Maximising Your Performance to Win: 10 Simple Tips

Maximising Your Performance to Win

Maximising Your Performance to Win: How to develop a winning performance to propel your business to success.

We know that the world of performance management has been shifting for some time and the yearly appraisal has not been at its prime for many years now despite it still being in widespread use. Times have moved on and the emphasis on static SMART objectives and the documented, paper appraisal that lays dormant in the personnel files has been replaced by the need for an agile, personal coaching and feedback approach that is adaptable to the ever-changing world of work. Never more so than in a post-pandemic era.

Here are 10 simple tips ahead of our action planning workshop. For more information, please join Sarah Loates and other business owners and managers to learn how you can maximise your performance management processes to get the very best from your team.

Maximising Your Performance to Win - 4th February - 10am - 1pm

  1. Make it personal. To get the best from your team get to know them personally and what makes them tick.
     
  2. Be clear. Make sure everyone knows what they need to do. Simple!
     
  3. Give everyone a purpose. Why are they doing what they are doing? What is their part in the bigger picture?
     
  4. Regularly check-in. Keep in touch with your team. Don’t micro-manage as people generally like a level of autonomy, but do ask them how they are getting on and catch up as often as is appropriate.
     
  5. Have coaching conversations. Most people know what went well and not so well so get into the habit of asking lots of questions rather than ‘telling’.
     
  6. Discuss development. Ask what ‘better’ looks like and set a plan to move ahead.
     
  7. Give praise and recognition. Focus on achievements. Be sincere and timely with your praise.
     
  8. Discuss when things aren’t going so well. Don’t wait. Discuss it now with ways to improve and move forward.
     
  9. Hold people accountable. If you’ve been clear on expectations and feedback, then you should hold people to account. With the desire for more autonomy comes accountability.
     
  10. Don’t let it become a chore. Reflect on why you want to do performance reviews. To reinforce values and culture, to help everyone achieve their best, enable the business to be successful in challenging times etc.
