HOW DO I GET MY STAFF TO PERFORM?

Why your staff don’t ‘just do it’ and how to ensure they do!
We’ve all said it. “Why can’t they just DO it? Why does it have to be so HARD?”

I know you can do it. You used to do their role yourself and you likely did it spectacularly… but now as a Manager, you can’t do everything yourself, right? You tell yourself it’s just common sense. They should just know what needs to be done.

It’s the trap that so many former high performers fall into when they step into a management role. Sure, it’s easier and maybe quicker to just do it all yourself, but that will keep you stuck…. and likely burn you out. Your role now is to get other people to do it to the same standard of excellence.

However, getting results through others requires a new mindset and a different set of skills. It’s all about defining clear but inspiring expectations, building positive, productive relationships, developing accountability managing underperformance, addressing problems quickly and maintaining a continual coaching routine that keeps your team on track and grows them toward success.

It is possible to build that high performing team you dream of, but it won’t happen by accident.
Learn the specific, leadership actions you need to lead your team to success.

BREAKTHROUGH CONVERSATIONS
If you’ve ever managed people, you’ll know that it doesn’t always go according to plan. Staff may not meet your expectations in areas like behaviour or performance, and these issues won’t just ‘go away’ or magically resolve themselves by avoiding a conversation or sticking your head in the sand!
We add to the frustration by telling ourselves things like, ‘There’s no point- they’ll just get upset!”, so we allow underperformance or unacceptable behaviours to become the ‘norm’- to the detriment of the business and your culture. Always remember that your other staff are watching to see what you do. Does your vision and mission actually mean something or was it all just fancy words in an employee manual?
There’s no need to fear or avoid these conversations. Handled with skill and a clear and positive mindset, these moments can be the breakthrough you dreamed of…. rather than the nightmare you’d feared.
As leaders, we have a responsibility to give our staff the best possible chance of being successful in their roles and that means clear expectations, rock-solid boundaries and conversations to restore accountability and get them back on track when they inevitably get distracted.
You’ll learn the 3-step process for approaching potentially difficult conversations and how to manage those issues that just seem to happen over and over again!
Develop the confidence to calmly deal with issues with they’re small, before they get out of hand, so you never need to lose sleep over a staff member again.
