You're Not the Boss of Me!
Effective Management of Employees
Workplace productivity and morale depends in large part upon the quality and skill of your supervisors. A common mistake is to promote the "best" or "most senior" employee to a supervisory position, with little regard for leadership skills. Once in the position, most supervisors are not trained on effective management techniques to motivate and evaluate employees.
In this interactive seminar, employment law attorney Jonathan Light will discuss the effective and lawful supervision of California employees.
Topics covered will include:
- What key qualities should you look for in a supervisor?
- Motivating employees
- Counseling and disciplining employees
- Evaluations (annual and periodic)
- The "coaching" model of supervision
- Proper wording in disciplinary memos
- Easy documentation (really!)
- Using probationary status and PIPs effectively
- When the employee blames everyone else
- When termination is the only answer
