Leadership Quick Tip:  Wanna know the truth about rewarded behavior gets repeated?

This is the third Quick Tip
In a series on leadership courage

Today we take a look at
The courage to give people
What their performance deserves

Every leader stumbles on this at some point
We know we have
How about you?

If you’re not giving people
What their performance deserves
You are holding back their performance

This is a serious problem

The solution is to
Reward everyone based on how well they perform
That’s it . . . period

If you’re looking for improved performance
Look no further
Here’s why

There is a leadership principle
That has proven true
Time and time again

The principle is this
Rewarded behavior gets repeated

If you reward high performers
They keep performing well

If you reward average performers
They keep performing average

If you reward poor performers
They keep performing poorly

Is this what you’re getting?

Is this what you want?

If the people you lead
Are not performing as they should
It is because you are allowing it

Is this where you plan to stay?
Or do you want to crank performance up?

The good news is this
Your performance as a leader
Is in your hands

Sure you can keep things the same
As long as the one above allows it
But that can change

Now is the time
For a call to action
Opportunity is waiting
It is waiting for you

Give those you lead
What their performance deserves

You will lift employee motivation
You will get performance improvement
And you will get the satisfaction
Of knowing you did it

All the best to your success,

Martha Forlines and Thad Green
