5 ways to handle an employee who does not work well with othersThe success of a manager largely depends on whether the team members are able to work together as a cohesive unit. This requires the manager to establish a work culture that fosters team spirit and have clear and realistic expectations from both the team and individual members. Varuni Khosla finds out five ways in which a manager can pursue this goal.
Establish a team culture
How team members work with each other depends on not only the company's values but also the norms set by the manager.In case some members are unable to work with the rest, an intervention may be advisable by an external consultant but active and visible sponsorship of the manager. In this intervention, a psychometric analysis can be done, said Sudeshna Basu Roy, cofounder of Marg.
Initiate team building activities
Use fun activities to build connections between a problematic member and the rest of the team. "Our bodies can't function by sitting in a fixed position all day. Invest some time and energy into nurturing that team member, cultivating your culture & sprucing up the space you share by introducing unique ways to bond," said Praveen Rawal, Steelcase India's MD.
Involve the entire team
Managers should also have individual conversations with the rest of the team members for a diagnostic perspective. It can be damaging to single out a team member in front of entire team and it's imperative to understand the underlying reason for the negativity and provide additional support, said Tusharr Kumar, marketing manager,Ducati India.
Reassess and realign roles
In some cases, it may be a good idea to reassess and realign roles and responsibilities. "If one still feels the problem is not solved, look at revising processes like how team members communicate, meeting styles, the norms of engagement, etc. Build personalprofessional relationships through team-building," said Suchita Dutta, executive director, Indian Staffing Federation.
Have an honest communication
A lot of managers shy away from having an honest communication with team members. Most people assume because they spend time with team, it should count as communication. But not many pay attention to cues. "The problematic member may have tried to communicate concerns but may not have pushed beyond a point," said Praful Nangia, partner, Hunt Partners.

At Microsoft India, caregivers to get four weeks of paid leaveNEW DELHI: Microsoft India on Friday announced four weeks of paid caregiver leave for employees who are looking after immediate family members with serious health conditions.
Family caregiver leave covers care of a spouse/domestic partner, parent/in-law, sibling, grandparent, child, etc. Last year, the company enhanced its maternity leave to 26 weeks and added to it surrogacy and adoption leave.
Male employees are eligible for six weeks paternity leave which also covers parenthood through adoption or surrogacy.
"We want our policies to be inclusive and as empowering as they can be to allow our employees to do what they want to do as their family needs them," said Microsoft's HR head, Ira Gupta.
"And that person doesn't have to be a new-born. So, we wanted to introduce maternity, paternity and caregiver leave." Caregiver leave is breakable and can be used by the employee in any way through the year. Microsoft, which has about 8,000 employees in India--over a quarter of whom are women--offers 20 working days as earned leave, 12 days as sick leave, three days of bereavement leave, besides some public holidays.
Consultants said this is a good first step in the direction of keeping people at the workplace, especially women.
