Beyond training: Diagnosing problems with employee performance
25 February 2021 |1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST
Global Wizdom is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP. This program is valid for 1.5 PDCs for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP.
Key Take Away:
• Describe step by step how to diagnose problems with worker job performance
• Explain how to use diagnostic information to select practical and cost-effective solutions to employee performance problems
• Examine well-known models that describe various root causes of worker performance problems—and what to do about them
Managers often confront problems with worker behavior or job performance. Yet solving those problems is not a topic in business education, and even MBA holders (and HR practitioners!) have not been given instruction on how to diagnose problems with human performance and how to find cost-effective solutions to those problems. Often managers, since they have not been properly trained, will confused symptoms and signs with root causes (example: “turnover is our problem!”—yet turnover is a symptom and not a root cause.) In this session, learn ways to separate symptoms from root causes and diagnose what causes problems with worker performance. Find ways to solve those problems.
Why Should You Attend:
Choosing the wrong solutions to human performance problems is the same as malpractice in medicine. If medical doctors treat the pain rather than the cause of the pain, they will be the focus of malpractice suits. But managers often mistake symptoms for root causes. The result is management malpractice. It can result in lawsuits for improper decisions about worker employment, engagement issues, turnover, and many other negative consequences. Avoid those problems by attending this workshop.
Areas Covered in the Session:
• Terms and Concepts
• The Importance of Diagnosing Worker Performance Problems
• Describing and Applying a Step-by-Step Model to Diagnose and Solve Worker Performance Problems
