This is why management everywhere sucks. You are avoiding helping a hypothetically superior worker overcome and issue with "laziness" (aka your inability to make them want to work) due to your own damned laziness.
Of course, I suppose you could just find self motivated, high level thinkers. They do exist.
We are not dealing with 18 year old athletes. We are dealing with healthcare professionals. Job of management includes motivating employees of course. But by the time you finish rx school and licensed we expect a level of professionalism and a strong work ethic.at that level its not my job to micromanage and instill work ethics to lazy asses. Its not because Im too lazy to train them. Its because I know once you're a lazy ass you will always be a lazy ass. Of course there are exceptions.
Kind of like a seagull; I used to swoop in, make a lot of noise and **** everywhere, then leave. They were usually pretty excited to see me go. Now I only leave to walk back to my office. I'm always sure to stop by and say hi to all of the pretty nurses and flash my new employee badge at them. Usually makes for fun small talk in the elevators.
