Many supervisors and managers dislike giving employees needed feedback about surfing the internet, not following procedures correctly, criticizing other employees, or delivering poor customer service. Supervisors and managers fear employees will become defensive, or the result will be an unproductive and emotionally-draining argument. So feedback gets delayed, allowing costly work behaviors to continue.
Receive step-by-step guidance on how to give employees feedback to gain their cooperation to improve performance. Also learn two skills to resolve employee defensiveness if it occurs, and issues that are often behind it. Plus, learn how to give positive feedback effectively, something most managers don't do. These skills are also highly beneficial during performance evaluations.
Actual workplace situations will be used for demonstration. A Learning Guide and Skill Reinforcement Cards will be provided.
