Leadership: Teaching – Performance improvement plan

Change your mindset conceptYou have an employee who does excellent work.  When they are there on time.  Focused on the task at hand.  Not distracted by some personal drama in their life. And not sharing their drama with someone else on your team.  And not on the phone telling someone else about their drama.  And not abusing their “personal use” of the company internet connection.  They have a good heart, are concerned about doing well, but lack some focus on the big picture of individual performance while actually at work.  We have all been there at some point or another and will most likely visit there again, at a different company with different people. Everyone has different ideas, thoughts, expectations, etc. about what constitutes good work.  So for a certain part of the work population, you might have to spell it out. In order to do so, Google “performance improvement plan” and find the best example that you like, then use it.  Sometimes that lowest performer can turn out to be your best with a little coaching and guidance.
