The Burn of Mistakes in the Workplace

Danger-FireI do not like making mistakes, it is hard for me for I have a high sense of honor and dignity as a employee. But when you’re the guide and someone makes mistakes in your absence, it hurts worse. You taught them and now when they fail some heat as to be taken by you as the leader, the supervisor.

Well that is fine we all have to take these bacon in our times in the leading position. It is unavoidable but time heals all wounds. While getting it right the first time prevents the wound. Communication is key to preventing most of these mistakes usually happening because of misunderstanding or assumptions.

But no one wants to nag and be on someone’s case reminding them of procedures and rules constantly. Rules mean nothing if there is not an important reason for it, so usually it helps for persons to understand why there is this long procedure to certain things especially things that can go wrong very quickly and affect the workplace productivity.

Understanding the consequences to the employee’s work environment is one thing but also how it would affect the other employees of the various departments’ productivity. Because if a employee falters his co-workers might not only find it harder to do their job but might not even be able to. Many employees usually do not take that into consideration until the burn of the supervisor raze them into haste.

We all make mistakes, but the proper communication between employees and supervisors can prevent most of these. Mistakes should not happen when they can easily be avoided unless it is of external sources out of our control. In my experience it is when the common ground is found and a firm understanding is reached when things get better and the integrity of the position is kept.

Anything other than that warns a of a worker that will never conform probably because they just do not care enough about the primary goal of their job.
