If you are a business leader and want to improve your team's performance as well as grow your own leadership skills, we've compiled a 7-part series of useful and insightful articles to guide you effectively and efficiently.
Part 1: Fuel your Team's Performance
We start by discussing how to improve the performance of the team you currently have. To start, how do you measure performance? Who on your team is performing well and who needs some help? What are some actionable steps you can take to today to get things moving in the right direction?
Employees despise them. Supervisors dread them. The antiquated and ineffective annual performance review needs to die.
There is some debate in Human Resources and leadership circles about employee engagement. What is it? What are the benefits of engaged employees? Can it be measured, and if so, is it worth the effort?
I always dreaded getting annual performance reviews, even though they usually went well. This one was different. "I gave you a ?failure to meet expectations' score because you didn't achieve your objectives for the year," my boss told me. The problem was I had no idea what my objectives were.
Many business leaders think that merely having warm bodies on staff is all that's required. They see these people as resources to be used and consumed, with a seemingly never-ending supply of replacements eager to take their place. Folly!
