Employees with Bad Attitudes: How Managers Can Turn Them Around

Duration: 60 minutes

<<UNLIMITED PARTICIPANTS -- INVITE YOUR ENTIRE TEAM!>>

When you’re faced with a workplace troublemaker, it’s easy to point the finger and say, “You need an attitude adjustment.” But the most effective managers also look in the mirror. They realize that bad-attitude employees are often a product of ineffective leadership, organizational dysfunction and poor communication.


WHY ATTEND

Do some people in your company need an attitude adjustment? Maybe you know them:

  • The guy with the time clock” mentality who does the minimum but expects generous raises.
  • The lady with a “the company is out to get me” approach to every situation.
  • The employee that thrives on gossip and creating drama.

When we see this kind of behavior, part of the problem is often the employee’s boss. Managers send the wrong message to troublesome employees by tolerating negative attitudes, turning a blind eye to bad behavior and fostering an entitlement mentality. The result: Negativity grows, company culture becomes poisonous, and productivity crashes.

How do great managers get employees to understand that by doing more for the company, they’re doing more for themselves? That’s the subject of this no-nonsense presentation by Carol Hacker.
