The code of conduct is such an underused strategy to successfully coach your team. The reason why it’s so powerful is that HR Professionals get buy-in from the team after everyone agrees to the “rules.”
The execution is easy. Getting people to understand the importance is not so easy because it’s new for many people and it will create uncomfortable, yet necessary change.
This is part 4 in the 5 part series. You will find parts 1-3 below to review or just in case you missed it.
Successfully Coach Your Team Secret #4: The Code of Conduct is the Police Officer
You may need to have the following conversation when a team member breaks the code:
“This is not about me attacking you. This is about following the code. We all agreed upon the code. I’m uncomfortable doing this yet I need to speak to you since it will benefit all of us. It is not about being mean or blaming you. It is about sticking to what we decided to do. What specifically do you need to understand the rules of the code of conduct? I’m here for you to make sure you join the rest of us.”
This is a perfect time for HR Professionals to address accountability issues with an individual who is being difficult and refusing to follow the rules.
