PPP 281 | (Video) What To Do With Your Slackers and Jerks

I just wrapped up the first day of our 2-day Essentials of Project Management workshop at one of my favorite biotech clients. A topic that came up today is how to deal with team members that suffer from bad morale. Of course there are no easy answers, but in this brief video, I share a story and some research that was reported in Bob Sutton's Wall Street Journal article (subscription may be required to read) years ago.

Could it be that just one slacker or jerk could drop team performance by 30-40 percent?

Let Me Hear From You!

I'd love to hear from you! What advice do you have for dealing with withholders of effort and violators of interpersonal norms?

Let's connect on LinkedIn and discuss! I'd love to hear your thoughts! Also, what have you been learning lately? What are you reading? Please e-mail me (show [AT] PeopleAndProjectsPodcast [DOT] com) or leave a message on our Listener Feedback Line (847-550-3747). I look forward to hearing from you!
