How to Help an Underperformer

How to Help an Underperformer | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it

Don’t ignore the problem


Too often these issues go unaddressed.  “Most performance problems aren’t dealt with directly,” says Weintraub. “More often, instead of taking action, the manager will transfer the person somewhere else or let him stay put without doing anything.” This is the wrong approach. Never allow underperformance to fester on your team. It’s rare that these situations resolve themselves. It’ll just get worse. You’ll become more and more irritated and that’s going to show and make the person uncomfortable,” says Manzoni. If you have an issue, take steps toward solving it as soon as possible.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

The assumption often is that poor performance is  result of some problem with the performer, but it would be wise to examine the circumstances closely because is it a common bias for people to attribute others failures to them and de-emphasize the situation factors that may be contributing.   Compounding this, we as managers often are biased in seeing our own success as the result of our efforts and failures as a result of happenstance and not our shortcomings— making it still harder for us to see how we might contribute to others' poor performance.

A great article worth practical ways to improve performance. ALL managers should be coached to do this type of thing.

It's tempting to delay dealing with under performers, but they rarely improve on their own. This article provides actionable advice that works in the real world.

The Future of Work: Research Report

The Future of Work: Research Report | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it

Today’s business leaders face the challenge of creating the future workplace. Because of the advent of new technologies as well as the emergence of Millennials as a major percentage of the workforce, the future workplace will look vastly different than the one we are used to. At the same time, a culture of sharing, transparency, and mobility is entering the business world, as technology barriers lower. This change is being driven by the consumerization of IT, which can be described as the introduction of the popular consumer-grade technologies and devices that are spreading into the workplace for business use.


To better understand the scope and nature of this changes, Chess Media Group conducted a global research study in May 2013, surveying 605 employees who currently use social and collaboration technology tools, and how these tools affect their ability to work efficiently and flexibly.

This is certainly interesting but this small survey is at best suggestive rather than indicative of the future of work.

Agreed. This was small study however it is interesting to compare it to others that have been conducted.
