The Power of Positive Discipline


Use the six-step process in this positive discipline video to turn problem employees into valuable contributors.

You have a discipline problem with an employee. You've tried looking the other way. You've tried gentle reminders. Maybe you've even tried getting mad. Nothing changed. So now what do you do? How do you handle the situation in the best possible way for the employee and for your organization?


You'll see the best ways to:

  • Clarify what's expected.
  • Convince the employee that change is necessary.
  • Get the employee's agreement to change.
  • Come up with an action plan together.

This process is not intended as punishment. Instead, these steps help employees satisfy expectations—and possibly save their jobs. And if they do not have a commitment to improve, you will know that you have given them a fair and legal opportunity.

The progressive steps illustrated in this positive discipline video can make working with employees to help them improve their job performance a rewarding part of any manager's or supervisor's job.
