Do Your Employees Have Stinkin’ Thinkin’?
Ever met folks who find something wrong with the sun shining? Or known someone who would pull a butterfly’s wing off just because they can?
There are just some people that – as my father would say- are simply put on Earth to show the rest of us how NOT to act.
If you have someone with “stinkin’ thinkin’” on your staff and if you don’t address the behavior, your employee turnover and employee productivity will suffer.
What does Stinkin’ Thinkin’ sound like?
- I hate this place!
- Is it Friday yet? (said on Monday)
- Everyone is stupid.
- My manager is stupid.
- This job sucks!
- Nobody here cares about me.
- “THEY” just don’t get it!
- I am working here only for the paycheck.
- I called in sick last week. I was sick of working!
- I have my resume out all over town.
- I just don’t “get it”!
- I haven’t had a raise in 2 years!
