Losing a Bad Egg
The client I wrote about last month in “The Bad Egg” updated me with some news – this negative employee got fired.
While I persist in believing he might have been salvaged, leaders need to guard against spending all of their time on their broken people and their under-performers. Good people deserve attention to – and will reward it more.
The good news is that my client’s firm is free of a source of negative gossip and unneeded friction, and the former employee is now free to find a better place to work – perhaps one that will guide him into better behaviors.
