The 4 Principles of Performance Improvement
Whenever undertaking performance improvement, managers need to keep four key principles in mind. These principles can be easily remembered by the mnemonic CASH:
Consequence – unless there are consequences for non-performance there will be no motivation to change.
Attitude – unless people are prepared to accept their role in their own development they will not get involved. Additionally, if performance improvement has traditionally meant a quick road to dismissal then they may be nervous or intimidated by the manager’s desire to “discuss performance”.
Self Discovery – people will rarely improve their performance if they are ‘told’ what needs to change. They need to ‘own’ any areas of improvement.
Honesty – people need to be honest about both their strengths and weaknesses if they are to improve. Sometimes they will be ‘blind’ to both and will need help in ‘seeing’.
