– a lot of decision-making is delegated to the “management support team” i.e the people who do the actual work
– that several of the proposition has proven to be impractical, like returning account balances to zero when people leave

Eleanor Sharman 23/October/2022 Author 1. The first stage of addressing disrespect is to ‘call it out’. This involves telling someone specifically and objectively what it was that YOU experienced that was inappropriate. You make an ‘I’ statement.

To strengthen your association’s ability to manage disputes, we recommend that you:
- appoint a member to be in charge of receiving and dealing with complaints
- set up a system to record, track and monitor complaints
- keep a record of any complaint that goes to mediation or court.
You should also consider adopting a grievance procedure. If you do not have a grievance procedure, the OFT has a draft example which you can use.
