Hello All,
I have a very strange problem here.
The employee whom we have hired, is a psychiatric patient. She quarrels with every employee here. also, she doesn't talk to her managers and VP of the company, with respect. she doesn't seem to be normal. how do i help her. she had a breakup with her BF a year back, and she's very rude with all men here. may be she has grudges over all men here.
Instead she fights with women too...
her work is very good. but her nature is not...
Please help.

Hi Geeta,
If her work is good means she is an asset to the company.
You can take help from some psychiatric doctor who can follow up clinical Therapy in 2-4 time meet and after that a follow up course to bring back her natural behaviour and confidence level.
Someone should understand her problem and try to help her overcome the problems , so that she can convert herself to normalcy.
Please understand it is bit longer process , but it will bring result.
I have followed this kind of method in my previous comppany and achieved positive Results.
Start Now.....

hi geeta ,
the persons like this have much potential and go ahead in life and always look to do well for the organization they r laborious and very talented . if u want to help her then try to talk with her daily and try to find out why is it so with her if she have any gruges with seniors then try to ignore that always behave well with seniors infront of her so she can learn and she try to behave like that in the coming days try to talk to her a little bit daily so that she came up from depression. u will see drastic change in her attitude with in few days but never let her down . try this

Terming an employee in your org as psychiatric Patient, is serious issue. First advise to you is show some respect. It is like calling someone MAD.
There are many ways you can help the person. You may take help of professional counsellers as well.
BUT FIRST, START TREATING THE PERSON WITH RESPECT.

Thanks Indra,
But instead of calling MAD, i mentioned as psychartic patient... and not a MAD person
Doctors call in these terms only...
I think u need to learn to call these people... with doctor's terminology...
Im sure ur new to this world...
Thanks for ur advise anyways....
:)
If u dont know, whom ru posting this message to... then u should learn to respect first....
And not show what respect is....
Good luck.... Anyways...

Hello Prasad,
Thank you so much...
I was trying to call some doctors'... but it will be too harsh, if we directly call the doctor here.. instead i was thinking if we could be able to take her out and spend some quality time... call that doctor as well... and then... ask the doctor to be friendly,, and then tk it forward...
what do u say..
Thanks,
Geeta

Hi Anurag,
I have also tried to behave as good as we can with our managers in front of her... but in vain...
She doesnt realise that... thought of sending a FW: message of etiquettes... but, im scared it should not hurt her sentiments..
So, Doctors will be the last hope..
Thanks alot..
Geeta

Dear Geeta,
I have learnt my lessons the hard way- one does not know why one behaves in the way they do-there are so many internal and external issues preying on ones psyche.
Talk to her believe she will open out and then will you realise her true self.

Colonel Jude

Geetha,
Will ur management bear the expenses for Doctor, and treatment back to normalcy.
In short, directly try to solve this matter, at your own level, intimate to seniors , and conduct meeting and take appropriate decision dont take individual decisons ..
THANKS

Hello GeetaK
1. How do you determine whether a person has a rude character OR has turned rude and needs psychiatric treatment ?
2. I am quite surprised as to how do you jump to such conclusions ?
3. Why should the company pay for psychiatric treatment? Do you have a policy on that ? Would you also treat any other disease say TB/Cancer the same way ?
If you want to take the help of a counsellor as a policy to help an employee for a short term its okay, but as a long term measure it should be a strict No.
Maybe the person is just taking advantage of the situation and Knows that you value her work therefore will TOLERATE her tantrums. Give her a warning and maybe you won't need a counsellor at all.
