When Your Employee Isn’t A Fit

when an employee isn't a fitAs a Minnesota resident, I often find myself dreaming of warm climates this time of year. 

The temperature hovers around freezing and I can picture the arid deserts of Arizona or the lush rainforests of Hawaii. Both climates offer respite from the Minnesota winter, but they are decidedly different from one another in flora and fauna.

While this position didn’t require that I paddle, my enthusiasm had me do so anyway as I wanted to participate in our progress.
