Use A Simple Formula.
People rise or lower to the level of performance that is expected of them. Remove any chance that you might convey limiting beliefs about your employee by using a simple formula:
- State the facts you observed (and not the story you made up about those facts),
- State the impacts on the work, other employees, etc.,
- Make a clear request; and
- Let them know this request is because you see their potential.
