Solutions for Abrasive Leaders

Here’s what our ‘abrasive’ coaching clients taught us here at Bar-David Consulting: people whose interpersonal style rubs others the wrong way are perfectly capable of changing — once they have accurate data to work with.

If your organization is struggling to manage the challenge of a leader whose behaviour causes unrest in the workplace, our one-on-one, highly specialized program might be the ideal solution.

But first, if you are a person who has been identified as “abrasive,” please click here for a personal note from Sharone Bar-David.

If you are a senior leader managing someone whose interpersonal style creates distress in the work environment, you know that their conduct is bad for business. Whether they hold a management position or are otherwise a valuable contributor, the abrasive person’s behaviour causes distress, triggers staff turnover and sick leaves, and tarnishes your brand reputation.

True, this person might be a stellar performer who has the organization’s best interests at heart. They might even be brilliant trailblazers. Still, complaints continue to pile up. People might even refer to them as “bully boss” or a “workplace bully.”

You want to retain this person and their expertise, but the cost might be too high. Fill out our free risk assessment tool to assess the cost and risk — you might be surprised at what you discover.

You’ve tried various solutions, but nothing has worked. You know that buying into the common myths about abrasiveness has not served you well.

You’re now ready to take action.

That’s where our REAL™ Program for Abrasive Leaders* comes in.
