Once again I am asking for the wisdom of the group to help me with an issue. I am just starting to use the feedback model, must admit it is very difficult for me as I am a high C and very introverted. Am starting to use the coin tricks to force myself into giving positive feedback, don't always get through five coins, but working on it.
My issue is I have an employee who is always late. She just transferred into my department and her previous manager did not provide any type of feedback on this issue. I have mentioned in a meeting that I expect that my directs are at their desks working at their specific start times and I know she is pushing my limits as she was not impressed with the change to my department.
My question is: How would I best phrase the feedback? Tardiness really annoys me, but I know the feedback must not be about me. I do worry about the job getting done, and the effect it has on the other staff members who do try to get to work on time. I don't know how to phrase the feedback correctly without letting my personnel feelings get involved.
I know I am rambling and not providing a lot of information, but I am hoping the collective wisdom of the members will help me with this
