Happy Monday one and all! If you’re a new boss to a group, listen up. A few of your employees may not be on board and thanks to some tips in today’s New York Post, there are a few strategies to consider.
Gregory Giangrande, an executive human resources officer in the media industry, explains the first key is evaluating one’s staff to identify strengths and weaknesses “while articulating a vision and strategy for what needs to be accomplished.”
If you really want your team to succeed and thrive (and who doesn’t, right?), you’ll need to let them feel like their contributions count. Per the piece he points out, “But in order for a team to really thrive andthe business to succeed, people need to be bought in and feel passionate about the goals and strategy—otherwise they can’t put forth that discretionary effort to really make a difference.”
If they still maintain a poor attitude, then one bad apple may indeed spoil the bunch. He adds, “Threats don’t work, but if they’re not ‘all in,’ you’d do better to have them all out.”
