We’re All in This Together

I like to think that when I am part of a library organization, I am on their team, and I understand that the library’s success is a team effort, we’re all in this together, and we all have to work together toward common goals.

But, I’m human, so I may not always remember that.  Libraries, like other organizations,  occasionally may have employees who are. . . shall we say. . . “difficult.”  If you have such an employee who is a challenge to work with, even if it’s only sometimes, you may find the post How to Manage a Relentlessly Negative Employee helpful.  Some highlights:

  • Be clear.
  • Talk about consequences.
  • Be able to enforce consequences.

Do take the time to read the full post.  And may your negative employees be few!
