How are you performing? As an organisation? As a team? As individuals?
For so long Performance Management has been for many, a yearly drudge that ticks a box. But that isn’t the way to get the best out of any of your people or your business.
To be honest I really dislike the term. However, it does what it says on the can. The important part is HOW it does what it says on the can!
EVERYONE, starting at the top needs to work as part of ONE team and it doesn’t matter whether you’re the CEO or the apprentice, each and every person has an incredibly important role to play in the success of the organisation!
Effective performance management is regular, ongoing and has a clear PURPOSE – to ENGAGE every member of the WHOLE team, to INSPIRE them to play their part in achieving the VISION and GOALS of the business. Most of us love to have purpose and by clearly showing your people what their purpose is in the business, will help them and you along the journey.
SUCCESSFUL Performance Management sets out the goals of the organisation
Are your people doing what they need to do to achieve their individual goals and targets?
Are your teams doing what they need to do to achieve their objectives?
Do they know what their goals are?
Do they know what they’re meant to be achieving?
How is this communicated?
How is this measured?
Performance management requires you to evaluate your people and teams’ efficiency. As organisational culture develops, the ways and means to measure performance evolve. Long, drawn out, rigid, annual performance reviews are increasingly a thing of the past.(Thankfully!)
