Hi ____________. Thanks a lot for meeting with me today. I get the feeling that there may be a difference between our preferred management styles, and that’s totally fine to have different outlooks and opinions. I’d like to figure out how we build a solid, positive working relationship so we can survive, thrive, and be productive.
Is there anything I can do to make you feel more comfortable when we work together? Perhaps I am being vague too often and we could all benefit from a little more clarity and communication.
We both have to work together, and I want you to be comfortable under my management. Above everything else, I just want this office to be a productive, safe place for everyone where we all have clear goals and duties. What do you think?
Note: Make sure you put emphasis on creating a positive relationship moving forward without getting too tied up in the current state of affairs.
