Dealing With People Is Not Easy

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about displeasure of subordinates: Three team leaders went to the manager while I was off and told him we had communications issues. And also said they felt like I could not be approached because I don’t listen to them. What can I do before this gets out of control?

I have recently begun using a roster pattern introduced by my company. It has proved very unsuccessful with both team leaders and work shop crew. I was asked by a team if we could have something tried locally instead of using the roster. I agreed but only if we could get full agreement by everyone. This did not happen because of one individual who would not agree. I talked to the team leaders separately and said something about the individual that I now regret. The team leader then told the employee what I had said. Also all three team leaders went to the manager while I was off and told him we had communications issues. And also said they felt like I could not be approached because I don’t listen to them. What can I do before this gets out of control? Please help.
