Last week, in this new mini-series Virtual People & Performance Management we shared practical advice on the importance of setting clear expectations. Without doubt, we must follow with Regular Reviews. After all, high performance is not accidental. It's a process.

In this episode we focus on Regular Review's through formal or informal 1 to 1’s or check-ins. Indeed, this is proven to be the key to sustained high performance against expectations. Furthermore, we explore how this new, virtual environment could be the catalyst to establish new norms. Thus, overcoming historical weakness in this crucial area.


  • Certainly, many Managers and Employees are used to transactional interactions. With no structure applied to routine and regular reviews.
  • Interestingly, when we conducted a survey in 2019 on the frequency of 1 to 1's there was a disconnect between Managers and Employees. Indeed, only 17% of Employees reported having a pre-diarised schedule of reviews.
  • The PERFORM Model can be applied as a whole and to each review. Furthermore, creating this structure results in high performance.
  • Without doubt, we must be more observant in this hybrid, virtual world. Without the day to day interactions we should ensure focus on noticing behaviours. Indeed, we put People First in our interactions.


  • ‘More so than ever we must take time to 'start with the person’'
  • ‘Follow the pattern for reviews - Supportive, Structured and Predictable’
  • ‘Energise and Motivate Employees with a burst of Management energy!'
  • ‘High Performance isn't accidental, it's a process built on trust’
