You give an especially challenging assignment to someone on your staff. Then, everyone else grows envious and angry.

Here’s how to channel that negative envy into a positive force:
  • Outline the special skills or abilities your designee brings to the task. That shows your choice was not arbitrary and motivates others to tell you what they can do.
  • Invite other people to suggest how they can help the person you chose complete the job. That gives everyone a chance to access the limelight. They win by supporting the person you chose, not undermining him or her.
  • Point to the positive outcomes that will result if the chosen person excels.
