Underperformance Management course enables managers and supervisors to know when and how to hold staff to account and to hopefully skill staff up to be able to do the work required or know when and how to legally terminate their employment. This is a great course that balances the legal requirements of how to performance manage an employee with the best skills on when and how to do it.
In an engaging, content rich, practical workshop, managers will learn the process for performance managing staff both in relation to the legal framework and the skills required to have the conversations. There is the option of the use of professional actors in the afternoon to allow opportunity for the participants to practice the content learnt in the morning.
