Topic: Career Management - Don't Be the High Maintenance Employee

Most managers are familiar with the type: one employee who requires more managerial attention than all the rest combined.  He or she may be a high performer or a low performer, but a common characteristic is the amount of management time consumed.  Issues can be as variable as personalities: They may involve complaints, frustrations, conflicts with others, desires to do things their own way, problems with deadlines… but the common thread is the constant need for a manager’s involvement to keep things on track.

The High Maintenance High Performers are the highly talented employees who are challenging to manage but produce the biggest results and are worth it.  The High Maintenance Low Performers are the employees who spend more time figuring out how to game the system than they do working.  They need to be ferreted out of a company because they are dead weight dragging it down.  The High Maintenance High Performers But Just Not Worth It employees are really the biggest threat to a company.  They are the highly talented employees who produce results, but in the process exhaust everyone and can destroy morale and company culture.

Where do you fit in? What kind of employee/s do you currently manage? Do you need some assistance?
