Managing Challenging and Difficult Employees
- Turning 'Negatives' Into 'Positives'
How to deal with challenging behaviour at work?
Managing people effectively requires an understanding of an individual’s external and internal drivers as well as broad communication skills. Clarity on employees’ drivers leads to effective incentivizing and creates long-term traction. At the same time, developing communication strategies for dealing with challenging employees allows managers to monitor and measure engagement and productivity, and ensure individuals on the the team are productive and positioned to meet their targets.
When dealing with challenging employees, managers require a more robust toolkit to help them align employees with their teammates, contribute effectively to the organization, and understand how their performance and attitude impacts their own careers as well as the effectiveness of those around them.
