Marissa Meyer (Yahoo) has told telecommuters that they now have to work from an office. That is a blanket order that demonstrate a significant lack of leadership.
Looking at this in black and white I'd say that under performers, out of alignment employees (call them what you want) should get a meeting with their manager and be told that it's office work or ship out. Maybe throw in a 1 month grace period if you feel kind. Those that perform should be left alone.
A leader should not apply the same rule to everyone; be extra kind to good people and ruthless with underperformers.What do you think? As always questions and comments are welcome.
