learn from these experiences?
