Story: Charlotte needs to make sure she’s getting the best performance from her team. Chef Tom is being rude to other members of the team and Charlotte needs to address this before it gets out of hand. His performance is also not up to the required standard. She plans to discuss and agree a Performance Improvement Plan with him. Tom is difficult to communicate with, and has complained to other team members that he feels picked on – so this is not going to be easy.
Meanwhile, Charlotte has observed Oscar, who is being developed for a Team Leader role, having a crisis of confidence. She needs to intervene before this starts to impact on his wellbeing and performance. She makes time for a coaching conversation that helps Oscar to look at things with a new perspective.
