This two day training program provides a comprehensive approach to handling everyday performance problems POSITIVELY. You’ll discover techniques for working with your unsatisfactory employee to address performance issues with specific, genuine and timely responses, and practice techniques for positive results.

The Proven Strategy that Turns Problem Employees into Superior Performers

You’ve tried reprimands, warnings, demotions, probations, and unpaid suspensions. So why do discipline problems still persist in your organization?

The traditional approaches to handling problem employees do not work for a simple reason. “It may be possible to punish people into compliance, but we cannot punish people into commitment.” Commitment is what today’s organizations require.

This training program will provide you with a proven management technique for handling unsatisfactory employees, and help you to handle a disciplinary interview with confidence. This recommended system replaces existing punitive disciplinary policies with an affirmative program that:

  • Makes problem employees take personal responsibility for their actions
  • Avoids confrontational, anger-provoking situations that can damage relationships and sometimes even lead to violence
  • Salvages potentially good employees who have gotten off the track
  • Provides sample dialogues, role plays and documentation

Installed in thousands of companies across the country, if you’re seeking a positive non punitive approach which corrects the problem and does not punish the employee, this program is for you!

Who Should Attend – All individuals who manage or lead personnel and have performance/behavioral goals that must be met.
