Is traditional discipline always the best choice? Are the levels of traditional/progressive discipline (Coaching/counseling, Oral warning, Written Warning, Suspension & finally Termination) our only options? What if there were other choices? What if other approaches could simultaneously encourage an employee's positive & sustained change in behavior while empowering that employee's personal accountability and yet preserving and respect their dignity? This webinar will introduce several alternative approaches designed to evolve the disciplinary process from punishment into empowerment, accountability and longer-term behavior changes.
