We All Have Made Performance Management Mistakes
From being too tough to not tough enough, performance management mistakes happen. Because performance management is at the heart of a high performance culture, performance management mistakes can be costly.
What is a High Performance Culture?
We define organizational culture as how things truly get done in an organization. It can be measured by understanding the way people think, behave and work. A high performance culture is an environment that is getting the most from its people in both the short- and long term. We believe that people change when their environment changes.
We also believe it is a leader’s job to create the circumstances to consistently get the most out of their people in a way that is consistent with the organization’s core values, behaviors and strategies.
The Definition of Performance Management
We define performance management as the processes and practices by which you provide your employees with information regarding their performance status. Strong performance management practices help to set clear performance expectations, let people know where they stand in terms of performance, provide positive feedback for desired behaviors and provide negative feedback for undesired behaviors.
