Managing & Supervising Difficult Feedback & Tough Conversations With Challenging Employees

Webinar Background, Agenda & Trainer Profile :

Supervising a difficult feedback session with a challenging/toxic employee can worsen the situation if not handled appropriately. It is every employer’s nightmare to ensure such employee’s cooperation while providing him/her with a tough feedback or handling a difficult conversation. Research has proved that it is very common for such employees to take your suggestions with a negative mindset and disregard your feedback if the whole process is not done carefully. Such conversations often bring about a lot of negative reactions, including blame, excuses, and complaints. This often results in unproductive work behaviors. This unproductive work behavior costs the organizations hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars, while creating much frustration and stress. Often communication can break down when managers have to deliver tough news about substandard performance, workplace change, team conflict, or any number of other problems. Many employees enter the workplace with anger management, substance abuse, mental health, and personal issues that overflow into the workplace. This session is geared to provide valuable insights on communicating with problem employees and dealing with challenging situations, and managing employee feedback.
