Virtual Protocol:

Participants will be asked to leave their video on throughout the entire class. If an attendee needs to step away during class, they are asked to mute and leave their camera on leaving an empty chair to show they are unavailable. This is similar to traditional classroom etiquette; it allows the instructor to see that a participant is not available and limits the possibility that an attendee would be called on when not available.

Instructors will provide interactive group discussions, breakout sessions, worksheets, and interactive polling questions. Instructors will also provide a 10-minute break each hour to allow attendees the opportunity to stretch.

This virtual protocol is designed to encourage engagement and show respect for the group discussions and the instructor. Participants without video will be asked to register for a future in person class. For questions about virtual protocol and participant expectations, please call Johnnieanne at 845-565-1355.

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.
