Dealing with difficult employee attitudes can be stressful for managers. They should consult company handbooks and HR for guidance, and ensure proper communication to effectively convey their message.

Dealing with employee attitude, especially when dealing with difficult employees, can be troublesome and is often a source of great anxiety for newer and more experienced managers alike. There are several steps that can be taken, however, to ease the process and alleviate some of the stress for managers. To begin with, if you are part of a large corporation, consult the company’s employee and management handbooks to ensure that all steps you take are under your authority and follow the company’s prescribed practices. You can also request a human resources (HR) employee to help you or handle a situation if it is under HR’s authority.

Employee attitude, in a negative sense, usually refers to employees who are not motivated to work or who are disrespectful to customers, co-workers and management. While employee attitude is not always an issue, when it is, it can be quite difficult for many managers to deal with properly. You must consider what tasks are your responsibility and whether you must handle a situation. If your company has a person in charge of HR, he or she may be better equipped to handle employee attitude situations and you may want to consult with him or her before moving forward.

When approaching a situation for the first time, you may want to consult any employee handbooks or managerial workplaces available to the company. If you own your own business, this may not be available. Most large companies and corporations, however, have extensive documentation detailing how employee motivation can be handled and what is expected of managers regarding employee attitude. It’s generally a good idea to make sure the steps you want to take are allowed by the company to ensure you aren’t punished for your actions.

One of the key aspects of dealing with employee attitude issues and any other situation with associates or employees is proper communication. Being able to accurately and effectively convey what you are trying to say can be important when dealing with other people, especially employees. If there is a situation with the employee’s attitude that you are aware of and need to intervene, it can be helpful to rehearse what you want to say. This gives you the opportunity to plan what you say to make sure you effectively communicate exactly what you want to say and to reduce the possibility of miscommunications or misunderstandings.
