Understanding Performance: A Different Perspective

Like most managers, you have probably wondered “why won’t they do what I want them to do?”  While the answers to this question would be a long list, there actually are only four basic reasons for poor performance.  Managers have more control over performance than most understand or care to exercise.  This presentation focuses on these four reasons for poor performance and what managers can do to dramatically improve performance and team member engagement.
