Who is the negative disruptive force in your organization? You know the one...they violate every value you have posted on the wall and espouse in new employee orientation.
Can you picture them?
You're Too Slow
How long did it take for you to see their face in your mind? Three seconds? Maybe, one second?
Why are they still there? How could someone that negative, that you identified so quickly, possibly still be employed with your company?
That makes no sense to me.
You realize your employees know you haven't taken any action...so you're losing credibility while you're reading this post instead of doing your job, right?
Stop reading. Earn your leadership pay. You do more than attend meetings and approve payroll. You have to get into the difficult work of confronting...yes, confronting... behaviors that do not jive with your corporate culture.
It's not easy. In fact, it can be downright stressful. So what? Your employees, your organization, and candidly, for your own sense of self-respect, you need to get on with it.
Remove them from your organization today.
How About You
Make the decision to step up and build the team you want to have, not that you "inherited." That lame excuse works for six months, then guess what? They are your team.
What are you waiting for?
I'd love to hear from you.
