A consultant on my team went to the partner to complain about me as he disagreed with his performance evaluation on the project. Partner is questioning my leadership style now- how can I fix this?

If your performance evaluation came as such a surprise, so much so that he went over your head to the partner (!), there may be a leadership gap you need to address. Feedback should be timely, observational, and discussed openly, giving the person the chance to absorb and act upon it. If you waited to provide feedback until the end of the engagement, you may have let a big disconnect grow between what he thought and what you thought. That’s a recipe for disgruntled consultants...

If you give a negative review you may want to notify the partner in advance but also be fair. If you nit picked a performance evaluation u should expect a person to nitpick you. Be fair and notify the Partner in advance if is something that needs to be escalated

Did the partner come talk to you? How do you know your leadership is being questioned?

You sound like the ass here, just sorry you got caught. If you made a fair evaluation and have given the person consecutive coaching to improve and had data to support the evaluation the partner wouldn’t question you. Be better

They said that the maintenance person would be in at 8am (I called the front desk at 7:45am) and that they’d get it taken care of. Long story short, when I get back to the hotel at 6:30 pm it has not been taken care of and now my room stinks
