4. You’re meeting expectations – not exceeding them is my life dealing with employees.

I am a manager at a small, but very successful company. I have been with my company for 5 years, but many of my co-workers whom I manage have worked here longer. The company has grown and evolved so much in the past few years that it barely resembles the company it once was. Some of these co-workers get angry when people get promoted above them or to other, more *prestigious* departments and they feel skipped over. I’ve tried time and again to explain that the efforts they put in in their jobs and in the company 7 years ago isn’t the same as being proactive and taking initiative today.
