In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy

 

In this episode, I answer a listener’s question on working with people on tenure who no longer do a good job.

 

For the future of our country, we have to convince people there’s no free lunch.

  • Imagine if everyone had a checkmark beside their name so they couldn’t be fired—regardless of their performance.
  • Some people feel like they shouldn’t have to prove themselves year in and year out, but that’s what everyone else has to do.
  • While job security and comfort are nice, pressure is where we do our best.

 

Focus on becoming friends with these coworkers so you have a chance to have an impact on their life.

  • There are two things that make people change: what’s in it for them and proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Figure out what they want out of life by having conversations with them.
  • Once you know what they want, recommend resources that can help them see proof that getting where they want to be requires change.

 

Tune in to hear about a crazy conversation Andy had about tenure with someone in the airport.
