Most of us have likely felt the effects of a problem employee. We may see the impact from a management position, or feel the impact as a member of a team where someone is not pulling their weight. While these types of occurrences are unfortunate, they do happen. As a leader, you hope to assist employees in development rather than have them drag the rest of your team down. Of course there are steps you can take to handle a problem employee, but sometimes, this process can seem overwhelming.
