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 detailed and 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 win-win solution you’ve been searching for.

But first:

  • If you are a person who has been told your style is “abrasive,” please click here for your 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, we invite you to complete our free risk assessment tool to assess the cost and risk.

Here’s the challenge your organization might be facing:

You have a stellar performer (perhaps a brilliant trailblazer), who has the organization’s interests at heart. But sadly, there are persistent complaints about this person’s interpersonal behaviour.

You’ve tried various solutions, with varying degrees of partial success. However, truth be told, you’ve also made lots of mistakes on the way and subscribed to common myths about this challenge have not served you well.

You want to retain this person, but the cost of doing so is becoming too high. Especially with the changing landscape where employers can no longer turn a blind eye on matters psychological health and safety matters, nor ignore harassment-free employment standard, etc.

You’re now ready to take action.
