Team Performance – Enhancing Managerial Effectiveness
At Hotel Chancery


In the highly volatile, high growth industrial environment, young talent has high aspirations and therefore is very demanding. Every body expects recognition, quick growth, continuous value addition thro quality work and learning opportunities. They are willing to stretch, make several personal sacrifices to realize their ambitions thereby making continuous demands on the organisation, most of it through the manager.

This necessitates setting right expectations, putting the right metrics in place to evaluate performance & reward and ability to channelise energies productively for mutual benefit. The other critical factors in Performance Management are the ability to confront situations, provide constant feedback, effective coaching to enable performance & growth. Since all employees are not equal and bring different value it is important that a manager learns to differentiate performance. This would mean manage not only the great performers but also poor performers & misfits in the system as well as employees who would be average but manage the grind. Not managing performance well, has been one of the major contributors to attrition.
