Slide 18 Feedback Phrases to use: I know you want to improve, and if it s OK with you, I have a few suggestions. I know you like to do a good job. Here are some things for you to think about that might help you do it a little better. Slide 19 Be tough on standards, not on people - tom peters When giving feedback, give positive feedback first, then discuss opportunities for improvement Slide 20 Who Conducts Performance Coaching Sessions: All managers, all team members Associates need feedback more than contact with top managers They need it weekly Slide 21 Unleash Associates Motivation To Improve: Management hires, coaches, and communicates values and objectives If there is a problems, it is usually management s There are no bad soldiers, only bad generals - Napoleon Slide 22 Establishing Consequences Consequences laid out in advance. If people do A, B will happen. It s their choice. Coaching is encouragement, support yes; but it doesn t work unless there are meaningful, understood consequences If you hold on to ineffective people too long, you re being unfair to your organization and, more importantly, to effective performers Slide 23 Discipline Without Punishment Performance problems can usually be divided into three categories: Attendance Performance Conduct Slide 24 Traditional discipline systems: Step 1 - Verbal reprimand Step 2 - Written warning Step 3 - Suspension without pay/ probation/final warning Step 4 -Termination Slide 25 Discipline Without Punishment Level 1 - Oral reminder Level 2 - Written reminder Level 3 - Decision-making leave (paid) Level 4 - Termination Slide 26 In Discipline Without Punishment, it s up to associates to change on their own There has been enough discussion, they know the consequences Paid leave puts the onus on them Managers should view DWP as a technique for saving people. Each step is an opportunity to correct a problem. Termination is a failure Slide 27 Be a Coach Who watches game films every day and gives feedback one-on-one every day Not once a year Who s motivation is to teach the team how to win Teach to win, not to avoid a loss Without playing himself/herself
