What About the Middle?
Every manager knows how to handle their top performers, giving them recognition, accolades, raises and eventually promotions. Every manager knows how to handle their bottom performers, giving them extra training, development and coaching. Ultimately, the bottom performers either improve and step up or move on to a new job to be more successful in their careers.
There are only so many hours in the day and so many days in the week. Good managers spend time and effort recognizing those pulling them along and developing those pulling them back. Managers spend more than 80% of their time focusing on these two groups comprising of only 20% of the employees. It is time to see things from the perspective of 80% of your employees currently in the middle. The Middlist Paradigm gives you a unique insight into this 80% that receives the least of your time but brings in the most significant value.
