As part of Avondale Industries’ performance management initiative, the training and
development director was asked to customize a training program that would increase managers’
ability to manage the performance of their employees through coaching and feedback. Because
most of Avondale’s managers have been promoted from within the company, they lack skills that
are needed to lead their employees. Training on how to coach through a more hands-on approach
to performance management was offered in a modular format. Choose the best reason why
improving managers’ skills in coaching and feedback is an important part of the company’s
performance management initiative.
Managers who are trained to give accurate and timely feedback are more likely
willing to listen to employees’ concerns and be ready to help when needed.
Improving managers’ skills in coaching and feedback allows them to stay in touch
with the day-to-day struggles and accomplishments of their employees.
Managers with good coaching and feedback skills help employees achieve their goals
by reducing barriers to good performance, thus helping the company achieve its goals.
Managers who develop good coaching and feedback skills are more likely to
continue to be promoted to higher leadership positions.

The HR department at Avondale Industries wants to improve their performance management
process and be more transparent about how performance reviews are tied to rewards
(promotions, salary increases, bonuses, trainings, and so forth). One of the initial steps in this
continuous improvement process was having the training and development office educate all
employees on what constitutes high performance and how high performance would be
recognized and rewarded in the company. Which of the following statements best explains how
setting high-performance work standards and rewarding those who perform well benefits the
company?
Setting high performance work standards is essential if the company wants to
improve its performance in the market and create value for its customers.
Knowing what high-performance expectations are helps the company identify those
that are not meeting expectations, and the company can let them go if production
declines.
Recognizing high performance and tying it to rewards and recognition has been
proven to increase productivity and profitability, lower turnover, and improve the
company’s value.
When an employee knows what is expected, they are much more likely to be happy

The finance department at Avondale Industries is updating their software platform, and the
training and development office has been asked to work with the department to provide training
for their financial analysts. The training will be conducted in a computer lab where all
participants will be able to use a dedicated computer. One of the long-time employees has
developed retinitis pigmentosa, which limits her field of vision. The trainer was told that for the
training the employee will need a computer that has a larger-than-typical screen and a black
background with white letters. Arranging for a larger screen in the lab that will meet the
employee’s needs is proving to be a hassle for the trainer. Why is it necessary to accommodate
these special needs
If the training is required for her job, the trainer is obligated by law to provide
anything the financial analyst needs to be successful.
It is necessary to make the accommodations for the financial analyst because the
company wants to be known for treating people with disabilities well.
If the financial analyst can participate in the training with reasonable
accommodations, the trainer is obligated by law to meet the special needs.
Making accommodations for the financial analyst will make it more likely the
company will be able to retain her as an employee.

Four months ago, an outstanding salesperson was transferred from Avondale Industries’
headquarters in Arizona to their avionics division in Brisbane, Australia, to help promote and sell
a new product being released in the region. Previously, the salesperson had been a high
performer, but shortly after arriving in Brisbane he began to miss quotas and became a problem
employee. While he was still pleasant to be around, it was apparent he lacked the motivation he
had previously exhibited in his job. His manager, who had recruited him to the job because of his
previous success, was at a loss and requested help from HR. Which of the following advice
might best help the sales manager improve the performance management process for this
employee?
The sales manager needs to motivate the employee. Giving him more work might
