Managing Marginal Performers: Fitting A Square Peg in a Round Hole

We can all identify with the image of a small child pounding away at a square block as he tries to force that block into a round hole on a game board atop his desk. This image, although initially humorous, strikes a chord with those of us who have been that square peg or who have managed an individual whose lack of job fit mimicked this image. Poor fit can be painful, particularly in those situations where the managed is ill-equipped to deal with the anomaly. What is the secret to managing the square peg/round hole phenomenon? Is there a way to identify the potential for mismatch early in the relationship? What’s more important – job fit, manager/employee fit, or company/culture fit? These questions and more will be answered in this session. Bring your challenges around “employee fit” to the table and let’s talk about them.
