[FLR] This is why your employees cut corners (and what to do about it)

Happy Friday,


I was having a conversation with my son this summer about some work and life principles. He was sharing his frustrations about getting things done and about the challenges he is facing. What I realized is that most of the challenges related to work are often not personal. Peers and leaders often just do what is convenient for them at the time.


It’s the 80/20 rule.


80% of people will do what’s easiest and most convenient for them, while 20% of people will go the extra mile.


As a leader, you have to learn how to work with lead both types.
