Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

Self-serving employees are those who are typically just in it for themselves.

They don't care who they have to step on or what they need to do to climb the corporate ladder.

There are a few ways to figure out who amongst your employees are self-serving:

They are always blaming other people. A self-serving person will always try to make other people look bad to make themselves look good.
They always take control of meetings. There's always one person who wants their voice to be heard, "My opinion is right, your opinion is wrong.”
They are too competitive. Competition is great, but if you’ll do anything to win, like lying or cheating, then it’s taking it too far.

If you have someone like this, no one will want to be a part of your team or organization.
