Why You Need to Be Brutally Honest With Poor Performers

Why You Need to Be Brutally Honest With Poor Performers | Behavior, People and Organizations | Scoop.it
Allowing poor performers to remain on the payroll is a form of dishonesty that harms the entire organization. Yet managers claim giving poor performers negative feedback either to help them …

Via Anne Leong
Terence R. Egan's insight:

 

[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.

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, January 18, 2014 11:56 AM

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.

 

 

Don Cloud's curator insight, January 23, 2014 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

Change Management Models

Change Management Models | Behavior, People and Organizations | Scoop.it

Organizational development has been of focus for several years, but still many companies do not understand the importance of change management models. Almost 70% of all major organizational change efforts fail, which among others is because of a lack of holistic approach to the management of change and the extend of the models used. This emphasizes the importance for companies to have a good and realistic change management model before starting to implement the transformation.

If you believe that change is top down, this one's for you.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, April 3, 2014 4:01 AM

"Change is about changing people not organisations, organisations will transform when the management and employees change their way of doing business, which is why good change management models are central to a successful transformation of a firm." - could not agree more, yesss, it's about people...  change management is one of the leading topics... I don't know exactly, say, in the last 50 to 70 years and it will remain... it's not the first and last article/blog/book about it bu also not the worst one... additionally, a quick read...:-)))
