The Demanding Employee

Some employees require more time and some demand more time and energy. In some instances, your efforts may exceed your expectations of what you can rea­sonably offer while at the same time such effort seems unsatisfactory to the em­ployee. The employee may seek to control your time, holding the underlying belief that the amount of time received is a reflection of their worth.

 

Do:

  • Let her/him, as much as possible, make her/his own decisions.
  • Acknowledge your time commitments and set limits e.g., "Excuse me, I need to attend to other things".

 

Don’t:

  • Let her/him use you as their only source of support.
  • Get trapped into giving advice e.g., "Why don't you . . . ?"
