First, I asked myself a few questions before I drafted my reply carefully choosing words and with the most sensitive precision.
That’s because a wrong word means the staff in question would be packing her bags within 48 hours.
I ask myself. "Had I been too honest (to the Management)? Had I been feeding the Managment too much information? Had I been an ineffective Boss to an indifferent person? Had I been to lenient to her that leads to her doom? Had I …….?" Questions flooded my mind.
Or I shouldn’t even blame myself? (Then whose to blame?)
On my hand, I have 2 hardworking staff and 2 staff that are "regarded" as "laggards" which 1 of them, a male, had shown tremendous, if not drastic improvement recently. Had the recent fast-paced working style somehow belittled or micronized the work contribution by this female staff? A senior staff suggested that this female staff had comply almost everything within her parameters and job responsibility. While the rest had been "over-contributing", she is just meeting the minimum standards.
Now that actually pulls her apart (and afar) from where the division is actually moving and heading. The eagles (Bosses) spot her on and she got a new work station within an invisble satellitle.
Are we are too fast for her? Maybe. Isn’t the way to survive this bubble-gum economy is nothing but being fast?
I convince myself many times that her maternity leave blues is playing up on her. But she’s already been back since late Jan 09.
I know she needs time. (But how long?) And after several attempts to get her into action seems futile and it gets meaningless with every session.
I got an impression that everyone is already way ahead at 180km/h while she cruises at 90km/h, at legal limit and you can’t really fault her. How to when she is abidding the law? I don’t go around teaching my staff to be lawless, but sometimes it’s about working hard & smart.
Maybe the whole team (including me) should get a "speeding (working) ticket" and get heavily FINED should our hastened performance costs her, her job.
Or maybe she should stop hogging and speed up a little say cruising at 100km/h, at least the Traffic Police will not fault her given the "legal accepted allowance".
That at least, will put her out of the satellite and she may be given more time to rediscover her true potential as a media sales person.
I had experiences prior to "axeing" people. But how can I be a good Boss if I do not do whatever I can before I pulls out the AXE?
Good Boss, Bad Boss are still Boss.
Let’s see, AXE or HAMMER?
