2 Continuous Improvement Discussion is: A 15 to 20 minute discussion on employeeperformance and behaviorA feedback mechanism of each superior to aidemployee development and growthA practical assessment tool to complementtraining, regularization or promotion decisionsHere are a few tips on how you can conduct theCID…
3 Continuous Improvement Discussion Begin the CID by establishing a casual and comfortable environment. Essentially, it should be able to encourage honest communication between employee and superior.Start with the usual pleasantries and engage the employee in a conversational mood.“So, how are you today?” “How have you been?” “Did you have a great weekend?” “How’s work?”Establish the importance of the feedback session.“The reason why we are having this discussion today is just to exchange feedback on where you are with your work.”Proceed with the CID by identifying the following:“What were your deliverables for the past 6 months?”“What specific actions were you expected to take to achieve them?How did you fare in accomplishing them? Are you behind, on track or done? How so?
4 Continuous Improvement Discussion The STAR method can also be used as a guide to clearly describe the employee’s deliverables and their expected results:Situation: Can you give examples of situations (i.e. projects) you were involved in over the past 6 months?Example: Booking processTask: What were your specific tasks/duties? Did you encounter hurdles along the way?Example: Handle buyers’ inquiries and requestsAction: What did you do to accomplish the task/s? Why did you choose that course of action? How did you address the hurdles, if there are any?Example: Address 20 requests a day and create a system to monitor themResult: What was the result of your actions? Was that the outcome you were aiming for? What is the impact of the result to your group?Example: No backlogs in buyers’ requests.
5 Continuous Improvement Discussion By identifying key deliverables, the first part allows the employee and his/her superior to focus more on the employee’s technical competencies (skills needed to accomplish his/her tasks).On the other hand, the second part focuses on behavioral competencies (attitudes) that the employee needs to:STARTSTOPCONTINUE
6 Continuous Improvement Discussion In order to achieve deliverables, technical skills must be supported by behavioral competencies.As such, the superior and employee must be able to identify behavioral cues that the employee needs to START doing in order to deliver the output:Example:“I think it would be best that you START communicating more often with other operating units to strengthen your relationship with them”“I think it would be best to START creating a timetable of activities and deliverables so you can manage your workload better”
7 “I think you need to STOP procrastinating to avoid backlogs” Continuous Improvement DiscussionSimilarly, behavioral cues that needed to be STOPPED should be identified. These are behaviors that are not contributing to the employee’s performance.Example:“I think you need to STOP procrastinating to avoid backlogs”“You panic easily and lose your cool under stressful situations. Because of that, I feel that you need to STOP giving in to pressure so easily so you can handle your work better.”
8 Continuous Improvement Discussion Lastly, the superior and employee should also highlight behaviors that should be CONTINUED. These are behaviors that contributed to the success of his output in the past 6 months and must be encouraged as the employee takes on new tasks in the future.Example:“You were very involved in the project I asked you to be a part of. You should continue showing the same enthusiasm moving forward.”“You were able to provide a great alternative to the process. I believe it is best if you continue sharing your ideas and innovation to the team.”
