A decision had to be taken so I made my to do list of the process I would follow.
- Counsel the reportee
- Come to an agreement on the methodology of reaching the target
- Monitor achievement
- Involve my boss in the process
- Involve HR in the process
- Go back to point 1
Response from reportee on the above points
- Am doing the best i can
- There is no better way to do this
- Am doing the best I can
- Why is he asking me questions
- I am the best guy for the job and I can prove it
I had already resigned myself to my fate when my boss called me.. he was livid! And he started like this..
“…. If you cant manage your people, then I will get someone else to manage them…” oh! My…
So, I started again… From point 1
- Listen buddy.. You are in real danger of losing your job if the said targets are not in place.. Your counterparts are at 90% so whats your problem
- Now I would be happy if you could take your achievements to 75- 80%.. this quarter.. Then we will push for next quarter.. Ok!
- You can do it.. I will travel with you and meet your touch points for this month
- Made a complete PIP plan and mailed it with copy to boss..
- … And HR
Reaponse from reportee… Applied for 15 day leave
Response from Boss… “Kill him”
What should be my course of action… Anybody!
