Managing & Motivating the 7 Most Challenging Employee Types

Seven Challenging Employee Types

Tolerating these harmful behaviors is definitely not the best solution.

Some of your employees may require more “management” than others. Some might enjoy pushing the limits, while others seem totally clueless about the problems they cause.

From emotional drama queens to lazy slackers, all of these aggravating folks can be considered “challenging employees”—people who consume an inordinate amount of your time and energy, but are not really bad enough to fire. Even worse, an employee who is difficult may sometimes be one of your most knowledgeable or productive, leaving you in an awkward position.

Don’t let a challenging employee infect your entire work group—let workplace expert Marie McIntyre’s 10-step “coaching road map” show you how to handle all those personalities at work.
