1. Can you recognize signs of insubordination within your organization?

2. Do you keep records of insubordinate behavior?

3. Do you have an intervention plan to handle difficult behavior?

4. Do you have a strategy to prevent insubordination within your workforce?

5. Are your employees aware of company policies on insubordination?

If you answered no to three or more of these questions, you need to reevaluate your workforce and assess the need for intervention and prevention plans for difficult behavior within your employees.

Bear in mind that developing a prevention strategy will not only help to reduce incidences of difficult behavior, but it will also help you feel more comfortable intervening when insubordination occurs. Don’t forget the importance of training your staff in conflict resolution, communication and interpersonal skills, and make them aware of company policy on insubordination.
