I’ll just say it: I’m sick of the whiners. I’m sick of people who hit a bump in the road and completely shut down.
I get it sometimes being in business is hard. But, as Entrepreneurs, we get paid to find and execute SOLUTIONS, not to sit in the corner and complain about how hard or unfair things are.
But this isn’t just about you this is also about the people you surround yourself with. If you surround yourself with successful people—successful entrepreneurs, business leaders, innovators, marketers, doers you’ll be more likely to be successful.
If you surround yourself with the opposite – with people who aren’t solution-oriented. That spend their days whining and complaining they’re only going to pull you down.
The Importance of a Solution-Oriented Team
This is especially true when those people are your team—the employees you’ve brought on board, trained and supported.
If they aren’t strategic and solution-oriented. If they’re whiners and complainers who expect everything to be done for them then your business really can’t thrive, at least not to its fullest potential.While that sounds pretty straightforward, in my experience hiring the right people are not always as simple as it seems.
It’s easy to say you don’t hire couples or significant others of employees or friends and family—that’s black and white. But it’s hard to make a rule about not-so-solution-oriented people sometimes, they disguise themselves as motivated and committed workers.
Then BAM! The truth hits you and your company like a ton of bricks.
So … How Do You Spot Them?
All of that said, my warnings are simple: if someone complains and whines in their interview or during any part of the hiring process, chances are that’s not going to get any better.
In fact, it’s probably going to get worse. Even if the person looks perfect on paper, don’t assume these interactions are some sort of a fluke. They probably aren’t.
The best, most experiences and most creative people can have the energy and enthusiasm beaten out of them after spending a few years in the corporate world. Maybe their intuitiveness and excitement weren’t appreciated by their previous companies.
Now, when something goes wrong, they’re comfortable just complaining instead of rolling up their sleeves and digging in. And it’s not your job to try and right that course.
It’s your job to run a successful company and that’s NOT made up of high-potential complainers.
It’s made up of people who get the job done. Period.
Ideally, during the interview process you’ll have an opportunity to give candidates a personality test or a lengthly test to see how they deal with problems. That would be ideal!
If you can’t swing it, don’t be afraid to do multiple interviews. Someone may seem great at first glance, but when they’re more comfortable may show their true colors.
Throughout every hiring exercise, remind yourself this: you want, need and DESERVE go-getters. These people stumble on problems and work to fix them immediately.
To them, every challenge is an opportunity and when they do present the next issue to you it’s always paired with a solution, a suggestion or some course of action.
Toxic employees can and will bring ya down so just STOP.
Stop hiring them… Stop making excuses for them…. Stop indulging them… Just STOP!
And if and when one creeps into your organization, weed them out ASAP and don’t feel bad about it.
If they deserved the job, they didn’t and they WON’T. So, simply, move on. And never look back.
