These are lagging performers whose current score is in the C range. They are in need of some extra coaching. Monitor these team members closely to understand what is standing in the way of their success.
What is standing in the way of your success?
What are the biggest challenges you are facing?
How can I help or support you better?
You have the potential to be steady performer, so what are some things that you can focus on to jumpstart improvement?
I am confident in your potential!
It starts with you.
Sometimes C-players merely fill a role and sometimes that's enough.
But a C-player with potential to do more and be more will never be fully satisfied or motivated with remaining a C-player.
Properly educated on the correct steps to take and an improvement path to follow, a C-player can grow into a B-player or even more and give your organization much more than merely someone filling a role.
It's worth the effort to invest time in a C-player who you think has the capacity to grow.
Good leadership consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people.
The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.
