I have a direct that is type 1 diabetic and requires a specific morning and evening schedule for his insulin injections. For this reason, he arrives about 30 minutes after everyone in the morning and leaves 15-30 minutes before everyone else in the evening. What language would be valuable when giving feedback to be sensitive to his medical needs and still get my point across that his behavior is affecting the team? (I have received very specific pushback about this "double standard" when giving feedback about tardiness to other team members)
For some context:
I have given this direct feedback about his truency and his behavior improved immediately with regards to scheduling. His productivity and effectiveness however decreased sharply. When given feedback about this, I was given very clear pushback that his new schedule would be difficult to maintain due to the change in schedule of insulin injectionsof the new insulin his doctor pushback was . H
I have spoken with my boss about this issue and I was told to be accommodating to his needs. I am confident I have created a double standard and I am confident that I can correct the situation with help from the MT community.
Thank you in advance for any advice on this matter,
