I have recent hire who I am learning has an abbrasive tendancy to ask allot of questions to both myself an other collegues. This may seem normal especially for a new hire but what happens is he will ask several rapid fire questions about the same issue without even giving you a chance to complete your answer. I myself have experienced this and have found it to be stressful and rude. Furthermore I am hearing from other team members that he frequently engages in lengthly conversatons about project specifics with them which are taking time away from thier work.
During our feedback discussions he admits to being a bit hard headed but attributes it to his ambition and tenacity. I reiterated that he needs to be more sensative to his audience and respectful of others time. I also stated that I am letting him know because I want him to be successful in his position etc. What next? I've heard recently from others that the behaavior is continuing and he is quickly earning a negative reputation. How can I be more clear with this person without being demotivating?
