Topic: Running Scared or Making Waves: Combating Poor Workplace Performance.

Why do some leaders tolerate poor performance for so long, and why are some perceived as bullying when they address it? How performance issues can be addressed more effectively?

This presentation will explain the psychology behind why some managers allow poor performance to carry on for too long before they intervene, why others often jump in too quick and aggressively, and why neither approach is particularly effective in getting the desired change in behaviour. The personality differences and self-defeating beliefs behind both approaches will be discussed.

Dr Paul Wood, Director of Switch Coaching and Consulting and What’s Your Prison?

Paul is passionate about personal and professional development. This passion is the result of his personal experience of overcoming adversity and engaging in positive change and growth. Paul’s Master’s degree and Doctorate focused on how people’s personalities and other attributes differ from one another and how knowledge of such differences can be applied to help recruit and develop the most engaged and productive of employees. Paul has guest lectured on these topics at the University of Auckland, the University of Canterbury, University of Otago, Massey University, and Victoria University.

This particular presentation will be useful for anyone that has to address performance gaps with employees and wishes to do so more effectively. It will also be useful for those who wish to coach their leaders towards more effective performance interventions.
