Leadership Question – What Do I Do about that Unmotivated Employee that Does His/Her Job … But Who I Know Could Do So Much More?

By Kelly Vandever

Last week I was conducting a class for new managers and one of the exercises is designed to get the participants to work together in small groups to receive peer coaching on an employee who is “motivationally challenged.”

As I eavesdropped on one of the groups, I heard Owen say, “It’s not that he doesn’t do his job. He does what I ask him. He does a good job. But he never goes beyond what’s asked of him. He’s been there for 26 years. There’s so much he could be …

Being the Boss and Making the Decisions

by Kelly Vandever

“I need to shut that noise down now.”

My friend was speaking about one of her employees who’d been speaking up and making suggestions about how to do something at work.

“What? What’s that face you’re making?” she asked.

I’m still not used to the fact that my facial expressions give away the thoughts running through my brain…even though it happens to me all the time.

This friend knows me well. She’s even listened to my Permission to Speak podcast.

So I say, “Well, my podcast and the …

Respect

By Kelly Vandever

A friend was telling me about a conversation he was about to have at work.

He’s a manager of managers. One of the managers who reports to him has two employees who aren’t doing what she asks.

“I was in the meeting when they said they’d do it,” my friend told me. “But now that the work deadline is fast approaching, there’s evidence that they haven’t done what they committed to.”

“They don’t respect her,” my friend continued. “So she’s asked me to step in which is just going to …
