One of my employees, only hired 3 months ago, was invited on a business trip with me (her immediate supervisor), my boss and about 10 other company employees. She was invited in recognition of the contributions she's made to the company in the short time she's been here and because she's seen as a "rising star". During the trip, we attended various meetings. At one of the meetings, my boss and I gave presentations.
I am disappointed this employee did not talk to either my boss or I the entire trip. She attended each meeting she was supposed to be at but left the room as soon as the meeting was over. I approached her once to make sure everything was okay - she said it was - but otherwise she made no attempt to communicate with anyone.
On a professional level, I think she missed an opportunity to network with her dept. managers as well as other company managers during the trip. On a personal level, while I thought she and I had a good working relationship, I am disappointed that she chose to "blow me off" the entire trip.
Gut check: don't say anything at all? Coach her on the missed professional opportunities? I'm inclined to leave my personal feelings out of this (although I think our relationship will suffer nonetheless). Or, coach her on both the professional and personal aspects of her behavior?
