Managing individual performance

Managing performance is a fundamental responsibility of anyone who has people reporting to them. Managers need to agree expectations, not just about what needs to be done, but also how it’s done. They need to provide ongoing support and feedback to motivate and develop their people, and take appropriate action where performance isn’t at the required level.
