Insulating Poor Performance Before Its Too Late

first_imgPoor team performance can take its toll on individuals, but the collateral damage it causes often goes unnoticed until it’s too late. Underachieving may begin with one person, but it can quickly spread if left unchecked. Patty Azzarello, founder and CEO of the Azzarello Group, believes that the fate of employees should be dictated by their effort. As she writes in a recent article for TLNT, if they can’t do the things that are being assigned to them, a manager must position them to perform before writing them off. If training, mentoring and other efforts still produce the same results, there may be nothing left to be done for the employee.But if the employee is simply unwilling to do what is being asked of him or her, that can be a far more dangerous scenario, Azzarello writes. Apathy and ambivalence are contagious inside the workplace. If others catch a whiff of this, they may adopt this same mantra — after all, the other employee is collecting a paycheck with minimal effort, she explains. And it is the role of managers to immediately curb this behavior before it pollutes the company culture.For more on insulating poor performance before it’s too late, read the full article by Azzarello.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img
