As a boss you’re expected to set an example and represent the company that employs you. You’re also expected to teach your employees to do the same, but in a smaller role or on a smaller scale. So what can a boss do when an employee falls short of that expectation time and time again?

Difficult employees can present in a variety of ways including:

  • Gossiping, complaining or arguing with other employees
  • Failing to complete the duties expected of them
  • Insubordination
  • General disrespect for others and their job

Perhaps in the past you’ve blown up at the employee… venting your frustration or suspending them. Maybe you choose just to ignore their behaviours in hopes that they go away, or maybe you’ve politely asked them to stop. No matter how you’ve approached this employee in the past, you’re on this website so it’s just NOT WORKING!

No matter how an employee PUSHES YOUR BUTTONS it’s important as a boss to deal with these difficult employees in a calm, confident and effective way.

Just think how much easier your job would be if you were communicating successfully and managing office politics. Learn to confront your employees and deliver negative evaluations without having the situation spiral into defensive behaviour, backstabbing or lack of motivation.

By clicking below you’ll have access to 201 pages of proven methods to coping with the difficult people in your life. Written by Dr. Mark Lauderdale, psychiatrist and personal success coach, “Secrets of Dealing With Difficult People” will refocus your efforts and your inner abilities in dealing with your difficult employees so you can spend less time praying for the results you want and more time seeing them!
