Beverly - ACCURATE ACCOUNTING
Asses the Source of the Neediness
The first step is taking a look at what may be causing neediness in your employee. Take the time to consider both your employee’s past experiences as well as their current situation. There are several reasons an employee could feel the need to have their projects double or triple-checked, and figuring out the underlying factors is a great starting point to address the issue.
Begin a Dialogue
Once you’ve given the underlying reasons some thought, have an open and honest conversation with the employee. It’s crucial in this step to come from a place of understanding and problem solving; be mindful not to come off condescending or get impatient with your employee.
Set Clear Boundaries
When assigning work, be sure that you are clear with your expectations and deadlines. Think ahead to answer any questions your employee may have before they arise by giving specific and detailed instructions.
Reconsider Their Role and Responsibilities
If the behavior persists after implementing these steps, it may be a sign that there is a deeper issue affecting your employee’s job performance. Take the time to reevaluate your employee’s role within the company.
