Setting your employees up for success

How to proactively manage your team

We are often called upon by employers and managers to advise on situations where issues with performance arise with employees, and the manager/employer has reached the end of their patience with the individual.

We are also regularly asked by employers about how to manage employees who do not do what is required or are not up to standards.

Whilst we can advise and resolve issues using a formal performance management process it is much better to head off the issues at an early stage and avoid the formal process altogether. In this episode 230 of the podcast I bring you a run down of the key things you can do to set your employees up for success. In this episode of the podcast we cover:

  • Assessing and checking if you and your team understand their role and contribution to the business
  • How to start in setting out goals and targets for each employee
  • Why it is important to have the goals and targets and aims in place
  • How it will help you in the long run
  • How to proactively manage your team
  • Why it is important to proactively manage your team
  • What typically happens when the foundation work has not been done
  • Why it inevitably leads to a dispute if the foundation is not in place and proactively managed
  • The action points that you can take now to set up for success and prevent problems from arising
