I need to make at least a 75-word comment on my classmate’s post
Blind Spot at Work
We have an employee in operations at my job that has his own blind spot. It is hard to manage him because he is extremely experienced but has an external locus of control. Another words, he expects everyone to be confident in his abilities and wants very little supervision or direction but when something goes wrong he is the first to blame everyone else and be the loudest in the room to point fingers. I tried managing him with independence and it got no where, so I had to dictate everything and right him up for his inability to get along with others with the threat of relieving him in order to get the best performance and longest period of employee peace in the section. Like transactional analysis, he acts like a child whenever confronted with conflict or a problem and he cannot see his blind spot to this.
