049 - How to Transition a Decorated, but Toothless Employee

June 30, 2016
This is a question from Landon, who lives in Ashland, VA.

Landon, what do you mean by “transition”? Is it about firing that person, or moving him sideways or to another organization? Would he accept a lower position and lower pay or that would just make him more bitter?

Why is he no longer contributing? Is it lack of skill, energy, or poor attitude? If skill, is he coachable? Can he learn new skills?

If it is the energy, is it a temporary situation or an old-dog-new-tricks problem?

How about the attitude problem? Is he toxic, or just down and out?

In today’s episode, we discuss the three risks of firing such an employee and how to mitigate them.  We also analyze how to handle a toxic employee.

Tune into the show and let me know what you think.
