Hi Dr Flis,
In the last month I was promoted to a manager position, which I first thought was awesome! Four weeks later and I’m struggling with a real pain in the neck.
One of my direct reports consistently interrupts me, sniggers or makes smart jokes at anything I say during meetings. I’ve tried to pull them up, but they ignore me. Their behaviour is also ignored or accepted by the rest of my team. I’m in a new role and I don’t get why this person’s so special!
I just want to stop this behaviour before it impacts my team’s morale, and drives me insane.
Can you help me please?
Thanks Dr Flis,
