It’s frustrating to not have a team player among your employees. You understand that you will only succeed in doing all the tasks if everyone cooperates. You need to do something about the person who refuses to work with the group and improve the outcome.
Talk to that
understand the reason behind the refusal to cooperate. It’s possible that the
employee doesn’t see the point of what you’re doing in the company. You can
talk about the problem and find ways to deal with the issues together. You need
to have an open mind during the conversation and avoid expressing your
disappointment for the employees’ inability to be a team player.
Have an open forum
are personal issues among the employees preventing them from working
with another. It’s crucial to discuss these problems as a team. Make sure that
everyone remains open-minded during the conversation so that no one gets hurt
