Aims & Objectives:

Sustained underperformance can precede a Capability or Conduct issue…but we should do all we can to avoid this outcome.

  • The over-riding aim is to encourage supervisors and managers to clarify what they need to do to encourage underperforming staff to ensure the delivery of a quality service or product.
  • Through discussion and breakout groupwork the delegates will draw on their own experiences of working in management roles and reflect on good practice in order to enhance existing skills.
  • By engaging a member of the HR department, the group will agree a consistent approach to documentation in line with GDPR guidelines (if appropriate)

Target Audience:

Managers who are wanting to agree best practice around dealing with underperformance.

Those willing to support their team members to develop the competence and confidence to perform effectively in role.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the half-day online workshops, delegates will;

  • Understand the various causes of underperformance
  • Discuss the benefits of “Grasping the nettle” – turning performance round
  • Reflect on the need to adapt their style according to the issue
  • Agree a consistent approach to documentation
