We have all been conditioned to respond the same way to unproductive employees. What seems to get lost in a genuine and earnest effort to "rehabilitate" the unproductive employee is the actual and escalating cost to you to responding in this fashion. As difficult as it may be to overcome these reasons, you must understand that keeping underperforming or problematic employees can cost you far more in the long run -- both financially and non-financially.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 11:30am to 12:45pm
