Even your good employees will disappoint you during their tenure with your small business according to business coaches Jack Mencini and Adam Sonnhalter of Maximum Value Partners and hosts of the national podcast radio show, Dirty Secrets of Small Business.
In this week’s segment, Jack and Adam talk about the human nature of employees on your team and how disappointment is a fact of doing business. Even if the employee has been with you for a very long time, there comes a point with some individuals that they haven’t kept pace with the demands of the position or they see their involvement being there just for a paycheck.
Small business owners are totally invested in their organization and most want their team to have close to the same degree of interest to make the business an ongoing success. When it comes to a point that an employee just sees it as a job and is no long engaged in moving the needle forward to make the business more sustainable or more profitable, it’s time to wrestle with the disappointment and make the decision to let them go.
If you have dealt with a long time employee who is not performing like he or she did before, call Jack and Adam to discuss how letting that person go is a hard decision and the right decision for your business.
