Younger team members may not have the maturity level to fully embrace a growth mindset. They may be inhibited by fear of failure or feeling like an imposter. If your team is stagnant and easily side tracked, look for the root of the problem, their beliefs...

Have you hired team members who look great on paper? You’re not alone. We’ve all been there. You think you’ve hired a super star and it turns out they are more of a one hit wonder. They seem disengaged. They miss deadlines. And, you hesitate to leave the office for fear nothing would get done!

Dealing with underperformers can be emotionally draining!  But, if you don’t deal with it, it can become a disease that infects your entire team.  No matter that your business is, all of us have had to deal with an underperformer at one time or another.
