Honesty is best policy

Honesty is best policy

 

Once my team member Rahul came to me for Performance review

His performance was not good. It was discussed along with the development plan

But he had come up with some other Agenda.

 

At the end of the discussion, he asked that when he will be promoted

I was quite straightforward with him on the feedback because that is what I believe is the best way to drive development.

I told him that basis your current performance, you cannot be promoted at least in next six months.

First you need to improve your performance, then we can talk after six months.

 

He left and continued doing his work.

He returned after two months and said I want to tender my resignation.

I was surprised because it was least expected. I was expecting him to stay for some time and focus on improving  his performance.

And it was not easy to get replacement approval  for vacant positions

I also thought that I made a mistake by being honest with him about his performance.

If I would have been more diplomatic, probably he could have stayed longer.

 

Rahul moved out to a new job after one month.

I initiated approval for his replacement and also got the same in short time

Identified and selected a new resource internally whose performance was much better than Rahul.

I was happy now that Rahul has moved out and I got a good replacement.

 

After few months, I received a call from Rahul.

He was very happy. He got the role of his choice in another function, 30% salary increment and location near to his hometown.

I was also very happy for him because we could not have been able to give him all this

 

Now. I reflected on my candidness which earlier considered as mistake.

Actually it was beneficial for everyone because Rahul also got better job  and I also got a better performing employee.

It reaffirmed my belief that honesty is best policy with people.
