Hello all you chefs and greasy kitchen guys and gals out there! I am the chef of a restaurant up here in BC, Canada, and I am asking for the advice of some learned colleagues in the field of effective communication with a particular employee/cook who likes to whine, bitch and carry on about every facet of his poor, unlucky life living in the heart of the most beautiful place on earth. How do I tell this person that his utter negativity is bringing down my people and to knock it off before I deep fry his face? How can I do this without making him cry? I am getting really annoyed with this, and would like to effectively put an end to this without any bad feelings or me being left short-handed(which really is my only concern). Could some one help me out, please? Thanks all.
