How does one deal with the issue of personal hygiene, or lack of? I’m not talking about appearance, but of bad breath, or of odors such as cigarette smoke or strong perfume.
Are these odors hindering work? No. Are they offensive? Yes.
These problems are not a “work” behavior, so I wasn’t sure if the feedback model was the proper approach. But I would want to keep any feedback as emotionless as possible, so as not to embarrass the employee.
I am a new manager and new to Manager Tools. I’ve been concentrating on the O3, Feedback, and DISC podcasts this last month. I looked through the titles of the other podcasts and didn’t see anything that might relate to this. I also searched the forum for “hygiene” and didn’t find anything. So, here I am. Anyone know of a compassionate yet effective way to address this?
