Held Hostage by Underperformers 


During this presentation, Nicole will help attendees learn how to deal more effectively with underperforming employees who deflect blame for their inadequacies and who must be dealt with directly. Attendees will learn strategies to deal with employees who have adopted strategies of intimidation in order to fend off negative consequences. Nicole will show you how to take back control through documenting the employee’s behavior and actions.
