On the performance front the work of Robert Mager and his performance tree can be invaluable in helping to shape our conversations:
Tool#10- Performance Tree - Mager
One of most powerful frameworks I have shared with leaders and their teams around performance is Mager’s Performance Tree.
Mager created the Performance Tree as a way to get to the root cause of performance issues. This is a valuable tool, and conversation prompt, for team members and their team leaders, particularly in a virtual setting.
Mager’s Performance Tree takes us step by step through a series of questions around the performance issue. Many times we are quick to jump to “Training” as the solution, when in fact a performance challenge may be due to resourcing, work flow or the environment.
What are you doing as a team to get to the root cause of performance issues?
