Underperformance: Turning Stumbles into Strides
Underperforming team members can be a source of frustration, but remember, it's often a sign of a challenge, not a lack of potential.
As a leader, your role is to guide them back on track, not judge them.
Here's how you can turn stumbles into strides:
Focus on understanding, not blame.
Schedule a one-on-one meeting to discuss their performance openly and honestly.
Actively listen to their perspective, and avoid accusations.
Is it a skill gap? Lack of clarity about expectations? Personal obstacles?
