Why book this course?
One of the least pleasant aspects of management is having to deal with staff who are not performing to an acceptable standard. While rare, this situation can be difficult for all parties, with a variety of reasons why an employee might be underperforming. Addressing these issues requires a deft touch and strong interpersonal skills.
This course explores the practical steps that managers can take, as well as the legal implications of managing poor performance and difficult behaviour. You will learn about the reasons for poor performance, how to motivate people, how to identify issues from bullying to inappropriate behaviour, and how to support and reward positive progress.
