What do you do about “malicious compliance” from one or more of your subordinates?
First you have to understand what malicious compliance is. That is when one or more of your team is withholding the 100% effort needed to get the job done. They will do just what you tell them to do, sort of, but they won’t give you any more than that. There will be no new ideas. There will be no extra hours worked when you need them most. There will be the silence and the sullen looks, and conversations stop when you walk by.
