I truly believe (and it has been my experience) that most employees bring their best selves to work. Employees are generally very committed to doing a great job for the organization and in many cases will go above and beyond to ensure that the company is successful.
But the reality is that as a manager, you will be faced with managing staff who may not be engaged or aligned with your business culture or process. Some of the most challenging types of employee issues to tackle are tied to tricky but coachable behaviors.
The article 5 Problem Employees That Bring Down Companies – And How to Fix Them profiles some of these difficult employee personality types and proposes ways in which you can identify and hopefully salvage employees whose personalities fall into five problem employee categories:
- The whiner
- The praise seeker
- The chronically late employee
- The uncooperative employee
- The clueless employee
