Face It: Under Performers Affect Your Bottom Line

Posted: 12th February 2015

Hunter Adams logo…Your conversations matter to your business…


You know that under performers affect your bottom line.  You want to create a culture where people know how well they are performing and understand the impact of their performance on team goals.  You are good at giving feedback, but want to be more focused and structured in the way you do it.  You want your team to feel motivated to perform at their best and you want to be able to have the right conversations with staff to keep them motivated.  We have the right tools to help you achieve this.


Your people need to understand what they’re doing well and what they need to change to do better. It is crucial to summarise a project or piece of work in a way that helps employees understand their contribution to the company’s aims and strategic development.


A half-day workshop from Hunter Adams will give you the right tools, insight and confidence to deliver crucial messages to your team to ensure they are at their best all year round.  The aim of the workshop is to empower you to give precise performance feedback to your team. After all, you want you and your team performing at optimum levels.

The workshop is designed to place knowledge, tools, techniques and experience together and push you on your way to giving excellent feedback to your team.  We know it feels difficult doing this. But here is the reality: it might always feel difficult, but the more you give feedback using the right approach, the better you will become at it.

And that’s when you’ll get the responses you want from your team.


During this session we’ll blend theory, practice, observation, reflection and action planning. We’ll cover the following topics:

  • Why feedback matters and what employees want
  • Overcoming fears about delivering feedback
  • Being courageous in difficult situations
  • Delivering feedback that matters
  • Inspiring your team to achieve their potential

Workshops on the crucial skills required to deliver performance messages to your team will be held:
