Middle solid performers make up half of our organization and have a lot to offer. It’s important for leaders to give them direction and opportunities to grow. Today we focus on 5 actions you can take to best support middle performers.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- What do middle performers want from their leaders?

- How can you provide middle performers with the right feedback?
Solid Performers: Who Are They? is the third episode in a series describing the performance curve and performance conversations, beginning with Ep. #16 High Performers: Who Are They?.
Effective performance management requires continuous conversations with employee. A leader engages with all groups of employees, but in different ways. The first step in this communication process is for the leader to determine the performance level of each employee.
Workplaces are full of employees who are loyal to the organization, willing to achieve goals, and eager to improve their performance. The support high solid performers crave included conversations focused on opportunities for development and expansion of skills.
