Coaching Cue Cards are designed to help jumpstart conversations that you may need to have with your employees. Modify as needed based on your situation.

There’s something quick we need to discuss here. I notice you’ve been delegating the work you’re given to other employees, and I wanted to let you know this is not a behavior I will tolerate.

I assigned the work to you because I know you’re the right person for the job. I know that you’re the one that will get it done the way I expect it to be done. If I thought someone else would do it better I would assign it to them, but I know you’re the one for the job.

Is there a reason you’ve been doing this?

Note: Give the employee a chance to explain their reasoning. They may be bored with tasks they’ve done hundreds of times or they may feel they’re ready for something extra. If this is the case, offer some more exciting work to the employee, but explain why it’s important they do the work they’ve already been assigned.
