Two weeks ago it happened to me that a young guy were ordered to help me dressing a machine into insulating walls. This young guy didn?t like his task and behaved insufferable from the early morning to the late afternoon. He never found a good word, his face had an unsatisfied expression and he wasn?t helpful. I wondered why that was. I asked him about his feeling, he gave the answer that everything were O.K. and he didn?t follow my instructions. Not only that, he defended against my advice and did what he wanted to do. So I let him do what he wanted to do and everything went wrong. I think he didn?t believe that I?m a proficient mechanist (just that), although I?m in the age of 47 and he was 22. I think not only my age were important to reach the goal our employer set for us, but also the proficiency. For example, he complained that he would like to weld and he were a proficient welder, in his opinion! So I requested him to weld with an WIG-welding machine. He tried and was needed to admit that he can?t weld with that machine. I tried to explain that to him and he didn?t want to know what I told him! You can rely on me when I say that I tried to be carefully with me explanation. How do you think you could reach that anybody like that young man listen to you, not only to make you a favour but to have a favour from that his own?
Or do you think that I?m pushy, to give him good advice?
