"I used to be a member of this team. Now I'm the manager. Do I really have to discipline the non-performers?"

Discussing work performance, especially when that performance does not meet expectations, can be difficult. No one likes to get negative feedback - and giving it can be just as unappealing. But disciplining team members and eliminating performance problems, is a critical management skill. Like most management skills, it is a skill that must be developed to be effective.

Effective Discipline provides the tools necessary to dramatically reduce problem behaviors. By involving team members in performance discussions and gaining their commitment to behavioral change, managers can turn a potentially negative interaction into a positive developmental step.

Program Description
Delivery Options: Classroom, Online, and Blended
Effective Discipline helps managers learn effective techniques for addressing problem behavior. Using communication skills, the manager works to preserve the individual's self-respect and encourage the best kind of discipline - self-discipline.

Throughout the workshop, managers will review video presentations and case studies, participate in group discussions, practice new skills, and receive immediate feedback. Managers leave the workshop with implementation tools, troubleshooting guides and additional resources to help them apply the skills they have learned on the job.

This 4-hour workshop is designed for 6-18 participants and includes the following:

  • Discipline Focusing on Behavior
  • Self-Discipline
  • Using Positive Discipline To Encourage Self-Discipline
  • Documenting the Discipline
