How to Manage Personal Power in a Team Setting?
Cora Montanez, Manager, United States

Seeking help. Suggestions/recommendations how to handle a (airport) building maintenance crew who are all capable tradesmen, but cannot get along. There are five in this crew and no formal leader. There is a self-appointed leader who is known to be a bully by the crew members. Bullying, meaning that he checks up on their work and suggests 'strongly' other ways of doing the job. That way is usually 'his' way. I have sent him to several interpersonal skill building class and so on. He has been counseled and warned. His behaviour gets better then slides right back. He is an excelllent worker and very talented, but cannot get along with his co-workers. They do have a supervisor, but direct supervision is not needed per se. They work alone or in teams depending on the task. Suggestions? Thank you.

Why not let the worker work alone?
To build team work, you may want to rotate job functions for a small time so that staff work together to understand and learn each others tasks, this forced interaction may help bonding...
Otherwise, my suggestion is to ask the team or the individual workers on suggestions as they may not see any issues from the behaviours...
Ascertain acknowledgement from both team and worker not able to get along, then understand WHY? Ask the why questions 5 times or more... To get to the real issue/s.
Then plan action appropriately. But WHY is the key to any positive and successful remediation. Hope that helps...
