This occurs with managers as well and needs to be monitored carefully. In a face-to-face meeting with an employee or group of employees about a particular issue or set of issues, agreement is often the norm. However, once the meeting is over, there is often a tendency for the employee to dismiss the directive or desire expressed by the manager. This is often a result of poor accountability and follow up as well as having marginal employees that don’t take their responsibilities seriously. Be careful not to allow employees to walk away from a meeting and then not follow through as expected. If allowed, employees will simply dismiss future directive or requests as meaningless.
