Coaching Employee Performance

Have you ever had to work with an employee to improve performance? Have you ever felt like you were at the end of your rope with an employee who just didn’t seem to ‘get it’?

Coaching an employee may be an opportunity for a win/win situation.  While it may seem that you’ve tried everything; trying to understand what the blocks are for the employee, I wonder how many of us think about coaching as opposed to considering discipline, as a way to achieve our goals.

Case Study – Working through a Harassment Complaint

I had a client that was faced with an employee claiming that he had been getting harassed at work.  He felt that the harassment was in violation of his human rights.  The employer was a relatively small company and therefore had no specific policies in place with respect to harassment.  They did not have an employee handbook either, or any kind of documentation for that matter that spoke to behavioural expectations.
