Avoid Enabling (2/24)

List item

No Title

No Description


Lazy people are successful because they are either very strong verbally and can talk their way out of anything, or ride on the efforts of others who avoid conflict. Lazy people either need to be caught and forced to change, or removed. Make it easy to expose them. Do NOT enable them by covering for their responsibilities. Refuse to do their work based on the priorities assigned to you by your manager. You cannot compromise your own responsibilities. If assigned work that requires collaboration with the lazy individual, make your expectations clear for their contribution with a deadline. If they don’t help, submit your work without giving any credit to the other person. Verbally tell your manager why only your name appears on the work.
