  • Conducting a Performance Improvement Conversation

    In a workshop format, Steve teaches supervisors a Root Cause Analysis approach to improving a team member's performance in a specific metric. It includes such topics as setting healthy emotional environment, addressing the issue, gaining buy-in, identifying why the issue exists setting goals for improvement and effective follow-up.
