I'm not sure how to ask or phrase this but for those of you who have had employees for some time, how do you determine what battles to pick with your guys and what to "just let go?" I'm not talking about a guy you're ready to fire but rather the little stuff that even good guys do that drives you crazy every now and again. I guess, after all, if we wanted to only hire ourselves we'd never have employees in the first place. I think I go in phases, sometimes the little stuff gets to me and sometimes I just don't worry about it so I don't have an aneurysm at age 50. I have weekly meetings with my guys and constantly discuss items and share my feedback with them but sometimes habits are hard to break. I have to tell myself stuff like the below to justify not bringing my hammer down harder: - We'll at least they consistently show up on time or at the least no more than 10 mins late - They are working in 24 degree weather (today actually) with a high of 40 degrees all day. (Asking myself) "Self, would you rather be out there or have employees doing it?" - They are for the most part pretty honest - Would you rather deal with some headache and have employees or not have employees and go solo again. -etc etc I'm primarily trying to figure out if the above and the like are "normal" employee things or if they are not. No one in my family ever had a business or employees so I only have other business owners to talk to. What are some of your pet peeves or preferences that you had to just let go?
