Kick out the troublemakers and things will quiet down; you need a break from bickering and griping! Proverbs 22:10 (TM)
I have worked with a a lot of teams at a lot of companies. I have seen my share of troublemakers who bring down the entire team with their bickering, griping and bad attitude. I have also seen the transformation that occurs when troublemakers are removed from the equation. Not only do things quiet down, but there is a breath of fresh air across the team.
I understand that well-meaning managers want to give the person a chance, but their trouble-making ways are a good indication that they’re not in the right place. They aren’t happy, the team isn’t happy, the manager’s not happy. It’s best for everyone to unleash them to find something they enjoy.
