I recently shared HERE the silver lining in the black cloud of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here’s WHY (Especially right now with so many great ‘Very Best People’ unemployed through no fault of their own!) you should never ‘settle’ for a marginal worker (MW):
|‘Marginal Worker’||‘Very Best Person’|
|‘Life Issues’||Constant family/ financial/ legal drama… that they bring to work!||Enjoys a stable, fulfilling, ‘no-drama’ personal and family life.|
|Reliability||Often late with frequent last minute absences.||Rock-solid, arrives early/ stays late when needed… cheerfully!|
|Initiative/Creativity:||Barely does what’s asked… grudgingly.||Takes pride in their work/ shares ideas on improving procedures.|
|Customers:||Clients tolerate them… usually.||Loved by everyone so they routinely create Cheerleaders!|
|Emotional stability:||An insecure person that doesn’t take counsel well. Plus requires constant praise and rewards.||Appreciates recognition but is largely self motivated. Sets self-goals for themselves.|
|What about you?||SUCKS THE JOY out of your daily life!||A delight to be around and work with. In fact, VBP’s inspire (and challenge) you to greater heights!|
Need I say more? So PLEASE, if your COVID-19 slowdown didn’t get these folks out our your life then gently and respectfully move them out of your business (and life) NOW!
Of course, even as they look for a new job (career?) VBP will only want to work for a ‘Very Best Company’! This means you must entice these Very Best People with an above average ‘CAREER OPPORTUNITY’! Let’s work on this one soon.
