One of my clients I’m coaching to new heights recently sent this e-mail to me with an update:
“I made the move and fired Bobby. It was not easy on many levels but it’s done now. The move put me back on the truck which I’m not happy about but the decision to fire Bobby was one intended to force some improvement long-term…gain…and not make me happy today.”
My lesson and message this week is very succinct and to the point. How many Bobbys are there at your place and what are you waiting for?
Success is a marathon, not a sprint, and your success is dictated by the people you have on your team. Nothing moves a company forward faster than great people and nothing holds them back more than poor performers. Struggling with these types of issues? We can help; call us today; your success depends upon it. Tell the Bobbys on your team, you love them, but they just can’t work with you anymore. What you don’t realize is: you’re doing yourself, your team and Bobby a favor!
