Improving Employee Performance in Everyday Work Situations & Reviews

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.

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.
