Dealing with Staff Pushback

Nothing is quite so tiresome as carrying other people’s backpacks, especially when they can carry them.

It’s worse when it’s your staff and you face resistance at work.

Whether it’s a new initiative, coming back to the office after vacation, a pandemic, or different responsibilities, your staff may lack enthusiasm for the direction you’re heading.
