Managing Underperformers


Management is all about getting results through people, bringing out the best in them, motivating and supporting them, and knowing what’s going on.
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you find that a member of your team is not performing to your expectations. What can you do about it? How can you be seen to be fair? Does coaching and training make a difference – and what happens if under-performance continues? This programme gives you the practical solutions you can use now.
