    Discover a 6-step strategy for holding employees accountable—without hurt feelings or turnover.

Ignoring underperformance will destroy morale and create a “mediocrity mindset” among employees

Many managers find it difficult to effectively correct underperformance. That’s especially true with two kinds of chronic underperformers—the really nice or popular team member and the angry, defiant one. Too often, their poor performance is ignored under the guise of “preserving peace.” Ignoring underperformance, however, will destroy morale, crush productivity and drive good employees away.

High performers often abandon organizations where average/poor performance is excused. Those who stay may adopt a “mediocrity mindset” and see no reason to work hard if others aren’t held accountable for their poor work.

This dynamic webinar will teach managers and leaders how to facilitate a constructive initial conversation, create a coaching strategy that directly ties performance to key objectives, and hold the person accountable with quantifiable metrics. If you or some of your managers are avoiding having difficult conversations, these strategies will help improve results and ensure progress.
