And it’s not easy finding a dynamic way to align and engage your entire workforce, especially when they each have different agendas and different perspectives, without constantly prodding your Slacker into line and up to speed.

But you love the challenge. That’s why you took the job. You’re a leader, right? So how do you deal with your Slackers?

In How to Align a Slacker I take you step-by-step through What Won’t Work:

  • Avoiding the problem
  • Blaming everyone else for the problem
  • Working around the problem
  • Passing-on the problem
  • Axing the problem

And just in case you aren’t concerned enough about the problem, I spell out the economic impact of Slackers on your bottom line. Then I offer a quick self-test to help you understand the way you deal with your Slackers. Finally I give you a positive, six-step plan for successful Slacker handling.

I do all this, because great leaders can develop the skills to turn Slackers into team players. Download How to Align a Slacker and learn how to get started.
