I have to admit this was one of the hardest blogs for me to write and I’m not really pleased with the outcome, because I think I let my direct report down. At any rate, I have 2 responses today. One submitted by one is mine and one was submitted by one of our readers.
Your action item: read both responses and share your thoughts about them. What’s your reaction to your manager’s response? What did you feel? What would you do?
Have fun, read, share, and if you want, send over your own response. What would you say to a direct report that sends a letter like this one to you.
