This was odd, but I believe it was the first of what could be a very unwelcoming and complete fall out of what something used to be.
When ex-employees get mad and begin the vilification process, know what you truths, capabilities, results, integrity and everything else is. It’s important in the process.
Let’s just say I used to be one of those ex-employees that would point, blame, discuss, and always rant about the ignorance I had to overcome in the process of overcoming myself. I guess you could say I was a disgruntled ex-employee, and I had to figure myself out. Yes, the boss said everything to me, marketing director said “white teacher instead of black teacher,” and I had to jump in-and-out of hoops just to get work.
Hey, it’s a process I can now make into a personal enrichment course.
Now, when you’re on the receiving end, that’s when things get really interesting.
An ex-employee of mind, who I appreciated so dearly, just started the beginning stages of vilification. I commented recently on an Eric Thomas post, and oddly she posted on my comment (after three days of not speaking to her).
You didn’t practice what you preached in our one year of a friendship.
Ummmm? How so?
Now, most people know who I am and what I represent. When I had first met her, I had doubts because of the weird things she would say, also the ranting she would do on a constant basis at specific individuals and always talked bad about individuals.
Even before that, she had messaged my content writer and said, “I don’t think you will work for him anymore. I don’t think he will work with Motivational Mentors anymore.”
I laughed with my content writer, in an abrupt manner, and said “how does she conjure up this madness?” Both him and I had a really good laugh, but I just said “ahhhh that’s just ________.”
Two days later, it became apparent that she was becoming someone very odd. Not only that, the people who I interviewed once before are now contacting me. She’s trying to — in a way — turn some of these close people against me. So, this was the perfect time to address this issue.
- If you don’t hold your half of the bargain and don’t continue getting better, there’s nothing else I can do. This could’ve happen because of me, or possibly you taking me granted.
- 100% Accountability. If I no longer need your help, it’s because you’re not improving and making my life easier.
- Whatever you say about me is perfectly your opinion, but I know the values I represent.
This post was on a public page. I’ll give her two strikes. This is her first and last one. If she’s going to stalk and comment on things in regards to the companionship we had, I will have to block and ban her from all my pages. It will take a solid 6 months for an individual to overcome that, but you have to quickly address the issue.
- Ask your employee for a follow-up talk. Ask them what’s the problem. Heart talk preferably.
- Address the issue in bolk via your platforms — not to clear your name, but to provide clarity.
- Let things blow over.
