Why You Need to Be Brutally Honest With Poor Performers

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

Excellent tips...remember, action speaks louder than words.

 

Do you spend the majority of your time with those who are not meeting expectations?  Do you continuously let them slide, because you don't have the time or energy to deal with a situation?

 

Would love to hear your opinion on this topic.

Allowing poor performers to remain on the payroll is a form of dishonesty that harms the entire organization

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, January 20, 2:47 AM

 

[KEY POINTS}

 

#1: Poor performers learn not to trust you

 

#2: Good performers will grow to distrust you

 

#3: Your stress will grow and may turn to anger

 

#4: Poor performers will consider you unfair and spread the word

That is, after you have been forced to take the action you should have taken long before.

 

#5: Building a case backward is the wrong way to go

Far too many managers wait until the “boiling point”, then they realize that there have been no discussions and no documentation. So (now they must) “build a case”


[COMMENT]

 

Plus one more critically important problem:

 

More often than not, the manager has provided a glowing assessment to "encourage" the errant employee.

 

"Perhaps, if I say it often enough, it will come true."

 

Armed with this documentation, it's only reasonable that the employee should hit the company with an unfair dismissal case.

 

 

Don Cloud's curator insight, January 23, 8:45 AM

Four key questions to ask when assessing poor performers:

 

1) Does the poor performers behavior set that person up for developmental success and growth?

 

2) Does the poor performers behavior set the organization up for success?

 

3) Does the poor performers behavior contribute to the purpose of the organization and is it consistent with the organization's values?

 

4) What are you as the leader going to do about it?

 

Option A:  Provide constructive feedback so they have an opportunity to improve and grow

 

Option B:  Demotion or other negative personnel action

 

Option C:  If they don't "get it", let him/her go

Don Cloud's curator insight, September 3, 2:01 PM

Turbulent times are where the "action is" and when leadership is needed the most ... and when it counts the most.  The only question is will you choose to grab the "turbulent" bull by the horns and lead your people and organization to even greater potential, or will you let someone else lead instead ( ... perhaps your competition or adversary)?

(From the article): When you get people in alignment with purpose, the alignment of specific goals and strategies will come much easier. But perhaps more importantly, when this clarity and meaning is achieved, the perspective of every team member will shift from “opportunity is nowhere” to “opportunity is now here.”

donhornsby's curator insight, August 21, 11:01 AM

(From the article): Getting a relationship with a coworker back on track may require that you put your ego away. “We often get stuck in our heads about who’s wrong and who’s right. And when you’re hooked on the idea that you’re right, you can’t start to repair the relationship because the issue of who’s at fault becomes a distraction,” says David. To satisfy this need to be right while not letting it affect how you interact with the person, David suggests “imagining the other person with a big, fat sticker on his back that says, ‘I’m wrong.’” Then you can just focus on moving the relationship forward.

#Coaching vs. #mentoring: what works best?

#Coaching vs. #mentoring: what works best? | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.

 

Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

Les termes de coaching et mentoring sont souvent utilisés et je n'avais pas vraiment réfléchi à la différence des deux approches. Si elles se basent toutes deux sur des échanges informels, elles ont un périmètre et des objectifs différents très bien expliqués dans l'article.

Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon #Leadership | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

More than we’d probably like to admit so many of our days are spent in a state of self-delusion, an internal monologue of justifying our actions, both good and bad. When we do something wrong, our evolutionary instincts kick in and we do anything we can to not acknowledge the obvious: sometimes, it’s all our fault.

Over time, this becomes our routine, our default reaction, and we fail to stop and reflect on what we’re doing. To make it even more difficult, many of us don’t have the luxury of someone being accountable for us (who does?), helping us recognize our mistakes and their repercussions.

Charlotte Hitchcock's curator insight, August 19, 5:37 AM

Know yourself before you  lead others. Understand why you respond as you do and  its affect on others.  Honesty about yourself can be hard but in the end it is worth it

This is a really compelling article that challenged me to reflect on the challenges of leadership.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, August 22, 3:25 AM

It's a very intersting topic and mostly I undersign it... though it's culture-dependent too... the context, the connotation you might have by reading e.g. this title... that  might  count too...  coming from a region where story-telling might be a substitute of lots of things, among other things, lying, or - as one of my cross-cultural researcher friend said once - saying "no", I have some reserves... but even in the Anerican culture, whether the executives of Enron e.g. weren't (surely not authentic but) excellent story-tellers? If you are with me on that... 

 

Of course, the message goes better into the deep with emotions and what is better than the story-telling like emotion-vehicle? of course... but to say that the future leader's main characteristics are courage and story-telling capacity is, I don't know, IMHO, not only simplistic but simply not enough...

 

Starting by the main point what story he/she should so well and authentically tell? What the content is of this famous story? I would start here when drawing this profile... and yes the sellability, the motivation-power, the capacity of  being able to attract the followers, to be able to align their energy are also important but somehow the content of all these has a certain priority in my mind...

S'Marie Young, CPCC's curator insight, August 22, 3:00 PM

This article highlights some of the qualities successful leaders of the present and future must cultivate, such as courage, resiliency, permeability and transparency. These qualities create a powerful presence, one that people can trust.


Presence is knowing yourself, your values, passions and goals, and being able to communicate them authentically. Presence is also being empathetic to the aspirations of others.
