Dealing with Irresponsible People
In the workplace, we get to work with a variety of people. We all have different traits and personalities. We have all been there where we have had to work with someone who’s lack of planning and irresponsibility causes frustration, chaos, and extra work for us. These are the people who don’t pull their weight in team projects, are consistently late for meetings. They are unprepared, miss deadlines and thrive on disorganized chaos.
I was told a quote that resonated with me. “ Lack of planning on your part doesn’t constitute an emergency on my part.”

Irresponsibility in the workplace causes:
  • Loss of productivity
  • Loss of revenue
  • Stress for co-workers
  • Damages work morale

What management can do:
  • Act immediately to correct irresponsible behavior
  • Do not condone employees because you like them as a person.
  • Lead by example.
  • Remind employees of policies and procedures
  • Follow up regularly.

As a leader, it is your job to motivate underperformers, collaborate with annoying coworkers and overcome difficult employees. Communication is key. It is important to build relationships with your staff, there is usually a reason why an employee is underperforming, once you know what it is you can work toward solutions. You won’t know until you ask.

We all want to work in an environment that motivates us to be our best selves. Getting and keeping the right team is focusing on the people, their work habits, their talents, and values.
