5 Questions to ask yourself

If you have an employee underperformance issue, it can be linked back to your leadership abilities. I know that might be a tough pill to swallow, but it’s the cold hard truth. (Said lovingly) At the end of the day, you hold the keys to the success of your team.

If you’ve been dealing with employees who continually underperform, take a step back and look at your business from a bird’s eye view and ask yourself:

  • Did I make the expectations clear?
  • Did I provide sufficient training for them to perform the job and carry out the work requirement
  • Is the workload too heavy?
  • Are they the right fit for the position?
  • Are there any external influences prohibiting them from performing their duties?
  • Have I provided an adequate amount of follow-up and feedback


As a leader, when you take time to reflect, you are able to see the big picture and make better decisions. When you make better decisions, you have a healthier culture, happier employees, and less turnover.

I know I don’t have to tell you how important culture is when it comes to retaining employees. One of the keys to retention is knowing your employees on a deeper level. There are many tools like the DISC assessment to help you ascertain if people are in the right positions to give you the output you need to take your business to the next level.
