Replace the Weak Link

October 5th, 2017 · No Comments

What do you do with a person who isn’t doing their job, but seems to do other things?

Fire him. He admits he doesn’t know how to do all the things you want him to do. He admits that he just doesn’t learn fast and will take along time to do the things you want him to do. It is simple, fire him.

But he has been on the team for ten years … so…

There is some value in a person’s ability to make everyone else feel good. There is some detriment in a person causing other persons to work harder all the time. This isn’t easy, is it?

The weak link is weakest at some thing.

There are always other things.

Gee. The textbooks said this project management gig wasn’t that difficult.
