You can simply use Difference in Difference (DD) analysis:

Run a regression on the group of managers who take the first (second)
approach. Then predict what would have happened to the performance of
each manager in the case that he/she takes the other approach and use
the -ttest- to see whether the difference is significant.

Note to define dummy variables in any case that variables are ordinal,
i.e., the numerical values have no quantitative meaning

I use this approach quite often. You can look at the second part of my
following paper published in RSUE:

Arbel, Yuval; Ben Shahar,Danny; Gabriel, Stuart  and Yossef Tobol:
"The Local Cost of Terror: Effects of the Second Palestinian Intifada
on Jerusalem House Prices".Regional Science and Urban Economics (2010)
40:  415-426
