Looking for your opinion/advice. Humor ... finding things humorous, telling great stories, finding humor in situations, using humor to relax people, etc. has been part of my family for decades. It is something that several of my family members have always taken pride in. I have used humor and the skills that have insight into things that result in humor to create award-winning solutions for all aspects of human resources: onboarding, leadership development, change management, etc. While sometimes using humor can be risky, I usually only use tasteful humor with established work relationships. I started a job about 6 months ago and just had my mid-year review. I was told that someone on my team called me "Quirky" and that feedback was given at the same time that I was told that I need to check in with people to make sure that my direct style of communicating doesn't offend them. So I think the positioning of the two comments suggests that the comments were made by the same person. Look, I am an organization psychologist with many years of experience and I have a feeling what is happening here. What saddens me is that the person who delivered my feedback did not follow the SBI model to describe the word "Quirky." Without the SBI around a descriptor, it sounds judgemental and gossipy. SBI is Situation (what was the situation in which the comment/action/behavior was used), Behavior: What was the specific observable behavior and Impact: what is the impact of that behavior. Please give me your opinion on this situation. I hope I've provided enough information for you to do so.
