Are underperforming employees a detriment to your team’s productivity and results?

Perhaps you’re not sure what action to take, or the actions you have taken are not getting the results you want.

This module will help you understand when and how poor performance can be improved.

As a leader, it's crucial to be able to discern between a "problem employee" (the one you want to move off your team) and an "employee with a problem" (the one who, with a bit of support could become a high performer). 

While the terms might sound similar, they refer to fundamentally different situations and how they are managed can significantly impact the team dynamic and overall productivity.

What to Expect

We’ll show you a simple process to help you assess the underlying cause of your employee’s underperformance so that you can choose the most effective response.
