What Do You Do With A High-Performer Who Doesn’t Fit?

Your Number 2, your go-to guy, your second in command… Whatever you call him/her, he’s the guy/gal you know is going to deliver when the going gets tough. But what if he is pissing everyone else off around him? What if he’s the cause of many other people not performing as well as they could?

Would you rather have a team with one superstar and a number of other average performers, or a team full of above-average performers?

I can’t answer that question for you, but that’s what went through my mind as I was talking with a senior executive when he told me about his second-in-command. It seems his Number 2 was a real animal when it came to working with other people, and his management style was very different from what the boss wanted.

What do you do? I see three options:

  1. Replace him with someone that fits your company’s culture and your style – someone who can work well with others.
  2. Live with him, knowing that he’s getting things done and his collateral damage is the price you and your employees pay for that.
  3. Try to change him, molding him, asking him to work with people the way you’d like.

What would you do?
