Working from home forces changes to the work environment

Back in March of 2020, no one knew if they would be in the office or at home. COVID was running rampant with no vaccine in sight. Employers needed to adapt. The biggest change to the workplace was a mass transition to remote work.

Employee feedback is hard

As a manager, one of the most common, anxiety causing moments is when we need to provide “ employee feedback” for improvement.  No one wants to tell a colleague they are doing something wrong.

Is your company training program instilling the right attitude?

Is your company training setting the right work ethic?

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:

  1. Training recent graduates
  2. Manager new to management who is training new hires
  3. Training programs that have not been updated

Do you have new employees who leave as soon as the clock ticks 5:00 PM?

Can you coach a bad attitude?

The bad attitude is tough to coach

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.
