Course overview

The thought of talking to employees about underperformance of any kind can be daunting. After all, nobody wants to feel like the bad guy. But performance issues can’t be ignored. If they aren’t addressed, they can undermine the business’s overall performance. And crucially, if performance issues aren’t discussed openly, employees who aren’t hitting the mark miss the chance to improve and fully contribute.
