Book Site: Shifting the Monkey
Poor employees get a disproportionate amount of attention. Why? Because they complain the loudest, create the greatest disruptions, and rely on others to assume the responsibilities that they shirk. So says the author, Todd Whitaker.
In "Shifting the Monkey," Whitaker suggests it is the responsibility of leaders and managers to protect their best employees by putting the monkeys right back where they belong - on the backs of those people who were supposed to do the task, solve the problem, or manage the project in the first place.
Whitaker explains how to spot the top nine monkey techniques used to shift responsibilities and gives advice for how to focus on your good employees first, and help shift these “monkeys” back to the underperformers.
