What a pain - it's appraisal time again!
What if you were managing and coaching for the highest levels of performance? There is an interesting formula:-
Current performance = Potential - internal / external interence
Attitudes to performance management vary enormously within organisations. There will be managers and team leaders in your organisation who take the whole concept of performance management really seriously; however there will be others who see it as a necessary chore, almost something that gets in the way of the day job! If you consider the formula above the current performance of any individual is often much below their potential – now we consider this to be a function of interference. This interference can be either a) internal e.g. limiting beliefs or thinking loops that stop us from being the best we can or b) situations in place within the workplace that just stop us from really growing and achieving our true potential.
Firstly we believe that directors, managers and team leaders have to develop their performance management skills and underlying mindset. This kind of development will ensure that they are able to do the following: –
Secondly we believe that performance management is a year-round task and often is best deployed within the context of performance coaching. The skills of building accountability and responsibility, asking great questions and listening carefully to the answer crucial to the development of individuals. Within the skill of performance coaching also comes the ability to reflect back and summarise what others have said, as well as the ability to give constructive feedback. Using these skills will help with the reduction of internal and external interference.
Here again, mindset is critical: the line manager as coach needs to stop giving lots of advice whilst asking more questions – thus making their team members work that much harder to solve their own problems. If there was ever an antidote to being constantly required to answer questions/make decisions for your team, it would be to ask them more questions!

All of this collectively can help you create a high-performance organisation!
