Program Details

Discipline & Termination: the Movie

Key Objectives

1. Understand a different perspective on the discipline process
2. Learn tips and strategies for successful communication of expectations
3. Identify what goes wrong and why
4. Learn about documentation and “how to say it” strategies.

Do you put off handling difficult discipline discussions? Have you ever “had enough” and said “you're fired”. The discipline process is like a movie; with staging, actors, props, rehearsal, scripts and you are the star. This presentation will give you tips and strategies to direct an Oscar winning movie. You will learn where we go wrong, how to handle the problem "stars", how to prepare for the rehearsal and how to understand the discipline process.
