The leverage point is the Supervisor for most things that are not systemic. So, since I was writing on this, I thought to also do a short poem:
New hires take a few months to lose interest and motivation. And it is the Supervisor who can bring things back together. Give them some simple training and some tools to deal more effectively with performance, both the coaching of people and the facilitation of ideas. Implementation and ownership are keys to performance improvement.
The Square Wheels Project is a simple course on facilitating workplace engagement and involvement, designed for front-line managers.
For the FUN of It!
