"So really, the player needs to be committed to the team.
Most teams and successful organizations have rules and guidelines to follow, but when it comes time for a new contract, these types of players can be disruptive to the team.
By sitting down with the employee and setting realistic goals and changes that you'd like to see made, it gives them the opportunity to go out and actually try.
You need them to be accountable for their actions at all times."2.
It depends on whom you ask, and what type of manager you are.
Some leaders will learn to deal with the prima donna because of their productivity, and others are all about building a culture of trust and an environment where everyone works together, so eliminating that person from your organization becomes the best option.
By allowing this person room to think, not only about the business but about themselves without guidance, can help them to realize they are troublesome.
There are some very simple ways to do this, whether it's giving the prima donna assignments that require them to spend considerable time out of the office or away from other team members.
