I’ve Told Them 100 Times, And It Still Doesn’t Get Done

One of the most uncomfortable parts of managing a team is the policing.  Why do you have to constantly remind employees of the rules? What do you do if you correct a team member and they give you looks that could kill? What if you tell an employee to do something and they tell you that they don’t have time or seem to blow you off?  What if a worker says he’s going to do something, yet over and over again, he fails to get the work done?


Should you lose your cool?  Sit on your anger?  


Let’s look at why employees do or don’t do what they’re told and the best way to respond as a leader.  As usual Bash finds the right balance between hard data, personal stories, and earnest inquisitiveness.
