He's rude. She's an egomaniac. They are a bunch of slackers. He goes AWOL whenever you need him most. She misses deadlines, he screws up assignments, they all chase away clients, and combined, they fracture your teams morale. Who are they? They are the –"unmanageable” employees and they are costing your company a fortune. Anne Loehr, author of MANAGING THE UNMANAGEABLE: How to Motivate Even the Most Unruly Employee, estimates that her executive clients lose, on average, 30% of their productivity because of issues related to unmanageable employees. But there's a difference between someone who is acting unmanageable or has become unmanageable in response to a particular set of circumstances, and someone who can't act any other way. The key here is to recognize the difference between the two. Fortunately, most people fall into the first category who are salvageable.
