60 Minutes

In spite of good hiring and inspired leadership, all supervisors ultimately must deal with someone with Toxic Attitude Syndrome.
Whether it's a crummy attitude, attendance, or just being unable to do good work; employee performance issues often consume large amounts of time, energy, and emotion. In fact, 57% of employees have witnessed abusive or intimidating behavior, and probably 100% work with someone who isn't pulling their weight.

This webinar is designed to give managers insight and tools for effectively dealing with performance issues. It is a challenging job but with the right preparation, we can hold employees accountable and improve our organizations. You will receive several handouts that will act as a toolkit to get you started with your own program.
