I was talking with first-line supervisors in a utility company about how to deal with poor performing employees.
"You've gotta put the screws to him!" suggested one supervisor to his colleague who was having trouble managing one particular poor performer.
"I've put so many screws to him he's dead weight!" the supervisor replied.
We all knew what "putting the screws to him" meant -- using rewards and punishments to force change in behavior.
The trouble is Ryan Johansen Predators Jersey , rewards and punishments are the least effective ways of dealing with poor performers. That's because poor performers are usually smart, motivated, and tenacious -- when it comes to poor performing.
To change the behavior of poor performers, avoid the outside-in approach of rewards and punishments and cultivate an inside-out approach.
Aesop understood that. There is the Aesop's fable of the wind and sun competing to see who can remove a coat from a man. The wind tries to blow the coat off, but the man clutches it tightly to his body. Then the sun grows hotter Pekka Rinne Predators Jersey , and the man, perspiring heavily and getting hotter and hotter, gladly rips the coat off.
The leadership lesson is clear: You can bluster and blow to get somebody to accomplish a task, but that's not as effective as setting up a situation in which the person gladly does it.
Here is a way to deal with poor performers using Aesop's lesson: the 90-Day Improvement Plan. A business leader tells me that he uses such plans as tools for change. Each plan is comprised of two pages: the first page pointing out that the individual must improve and the second page detailing the precise ways that improvement must take place.
"Be specific about improvement," he says. "For instance Filip Forsberg Predators Jersey , one leader I gave an Improvement Plan to was very bright but was not getting results. He tended to deal with future, strategic issues; whereas our business wants results now, preferably yesterday. We identified specific ways he could improve his performance in getting results, such as precise calls to make and exact, quick-closing targets to pursue."
The objective of 90-Day Improvement Plans should not be to get rid of people. "Their objective is to improve performance Matt Duchene Gold Jersey ," he says. "Though I do write on the first page, ?If the objectives are not met, further actions, including dismissal, can be taken.'"
He sometimes combines Improvement Plans with the force-ranking of all his leaders into a 206020 continuum. The bottom 20 percent get the Plan. He says Ryan Johansen Gold Jersey , "My objective is to have the bottom 20 percent be indispensable leaders."
Mind you, in developing a 90-day Improvement Plan, keep Aesop's fable in mind and seek not compliance but commitment. The Improvement Plan must not be imposed from without but agreed upon. Here is a four-step process to do that.
First, all parties must agree to develop a 90-Day Improvement Plan. If people are forced to do it, it won't work as it should.
Second Pekka Rinne Gold Jersey , ask the poor performers to describe what should be in it. Remember, you can veto any suggestions. However, it is best if its key components come from the other people. Only after they have run out of suggestions do you incorporate yours.
Third, develop the Plan together, and agree on its action steps.
Fourth Filip Forsberg Gold Jersey , implement it. Have weekly or bi-weekly meetings to insure the Plan is being carried out.
If the Plan is forced upon someone, it becomes just another screw, another imposed reward punishment. However, if it is put together with mutual consent, indeed with mutual enthusiasm Cheap Matt Duchene Jersey , it becomes the screw driver by which poor performers may very well gladly put the screws into themselves.

Types of filter clothes used in home
Posted by meghayadav045 on August 13th, 2018
The majority of at home coffee drinkers use a drip coffee machine. The coffee grinds are contained in a basket or cone-shaped filter. Most of us don't give a second thought about the quality of the filters that we are using.
Here are some types of the filter which are used widely in the home Cheap Ryan Johansen Jersey , which you should know:
The most common filter used in households today is the paper filter. This is a no mess way of making coffee. Just lift the paper filter out along with the coffee grinds and dispose of it. The whole mess is even compost friendly. Paper filters stop any sediments from passing through. They also prevent most of the coffee oils from passing as well. This results in a smoother, weaker tasting coffee. Not all paper filters are created the same. Different pore sizes will allow more or fewer oils to pass through. There is a danger of passing a paper taste on to the brew though.
Cloth filters are usually made of unbleached cotton. They allow more of the coffee oils to pass through which results in a stronger cup of coffee, but without letting the grinds and sediment pass through. A cloth filter will typically last several months with proper care. It is the care and cleaning that makes these an unpractical choice for the majority of households. There are mostly two types of filter that are widely used a popular; cotton filter cloth and polyester filter cloth.
Stainless steel filters
Similar to the plastic filters, stainless steel filters will last for years with proper care. These are often called gold tone filters as they have been coloured gold.
