I want to tell you a story about someone named John. John has an impressive résumé. He graduated from Michigan in 2011 and finished business school at Wharton in 2013. Since then, he’s worked in two different divisions of a Fortune 500 company and enjoyed a modicum of success.
Everyone agrees: the guy is super smart, experienced, business-savvy and brings loads of energy and enthusiasm to the table.
But somehow, John is just not living up to his potential.
In fact, if John doesn’t get his act together and start producing better results, you may have to think about letting him go. The problems are increasing and you are getting really frustrated.
