Power Post - Gasp and Flail

Look around your organization today.  Think about all of those employees and how hard they are working.  Run through a list of everything you expect from them today...this week...this year.  Think about all of the work they are expected to complete.

Now think about one of those employees who is struggling.  

You know who they are.  You're aware of them, not because they are a rising star, but because they need help now, or they'll never make it to next month, let alone next year.  That person you're thinking of needs someone.  They need someone soon, or a chain of events will begin to occur that will cost money and do damage: counseling sessions, hurt feelings, lost productivity, turnover, a search process, on-boarding, and orientation for their replacement.  Maybe you can stop all of this from happening.

Meet with that person this week.  They are gasping and flailing...and you can be the one that changes everything.

Be the difference.

I'd love to hear from you.

No Excuses.

  1. Jay - great focus as usual. I think it rocks that you are keeping ALL employees in your sights. Great post.

  2. Thanks you well know, without everybody involved none of the work gets done.
