An employee with a bad attitude is not only her colleagues’ problem. Such an employee can bring down morale, spread bad behaviour and cause chaos. Her bad attitude is therefore management’s problem.
Many establishments are guilty of not cautioning a worker who has been acting in an unprofessional manner as long as he is good or it doesn’t directly affect the business or sales. They enable bullying, emotional abuse, etc.
A candidate may have smashed the interview process showing that they are the ideal employee, leaving you to think you’ve won the golden ticket. Yet, when they start working you begin to notice their bad habits and worry that they are toxic to the organisation.
If the troublesome behaviour persists after a period of intense training, coaching and guiding, further action will be required. Firing an employee can be a really difficult task, needing careful documentation to avoid a lawsuit.
However, it is very important to determine whether the dynamics is at play can inhibit another colleague from doing their job and decide whether to fire him/ her no matter how good you think she is.
People with a great attitude concern themselves with getting results. Most people with bad attitude cannot rise above the noise and negative chatter.
Negative attitude will have your organization focusing on bad behaviour and make many leaders settling needless dispute.
When you fire an employee known for causing trouble, it sends a strong message to your team. This ultimately leads to better and focused orientation, better business results and overall employee satisfaction.
Because your team spend a large amount of time at work, you can’t afford a grumpy fella. A great attitude can be a determining factor in whether a person is going to exceed their goals – and many times they do, because they have the support of those around them.
Finally, people with great attitude are more successful at driving and leading winning teams. Part of the reason is their focus on the “we” over the “me”.
Whether it is through accountability, shared commitments or lack of emphasis placed on their own goals, they are able to get others to work together to accomplish something great. They don’t obsess over titles, visibility or favour and promote interoffice politics.
