Dealing With Poor Performance

What makes an employee a poor performer?

They must not care or don’t have what it takes to get the job done!

This may be the case but most of the time there is far more to it.

People managers will deal with this situation many times in their career.

“Do I invest in this person to get them where they need to be or do I cut bait now and move on?”

Re-hiring is costly and underestimated by many companies.

Most companies don’t put a cost associated to the interview process, lost productivity, culture impact and increased workloads.

This is not a reason not to re-hire.

It just needs to be in the mix when decisions are being made.

Fireside Chats – Formal 1:1’s

A misunderstood performance management tool is formal one to ones or what I call Fireside Chats.
Whenever I ask clients if they have formal one to ones with their manager at work the most common answer is “no”.
In most cases their formal one to one’s in their mind is mid and full year performance reviews.
These are not formal Fireside Chats!
A Fireside Chat is a scheduled monthly meeting between an employee and their manager.
The meeting has consistent structure, timing, format and purpose.
Fireside Chats are by far the most effective performance management tool that I have ever used.

The bar could be a target, a goal or an accomplishment.

I am talking about raising the bar on execution.

Let me explain myself.

I have written in the past about coaching and people development and the impact that it has on your life and your career.

Great coaches have systems and processes.

More commonly known as “standards”.

These standards set “the bar”.

They are the specific details around “how” you are supposed to do something.

“How can I improve if I am not sure how I am supposed to do it in the first place?”

In the sporting world having standards in place are a given for successful coaches.

However, this can be a fundamental flaw in any business model.
