If you are not getting the results you’re looking for from your employees, before you jump to any conclusions, the first thing you need to consider is the first T, which stands for Training. If your employees aren’t meeting your performance standards, then the solution may be as simple as providing them with the proper training. If training doesn’t work, then you need to move on to the second T: Transfer. You may very well have a great employee, but you may also have them in the wrong position in your company. If training doesn’t work, and there is no other position you can transfer them to, the next step is for you to either Tolerate, or Terminate. If you decide to tolerate, the best advice I can give you is to get out a calendar, and set a deadline with the employee. Otherwise, you and your business may end up paying an extraordinary price, and when the day comes that you finally do let that employee go, you’ll be telling yourself you should have made the decision a long, long time ago.
