Performance management is one of the trickiest jobs a manager has. Many executives and team leaders are reluctant to tackle performance issues and to question A-Z excuses. Employee excuses can be funny, irritating, tiring or outrageous even if there is a legitimate reason. Accepting excuses is one of the worst things a manager can do. This breeds a cultural of irresponsibility and an environment where workers are always upping the excuse ante. Managers and business owners must lead by example.
