Re: How to deal with Behaviour Problem in the work place?

I absolutely agree with Wes, excellent post.

In the very rare cases of sabotage that I have experienced ( 2 only) the motive was so strong for the individual that the risk of isolating themselves from any group cover was put aside.

The behavior in both cases was a one off act in response to a specific event.

Analysis of the RC established process deficiencies and leadership concerns that led to the sabotage in both cases.

In one case following some significant changes to process and leadership and some help for the individual, the person was re-instated and still works with the company today.

Therefore I would completely agree with looking again at the cultural, and other direct leadership issues, also examine the robustness of the process that allows the operators that interact with it to adjust the output without consequence.

People require reasons to do things, motive is part of all of our make up.

It is very difficult to understand that an operator deliberately sabotages products that would ultimately lead to his or company's loss.

Dear Cove,

it's been a long time ago since my last post.
i need your help to share me some of your organization experiences.

around last year i've got a lot of claim from customer,
after then i just doing some improvement --> Man, Machine, Method, Material and else.

but i just know that all improvements that i do is useless..
claim increased. and now i realized the problem is Behaviour.

now what i do is just doing some 100% check before delivery / shipment to customer, and guess what i've got ?
i still found some NC parts.

and the thing that shocked me was the production operator told me that the man that i instructed to do 100% inspection check sabotaged this NC.

my question is how operator have that kind perception.

around 2 month ago, all operator just been trained about how to change behaviour - seminar, but until now not seen any improvement.

what do you think cove ?


Dear Friend, I don't think it is behavioural problem and your training is not a solution for this. I presume, organization lacking powerful and knowledgeable ruling personnals (Managerial level or above). I also presume the skills of labours is also less to understand what and why? I feel, if you try to understand their heart friendly - i mean what they want or for want of what this is happening etc. then you can come out with a solution. I believe problem can be resolved even by a normal person by doing so.

Regards, Maheswari

I think you need to be more closer to your employees .. you need make them to trust in you
you can use a fishbone analysis about your problem with the company behaviour with the participation of the employees and see what's thier problems and what is the root couse of increasing the customer claim

Re: How to deal with Behaviour Problem in the work place?

I work in an environment where the majority are hard working and diligent.
They know that they are all responsible for the quality of their own work.

IF a person in our plant was deliberately sabotaging the product a general warning would be issued.
If we then found evidence that the person was still sabotaging the product, I am certain that the management ( Production / Quality / General management ) and the other workers would support their dismissal.

Maybe not so nice and touchy feely, but there are others who appreciate that job.
