If there’s one thing that stands out in the ongoing presidential election, it’s the sheer nastiness. As a leader, I wouldn’t hire any of the present candidates for my business. I wouldn’t want to work for any of them either. My rejection comes down to one of the flashing neon features of this election: disrespect.
When seemingly indispensable employees become disrespectful, you must confront them. This is never easy, but is essential if you are going to be an effective leader.
