Steve Harvey Allegedly Sends List Of Demands In Staff Email
Steve Harvey did a weird thing, guys. Like, a pretty freaking weird thing.
Twitter was shook yesterday when an email Harvey allegedly sent out to his staff started circulating. The email appears to be literally just a long list of demands outlining what his staff can and cannot do when it comes to addressing him in any way, shape or form.
Elite Daily reached out for comment from Steve Harvey, but did not hear back at time of publication.
He apparently says, and I quote, "Don't approach me" to his staff, and seems to say multiple times throughout the entire email that people can't speak to him unless he invites them to do so.
Steve... you good? Some people are calling it crazy, others say it's a valid thing for a boss who's also a celebrity to do. In my non-famous person opinion, this is no way to effectively communicate to your employees.
Here's the entire email:
Good morning, everyone. Welcome back. I'd like you all to review and adhere to the following notes and rules for Season 5 of my talk show. There will be no meetings in my dressing room. No stopping by or popping in. NO ONE. Do not come to my dressing room unless invited. Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED. My security team will stop everyone from standing at my door who have the intent to see or speak to me. I want all the ambushing to stop now. That includes TV staff. You must schedule an appointment. I have been taken advantage of by my lenient policy in the past. This ends now. NO MORE. Do not approach me while I'm in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly. Either knock or use the doorbell. I am seeking more free time for me throughout the day. Do not wait in any hallway to speak to me. I hate being ambushed. Please make an appointment. I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me. If you're reading this, yes, I mean you. Everyone, do not take offense to the new way of doing business. It is for the good of my personal life and enjoyment. Thank you all, Steve Harvey
LMAO, WHAT? WHAT IN THE ACTUAL HELL IS THIS?
Here's how people reacted to it.
Some people think the email is fine because he's the boss.
If you want to set boundaries, that's fair and it is completely your right to do so. But you're not going to get any positive feedback or your desired outcome by speaking to your employees like this.
I'm just sayin'.
