Duration: This is a full day class (6.5 – 7 hours). The course can be divided into two half-day sessions (the second day should be scheduled within a week of Day One). Employers need to allow employees at least one hour in addition to class time to complete their writing assignments (see below).
Class Size: Approximately 15-20 is best.
Audience: Supervisors and Managers
This class covers the legal standards and best practices related to day-to-day management, progressive discipline and corrective action. Following the lecture and case studies, we discuss general results of the class members’ writing assignments followed by 1-on-1 conferences to discuss individual results.
Note: Employees who will be attending this course will be provided with hypotheticals approximately two weeks prior to the course and are expected to submit their writing projects to the instructor via email at least three days before the class. The brief writing assignment normally will include elements of general employee coaching (minor misconduct/failure to meet standards), a reprimand, positive evaluation and negative evaluation and/or a discipline recommendation.
