I've copied a post below from another group. It's not my post, but it really got me wondering what to do in this kind of situation. I'd really like to get feedback from this group.
Here is an interesting situation that I did not have to deal with in the past. I have an employee (Sr. manager level) with the following attributes:
- Very intelligent, smart, hard working and makes all deliverables
- Great knowledge of the product history as the product has been around 7+ years
- Knows customer deployments and can help resolve field issues quickly.
Lately, I have seen quite a few mood swings that can change her personality from an easy going person to one that is very upset and shouting at peers.
This is beginging to have impact in the workplace. Given all the positive attributes, I am looking for best way to discuss this topic and help the person and overall situation.
Given that we are a small company, we don't have formalized HR department. I would be interested in getting some ideas to approach this issue in the best possible way.
