Everything you need to coach employees and get troubled performers back on track 

Confronting employees about poor performance is an ordeal dreaded by managers and HR pros everywhere. The possibility of emotional outbursts―and the specter of a lawsuit―leave many would-be disciplinarians at a loss.

  • identify problems early on
  • decide when discipline is necessary
  • choose the right response to a problem
  • engage employees in improving performance
  • collaborate with employees to come up with solutions
  • fire employees when necessary
  • protect against wrongful termination lawsuits
