The Art of Leadership Defense -- Verbal and Documented Disciplinary Interventions
In-Person Monday 06/12/2023 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Organization (Technical), Workplace (Technical) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Verbal and documented disciplinary interventions can turn around problematic employee performance/conduct and minimize employment-related liability. 


The path of least resistance is avoidance, and many managers shy away from potentially confrontational discussions with or disciplinary actions for their employees. Further, they tend to engage in grade inflation during annual performance reviews and avoid formal corrective action for fear of angering or demotivating their staffers--or possibly to be the 'good guy' who turns a blind eye to both performance and conduct challenges.  But it doesn't have to be that way.

Learning Objectives:

  • Constructive conversations that demand greater accountability and employee awareness, both in terms of performance and conduct.
  • Formal progressive disciplinary documentation techniques to reset expectations and accord due process.
  • Structuring terminations and/or layoffs based on the written record at hand.
