NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- “Making tough people decisions is hard for most executives, so most of them put off issues around underperformance far too long,” says Taylor Griffin of The Miles Group/TMG in the latest TMG C-Suite Intelligence podcast, “Managing Underperformance.” “Once they’ve addressed it, what I hear from every single person I coach is ‘I wish that I had handled this problem a lot sooner.’”

“Almost universally, companies hold onto underperformers longer than they should, and the costs are high,” says Griffin. “Most leaders don’t give themselves permission to dive in and figure out what the problem is, then manage and handle it. So they allow the person to continue to underperform instead of finding out what’s really going on.”

“The extensive time-suck on a leader or manager in dealing with the underperformer, a struggling team morale, and a diminished team performance are just some of the costs that come with letting problems linger,” explains Griffin. “You as a leader will be judged by how you handle these situations,” she adds. “Leaders are evaluated in how well they select and develop talent by whoever is the lowest performer on their team. If you have a bunch of all-stars but one person who is notably dragging down the rest of the team, people will question your judgment.”

In the episode, Griffin explains how to recognize symptoms of habitual low performers, the importance of collecting “data” around people to have notes and trends on performance, and how to give meaningful feedback in a timely manner to “catch” underperformance early on to mitigate damage.
