The time would come when the cat would turn around and attack after being chased for a while by the dog. That's what happened here. No need to sugarcoat it. Respect is reciprocal.

It's normal human reaction to express anger ? Must she plot and kill you before you understand that your attitude irks her because she is your "subordinate" ?

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

I am trying to imagine the scenario when someone walks into your business and demands to see the boss.

Why correct her if front of everybody?
Open correction sometimes helps correct others. I also believe you can't be bigger than your job. There are cases you can't look away from as the supervisor. Some infect others with bad manners that needs to be dealt with asap. It's only when it become your management style that it becomes an issue

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

Yes...And he was sacked that same week

I shouted at my boss 1month after I got employed. The man own too much abeg.

Sometimes is good to let your superiors know you ain't a slave, stupid or a pushover.

By the way my boss respects me more now after that incidence.

Re: Have You Been Shouted At By A Subordinate At Work Before? by cooooooks(m): 6:37pm On Aug 26
What do you mean by "seems".

My friend relax.

Now, if you have ever made a pass at her, your shouting at her could be perceived as harassment over her refusal of your advances.

Never shout at your staff. That is my opinion and experience. In my own times, I always use rationality. Emotion always comes after rationality. Including when positive.

RuddyFusion:


Thanks for your detailed response
It seems at some point I raised my voice but not literally the way she did as if we were in a market place....my reaction is a build up of frustration of the girls other past work related misbehaviour.,...hope to wake and handle things better going forward

If you have disrespected her, you should apologize to her and every other surbordinate you might have shouted at too. Surbordinate is no slave o, they're just under your leadership.

I don't have much tolerance for disrespect.

My MD, as in oga patapata spoke to me in a way felt it's disrespectful, i called him for a meeting right the next morning btw two of us and i made it clear he should consider I'm an adult anytime he want to vent or correct me and so he should have addressed me better on the issue yesterday.
We settled it and that's how I got respect i deserve always.

I don't even care if he sack me at that point, I'm intolerant of disrespect. I will let you know no matter who you're, but in a mature and respectful way. Might not be immediately but i won't let it fly to avoid often reoccurrence.

Someone close to me once said " the way and manner you correct someone's mistake can also be a mistake" . Learn to correct in love. And never correct in public for another ear to hear. Its embarrassing. But I want to ask , when the lady does things right do you also tell her in the presence of other staff that she did well. Don't let your voice only Be heard when one makes mistake. When the person who praises me when I do good complains when I do bad, I take it better than the person I hear his voice only when I make mistake.

Why did you leave the job?
pocohantas:


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.

You might have shouted earlier without you realizing that your voice was high.

For her to have shouted back....there is something going on than met the eye. So be very careful of office politics.

So this is how it's done. All your official engagement with subordinates should change henceforth from verbal to written. Let it be black and white. If they messed up again...give them query. Anytime they go offline...hit them. Then copy your superior or HR after the third breach. And make sure you build all policy violation on a single mail so that at once your superiors or HR can see build up of All infractions overtime. This will speak for you when you want to appraise. Any one that have issues with your appraisal on them you can easily forward the exhibit to them for verdict.

They won't try it again.

I shouted at my superior. I had had up to the neck with her. She deducted some amount from my salary. I went to the office to vent my anger but I don't have a strong voice when I'm baring my mind and I tend to cry. I still bared my mind anyway. Mtchew

Well he has corrected her in public and she’s responded in kind and reported him to HR quickly

Don’t be surprised he might end up getting reprimanded instead of her

Some women are like that, they want to have everything.. A reason why when you break up a relationship with a girl, she'll do everything possible to beef you or even tarnish your image. E.g Johnny Depp aka Captain Jack Sparrow
