When a team member isn’t performing their role (for whatever reason) the impacts flow through to everyone on the team, their own ability to contribute and their engagement. In addition to looking at the leader approach to managing individuals who are not performing to expectations, it’s important to look at  the bigger picture for the team, customers and workplace culture.  In this story we see the issue of unmanaged performance issues from the perspective of other team members.
