Training Course Syllabus:

Managing and Eliminating Unacceptable Behavior and Other Employee Performance Barriers  -  Management / Leadership Training Seminar

In Managing and Eliminating Unacceptable Behavior and Other Employee Performance Barriers, you'll learn...

  • Understand the baffling reasons why employees who could perform don’t
  • Take control of your toughest performance and attitude problems, confidently and correctly
  • Conduct performance reviews that bring about the positive behavior you expect
  • Coach and give feedback that challenges under-performers to do their best
  • And much more!

You know who they are … the whiners, the complainers, the rule breakers and the excuse makers. The list goes on, but whatever name they go by, they can create an unpleasant atmosphere for everyone, plus put the brakes on office productivity. This workshop shows you the secrets to getting employees to pull their weight and produce the positive results you expect from them—and put a permanent end to bad behaviors and attitudes. Using the proven and easy-to-implement tools taught in this intensive two-day workshop, learn to fairly, legally and confidently confront unacceptable behavior in a way that benefits you, your employees and your organization.
