4 Types of Performance Conversations for Leaders and Managers Social

Performance conversations are extremely important in your job as a manager. A fundamental part of your role is giving feedback to improve your teams’ effectiveness as well as helping each member develop their skills and career. In this podcast we're looking at the four broad performance categories: Underperformers, Average to good performers, High performers and High potential and the things you need to be mindful of when you’re discussing with your team members where they sit on the scale. We’ve developed a simple template to make it easier for you too and it can be used in several different and very useful ways, some of which we discuss below.

In this episode

  • Delving into the 4 broad performance categories
  • When discussing performance, include things like skills, achievements and strengths and to what degree each person is performing as per expectations
  • Discuss as a team for all round agreement, clarity and setting expectations
  • And remember the 80/20 rule and be mindful of where you're putting your energy, time and attention. Don’t labour over minor issues. Focus instead on those that are likely to yield a result if they are fixed.
  • How to have a discussion with the underperformers
  • Why performance conversations is an art and a science
