No Contract of Employment – No Defence

No Employee Handbook – No Defence

No Job Description – No Defence

When there is harmony in the workplace and everyone is working towards a common objective, no one ever thinks of contracts, job descriptions and employee handbooks. There is no need to because everyone is properly aligned.

But things can and do change. External circumstances/influences can cause employees to becomes less satisfied at work, or less focused on their work. Changes internally in the organisation can lead employees to feel less valued and may cause them to questions their position.

Sometimes you get employees who are competent in their roles but simply not committed to the company or their fellow team members. When a conversation about poor performance does not seem to work and the situation seems to be deteriorating with no party willing to find a resolution, you have to look at all your options.

You have very few options when you do not have the infrastructure in place that will allow clarification of role, clarification of rules and clarity on the process that can and must take place to rectify the situation.

What percentage of your team are working below par?

Do you have team members whose performance you need to question?

Have you been avoiding addressing team issues because you have no infrastructure?

What is this costing you and your business?

What do your other employees think about you when they see you not addressing poor performance?

Do you think this may have an impact on their performance?

Time to take action. Call me today to schedule a review on your employment infrastructure.

Hi I’m Derek O’Dwyer. I have been an ActionCOACH for the last 18 years. I live in Clare and work with businesses around Ireland to take their business to the next level. I am passionate about business and providing help and advice. In the past 18 years I have worked with over 400 business owners helping them and their business. I adapt my coaching depending on what you and your business need. I find that each coaching relationship is different but as long as we understand that we have a common objective with timescales, positive things happen quickly. I am a firm believer i the concept of “what you can measure you can manage” and “what you measure you can improve”. Key performance indicators and accountability form the bedrock of my coaching platforms. If making more money from your business, working less hours in your business and having a great team running your business then it’s worth having a discussion with me. If you are willing to implement changes I will be there to help every step of the way. In terms of personal accolades and recognition I have been awarded ActionCOACH of the year in Ireland every year for the last ten years In 2019 I was inducted into the ActionCOACH Global Hall Of Fame I was global Rookie Coach of The Year in 2002 having achieved remarkable success as the first ActionCOACH in Europe.
