Description: No one likes to break bad news – especially when you’re a manager. When performance is subpar – or an employee’s conduct is undermining team morale and cohesiveness – a conversation is needed. It won’t be easy. Some employees will argue, blame, and threaten. Others will make empty promises or withdraw. How do you reach these employees? And how can return them to being the energized employees they were when hired them? In this course, Plachy will teach students how to prepare for such conversations, demonstrating through role plays the approaches that produce long-lasting change – and those that worsen the situation.

Review: No reviews.
