Given that most employees want to succeed, the best way to allow them to do that is to provide clear direction, regular information about how they are doing and access to the coaching they need to continually improve over time. Effective performance feedback is given and received as an opportunity for growth and development. This creates a motivating environment for employees to excel and minimizes performance problems or the need for corrective action procedures.
