Many people ask me how I define success. Success is being prepared, working smart, not giving up, surrounding yourself with open-minded people, and constant learning. Excellence is part of the equation.
We all work with people who do things just to get by. There are times when certain people just can’t push themselves to be the best that they can be.
Leaders have the tough job of deciding who stays and who needs to be dismissed. I help leaders manage mediocre employees who need that extra motivation. Training is definitely an answer for some employees. At times nothing seems to help.
How have you turned around a mediocre employee to become the department’s star?
