Designing and Implementing Performance Improvement Plans (PIPs) that Really Work

Duration: 60 minutes

It would be great if managers could deliver nothing but positive feedback. But in some cases, what employees need most is candid feedback about weaknesses that endanger their job or prevent their career advancement. It’s the manager’s job to deliver that feedback as part of a well-thought-out performance improvement plan. But too many managers and supervisors shirk this critical responsibility. This program will show you how to use PIPs to salvage the employees you want to keep. (more details below)

WHY ATTEND

Why are managers so reluctant to deliver negative feedback? They're either afraid to confront workers about substandard results or they just don't understand how to do it effectively.

But without frank and specific feedback, low performers continue to deliver unacceptable results. Even worse: When top performers see that managers tolerate poor results from other team members, they get frustrated and leave.

Luckily there’s a solution. Managers can be taught how to deliver feedback that boosts performance. They simply need a blueprint for how to design, deliver and follow up on performance improvement sessions. That’s what this session delivers.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Talk to employees candidly about unacceptable performance
  • Conduct a “root-cause analysis” to reveal why performance problems exist
  • Determine if YOU may be part of the problem
  • Design a performance improvement plan (or PIP) that is specific, time-bound, and fact-based
  • Identify and remove barriers that stand in the way of improvement
  • Secure from employees a re-commitment to high performance
