Surly staff members

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by syapgp17, May 12, 2011.

  1. I am a school executive who has a team of 7 including 2 teachers who are quite negative, uncollabrative and sometimes will ignore other team members. Two of my team are young, keen teachers who have put a great deal of work into preparing prgrams of work that they are happy to be shared with other team members.Often there is not even a thank you from these teachers and nothing reciprocated. I have heard complaints from 3 people in the last week about these two and feel at a loss as what to do. I feel that saying something to them will only cause more upset and uncooperation - at least I have a level of rapport with them. Any ideas on how to deal with this delicately?

    Are they any good at teaching?
    I stopped sharing my planning with those that do not reciprocate or appreciate my efforts a long time ago. I think you have 2 options here.
    <ol>[*]Do not give them anything and do not expect anything from them. Let them get on with what they are doing as individuals rather than part of the team. The other 5 of you work together.[*]Pressure them into pulling their weight in planning with the support of your line manager if necessary (assuming the "school executives" have line managers)</ol>Is this the right thread for this?
