Thanks for letting me chat with you for a few minutes, I appreciate your time. I wanted to talk with you about your interactions with the team, and how we should address issues and conflict in the future..
You see, I want our team to be strong, happy, and healthy, so naturally I want everyone on the team to consciously focus on being positive, supportive, and encouraging to each other. Now, I understand that sometimes things go wrong, and sometimes a specific person is at fault. When this happens in the future, please remain professional and refrain from putting specific blame on anyone, especially in a public setting. Blaming others (whether accurate or not) can be perceived negatively and can damage your own reputation.
If you’re concerned about a situation like this in the future, please bring it to my attention and we’ll discuss it together before drawing attention to anyone or anything. Sound fair?
Note: Don’t allow the conversation to switch to any specific instance, causing the employee to explain or defend a particular case. Stay high-level and focus on how future situations should be handled.
