This is where we left off:
…. Like any decision you make, you have to do your due diligence in making sure all the variables for that decision are at your disposal.

This is that “next post.” To title it differently,
Monday or Friday? Choose Wisely Part II
Tell you what. We’re having this conversation because there is a difficult conversation to be had about an employee’s less than desirable behavior. Values drive behavior. In scanning all our variables to make the Monday or Friday decision, let’s look at this from the standpoint of value alignment.
Choosing wisely between Monday and Friday [for difficult conversations] is quite easy for you if you have been diligent in your gifting of the Daily Five Minutes (D5M).
Ultimately, when you are managing with aloha, with the D5M in your practice you would have nurtured a circle of comfort between you and your employee for conversations at virtually all levels of complexity and emotional difficulty.
You will know them quite well: In Managing with Aloha, the D5M appears in the chapter on ‘Ike loa because it means “to know well,” and your employees represent a wealth of valuable knowledge for you.
