Four P’s of Managing Employees

Dateline: December 26, 2014

Welcome to our Friday WRAP – one thought-provoking idea to think about over the weekend.

For the last post of 2014, we are returning to the topic of employee management.  This week’s idea comes from Author, entrepreneur and motivational speaker James Bird Guess.  In a recent post on his blog titled, Four Types of Employees Every Leader Must Know, he suggests that everyone team is made up of 4 types of individuals, each with different motivations.  The four types are:

The Passionate Employee –Motto: “I love what I do” –Percentage of staff: 20 percent

The Professional Employee –Motto: “I’m here to work not make friends” –Percentage of staff: 10 percent

The Paycheck Employee –Motto: “It’s just a job” –Percentage of staff: 50 percent

The Problem Employee –Motto: “They don’t care and neither do I”-Percentage of staff: 20 percent

Which type of employee are you?  How does your leadership style differ for each of these types?

That’s a WRAP on 2014!  Have a wonderful weekend!  Back again in 2015!
