Dear Chandra,
For the above question, this would be the convincing answer as per HR Strategies……

Provide constructive feedback and try to motivate the employee.
Keep the focus on the performance, not the personality of the employee.
Provide training and development opportunities to the employee.
Discuss and take the employee’s inputs on how to solve the problem.
Plan the course of action and standards in agreement with the employee.

If no improvement takes place, it will lead to take disciplinary action.

So you must know the disciplinary procedure…………….

I hope you understand ……………

An Employee's performance is PERCEIVED to be unsatisfactory. You need to first find out whether the PERCEPTION is based on facts or is OPINIONATED.
Only if you find out the root cause of his "non-Performance", you can find out the correct ways of improving his performance. An employee's performance is dependent on personal factors like initiative, team working, amount of efforts and his caliber. His performance is also dependent on his working conditions, resources at his disposal and co-operation he receives from his seniors, peers and subordinates.
So you need to identify whether it is a skill problem, behavioural problem or systemic problem. You cannot improve a person without his own willingness and hence any path chosen should be with his consent.

the person who interviewed you.....he knew what to do with you when he found your performance often in moments of doubt a mirroring answer is the best.
