Creating good employees. Part 2 

What do employees want? 

So many employers seem to think that their employees or staff are lazy or do not want to work.  

This is a complete misconception and one that needs to be addressed. When you as the boss believe that your staff is lazy or does not want to work, it is your fault.    

There was a reason the person you or your HR hired is with you right now. You saw potential in them and now they are your responsibility.  

The employee. 

It has been driven into us since childhood that your parents went off to work and earn a wage. That job puts the food on the table and pays for the house, the car and the gadgets we play with.  

Why would someone go to work and do a bad job? 

Why would someone make mistakes on purpose?  

Why would someone call in sick when they are not sick? 

You are the answers to all the why’s. You did not hire a person because they were a bad worker, but your system may have created a bad employee. 

How can this be you ask? 

Easy… The main problem is you. This may be hard to swallow, but if you are not giving proper, clear instructions to your employee, your staff will be lost.  

They will be confused and not be able to figure out the job/task at hand. A bad employee will have a bad boss. Argue this until the cows come home but it’s the truth.  

A good boss/leader will give clear and concise information, they will guide the team or individuals to create something great.  

Give me a presentation on ________ so we can impress the client.   

That is not a clear mission you are sending your staff on. An army sergeant will not send his/her soldiers out to battle without a plan. A detailed plan of the mission.  

What is the mission? 

Ah, this is what the very busy boss, with meetings all day, fails to see. The mission needs to be outlined clearly so that your staff knows the details and what the end goal is.  

Armed with the knowledge of the mission, the staff can break out of the meeting inspired and ready to follow the instructions given. If the instructions are clear and the staff you have handpicked are qualified, you are well on your way to a good presentation.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
