Confrontation sucks. That's why most of your managers don't do the coaching they need to.
This isn't going to help. Someone got murdered in my city while they were delivering performance feedback. More from the Birmingham News:
"A 50-year-old Birmingham man has been charged with murder in this morning's fatal stabbing of a supervisor inside a Center Point grocery store, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
John Boyd Jr. is being held in the Jefferson County Jail on $75,000 bond in the death of Edward Shane Hammett, 26, of Center Point.
Chief Deputy Randy Christian said the stabbing happened in the butcher shop of Food Giant of Birmingham as Hammett was talking to Boyd about his job performance. "He had counseled the suspect about work performance yesterday and apparently today they had an argument culminating in the suspect stabbing the victim to death," he said. Hammett had worked at the grocery store for 18 months, Christian said. Boyd had worked there three months, he said.
Officials with Food Giant said despite the performance review discussion, Boyd had not at the time of the incident been in danger of losing his job.
"It's a tragedy ... especially at this time of year," said Wade Payne, operations director for Food Giant in Birmingham. "Our thoughts and our prayers are with Shane's family."
Don't even know what to say about this one. Get away from areas that include items that can be used as weapons, etc. You think I'm joking, but I'm not.
Be careful out there. Keep giving feedback.
