Or you can decide to change

So, what do you do when an employee is being difficult and not pulling their weight? Well, usually, I would try to help them, coax them, mentor them, guide them and if that didn't work, maybe re-arrange what they are doing to increase the odds of them succeeding.

There is another option. That person could decide to do their job. Sometimes, that's how simple it is. For whatever reason, the person decides to work with others, to step up, to be a pleasure to work with instead of an anchor that has to be dragged around.

It can be easy and simple when the person just makes his or her own decision to change. Changing a person can be next to impossible.
