The question I get a lot is, “when should a supervisor issue a PIP”? First, performance  improvement plans are not to be ‘issued’ like you would a speeding ticket. PIP’s should  be designed as helpful tools to assist employees on their path to performance  improvement and success. Second, this type of tool can be initiated at any time the  supervisor and/or the employee identifies a weak area that needs to be worked on. 

Shifting the concept of the purpose of PIP’s can go a long way in achieving positive and  lasting results. This course reviews 7 steps in a PIP process, including the purpose of  PIP’s, communication skills, and what to do when outcomes are achieved, or not. 

With this resource-loaded, fast-paced, and relatable course, you will receive tools, tips,  and techniques to use to successfully lead your team. By the conclusion of this training,  you will have actionable items and tools to implement the learning objectives and achieve  sustained success.  

This is a PowerPoint instructor-led presentation that includes lecture, audience  participation, key takeaway action plans, and is qualifiable for 1.0 CEUs/instruction hour.
