You might be aware of a saying that “bend a stick but don’t break it”. The meaning of this is that if the stick is not correct just bend it and use but if you break it, you won’t be able to use it. The same applies to the employees too. If any of the employees is not working properly make him / her to understand the mistakes and help to work better rather than harassing or firing him / her.
It is quite obvious that all your employees will not be of the same caliber. Some will be brilliant while others are not. You need to understand their potential and assign tasks accordingly. That is where your management skills are put to test. These are very crucial lessons in men management. If you know that a person is not good in maintaining accounts and is brilliant in computer programming, why would you want him to do accounting?
There may be instances in your workforce that a particular employee is erring again and again. You don’t have to fire him / her and instead can make them realize that they are not doing great work and motivate them to do better. Understand their problem and solve it rather than simply blaming them. This is very important as it might play on the confidence of the employee too. Don’t make them loose their confidence level and instead help them boost it. There are various ways in which you can help them regain their confidence level and help to perform better. This is very crucial for the success of your business too. The concept is simple. Make them work on which they’re brilliant rather than putting them on the kind of work you want them to do. This is how you can make use of a person who is unproductive.
