I have an incompetent manager
Your manager sucks. We have all worked for them. Maybe someone in positional power is an ass and could benefit from feedback for improvement. You may feel your incompetent manager shouldn’t have their role. We have all thought it at one point in our career and this is OK.
A 9-5 work ethic and nothing more?
I would suggest that a number of company training programs are not pushing new hires fast enough. I especially believe this is the case in a few areas:
- Training recent graduates
- Manager new to management who is training new hires
- Training programs that have not been updated
Do you have new employees who leave as soon as the clock ticks 5:00 PM?
Is a bad attitude coachable?
As managers, I am confident we can train employees to learn our products, our software and to a certain extent our culture. Coaching an employee attitude is a different animal. How we think about life, our careers, our managers and our companies success is usually a reflection of our personal outlook on life.
