At some point in their careers, most managers will have the challenge of dealing with underperformers. Clearly it isn’t acceptable to get them to eat creepy crawlies in order to “Get them out of here!” – however much you may feel like it at the time. Often managers do not find out that they have hired an underperformer until it is far too late, and managing someone out of a business can be expensive, litigious, and it isn’t fun for anyone.
However, no one joins a company in order to underperform – not that we know of anyway! What if this underperformance could be prevented through clear onboarding, goal setting and coaching along the way. In fact, what if the manager is the cause of the problem, or the individual just needs more support or clarity? We do have a blog that explores whether or not you have got an underperformer that you can access here.
