Jumping Juhi does not want to work with Donkeys (Her Team)

Jumping Juhi has a team of ten employees based all over India, and rather than encouraging team bonding, she always wants them to compete among themselves. A healthy competition is always good, but this is turning out to be a sad affair with the department productivity going down.

When Jagan - assistant to Juhi discussed this with her, he got the reply that competition is good. Jagan understands that competition is good but not of the level where department synergy and productivity is lost.

To improve the productivity, Jumping Juhi has implemented following measures
- Daily concall at 9.00 am in the morning
- Daily concall at 6.00 pm in the evening
- Daily reporting at 2.00 pm in the evening

If team only keeps on reporting, when would they work? HR work is not like BPO, its not just numbers and data. There is lot of qualitative measures involved in HR, which is not being taken into consideration by my jumping Juhi.

Also in every call the language being used by Jumping Juhi is threatening and now a days abusive as well. How can a leader speaks of firing her complete team in each and every call. When she says that she would prefer hiring from outside than working with donkeys, team not only gets demotivated but also negative attitude creeps in.

When you get threatened on every con call daily, then the whole intent of threatening is lost. I doubt if this team can make successful HR department together..

Jumping Juhi is an imaginary character. All her similarities to people around us is coincidental. Jumping Juhi is a light hearted series to portray work related scenarios in a fiction mode. The intention is not to malign anyone's image or to make fun of anybody.
