The Choices You Have To Make with Bellow Average Work from Your Team

If you manage a few people then chances are that they will deliver below average work from time to time. When this happens, you are faced with one of the following options:
  • Accept the work as is...
  • Fix the work yourself...
  • Initiate a training exercise...
Anyone overseeing anyone else has to choose one of the above options every time below average work is delivered. The severity of the problem, or the importance of the task, is what will influence the choice that needs to be made. 
It's also possible that the employee is going through some tough times so be sure to clear the air prior to initiating anything. If he's going through a divorce, for example, it's very likely the cause of his problematic work.

While "Done is better than perfect" it's important to reach a point where the work provided is consistently acceptable for the project. If it isn't, and you find yourself needing to choose one of the above consistently and your attempts to work with your employee was fruitless then it may be time to part ways.
