As a manager, it's your job to stop the damage. Todd Dewett shares a repeatable four-step model for getting difficult employees back on track. The course addresses over 15 common difficulties managers experience with employees, including workplace-tested scripts to get each employee back on track. Whether it's a slacker, procrastinator, a gossip, or a bully, this course will help you turn poor performers into valuable team members once again.

Managing a team effectively isn't just about good staffing and then motivating your all stars. Overtime, your best efforts aside, you will face challenging employees. I'm referring to employees who cause unneeded stress at work, whether it's due to low quality performance or personality problems. Very often at work when people see difficult employees, they just avoid them. As the leader, you can't do that. It's your job to stop any damage they're creating and to help them improve as professionals. Think of it this way, most of your team, most of the time, will function effectively.
And your job is to protect them from dynamics that can hurt morale and productivity. Nothing threatens morale and productivity faster than having a member of the team performing or acting inappropriately. In this course I'm gonna not only identify several types of challenging employees you might encounter, but also offer a simple model you can use to more systemically think about how to successfully interact with them. Challenging employees happen, but they don't have to endure. Start learning how to deal with them now.
