A fundamental aspect of effective leadership lies in establishing clear job expectations through a comprehensive position agreement, a document that eliminates ambiguity and fosters accountability. At Built for the Trades, we offer a sample position agreement to facilitate this crucial step. Furthermore, implementing a structured approach like the 3 strike rule for dismissals ensures fairness and transparency in managing team performance.


Step 1: Ensure there’s a signed position agreement outlining their role and responsibilities.

Step 2: If a team member isn’t meeting expectations, have a private 1-on-1 discussion, referencing the position agreement. Issue a Performance Improvement Plan outlining areas for improvement. Both parties sign it, scheduling a follow-up to track progress.

Step 3: If performance issues persist, meet privately with a written warning form. Repeat step 2, but this time with a written warning. Both parties sign ittStep 4: If performance doesn’t improve, issue a second and final written warning. Often, this serves as a wake-up call, prompting the individual to reconsider their position.

Step 5: If there’s still no improvement, proceed with final termination.
