Managing Performance incorporating Discipline and Incapacity Management

2 Day Workshop

HOW TO GET YOUR PEOPLE TO WORK FOR YOU

In our research on good management skills relating to people, we have found that performance management is a neglected and poorly developed area. Supervisors and managers are appointed with little training, and once appointed; they also receive very little support.

We touch on modern trends in the performance management of people – taking elements of the balanced score-card approach, performance management through coaching and what to do when things go wrong with performance. Our course starts with basic knowledge of managing discipline and incapacity and applies the Code of Good Practice (Schedule 8 of the Labour Relations Act, Act 66 of 1995). Both are stand-alone modules and may be held together or with the option of only choosing one of the modules.
