Good morning, do you have a moment to chat? I’ve been observing you for a while and I’ve noticed that you rarely add your input out loud or collaborate with the rest of the team. I’m curious, is there a specific reason why are you hesitant to participate and be involved? We want to make you feel like you are in a safe, collaborative environment where your input is encouraged and heard. Remember, everyone on the team has something valuable to add – you all have such unique experience! Is there anything I can do to help you feel comfortable and participate more? Or do you have any other ideas to help you participate more with the team?
Note: Try to get the employee to talk about themselves on a personal level. See if there is something you both can relate to which may get them to open up.
