Almost every employee wants to be productive and succeed in the workplace. They need guidance and understanding more than threats and warnings. To prevent future problems in the workplace and improve your management skills, learn how to implement positive discipline.   This highly participatory and interactive, one-day training workshop is designed to provide managers with an understanding of how to implement constructive disciplinary steps that makes you a better manager and shows employees that you are invested in their success.  If you struggle with creating productive employees that understand why it is important to follow protocols and comply with organization directives, this workshop is for you.

Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish between job performance and work habits
  • Understand the importance of dealing with unsatisfactory work habits early on, before they require disciplinary action
  • Recognize when to use coaching vs. positive discipline (or other direction)
  • Explain clearly and specifically to a employee the nature of his/her unsatisfactory work, focusing on behavior rather than personality or attitude
  • Involve the employee in the process of correcting unsatisfactory behavior through an interactive process that maintains the team member’s self-esteem
  • Ensure employee accountability by getting the employee to commit to a clear plan of action
  • Understand the importance of complete and timely documentation
  • Understand how to improve the quality of work by building effective partnerships with your employee
  • Provide regular, constructive feedback so employees always know where they stand
