M4P: A People-First Performance Management Tool 

The management world is about to be flipped upside down. The revolution has already started, and it’s poised to snowball in the near future. What does this mean? For most, this is going to be great news. 

The new management approach is more dynamic, it’s transparent, and it focuses on the individual. Actionable goals are clearly defined and it’s easier to identify where individuals and teams are in comparison to their goals. Better management comes with better tools, which is why the Manage 4 Performance platform is a must to build engagement, promote performance, and exceed expectations.  

What New Management Means for the Manager 

A great new management system means that managers get to go beyond the annual review, which most people hate anyway, and try a new approach. Having more regular check-ins throughout the year gives everyone a better idea of who is hitting deadlines and succeeding at their job and who is falling behind.  

It also means getting to know your individual employees better. This can be a bit of a challenge in the beginning but when you know what makes people tick and what they’re interested in, you can better adapt their role to maximize their skills and passions. 

What New Management Means for the Employee 

Obviously, a new management approach will greatly affect the employee and it should be in a very beneficial way. Initially, it might feel like you’re being held accountable more often than you were before – and you are – but it’s not because you did anything wrong. This new accountability keeps you apprised of what tasks need to be done and what are your top priorities. It lets you focus and be more effective. 

An added benefit is that you can identify your pain points in your job and possibly find a way around them. When management sees that you are not doing as well in one area, perhaps they can find someone else to take on that task so you can focus on your strengths. Or maybe you were never trained properly and all you need is a few additional skills to feel confident. Whatever it is, modern management can help you succeed and hit the career goals you desire. 

What Is New Management 

The new management is currently growing out of a need to have better hands-on management in the workplace and to support individual growth. For Manage 4 Performance (M4P) that means putting the People First. 

The Manage 4 Performance is a dashboard that is used by everyone in the company to track performance and to add immediate transparency to daily tasks. It boosts engagement, gives management a heads up on where their team is, and lets employees know what their priorities are. 

M4P is not the only approach to a new, more engaged management style but it’s the best one out there. Why? Because it puts People First. 

M4P and People First 

A robust management platform isn’t just for management, it’s for the people. That’s what is at the heart of M4P, creating a place where everyone feels supported in their job and their efforts. They’re seen by management for their individual contributions and, in some situations, for their shortcomings. But what might be most important, they can express their personal career goals and work to achieve them. 

Here are just some of the ways M4P puts People First.  

  1. It’s about holistic coaching, not just performance. Oftentimes, management platforms focus on one thing – performance. They track results-oriented data only, causing employees to feel micromanaged and undervalued. Not the case with M4P. Instead of focusing only on performance, it takes a holistic view of coaching – looking at the whole person. Are there skills that can be developed to help them achieve their professional goals? What motivates them to excel? How do they feel appreciated and what types of rewards/recognition would be most meaningful to them? With M4P, it’s about bringing out the best in every employee so your team wins together. 
  2. Increases communication and clarity with consistent manager-employee check-ins. M4P encourages and makes it easy for managers and employees to touch base more regularly because it provides a template of what needs to be discussed. Managers can be bogged down with calendars loaded with meetings and an overflowing inbox, left with little to no time to prep for a one-on-one conversation with employees. M4P eliminates that problem by outlining exactly what to address, whether it’s a brief check in or an in-depth formal review. 
  3. Provides visibility on individual, team, and company performance with a customizable dashboard. Companies are equipped to measure success relative to their individual employees’ actual performance objectives, not just vague feelings or ideas. This removes the guesswork so every employee knows where they stand, where they are excelling, and how they can improve. It also minimizes bias and subjectivity in management decisions.  
  4. Makes feedback instantaneous and trackable. Managers can provide employees with real time feedback, both celebratory and constructive, which helps employees grow. When an employee receives feedback, it lives in the system for them to review whenever they’d like.  
  5. Feedback goes both ways. Not only can employees receive feedback quickly and effectively, they also can provide feedback to their managers any time they’d like. Employees want to know that their opinions matter, plus it’s a win for employers as they gain insight and perspectives they otherwise would’ve missed out on.  
  6. Includes in-depth training for managers to coach by putting their People First. If we’re being honest, not everyone is a naturally stellar manager, graced with the innate ability of bringing people together and drawing out their strengths. Sometimes (oftentimes), managers need a bit of support to thrive in their role. M4P gets ahead of this by offering managers both on demand and real time support and training opportunities to know what it means to put their People First.  

            When you think about it, M4P is the scoreboard for true teamwork. A successful team understands individual strengths and weaknesses and comes together to smooth out the process like a well-oiled machine.
