Once you become familiar with the questions youÂ´ll be able to assess which conversation is needed in a matter of minutes. YouÂ´ll be on your way to managing underperformance instead of living with its effects.
- Does the person know whatÂ´s expected?
- Has the person performed to standard in the past?
- Have you already addressed the performance problem more than once?
- Does the person have the capability of performing to standard?
- Is the person coachable?
