Description: 

This class is full and is waiting list only

This class combines two topics for an interesting perspective on leadership and impact in the workplace; employee motivation and discipline. The foundation for effective supervisory relationships is understanding what motivates employees. Too often managers give up and say, “They just aren’t motivated.” The next common steps are to tolerate a difficult situation or seek ways to get the employee fired, or at least transferred.

Beginning with an understanding of motivation leaders can identify motivators and work to eliminate those things that get in the way; potential de-motivators. Understanding motivation and building a strong relationship makes coaching conversations easier and more successful. Using a framework for coaching, the GROW Model, coaching conversations will be more consistently on target. Coaching is an essential tool but when applied correctly and results don’t change, or when serious rule infractions occur, managers and supervisors need to go to the next step of disciplinary action. Participants leave the session with core skills and techniques to enhance leadership effectiveness.
