TRIPLE III TIME: Problem Employees & Time Management
One of the more “traditional” challenging leadership issues is dealing with Problem Employees & Time Management. Too often leaders spend way too much of their time exclusively dealing with one or a couple of employees who always seem to be adverse to the benefits of teamwork and setting a positive, progressive workplace example.
You know what I mean.
During my role as a Director, I would make it a major priority to share my time with co-workers on the most equal level as possible. Understandably there were times when problem employees required more time than was appropriate and truly, I felt the twinges of unfairness of attention to the rest of the gang who were on the job and doing their best everyday…EVERYDAY! And it was only by making time management a priority in this area that I believe I attained a pretty good balance of attention to all personnel.
The bottom-line for this TRIPLE III TIME: Problem Employees & Time Management message is to encourage all leaders/managers in all companies or organizations to prioritize time management among staff. This means: (1) avoiding allowing problem employees to maximize your time, (2) not enabling problem employees to draw your energy away from cool, new ideas and only focusing on negative issues and, (3) consistently “short-changing” the majority of your workers of your supportive and creative time
Quality time management on its own is an everyday challenge in all work/life situations. Is it easy to accomplish…no? But by making it a major priority in your role as a leader…you will attain the support and appreciation of those most important.
