Performance Improvement Process

Here is the proven “Positive Discipline” Performance Improvement Process:

  • IDENTIFY the problem using specific descriptions of desired performance vs. actual performance.
  • ANALYZE the severity of the problem by examining its impact, the consequences the employee will face if not corrected, and “past practices” for similar situations.
  • DISCUSS the problem. Gain the employee’s agreement and identify action plans. Inform the employee if formal discipline is involved.
  • DOCUMENT the nature of the problem, the history of the problem, and what was said in the discussion.
  • FOLLOW UP to recognize improvement or take appropriate action if the problem has not been corrected.

Cinderella Man

“Regardless of what came before or of what has yet to come, what matters most right now is how I choose to respond to the challenge before me. Will I lie down or will I fight?
The choice is mine and I choose to Finish Strong.”
~Dan Green

Excerpted from Finish Strong 
The story of Jim J. Braddock, the “Cinderella Man,” is one of my favorites. It’s about a working man’s rise to the top, his fall to the very bottom and then his ascension to heights he never imagined. And through it all he discovered the true meaning of life.
Jim Braddock spent the better part of the 1920’s boxing in the light heavyweight division. During this time, he gained a reputation for being a fierce competitor with a right hand punch that could stop a bulldozer. His rise through the professional ranks began in 1926. He won most of his fights and earned a respectable reputation and living. By all accounts Jim Braddock was a successful man with a good life.Like millions of Americans, Jim Braddock lost everything with the Great Depression. With no work available, Jim continued to box in order to provide for his family. Unfortunately, Jim’s boxing career hit the skids during this time. He lost sixteen of twenty two fights. To make matters worse, he shattered his powerful right hand and lost his greatest boxing asset. Under pressure to support his family, Jim quit boxing and filed for government relief. For the next few years, Jim would struggle to make ends meet. He worked odd jobs on the docks and took whatever other work he could find. His family finances grew worse and at times they had very little food or heat for their apartment. It was during these years that Jim Braddock discovered how important his family was to him. Because of this emotional time in his life, Jim would rediscover the true meaning of winning.

Daily Quote: Success is….

“Success is not a matter of luck, not an accident of birth, not a reward for virtue. The most successful people I know are the ones who have something to do, somewhere to be and someone to love. No one is responsible for your success or your joy. You must search for it and be in a continual state of earning it. To merely succeed is not an end in itself. You must use your success to impact other people…to impact the world…to Live Life from the Inside Out. It all starts with the choices you make
—they determine the person you will become.”

The Fundamental Aspect of Success

You know there are no secrets to success. Success with anything, success in anything, has one fundamental aspect – effort. To achieve exponential results requires additional effort …sometimes just “one extra degree.” You know this (and if you didn’t, you do now). Take your courses. Read your books. Listen to your audio programs. But take action. Take action with commitment. Then, when you’re ready for exponential results, apply that extra effort. Sometimes you’ll have immediate exponential results and sometimes you’ll realize the benefits of your extra effort much farther down the road. Regardless, in many cases, it may only be that one extra degree of “heat” that gets you ten times the results you were originally attempting to enjoy. Just remember:

at 211 degrees, water is hot.
at 212 degrees, it boils.
and with boiling water, comes steam…
and with steam, you can power a train.

212° the extra degree

How to achieve results beyond your wildest expectations
