Fair, Not Equal

Think about it


I see it a lot actually.

GMs and PDs who want to treat each member of their staff equally. They take pride in doing so.

But that’s not really what we should strive for in our stations.

We should try to be fair with each member of our staff.

Not treat each as interchangeable pegs to fit into interchangeable holes.

Fair, not equal, because talent isn’t equal.

Your most talented team member should not be treated exactly the same as your least talented, most easily replaceable team member.

Sorry, but that’s the truth.

And the more talented you are, the more you know it.
