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 leader managing someone whose interpersonal style triggers distress, or if you are an HR professional, kindly complete our free risk assessment tool to assess the cost and risk.

Even if the person is a stellar performer who has the organization’s best interests at heart (they might even be a brilliant trailblazer), complaints continue to roll in.

You want to retain the them, but the cost of doing so is becoming too high.

You’ve tried various solutions, but nothing has worked. And common myths about this challenge have not served you well.

You’re now ready to take action.
