Specific instances needed to be cited to back-up any negative ratings or comments.  Managers should review all previous reviews and any disciplinary actions regarding an employee prior to the meeting. Only issues that has been related with the employee in some way should be included as part of the review.

Be Honest

Managers should always stay calm. Defensive or argumentative behavior by an employee should not distract the Manager should not be distracted from delivering a complete and honest assessment if an employee arguments and defenses the process. The manager has to remain calm, handle the situation authoritatively, and be resolute in taking the next action steps

It’s obviously quite natural for people to resist change and this factor must be dealt with if you are to insure progress and success.

    Confrontations are inevitable in today’s organizational environment. However, the negative aspect arises when a “win-lose” resolution is achieved. This module provides a framework for producing “win-win” solutions through a proven problem-solving approach. This skill is a “must” for leaders who recognize the importance of dealing with controversial issues that are negatively impacting productivity.
  • Corrective Action Techniques
    Corrective action is often mentally linked to having to deal with a problem employee in a negative situation. Yet, many cases which require corrective action may very well deal with an exceptional employee in a very positive situation. The common denominator, or course, is the simple fact that persistent, unproductive behavior must be corrected as soon as possible for the benefit of everyone involved. This module includes methods for taking prompt action to correct performance problems in a very positive way.
