From experience, work with people who spite you and they drop the team performance ON PURPOSE

Then you fire them and hire employees who actually make money and put the fucking firm first. You're the worst little HR rep I've ever seen, it's pretty obvious you got picked on in high school.

This is what I would want to say ideally, but I have to be analytical and consider the various forces at play here lol

This is something to take into consideration. One of the colleagues most critical of him has noted that he has improved over the year. I think I need to high light more examples of this, but is an improvement grounds for promotion?

You have a good point but I don't know to what extent he would have autonomy as he is supposed to 'articulate departmental visions' and 'lead by example.'

Perhaps someone with his character may actually be ideal for this?

I'm off to bed but I'll be back in this thread tomorrow if its still here.

I basically want to spin it that he is too much of a top performer not to be moved ahead in the company, he could walk if he doesn't make the promotion.

promote him to director of a new sales team with no one on it
promote one of the betas to direct the existing sales team
give him a separate office and dedicated support staff
tell him he's expected to bring in as much business as the rest of the other team combined
he redoubles his efforts so he can stay on top
everyone else improves as well to try to catch up

You don't have to be in a direct leadership role to lead by example.

Oh I've seen that happen but I've also seen more people do it through sheer incompetence.

It would be nice if the world worked this way but top performers are heavily discriminated against.

You don't need to be a psychopath to see that this is a way for everyone to come out ahead.

If some autistic psycho wants to kill it by himself making sales, that's fine

But there's absolutely no point of him destroying a team he manages in the process, just because someone is an associate, VP, SVP, MD etc. doesn't mean they HAVE to own they're own team that they'll ultimately waste and destroy anyways which will lose the company money

should a guy who doesn't work well with others be put in charge of others
should a guy who makes a lot of money for the company as part of his job, be given a different job doing something he isn't good at

What do you think?
