Abstract:

A training program was developed to improve the performance of low performers LPs aboard a Navy combatant ship. Workshops were conducted for the LPs, all supervisory personnel aboard their ship, and a smaller group of supervisors selected as mentors. The LPs performance ratings, including supervisory evaluations and disciplinary records, were obtained before and after the training and used to assess improvements. Results indicated that, after training, the LPs received significantly higher supervisory evaluations and committed fewer disciplinary offenses compared to controls.
