“I want to be considerate. I don’t want to upset people.”
“I’m worried what I have to do will hurt team morale.”
“I don’t want to be seen as one of those ‘awful’ bosses; I am a good and fair person, and I want my team to like me.”
“How will I manage if I make the wrong decision….?”
These are a few of the most common worries leaders and business owners have when making a difficult staffing decision, like hiring, firing, or conflict management. What’s more, when you consider that leaders say ‘people problems’ make up 76% of their business’ challenges, there’s a lot of opportunity for leaders to feel conflicted, worried, and unsure. And, what’s worse, they feel completely alone.
