One of my team members recently sent me an email complaining about my expectations and how I should do my job and how I need to lead/manage the team. He later admitted that "he could match my expectations,but not everyone can" he was "speaking on behalf of the team" This is honestly the first time I have ever heard any grumblings about my expectations.
I am happy to receive feedback but the way the email was worded was not okay and rude. I spoke with my team member explaining I understand his frustrations around some points but to send an email in that way is not okay. I also explained that it isnt his role to manage people and that was my job to do that, so he should remain focused on his tasks.
I have now found out he has been sharing the email with the team, and gloating about how he has "told me straight"
I find this behaviour completely distructive to moral and underminding!
Has anyone got any advice on how to address this new problem!
