The right feedback can change a low performer’s life.

Why do leaders need to address toxic behavior immediately? Because negative behavior drags the entire organization down. 66% of employees who deal with a toxic team member said their performance declined in a recent HBR Study. In this episode, we reveal an approach you can use to support low-solid performers, the 8 types of toxic employees, and 4 steps to dealing with toxic employees.

This episode addresses questions, such as:

  • How can we support a low-solid performer to help them move up the performance curve?
  • How do we have difficult conversations with toxic employees?
  • What can we do with low performing employees who don’t change their behavior?

Addressing Poor Performance is the final episode in a series describing the performance curve and performance conversations, beginning with Ep. #16 High Performers: Who Are They?.
