Gently Confronting a Low Performer - a Letter
A few years ago I had occasion to write the following letter to someone not performing the work they were assigned. I use it as an example of writing a gently confrontational letter about low performance or non-performance.
- It is factual.
- It is confrontational.
- It is gentle.
- It is inviting.
You'll not see criticism, condemnation, negative judgment, or blame.
I believe all good leadership comes from a spirit of kindness, curiosity, humility, and a commitment to what is best for the organization and for each individual under your care.
