Developing Performance Goals & Standards
Unless your managers and team leaders are successful in spelling out the organization’s specific goals, their team members are not going to know how to meet those objectives. This module shows trainees how to establish specific, measurable, attainable, results-oriented, and time-framed performance standards. It then illustrates the steps that gain team member agreement and commitment to those performance standards. Upon successful completion of this class, you will be awarded .4 CEUs (Continuing Education Units).  

Providing Performance Feedback
This module shows the way evaluation is done by the experts. First, relevant performance standards are established. Then, the team member’s own performance evaluation is solicited. Once accomplished, the stage is set for a summary evaluation that will be clear and credible to the team member. Upon successful completion of this class, you will be awarded .4 CEUs (Continuing Education Units).

Effective Discipline
Most of us dislike having to discipline team members because feelings can be easily hurt and resentment can linger for a long time. The skills your managers and team leaders will learn in Effective Discipline will preserve team members’ self respect and egos while changing the unacceptable behavior.  This process encourages the best kind of discipline – self-discipline. It also motivates team members to accomplish their goals and work well with the organization. Upon successful completion of this class, you will be awarded .4 CEUs (Continuing Education Units).
