One of the most important things you can do as a manager is to ensure that all of your employees are rowing in the same direction. Employee conflict is inevitable. Learning ways to manage it and helping employees to be the best versions of themselves benefits everyone—the individual, the team, and the institution.
The most challenging part of being a manager is having to address employee transgressions. It is your job as a manager to understand and convey to the employee that their behavior is not acceptable but that you and the University want to see them succeed going forward. Delivering the message in the right way can help ensure that employees know you’re on their side.
As a manager, one of your primary responsibilities is to help your employees develop to their full potential. Part of that development is providing continuous feedback, both positive and constructive, on a regular basis. Performance evaluations are a way to formally document the progress your employees are making at certain benchmarks.
