Leadership Defense: Verbal & Documented Disciplinary Interventions

Register Here

Turn around employee performance and insulate your company from liability

In this 75-minute webinar training, explore creative approaches to constructive confrontation with employees, including:

  • Constructive conversations that demand greater accountability and raise employee awareness, both in terms of performance and conduct

  • Formal progressive disciplinary documentation techniques to reset expectations and accord due process

  • Structuring terminations or layoffs based on the written record at hand

It’s time to align your leadership team and provide them with the leadership tools for holding their team members accountable.

Whether your managers require additional support with verbal engagement or formal corrective action delivery, this workshop will make it easier for them to confront problems at work head-on and in a more strategic yet compassionate and supportive way. The goal will be to shift responsibility for improvement away from your organization and back to the employee—where it rightfully belongs—all the while protecting your company from the liability inherent in the discipline and termination process.

Great leaders aren’t simply born—leadership is a muscle that can strengthen over time. It’s time to align your leadership teams with your expectations of how they treat their employees, spike performance, protect the organization, and exercise leadership wisdom that gets their teams to deliver consistently at a higher performance level.

On February 10, learn how to conduct tough conversations, document a foolproof corrective action, and create “clean" terminations. Join leadership expert Paul Falcone to discover front-line strategies and tactics regarding leadership defense. Most importantly, focus on leadership wisdom to align your frontline operational leadership team surrounding this challenging engagement.
