A highly interactive and practical 2-day training workshop that will equip line managers with the necessary interpersonal, coaching and counseling skills to address poor employee performance and behavior, and improve their motivation and productivity.


This skills-packed workshop is aimed at all levels of management, including team leaders.


At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understanding the three main cause categories of poor performance or behavior, in order to identify the root cause/s.
  • Understanding and utilizing 13 skills of good performance coaches.

2. Conduct a PERFORMANCE COUNSELING INTERVIEW whenever an employee's work performance or behavior falls well below standard, or is repeatedly below standard, by:

  • Understanding when stronger action than coaching is required.
  • Gathering the necessary information, and planning an appropriate counseling strategy (considering the personality of the employee).
  • Following a proven performance counseling process.
  • Being firm regarding nonnegotiable performance standards.
  • Not getting personal, but sticking to the facts, and pointing out the negative impact of unacceptable performance or behavior.

  • Retaining - and even enhancing - the employee's level of self-esteem, motivation and loyalty.
  • Understanding both the employee's and the employer's legal rights with respect to performance counseling.

  • Continual performance improvement and increased productivity.
