Eq #21. Doing a Fair Share > Emotional Intelligence Exercise 21

Emotional Intelligence Exercise 21

  1. On the bar chart below, draw in a bar for each of your employees and one for yourself. Draw the height of the bar relative to the contribution you think each person makes in the workplace. The bar to the left is marked as ''full contributor.'' Draw bars for yourself and your staff relative to that bar.

  2. Look at the bar chart above. What impact do you think the lower contributors have on you? What impact do you think the lower contributors have on their co-workers?

  3. Everyone has an occasional day when they are not contributing at the level they should. However, if the situation occurs frequently, this can cause great resentment in the leader as well as with coworkers. Are your low contributors on the bar chart above causing serious resentment or anger in you or others? If so, then you must manage the situation by addressing the problems. Is the situation serious enough to impact you or others? Do you think action is needed to address the situation? If yes, answer questions 4 and 5.

  4. What actions have you taken to address the lower contributors? Examples of actions could be: discussed and clarified expectations with the employee; held conference(s) with the employee to discuss ways to meet expectations; retrained; discussed the situation with your boss; asked others such as HR for guidance; documented the case; issued disciplinary action; continuously monitored the situation; provided on-going feedback; addressed the situation in the performance appraisal process; or talked to the union steward.

  5. What further action do you intend to take? When? If you're unsure, get some help on this. It's too important to ignore.
