It's time for a change
Approaching a conversation with a low performer is probably not your favorite task. However, ignoring bad behavior or performance will negatively impact others in the organization. Address the situation quickly and effectively using this guide to keep the rest of your team focused on achieving results.
Positively Improve Performance
Think about the last time you received constructive criticism. Did it actually prompt you to change your behavior? Maybe not. Yet we know learning new skills and improving performance is something our peers and direct reports desire. The key is to reshape your feedback conversations to focus on achieving a positive outcome together.
Maximize Rounding in Your Organization
There isn’t a wrong way to conduct rounding – unless you are avoiding it all together. When we round, our goal is to build relationships with our stakeholders. It doesn’t matter if we approach rounding in a formal or informal fashion. Its true value is in the connection itself.
Can I make people want to be better?
Managing Up is a behavior that is essential for reducing anxiety, building teamwork, and eliminating a culture of negative communication. The practice of managing up paints the receiver and sender of the positive communication in a positive light. It also encourages more of the right work and behaviors we want to see in our organization.
Are you fully invested?
High performing organizations want to fill their employee ranks with owners and effective leaders seek to recruit employees who exhibit ownership, while at the same time strategically developing ownership in current employees. Fortunately, leaders can find, hire, and retain owners within their organizational ranks.
Reduce turn-over by asking the right questions.
