I have an employee who is a good performer, but does not seem to want to join in any activities that are social or team building.
We recently had a work party, that was right outside her office and didn't participate even after their name was called to win a door prize.
Several groups of other employees have invited her to lunch many times and she will turn them down to go out to eat on her own.
She is a very good employee at finishing complicated tasks, but I'm afraid this social awkwardness/ lack of networking will stunt their career growth potential.
Has anyone coached someone through this or have any suggestions on getting them to understand the importance of these interactions. Is this something you simply use role power to achieve?
