Everything a leader needs for Managing Poor Performance (Free eBook)

Posted by Simon Thiessen on 20-Nov-2018 14:36:24


What is underperformance costing you and your team? 

Having just one underperformer on your team can reduce the overall performance of the whole team by up to 40%.

That’s a lot of whatever it is your measuring: dollars, profits, widgets, quality, …

On its own, that’s a scary number – but it gets worse when we add management into the equation.

Let’s say it like it is: managing poor performance is one of the things most managers like least – and one of the things they do worst.

Over more than 20 years we have learnt a lot about dealing with employees who perform and behave poorly. In this eBook we have shared our most successful tips and strategies – and it’s completely free to download!

Ignoring underperformance is obviously not an option – it’s costing your organisation, your team and your career way too much.

Handling it poorly is not an option either – that can undermine your leadership and create further problems, ongoing conflict and resentment, and also trigger an escalation to senior management or Human Resources.
