Despite inspired leadership and good hiring, every supervisor has to ultimately deal with someone with Toxic Attitude Syndrome. Employee performance problems often take a lot of energy, emotion and time; whether it is attendance, inability to do good work or just crummy attitude. As a matter of fact, 57 percent of employees have witnessed intimidating or abusive behavior and probably 100 percent work with someone who isn't pulling their weight.

A performance improvement plan (PIP), also known as a performance action plan, is a great way to give struggling employees the opportunity to succeed while still holding them accountable for past performance. It is not always clear why an employee has poor performance. Did he or she not receive appropriate training? Does the employee not understand the expectations of the job? Are there unforeseen roadblocks in the way? Therefore, it is critical to allow for an open dialog and feedback from the employee to help determine whether the employee has been provided all the tools and resources necessary for him or her to be successful. PIPs may be used to address either failures to meet specific job performance-related issues or behavior-related concerns. PIPs may lead to several different outcomes, including improvement in overall performance, the recognition of a skills or training gap, or possible employment actions such as transfer, demotion or termination. Alternatively, a PIP may be used for employees who may be new to a role as a tool to communicate performance expectations.
