How to manage a difficult person in the workplace (or in life)

Of all the questions I get asked about managing people, this one would have to be at the top of the list.  “How do I manage person x? They are just so difficult.”  It’s one of the aspects that I spend a lot of time on with my coaching clients.Difficult people suck life and energy out of the working (or other) relationship. They can make the workplace a tense or unpleasant place to be. They can take up a disproportionate amount of time and energy to deal with; often with less than optimal…See More

High impact employees (no, not those ones)

You have all heard of high potential employees but have you heard of “high impact” employees?  Now, I bet your mind has gone straight to the high performers, the ones that are closing the deals, making the savings, making the noise. And you’d be right — they are most definitely high impact employees, and rightly so.But, there’s another group of employees that have impact — but unfortunately, impact of the negative kind.These are the toxic employees that take up a disproportionate amount of…See More

How do you lead through change when your team isn't with you on the journey?

I was speaking at an event a few weeks ago on leading through change. It’s a great topic — a timely and timeless one; as change will not go away and leading well through the change it is the only way to affect proper change. I went through the practical steps that a leader can take to affect change — what we know works and what we know almost guarantees failure.In going through this, there’s one thing that is glaringly obvious — and that is a leader cannot affect change, without having the…See More

Communicating in the workplace - the right way and the wrong way

It's a tricky thing this communicating thing.  As humans, we are wired to avoid conflict. And given that most of us are decent human beings, add to that a sense of not wanting to upset the other person. So, when faced with a difficult message, our inclination is often to : avoid it, project it onto someone or something else, hope it will get better, bundle it up with a heap of other things, or any other form of indirect communication.The thing is though, none of these approaches usually work.…See More

"Excellent commentary Bernard. Somehow having these conversations remain something that is at the top of the tricky things to do as a manager or leader. Thanks for adding to the conversation."

Bernard Keith Althofer commented on Tammy Tansley's blog post What do I do with a demotivated employee?
"Over the years, I have found a number of managers and workers who have appeared to be 'demotivated'. Simple conversations have generally found the reasons why. In a number of cases, the conversation has identified a lack of communication…"

Why your eulogy is more important than your resume

Often my work as a coach helps people with specific parts of their resume or career trajectory. We talk about what they can do to hone a particular attribute or craft a specific path to get where they want to, in order to meet their longer term goals..But, it's often taking a rather different approach which has a much more profound impact on someone's leadership style or legacy.In fact, the last chapter of my book is titled Your…See More
