The top 10 reasons employees don't do what they're supposed to do are: they don't know why they should do it; they don't know how to do it; they don't know what they are supposed to do; they think your way will not work; they think their way is better; they think something else is more important; they think they are doing it; they are punished for doing it; they are rewarded for not doing it; it's beyond their personal limits; and, no one could do it.This book tells you how to avoid or handle each situation and the 6 other reasons that comprise the total list of reasons employees don't do their jobs.
