How-To: Manage an Underperformer

By Brad Karsh, President, JB Training Solutions
Working with an underperformer ranks as one of the most difficult challenges any manager will face. Whether your underperformer consistently produces “meh” work, makes the same mistakes again and again, or just feels like dead weight on the team, poor performance must be addressed immediately. Great managers and leaders take the time to work with these employees to transform them into major contributors and higher-level employees. Here are a few best practices to keep in mind when managing an underperformer:

Call Them No. 1...Again!

Verizon picked up the No. 1 spot on the Training Top 125 for the second year in a row, earning its induction into the Top 10 Hall of Fame in 2014 after securing positions in the Top 10 for the last four consecutive years. No. 4 Farmers Insurance likewise punched its ticket to the Top 10 Hall of Fame next year. Top 5 newcomers Jiffy Lube International, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, and CHG Healthcare Services nabbed Nos. 2, 3, and 5, respectively.

Soapbox: Building Career Courage

By Bill Treasurer, Founder, Giant Leap Consulting
I am a big ’fraidy cat. From my knee-shaking fear of heights to my tongue-stammering fear of authority figures, I live a life that seems imbued with fear. You may find it surprising, then, that I am a professional courage-builder. My personal mission, and the mission of the courage-building company I founded a decade ago, is to help people and organizations be more courageous.

Bite-Size Is the Right Size

By Sebastian Bailey, Ph.D., Co-Founder and President, Mind Gym We live in a culture of instant updates and short attention spans. We struggle to spend seconds away from our smart phones, never mind days out of the office in training. But that doesn’t mean personal development must sit on the back burner. From sermons to ancient Greek plays, piano lessons to TV documentaries, we have learned things in bite-size chunks for thousands of years. Why should training at work be any different? Bite-size Is Cheaper and More Effective

Supercompetent Speaking: Proper Presentation Attire

By Laura Stack, MBA, CSP Most business professionals quickly learn and understand the basics of presentation attire. But I’ve come to the conclusion that a many people suffer from colorblindness, complete lack taste, or else have no idea how to dress professionally. Admittedly, for a few speakers, dysfunctional dress is their shtick (you know who you are). But the rest need a quick review on image on the platform.

Where Does the Customer Experience Begin?

By Norma Jarman, Training Account Manager, Signature Worldwide Many business operators may believe the customer experience begins when the customer arrives at your place of business. However, in reality, the customer experience begins when a customer decides he or she needs a specific service or item you provide.

Engaging Employees With a Healthy Nudge

By Peter Saravis, CEO and Co-Founder, Evive Health One of the fundamental goals of any Human Resources professional is finding the most effective way to motivate employees and to engage them in ways that allow them to be their very best. But central to this simple truth is the reality that employees cannot perform as hoped if they are not healthy. And that puts corporate America at a disadvantage.
