10 Ways to Kickstart Underachievers

When you hear the word “underachiever”, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Most likely, it’s the name of a previous coworker or employee.

What happened to that underachiever? When it comes to poor performance, a manager generally has two options:

  1. Terminate the employee, or...
  2. Try to help the employee
Unfortunately, managers usually choose the first option based on the assumption poor performance is always the employee's fault. In reality, there are many reasons for poor performance, some easily correctable, and others directly tied to the manager themselves.

Before pulling out that pink slip, try to help an underachieving employee. This article in lists 10 ways to potentially do just that.

I personally like number 5. Having the right tools to work with can make all the difference, for any employee or company. For example, look at what this company was able to accomplish with the right tools.
