Ultimately, one of the most important tasks of a manager is to support the career
growth and success of your employees.
As managers, you are confronted with a long list of day-to-day tasks that must be
addressed in order to keep your department running efficiently. While these daily
tasks are important, and can easily monopolize your time, there are also issues related
directly to an employee's performance that periodically need to be addressed.
These issues range from small challenges that can be easily corrected, to much larger
problems that have the potential to impact the morale or productivity of your entire
team. That's why it's important to have a clear understanding of policies and procedures
related to performance management. Ultimately, your effective leadership can contribute
to the satisfaction and success of your employees — both individually and as a team.
