But the real challenge... finding someone that you're delighted to have join your team and still being as delighted with them a year later.
The reality is that every team has a range of performers. Think about your own immediate team and odds are you have most of the following:
For a manager, this range of performance brings many challenges - and soaks
up a disproportionate amount of time and energy.
Time and energy that could be better used to meet the demands and
expectations of their own manager.
Unfortunately, this range of performance, brings the results - and the morale - of
the whole team down.
But, dealing with performance and behavioural issues are some of the most intimidating
situations for most managers - so things are left unaddressed.
