Motivate recent slackers by highlighting their past — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If once-productive employees slack off, express your surprise. Explain the positive ways that you perceive them—and why. You might say, “I see you as incredibly driven, based on your willingness to take on new assignments, your dedication to work until the job’s done and the high standards you set for yourself.” Then contrast your perception with their recent behavior. Conclude with a motivational challenge such as, “I’d hate to change my perception of you after all this time.”
