Tell the employee, with specific examples, where results fell short and what results were expected. Tell the employee your expectations for the job. Ask for feedback and listen carefully to find out what’s not being done and why. There may be more than one "gray area" in the employee’s understanding of what’s expected. Discuss and agree on an action plan for what the employee will do to get the results you want.
