Driving high performance

“The best way to inspire people to superior performance is to convince them by everything you do and by your everyday attitude that you are wholeheartedly supporting them.” – Harold S. Geneen

performanceThis month we are continuing our blog topic series on key challenges that our leaders face. If you recall, we surveyed many leaders throughout the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities last December and learned what challenges they were confronting every day. One of the challenges repeated over and over by our leaders had to do with driving high performance. Some of this was expressed as challenges in holding people accountable and others were expressed in ways to effectively support their teams. Here are some of the topics you can expect this month as we explore the challenge of driving high performance.

  • Setting performance goals and monitoring goal progress
  • Removing barriers
  • Coaching good performance
  • Conducting great performance reviews
  • Modeling accountability
  • Individual development planning
  • Crucial conversations and fierce conversations

What specific challenges do you encounter while driving high performance? What are the barriers you face? What has worked well for you? We invite you to join the conversation this month by commenting below.
