So, as you reported your subordinate to us now, what do you want us to do. Definitely you've not been nice to him/her.

Today while correcting a subordinate at work on what she did wrong, she shouted at me out of blues in front of other staff members claiming that I was shouting at her, while all I did was point out what she did wrong......A few minutes later she's already at HR accusing me of repeatedly shouting at her....

It's the first time I'm experiencing this, having not done something similar to any of my bosses before, I'm at loss at how to deal with this. HR has asked me to send in my report so they can follow it up, but I don't just know if that will take care of the root cause of her actions today
for me, whenever I experienced wicked people like that, I activate violence mode immediately, that's why I can't work under anybody. My last employer called police for me, I broke one of her hand before police arrive, when I return from cell after 3days, I went back to the office to pack my remaining stuff, my guy ran away thinking I came for another attack. No peace anywhere. Violence is encouraged in this wicked society. But now I have more than 30people working for me and I pay salary. You can never differentiate who is the director between me and my workers because of good working relationship

Most times women. They lacked decorum. They'll just started shouting like they in a face- I face you compound fight. Whenever I'm involved in such situations I just leave the person there and issue a query straightforward
Avoid getting in a fight with a lady at work or anywhere. The wey they will start shouting on top of their voice na you go dey beg her to stop sef. Many of them are mannerless and petty.

Exactly, I wasn’t literally SHOUTING. But I was saying a lot.

- Why are you out to frustrate me?
- Would they add my salary to yours?
- Have you ever wondered why nobody smiles when you are in this unit?
- Ordinary charging point, you colonized.
- Your former assistant left, is it until I leave you would rest?
- I know you are already thinking of how to give me query, go ahead and type it. That is your system in front of you.
- Ever since my first day, it has been insults and threats. What is it?!!

When I was done, another unit head stood up from his seat, walked to my desk and gave me a handshake. It was more like belling the cat.

My boss looked at me for about a minute, called my name, packed, shut down and left. It was about 2pm that day.
My sister, I know you will be an Igbo woman

If you were self employed, you wouldn't be going through all these embarrassments...

Anyways, an organization without order is like a child playing with a loaded pistol.

She should be called to order.

You are not the HR!! If you ever mind business that insult could have passed by, leave HR work for him/her besides, if she's wrong will the blame come to you. Except is a joint work which I thought it.

I too know they put person for trouble sometimes.

Some women have this thing about lying that u asked them out and they declined, thats why you are harassing them! That is why u have to be tactical in dealing with this and make sure your hands are clean! With all that in place you have a case. Don't hesitate to write rhe report. I have been a victim of such character, so i know what am saying.
Note also that if she gets away with it, she will do it again, that is how those kimd of women behave.
As an HR practioner, I know how these things play out, if u don't have sufficient prove, guy u might be nailed for what u know nothing about, so be sensible in dealing with the issue.

I think I am guilty of shouting at my subordinate was their wrongs , especially when I have corrected the same error over n over.... Each time I raise my voice, I later on try to help them erase my initial shout from their mind ,usualy with a joke:
1. So they know it nothing personal. Just work!

2. re-iterate the need to take caution and to know the likely consequence of their action or inaction.

Even if the blame does not come to you for her wrong doing, would you watch and let one person rubbish the work of an entire team?
Where i work, we have a slogan that says "if u see it, own it" because if u choose to be unconcerned, that error/wrongdoing might come back to hunt either you, the team and by extension company! Not all matters need to get to HR before they are thrashed out!

Most times when you shout, you will not know that you are shouting. You can have a one-one chat with her. Not everyone loves to be shout at. Shouting people down bruise their self esteem and they usually fight back by shouting in return

The generation of Eve are unpredictable. Correct them openly, you are shouting, correct them one on one , you are harassing them sexually.
Next time, let your pen sign the correction and copy HR.

I get you but i guess you are talking from the point of view of a coworker, if u are a supervisor (direct or indirect), would you do that? However, as a coworker there is a way to correct an erring colleague that would not result to argument or quarrel. But my advice as an HR practioner, when u see someone doing the wrong thing whether they are a member of you team or not, pls speak up! Your speaking up may safe lives! You also said something about saving u stress, not speaking up may save u stress but speaking up may save ur life!

Sharp babe, she first embarrass you in front of the other staff then went ahead to report first to HR. They say when a child is dancing in front of the market square there's a masquarede drumming somewhere.

Understand that when people exaggerate their response ,it's likely comes from pro longed provocations and other informal arrangement. So here are my questions;

1) how did you correct her, did u raise your voice or insult her.
2) what is the age difference between you both
3) who is older at the organization
