Performance Improvement

We frequently hear from business leaders who are frustrated with the lack of performance of key employees or managers. In some cases, this is due to a lack of engagement or motivation. In other cases, leaders report that although their firm has hired smart and motivated people, they aren’t living up to their full potential. The results are inconsistent. 

Both of these groups of leaders have the same thing in common: their company does not have a comprehensive process for Performance Improvement. 

Rock-star individual contributors get promoted into management but struggle without formal training on how to manage others effectively. Poor performers are given up on and placed on a half-hearted “Performance Improvement Plan,” which is really code for “go find another job.” Eventually, they are fired. 

It doesn’t have to be this way. Systematic and research-based Performance Improvement processes that provide your employees with the tools and feedback they need to do a better job.
