I firmly believe we can not change another person. We can however make them aware of a personality issue and provide information on how they can change if they choose to. I have a friend that is great with other friends and most people but when he is with his staff at work he is domineering and almost abusive in his treatment of them. He treats most staff like children in that he does not respect their opinions and talks loud and over them when ever he disagrees. I am looking for suggestions of books or videos that address this topic so I can suggest he address this issue. We have already talked a little about this but it's not really improving even though he brings up communication and teamwork in weekly meetings. The staff is afraid to say anything so they just sit their quietly.
In the end it is his decision weather he wants to change or not but I want to provide him with the materials he could use to help him before he looses his entire staff. He is older but the days of managing with an iron fist ended long ago.
I want to help a friend so I'm coming to this board that is always so helpful, to ask for alternative suggestions.
Thank you for any approaches you may offer.
