There are four keys to making sure your employees are performing at their best. 

  1. Making sure they understand what you expect and that they are able and willing to meet those expectations,
  2. Making sure that they are able to demonstrate, behaviorally, the competencies that are required by the job,
  3. Providing feedback about what they are good at and what they are not as good at, and
  4. Structuring developmental opportunities and making them available for employees, as well as encouraging them to take on developmental activities and further training.
