One More Reason To Address An Employee’s Negative Behavior

Say you are a manager/leader in your organization.  Say you have an employee or two that act out somewhere in the organization.  You figure, the problem will take care of itself either through the person leaving, lower management addressing it, or their co-workers addressing it.  You are a leader after all, in mid or even upper management and have more important things to do.

Here is why it is actually your problem.  An employees negative behavior impacts more than just those directly working with him/her.  An employee’s negative behavior negatively impacts the organization’s ethical standards, and unproductive behavior violates fiduciary duty, two primary components of the bottom line.  And, if you are a leader, optimizing the bottom line is your job. Make sure the line of management is addressing it where need be.
