Telling Underperforming Team Member
Question: How would you tell a team member that he/she was underperforming?
a. You should use examples in which you gave constructive feedback.
b. It’s good to be compassionate, but strict.
c. Show that you take initiative when dealing with teammates.
Example: There was an employee at my last position who was turning in sloppy reports– lots of spelling mistakes and bad formatting. I thought at first he was slacking off, but I found out he was hired without word processing experience. Since nobody else thought to train the kid, I took the time to show him the basics and everything worked out.
